A picture of the settings alone - they were made by Etsy vendor Creative Goldsmith, who was awesome to work with. The settings are sterling silver, size 3.5, with a 1.5 mm shank. She made the settings and shipped them to me so I could get them set locally.

Oh and they''re on my left finger because I''m apparently too clumsy to take macro pics with my non-dominant hand

How cool are those! Perfect settings for those stones! I''ll have to check that vendor out, since I have several nice stones that are going begging for settings.

On my finger - the stones are actually just a little big for my finger when I wear them all together, but oh well - more bling

Thanks Harriet! Not quite earned yet - need to get through this income tax exam tomorrow, and then I''ll feel like I really earned my break

Gorgeous rings!!! How awesome she put your gemstones in the rings!
Thanks! I''ve been bugging a bunch of Etsy vendors lately; I''m really glad I went with Erin (CreativeGoldsmith). She was really great to work with and I love how the rings turned out!

Thanks Musey dear! It''s really bright - I totally was planning on going with something light blue as the third color, but then this tourmaline showed up and it just all clicked
