Mexican fire opal with play of colour, set in onyx panel and 18K yellow gold. In direct sun, flashlight and shade:

Typically for an opal, the colours show best in directional contrasty light. But the softer floating colour clouds seen in the shade are also fascinating.

sorry i somehow missed this
but im loving it

My new yellow-orange zircon, in 18K yellow gold. I love how bright it is:
Zircon.jpg

@DejaWiz, note the slightly beveled half-bezel (which would be octagonal, like your concept, if it were a full bezel). This is what I was suggesting for your ring. See how, with the lighting in the picture, there is a bright reflection at centre and top left, but not from the other sides. If the bezel were dead flat, there would be a bright reflection all around. I now always try to avoid this. Just my 2 cents.

Here is a comparison with other yellow-orange stones (parti sapphire, chrysoberyl / zircon, zircon, orange sapphire, yellow beryl):
YellowComp.jpg

It's hard to show them all at their best in one pic. (Note that some of the highlights are burnt out.) But you can see that the new zircon easily outshines the older round one. The new zircon, the orange sapphire and the yellow beryl seem to have the best balance of brightness and saturation. The parti sapphire and the chrysoberyl are bright, but not so saturated.

Wow, @Starstruck8 manages to be both dazzling and juicy. What a great choice! I like the geometric setting too.

I’m a lady but sometimes like jewelry with masculine styling. This thread does not get enough attention so may as well post this angular ring with wide band. Super comfortable. Size 6.5 but it would easily look good in size 10 or 11 because of the shank. David Klass, gents.

Thank you, @Daisys and Diamonds. Yes, it's very cool.

I sometimes think that the Men's Bling thread doesn't get as much traffic as it should. So I try to keep it active, because it's a great resource for design inspiration.

you do a good job Starbuck* keeping us ticking over
im always keen to see what our PS gents are wearing and its cool when a new man joins and we get to see new things
almost every ring posted i would wear

* Battlestar Galactica (1978 fan) so always think of you as Lieutenant Starbuck;)2

I dont wear rings often but I have started to wear them more often. I got this cheaper one to test the waters and its growing on me thinking about getting something way nicer. I wear stone rings more often though DSCN6366.jpg

My new ring. Mali garnet, tsavorites, 18K yellow gold. The concept is a schematic snake.

Here is it with my other schematic snake ring:

It's not so much that I like snake rings (though I do), but that trillions are hard to set creatively.

I love it! And I love how it echoes the first one but is also completely original! I know this was not the plan but they look good together -- although it's a good bit of "real estate."

Yep, it's a three-headed, one-tailed snake! It wasn't intentional, but wearing them together shows the different colours very well - the greener yellow of the Mali garnet vs the yellower yellow of the kite sapphire. Unfortunately, they take up a bit too much finger length for comfort.

What a glorious collection of yellows! How I would love to see your jewels in person--I bet the way they handle light is AMAZING!

Here are mine. The one on index finger is stainless steel with 10 mined diamond 1 point stones. IMG_4613.jpeg . The other is silver with 11 - 3 point lab diamonds IMG_4616.jpeg IMG_4617.jpeg

Love the look with the bracelets! Really masculine setup with just enough bling! What are the bracelets made of? Are they hematite?

Here’s a new one I just made for my left index finger. I have had this quirky but very charming Flawless, No-Oil Muzo emerald for several years, but couldn’t quite settle on how to make it into a gents ring. Finally got it! 00445375-4293-4752-BCC2-A0BC5E89AB6D.jpeg

That's great! It's a ring I'd like to have designed, the perfect setting for the odd-shaped stone. And it's such a beautiful stone, well-coloured and perfectly clean.

The brushed finish works very well. It darkens the tone of the metal to match that of the emerald. The roughness of the brushing suits the asymmetric design.

What a lovely perspective! Thank you for chiming in :kiss2:
