Really really didn’t need another project but have got all overexcited about a pad sapphire.

I’m going insane with impatience waiting for my emerald cab bracelet to be finished and cannot be without something cooking.

How about this little pad surrounded by pink diamond melee and then a white diamond halo.

That is beautiful I can why you couldn't pass! Is it from the ceylonsapphire folks?

My first project with DanielM is underway! I just mailed off these zircons, to be made into this ring:

6.60 x 4.75 mm blue zircon + 2mm white zircons, in argentium with yellow gold bezels for the lil guys
(Extra melee because I don't have a loupe and can't trust my own eyes re: "a match" lol)

I think it'll be a lovely little bit of springtime sparkle :D

That should be a very pretty ring! He does great bezel work, so I'm sure you will be happy :)

I have a 6 mm round blue zircon I'm thinking of having Dan set with a pair of 4x3 tsavorite garnets on either side in an E-W orientation. I was also considering bezels but haven't decided between 14K RG or WG

Planning a CRD tourbillon ring with a grey spinel and benitoite melee in white metal.

Trying to decide between having the darker or the lighter stones closer to the center!

I pick A. It feels more natural, if that makes sense.

New sparking beauties just arrived. They are beautiful - I truly hadn’t expected them to be so wonderful :). 193F832E-F96D-438E-AB19-707E8941A35E.jpeg 50EB56A2-E92C-4FF2-89E6-3EEF5FD5D420.jpeg

The spinel ring is a beauty I bought from another PSr and have been waiting to reset it. The melee are tiny red/pink spinels and larger orange sapphires. The photos don’t do them justice. They are just beautiful.

My DH's wedding band will be getting a facelift!

It currently has these tiny channel set sapphires that are so dark you can barely tell they're blue.

We finally went to a local jeweler who is in the process of sourcing some different colored melee for us. They said they could widen the channel (?) a bit and create an opening underneath to allow for bigger stones and to let more light in. Should be hearing back from the jeweler soon. Can't wait to see what they have to offer!

Phew, took almost a month but we finally got DH's wedding band back. Sorry for the crappy nighttime indoor pics. I'm just so happy that you can still tell they're blue stones despite the poor lighting!

Finally got some sun here and was able to take some decent pics of DH's band after its latest spa treatment.

I’ve got one on it’s way

This looks to be interesting! Pad like color, bezel set halo, and I dig the underside reminiscent of a spider web and the three-wire band design! Lots of nifty little details! When will the reveal be?

Adding color to my e-ring set has been something I have wanted to do for a couple of years now and it’s finally done!
Searching for a well cut pair of 4mm stones was challenging! I‘m so thankful Gene was able to make this possible with a bright pair of green grossular garnets.
DK swapped out the side diamonds seen in the first photo for the green garnets and added milgrain surrounding the pave and its looks like a completely different set now. I’m loving the contrast and pop of color and can’t wait to see it in person.
I just have a blurry screenshot of the finished piece from the video DK sent me for now.

That looks so beautiful! :love::love::love: Congrats!

Your ring reminds me of the first time I saw The Return of the King, when Liv Tyler wore that velvety soft green, and it was my first time seeing the pretty shade of green. I believe it symbolizes renewal and growth, which are definitely things I want to have in my own marriage.

Thank you!! I haven’t seen that movie, but I just looked it up and saw a picture of her beautiful dress. So pretty! Renewal and growth are definitely things to strive for in marriage. We’ve been married for 20+ years now and it’s nice to be reminded to keep working towards that.
Where I live in the northern US, we loose our greenery from mid-October to May, so the spring green color of the garnets will be especially nice to see on my hand during those months :))

Oh my goodness, I absolutely LOVE this! Your wedding set looks so gorgeous now (not that it didn’t before...you know what I mea). That pop of color just makes the whole thing stand out. :kiss2:

Aww, Thanks! I’m pretty sure that the majority of people would prefer all diamonds, but I am loving the updated version with the green side stones! It arrive late yesterday and I can’t stop looking at it :bigsmile:
