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!!!
Exciting! Starting from scratch would be heaven! Too bad there isn’t a place to post photos! You could help me add things..I have the basics I like but I need vignette (sp) help..I go to Houzz but they don’t have the styles I like..I pretty much buy what I like and throw it together..:lol:

I feel like I’ve just sat down at your kitchen table and enjoyed a cuppa tea with you while perusing your ring box. :kiss2: What a beautiful collection! I love every single one of them.

Look through who I follow on IG. There are so many fabulous designers that have this style. James Farmer, Eric Cross, Robert Kime, Sister Parish, Charlotte Moss, Bunny William's, and the uber talented Mario Buatta. I have found far more ideas than I will ever have enough money to afford!!!!!

I’ll do that! I’m a HomeGoods addict as much as a bling addict...=)2

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 added you on IG! Minimalism is boring, I say more is more.

I really love all the different ways you stack your bands. Each one is so unique and perfect.

And I love you have so many YG pieces. That rich buttery gold is just so beautiful and striking.

Stacking goals, lol!!!

CEG! what a beautiful collection of rings, took my breath away... I requested to follow you on IG if you find a new request there :) I think most people who see jewelry sometimes as an expression of themselves and not just glitter and bling (which girl I do love tooo!) but these people love decorating and expression fwiw :) thank you for sharing!

@ceg,
Can I please come visit?! :roll2: Your home, your art, your stunning vignettes are magazine worthy. Your home reminds me of the fabulous genteel and refined decorating of a Charleston home. My favorite! LOVE!

Thank you sooo much!!! I do think you have me figured out. I love the stones, I love the settings, but together I believe some of the pieces rise to art. I enjoy putting pieces together in a way that is me almost as much as I enjoy the jewelry itself.

I just shamelessly scooped out your threads to find out what finger size you are, just in case you ever do a band purge. I’ve never been so sad to be a size 5 in my life. :cry2: :lol:

Your bands are all stunnning. I really love the DK flower bands and the EW Imogen. :kiss2:

This is a STUNNING collection. I have enjoyed your posts over the years. What is so perfect about it though is that you know yourself and collect what you like and will wear. That takes a level of maturity and thought that's amazing. :clap::clap::clap:

Questions:lol:
You say you are a size 6.5 is that your actual ring size or the size you need to buy to stack? I am stacking some size 6 and some 6.5 and plan to buy 6.5 from now on.

Do you have any "learner bands" that didn't quite work? What have you done with them?

Thanks @Stone Hunter! I actually wear a 6.5 in order to get a band over my knuckle. The base is probably closer to a 6. Stacking is perfect with this shape finger. I have several bands in a 7 as well for my right hand in summer. They are fine in a stack but I wouldn't wear them alone. I do have a few that I rarely wear and they are in the preloved section now. I admit I have a few too many and I am trying to pare down a bit. Just so I can get more, lol! :lol:

Also @Stone Hunter , 6 and 6.5 are floor sizes! I keep an eye on b&m stores that sell online to find deals on certain designer's bands. They put them on sale sometimes when they want to turn over inventory. I just got a Single Stone band yesterday that was half off retail!!!! :dance:

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.

How I wish I had your fingers, mine are very short but I dream of stacking!
I love your sapphire 5 stone in particular, but your whole collection makes me weak at the knees:love:
Your yellow gold looks so rich, makes we want to dip my toe in that buttery pool, thanks so much for sharing.

Oh my gosh, @Gussie (ceg), your bands are absolutely fabulous!! i am so enjoying this thread because i have a band obsession as well, although I do not have anywhere close to the wonderfully divine variety that you do! I have so much fun mixing and matching bands, as I can tell you do as well! Thank you so much for sharing your amazing collection with us! :love:
