I’m so gosh darn excited! These are the aqua pair I bought from Marc at Africagems.

long story short, I had to get them set locally with the stuller 4 prong basket with the guardian type backs.

they are AMAZING in my Brian Gavin cushion shape jackets.

Excuse my nails. I am 5 weeks post double knee replacement surgery and I’m just getting lucid enough to want to care about how I look—
But not on all days. So these are convalescent nails.

Wow! Those aquamarines are such a deliciously saturated tropical color they could be the finest blue zircons! They are elegant on their own but blingalicious in those gorgeous jackets! I hope these brighten your convalescence and you are back to feeling yourself soon!

They’re so pretty! How do they match with your beautiful ring?

Pretty close match. I’ll take a pic later.

thanks everyone. I want to do individual replies, but I just woke up (had a bad night). So I’m slow going this morning.

they definitely added a bright spot in my recovery! So excited!!

Ok. Sorry for the pause. I’ve had bad nights and have been depressed a tad and then I decided to collect money for a group purchase of lotto tickets lol. So I’ve wanted to save my replies for when I had the time to sit down and really be here in this thread and read everything.

Thank you, everyone. I’m absolutely bowled over at how this set is coming out.

I have a nearly 11 carat oval for a pendant that is in CAD stage. It is a bit lighter than the ring and earrings, but it has a different personality altogether and is flashy so I think it’s cool and brings a nice balance and little something extra to the group.

here are a bunch of pics in different lighting of the studs in the BG jackets with the 8 carat ring BG made for me.

@Cerulean thank you. They are glorious and sort of glowy (maybe neon idk) that I wasn’t expecting and don’t know how to explain. They are gemmy. Thanks for the well wishes. As I say, it’s 5 steps forward and 2 back and I’m on the 2 back right now.

@LLJsmom you know, it’s been sort of unintended to be here. I mean, other than the fact that blue is my favorite color and so I like all things blue. The ring stone is from Gary at finewater gems and it was on sale for a nice price and I was like... 8 carats? This could be interesting. And so I began.... lol. Now I want a bracelet.

@OdetteOdile thank you so much. They are so gorgeous in real life... you know when you see a piece and your heart starts singing? That is how I felt when I saw the studs set.

@Lisa Loves Shiny thank you. I think this is medium blue and they are African, not Brazilian. The jackets have been one of my best purchases because they are so versatile. Now I have akoya pearls, diamonds, blue sapphire and now aquamarines for them. I keep an eye out for round matched pairs around 5.7-5.9 mm

@Polyhex you have a great eye for color, so I am tickled that they do something for you. Thank you for the well wishes. Yes, they have absolutely brightened my day. I sit here in pajamas with my legs hooked to ice machines and I wear them lol.

@rcjtraveler, thank you so much. The jackets really amp them up.

@lissyflo haha definitely a pick me up. And working on the pendant CAD has been a nice distraction also.

@missy smile.. love it. Aqualicious. I want to jump in and swim in them lol

@MamaBee enjoy the photos! Lol

@RunningwithScissors thank you for the nice thoughts on my recovery.

@bling_dream19 thank You! They really are so pretty in the jackets, and they hold their color.

They’re here!!!!!!! :cool2: :appl:

This photo. OMG. This set is fit for royalty. I love the earrings in the jackets - totally elevates them. And what a perfect size fit!!

The colour on these aquas is so similar - they really look like they were bought as a matched trio. They’re the colour of the water over the coral reefs in Brisbane on a sunny day. I can’t wait to see them one day - you wear baby blues beautifully :love:
