    Oh, how I would LOVE to play in your ringbox :kiss2:

    Is the one between the ruby and sapphire - white with YG milgrain edges - a Tiffany?

    Which do you wear most with your new Margot?

    Are they all yellow and white? Any pink gold? A bit hard to tell - some look rosy...

    How often do you skip the solitaire and just stack? :mrgreen2:

    Edit - you’ll hear no judgement from me, ma’am. I have an earrings problem - I’ve got only two ears, I’ve always had only two ears, but that reality has very little impact on my decision-making ::)

    Me too me too! I read all of @cegs posts today as had the day of work lol.

    After seeing those gorgeous bands on the other thread I am almost feeling annoyed that I'm planning a reset of my ruby and thinking not to wear a wedding band. Mainly cos the style is possibly going to be a vertical 3 stone and as long as possible.

    Maybe a right hand stack of mixed metals for me down the track.

    Love to see more photos ceg!

    Wow - endless perms and coms! You have a stunning band collection, @ceg

    (And if I ever break a finger, I want a splint just like this!)

    So, yes I am a band hoarder. And this picture is almost shameful, lol.

    Sometimes I look in my box and think I am crazy but I really love them!

    All of them are yg and platinum. Most are 18k since I really like a rich gold. The wide plain bands are 22k. All but 3 are full eternity. The polished wide gold band is antique and has a "royal gold" look; that's probably why it looks more pink @yssie. The platinum and yg plain band is Tiffany.

    I wear some of them a lot more than others. I am finding that stacking Serendipity is a bit different than Dahlia. The bands I wear the most now are EW Helena (yg), EW Lily (yg), VC u cut pave (plat) and WF bead set (yg).

    I wear my ering every day so it's the topper! I am quite fortunate that my left and right ring fingers are very close in size so almost all bands work for both hands (in winter anyway). Rh stacks are fun and easy to wear. I won't wear a true rhr because it's too much for my lifestyle but I rock a lot of right hand stacks.

    I will try to get better pictures today.

    @yssie asked me to post a photo last night so the pic above isn't the best. I will try to get nice pics today!

    Also, @missy, my man hands are made for stacking. I can easily stack 4 without them being close to my knuckle. This is one big plus for huge hands. When I first came on ps I saw so many tiny fingers! I was really down on my hands until I realized they work so well for mixing it up. Plus my size (6.5) is often the floor size so I can find them for less money!!!! My knuckle is also larger than the base of my finger so this is also conducive to my obsession!

    @ceg - your collection is amazing! It's a perfect collection, just need to add some rose gold! Just to have all of your bases covered, of coarse!:mrgreen2:

    @yssie - I would love to see your earring collection. I have seen a few here and there, but I don't think that I have seen a thread showing all of your beauties together.

    @ceg -

    I've always said you had the best band collection on PS! Just amazing!

    Ceg, while you're posting photos of your bands, would you also be able to post a photo of your diamond rings also? Serendipity? Dahlia? Margot? I'm a bit lost and need a 'Ceg's Jewelry Refresher'!!

    Yall are all so sweet! :kiss2: My band collection exposes my neurotic tendencies as well. I love to see glorious CS RHRs but I won't wear them. It's crazy but I would rock a 5ct MRB solitaire and think nothing of it but a large CS or a halo would make me self conscious, lol. So I like bands because they are subtle enough to wear daily and I can have different looks very easily. Here are a few of my go to stacks. These have been curated carefully. I don't like a matchy look and want to appear carefree and cool. :mrgreen2:This is very similar to my daughter spending 10 minutes on her "messy bun." Told you I was neurotic! :roll2:

    @mrs-b I don't have nearly the collection of a lot of psers but I love all my pieces and I know that they get worn, which is very important to me. Unworn jewelry gives me guilt and anxiety and I don't have room for that! I still have CvB Dahlia but wf set it with a cz and I haven't picked it up yet. Serendipity is my name for my ER Margot that I AM CRAZY ABOUT. So other than a rose cut by CvB and a 5 stone (ACAs and DK), I just have a lot of bands.

    Just curious - what did your original engagement ring/wedding band look like? Do you still have them? I have my setting and band but not the diamond.

    I have the setting but it doesn't have stones. It was a 3 stone with a 1.3ct (poorly cut but beautiful to me) early MRB with sapphire sides and a plain wg band. I loved it and proudly wore it for 16 years. I had the diamond set in a CvB Astrid pendant and the sapphires set in a bangle by CvB. The bangle is gorgeous but I rarely wear bracelets and it is one piece that I probably shouldn't have made. :(2 I wear the pendant a lot though.

    Ceg,
    You have so many gorgeous and carefully curated pieces, but you obviously have a very artful and creative eye as to how you combine them! All of your stack combinations are luscious, colorful and textured works of art!
    It’s not by accident. Your artfulness is on display with your table settings and arrangements too. You’ve got it goin’ on girl! :love:

    Thank you!! Yes this is a CvB Norah. I asked for fierce prongs and I love the color contrast. The antique snake is 18k gold and I love the color.

    You really have no idea how much this means to me! Thank you!! My passion in all things is arrangement. Jewelry is a close second but my first love will always be art, antiques, and interiors. I have an IG page if you are interested. Warning though - there is no jewelry and you will either like the style or not. It is definitely layered, curated, and collected with strong English country influences. I am what some would call a maximalist! IG augustrivermoon

    I could just feel that we had a lot in common @Mamabean! Collecting and putting it together is my outlet! We are about to buy a lakeside lot and build a vacation home! It is going to take a while but I am excited to do it!!!
