Wow so vibrant!! This has me dreaming of purple garnet and yellow diamond emerald cuts in a moi et toi galore.
I've been to NY a couple of decades ago, but nowhere else. Would love to visit a number of places in US - such a big country with so many interesting places!
UK is great if you like historic things and in London, many or most large museums are free:
Explore London's free museums and galleries, from the British Museum and Natural History Museum’s fascinating collections to free exhibitions in London.www.visitlondon.com
Including the V&A with its jewellery collection:
The V&A jewellery collection is one of the most comprehensive in the world. Discover the stories behind the collection of over 3000 jewels.www.vam.ac.uk
Then there's the jewellery district and the Grays antique gallery!
Oh yes, I love anything having to do with antiquity! Thank you so much for the article on London museums and galleries. I'd also love to visit the castles! That's something we definitely do not have here... mansions - maybe, castles - nope.
Sorry about that! Antony is with The Rare Gemstone Company. Here is their site. They are one of my very favorite vendors, but mostly carry African gems, as they operate at the source (based in Kenya). They can pretty much find you anything, and have more stock than what is listed.
The Rare Gemstone Company Est 1974, is a world-renowned cutter and seller of fine loose gemstones, gemstone rings, pendants, earrings, and designer jewelry - Shop online for quality natural gemstones and unique gemstone jewelry.www.theraregemstonecompany.com
Clusters are probably my favorite ring design as well! I try to mix it up a little, but my instinct is always to go with a cluster/chunky halo!!
Wow, this is such a gorgeous purple garnet and the trilogy ring design really compliments it! Looks absolutely stunning on your finger
Purple garnets are my favorite and yours is an absolute stunner!!
I love your ring! It looks gorgeous on your hand!
I absolutely love your purple Garnet and your new ring! A beautiful, beautiful piece of jewelry! I am so happy to have found this website There will never be enough time to learn it all or see it all. Eye candy overload!
We have such an encouraging, supportive community here... I love it! Thank you!!
Well hello there, my friend! I'm thrilled you like it!! So, actually, it's the opposite. I think, for the foreseeable future, I'm done purchasing main/focal stones. I just bought my first home (all by myself, like the song, lol, and with cash), so you know how that goes. I thought it was a good time to start setting and enjoying what I have, which is just as much fun, but kinder to my pocketbook. Honestly, if I could, I'd have Inken set every single one. But she has an understandable policy about not working with melee purchased elsewhere (for quality control and liability purposes). So I'm working with David Klass for the first time on my next piece. He definitely has a very different process, but so far, so good! How have you been? I hope you're enjoying your summer!!
You have excellent taste! I love this ring. How does the cost compare between DK and Inken? I have only worked with DK and find him to be reasonable. Thanks.
