I have two tourmalines cut by Barry B that I purchased at different times and am thinking they would look nice together, set in a classic bypass style ring with the cushion cut stones kite set instead of the traditional square set. I haven‘t been able to find examples of a ring with the two stones set like this and am not sure how it will translate in real life.
What do you all think??

I just gotta tell you, these jump out at me as dangly December earrings, one red and one green.

I love this idea! I’m going to take then out and see how they would look as mis-matched dangles later today. They’re not as straight red and green as they look in my pictures, more of a medium-dark reddish pink and blueish green, but definitely a look that would work for Christmas, as well as the fall and winter seasons.

My larger jelly opal arrived today, and it is gorgeous to my untrained eyes, with lots of blue and pink flashes!

9.20ct, 18.1 x 13.0 x 8.0mm.

A couple of pics using my phone, it is much nicer IRL!

Not bad for under 160 USD including postage!

Very pretty! Who is the vendor if you don’t mind sharing?

I've just had this set in a diamond halo in platinum. Should arrive tomorrow.

No preview vendor shots, huh? :confused2:
Nope - got nothin'. If anything comes in this evening, I'll post them here. I don't really ask for them, to be honest; I'd rather just get the piece than have to wait for the pro shots.

Dunno how she got it done so fast (a little more than 2 weeks), but I received my mint garnet Camellia ring from Yvonne today! I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out :) The center stone is a 4.6mm garnet, with lavender sapphires, Burmese pink spinels and demantoids set in 14k rose gold.

@Pennyc I don't have any input but that is going to look incredible. I'm coming around to pinks and reds myself

I wasn't super sure about earrings and necklaces (I have a daily driver that I never take off) but I have to say i came around and now have a growing earring collection. That and I needed another band like a hole in the head, I mean what else do you do with little stones :).

@2Neezers I loooove those tourmalines, I am partial to angular cuts and that cut is gorgeous and brings out the color brilliantly. I also love the idea of kite setting. I think it would look ahhhmazing. This isn't anywhere close to your shape but I was going for fluid for my tourm toi e moi.

I’m in the process of turning my anniversary diamond (solitaire) into a three-stone ring... High Performance Diamonds will source a sapphire to go in the empty platinum solitaire setting. I scored this super fun ‘50’s ring wrap last year on Ruby Lane, and I think a sapphire will look gorgeous in the middle of this ring wrap! It’s baguettes and single cut diamonds.

Last year I had my local shop set a Finewater Gems garnet in a Stuller solstice solitaire, so you can get an idea of how a gemstone looks in the wrap. I’m excited!

stunning!!! I’m quite partial to this coloring in spinel ;-) the work looks impeccable.
Thank you, @Polished1911 :wavey: It really is a beautiful stone and it's an IF clarity. So it has a watery cleanliness which is just lovely. I hope I can take some photos that capture the sparkle of the diamonds; they're a lovely quality and should perform beautifully.

I love that watery, almost metallic qualities in spinel. I’m destined to have a few over time :D your ring is just gorgeous and I can’t wait to see it on your hand!

Lovely, and some size! How are you going to set it? I have a notion for a bangle set with a large opal but I'm sure how the securing of the stone actually works/happens.

As the stone is not an expensive one, I do not wish to spend too much on the setting, and shall set it in a metal only halo with a plain comfort band in 14K WG.

That garnet is AMAZING - I want one just like it now! What kind of garnet is it? It is such a rich, reddish, purple color. Sooooo luscious

All I know is that it was 2.02 carat “hearts and arrows” rhodolite Garnet from Finewater gems. It’s gorgeous in certain lighting, but you know how garnets can be sort of finicky! I’m actually wearing it tonight as I enjoy a strawberry margarita!

@Pennyc- so funny! It was only on my radar for acquisition due to my daughter being a January baby! I do love this ring in certain lighting conditions. But it’s moody.:???:

So I have trouble resisting blue zircon anything and I've been wanting one for a pendant. Considering this pin with an 11 x 9 oval zircon as a conversion project. It is already set in a beautiful setting and I think would be simple to convert. Anyone with experience in this dept please chime in! 20200902_221224.jpg
