Thank you! I can’t wait for it to arrive on Monday!Omg this is stunning! Somehow it's low-key yet elaborate??!
I have been craving more variety in my collection and was so excited to find Holly’s unique designs. Thank you!Wow. It's so unusual. I love it.
This is stunning. I love the idea of continuing the colour with the enamel I have never seen this before. GorgeousI recently sent a lavender spinel to Holly at Holly Hague Design to be set in one of her designs, her peacock design using purple ombre enamel. I just received word that it’s finished and can’t wait to see it in person!
I hear you I am a huge spinel convert. Love these I have seen some sellers offering ombre sets as well in small sizes I think about making bar pendant of them I will do that one day.I've been on a gem-buying frenzy this summer, and I ended up buying 2 pairs of emerald-cut neon Burmese spinels with very similar dimensions from the lovely @Desertrose.
The pair on the left is more of a hot pink, and the pair on the right are more slightly pinkish red.
I bought the red pair first, originally planning to make a bypass ring out of them. But then I bought the pink pair a few weeks later and kind of want to keep them all together... kind of like an ombre pink/red spinel set
Have been trying to think of how to set them and like the idea of an offset vertical stack with a diamond halo RHR or a horizontal bar-set ring or pendant.
I have so many other stones I still want to set, including a trio of Paraibas from desertrose, but I keep reaching for these when I look at my collection. Figured I should set it first so I can wear it outside
I LOVE those dainty studs and that emerald, ohlalaI'm having a three-stone ring made out of these emerald shaped emeralds. The ring will be in rose gold & I'm designing it as we speak. Each emerald is quite small but it will make a luscious bar of color all together once set!
The diamonds in the above photo were made into the sweetest bezel set asymmetrical studs
I also purchased the loveliest 5mm round emerald in the last week & plan to create a very antique/Victorian or even Georgian inspired ring with it and a halo of neon pink/red spinels in yellow gold
The emerald is IMPOSSIBLE to photograph but I was able capture just a peek of the color in this video. It has wonderful clarity and the color is just so saturated in person. It reminds me of a colored mirror.
The 2mm spinels I will use to halo my round Emmy
Antique Inspo for the emerald & spinel halo ring
I didn't search for pearl halos but for whatever reason they were all almost predominantly in each setting that I loved!
Love how your ring looks now. You did a right thing!Subtle difference, but a difference nonetheless and I am quite happy about it cuz the halo setting was an eBay steal. 18k gold preloved setting. I replaced the sapphire centre with one that is better saturated with less of a window. Size 4. Before and after pics. The before pics were from the vendor
Thanks! At various times... but just never got around to setting them. Some of the stones do look a lot nicer in person than in my pics so definitely want to set themHoly schmolls, where did you get those?!
Hahahah. You know me well! But seriously not Thanos level size to me since you know, man hands and all.Thanos blingggggggg
