It’s raining, so this is poor lighting and I didn’t clean them all before the photo (bad bad diamond and gem mama).....

I also have an emerald that needs to be set, but its probably going to be a good amount, so it’s in the safe now. It will be my next project, so I will have to save up for it— likely 2021 project. I don’t like having gems sitting in the safe un set. I’m going to let Inken (who sourced the stone) set it.

I also got obsessed with Rubys in the last few weeks, so I did an “oops, I hit buy” and then “oops I picked out a setting” on a 4.8mm vivid open red ruby from africa gems that is getting set in a Stuller crown setting. I’ll have that in about 2 weeks I guess.

Here is an incomplete family photo. I didn’t include my bands.

That spinel is so pretty. I remember it on LT and how it was listed as a sapphire as well. It has a pretty, feminine color.

I still like your heart ring and middle finger top ring very much!
Oh thank you so much, I know how funny the story about the spinel is, can't make this stuff up sometimes!

@whitewave Such beautiful colours in your collection! That blue sapphire still has my heart though. What a stunner!

@YadaYadaYada Love that you buy, assess, then sell what you don't want in order to buy new things that you do want. I'm really enjoying watching your collection evolve.

@mrs-b my heart skips a beat at your collection. I just love it all.

@YadaYadaYada that spinel! Those bands! I was late to the party, had other Bill's to pay, on the OEC and I know you held it back but if it is ever in need of adoption again :).

@whitewave what a collection. The ring on your pinky is such happiness to look at.

Pics don’t do it justice. The sapphire looked like a rich royal blue in the car last week with the Saharan dust...

Thank you.

@CSpan that is my little heart to remind me to love myself.

Thanks @Alex T, to be honest it's more necessity, if I want something then I need to sell something to finance the new jewel because there is no magical pot or money tree :)

@CSpan, I will definitely let you know if I decide to part with it!

@whitewave, there it is that beautiful three stone, it is so pretty, I hope you wear it often and congrats on your new CBI upgrade too, a little late to the party on that one, not sure how I missed it!

I need to find the thread on that opal ring!!!
Thanks for the kind words about my ring. That thread has not great pics because I didn't have an iPhone at the time but I did add photos later on near the end of that thread. Those photos are in other threads here too though. You have probably seen enough photos of my opal lol but here is the thread you wanted to see. Again not great pics but here it is.



And a photo I didn't share in that thread but is elsewhere on PS. With my Leibish pink diamond band.

Everyone's rings are so gorgeous! I usually refrain from posting in threads like these because when I do group shots I manage to make every one of my rings look like crud. Ok, I tried but really they look so much better than these pics.

Thanks Horsegirl76! I pick what I'm going to wear based on the color of the clothing I'm wearing, lol. I have my favorites though, so a lot doesn't get worn as much.

Hi @OboeGal :wavey:

No - that's a new one - an OEC, .7ct, 5.7mm, F color, and SI2 clarity. A very sweet little stone. It started out at .79ct, but I had it tidied up a little. I actually think it's above .7ct, but I'm rounding down on the side of caution. Either side are 2 baby AVR's - 9 points and 10 points, I believe, and the setting is in platinum.

I love this ring, but am thinking I might redo it with a larger center. It's just so nice, it deserves to be more...central? Something. Just to have a little more presence. I love gypsy rings. The first ring I ever owned was my father's rose gold gypsy ring, and I loved it with a passion! Been recreating it ever since. :))
Oooo, thank you for the details! I absolutely love it - I think the proportions are perfect, and just what I had in mind for a future three-stone, so now I know what numbers to go with.

@Catmom I don't think they could ever look like crud! Beautiful rings! Is that a blue sapphire on your ring finger? It's sizeable and a lovely color!

Aww thank you elizat but I'm terrible at taking group shots. Yes that is a blue sapphire and is just shy of 5 carats.

I agree with @Catmom that it is impossible to make a whole hand look nice. They look a mess. I am missing one ring that is a project from a while back I recently got, a pinkish- orange pad like spinel with cadi cut diamonds.

This is the updated photo, minus that.

Plus, with so many some look larger or smaller than they are. Like the sapphire below is a good size and very apparent on the hand, but looks small in the photo of everything.
