I have a soft spot for Pads. Each one is it's own unique color and I love that. Your new ring is beautiful. It seems that Steven Kirsch has come through again with another impeccable piece, which is convincing me even more to use him for my wedding set reset. Enjoy your new ring. It's stunning!

Thank you, gemgirl! I understand what you mean about having a soft spot for padparadschas. I love that delicate mix of pink and orange. I hadn't even heard of this stone before joining PS and reading Traveling Gal's thread on her pad ring... and then I was hooked ;)) . It was my first colored gemstone purchase, and was supposed to be my last :lol: !

Steven's workmanship on this ring is flawless. I wish I could have gotten better close-up pics. You really can't go wrong if you ask him to do your wedding set reset.

I was wondering what your other new ring was! That is gorgeous!!! :love: :love: :love:

Yes, I've had it for about 3 weeks and finally sat down last night to organize my pictures!

Thank you very much, I'm really enjoying it!

Anything new with your blue sapphire search, ds?

I love all your projects, so I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures!!!

I have someone keeping their eyes open for blue sapphires for me. I just don't have good access where I live, so I need some help from those who have access to seeing stones! I'm willing to wait for the right one, so I am not sure how long it will take. Thanks for asking!

Congratulations, on both your babies and beautiful ring.
But, I would have guessed that B&N stands for Barnes and Noble! :wink2:
Really, I like the idea of the babies' initialls. For us it would be S & K, which can also stand for DH and me. (Ideas...PS is always giving me new ideas...!)

Thank you, KaeKae! (we have a bunny we call "KaeKae", btw :)) !)

Haha! Yes, B & N seem to stand for a few things... Barnes and Noble, Blue Nile, BabyNurse...but in this case it's for my boys "Ben and Noah". Cool that your children's initials are also yours and DH's.

Congratulations on your baby's birth. What a wonderful gift to celebrate the occasion. Lovely ring, very well made, and I love halos to show off the delicate color of padparadschas. Enjoy!

Thank you, TL :wavey: !

This little baby has actually recently turned 3! I received 2 stones as "push presents" when he was a little over 1-- a round blue sapphire and an oval padpardascha. The blue I had set last summer and then this pad about 3 weeks ago.

It really is beautifully made and I chose a halo setting to "beef up" the stone a bit. I'm very pleased :)) .

I'm glad you have connections with people who can actually look at blue sapphires for you. I live in a very beautiful area but it's in the middle of nowhere so I rely a lot on the internet. My first two gemstone purchases were gifts from my husband to celebrate the birth of our second son. One was a round blue sapphire which I had set last summer and the other was this pad sapphire (steven Kirsch)that I just posted. My search for those stones brought me to PS and then to Richard Wise. They're such tough stones to find and I left the search up to him. Ultimately I was delighted, but if you know a person or two who can keep an eye out for you, eventually you're bound to find what your looking for. They're such spectacular gems-- well worth the wait :))

Thank you, MTG!

I really love the star sapphire in your avatar. I, like a lot of people, had my eye on that stone for quite a while before you wisely picked it up!

It's beautiful, Babynurse!

Off topic, but I think we actually live pretty close to each other. I think you've posted your general area once and it stuck with me for some reason. It's probably because there aren't too many of us from these parts. :bigsmile:

Hi Zoe :wavey:! Thank you for the compliment!

Yes, I think when I posted my JKT ring last year I mentioned that I was in NH-- isn't it a treat that summer has finally arrived :sun: ?

I know, I'm so excited. I can't wait to spend some quality time at the pool this summer. If you're ever interested in getting together, let me know. Sometimes there are GTGs with the PSers who are in the Boston area, and those are fun.
