    In April last year I had 3 stacking rings made as a tribute to my family who supported me during breastcancer treatments.

    While I loved the outcome ( https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/tribute-to-three.240007/ ), I seldom wore the three rings together as my fingers are not long enough to make it work. Sooo... I decided to do a reset as I really wanted to wear the three rings together.

    Today I collected the rings and I am thrilled with the result!

    This is the teaser photo my jeweller sent me this afternoon

    Dismantling my former set...
    I did love the set and it was beautifully made so this hurt a bit. But besides being too wide, the look was a bit ‘eighties’ on me in a not so good way

    After this the stones had to be set

    The new set is ready!!! I love this more informal and airy look. It’s more ‘me’. I am wearing the set here with two plain stacking bands: one by the jeweller who remade my set (we had a bit of gold left) and the other by Alistair Kelsey

    Taken outside, early in the evening. In the second pic the colour of the blue sapphire shows different somehow

    First off, what beautiful gems and I love the sneak peek of your new rings! It is cool to get progress pics, and what a lovely sentiment for them. I'm so sorry to read that you had such health issues and hope your worries are behind you. Thanks for sharing!

    Comparing new and old:
    Still love the old set, but not so much on my finger

    The diamond and yellow/orange sapphire rings each have two star -set diamonds in the cup. The sapphire ring has two blue sapphires in the cup

    Thank you for your kinds words! This set is very special to me.

    And yes, I feel much better now. No more threatments in hospital, though I still get hormone therapy.

    I loved receiving the progress pics from my jeweller. It softened the waiting

    Thank you for your kind words! I enjoy wearing these, especially since I can wear the 3 rings - symbolizing the three men in my family - at the same time.

    Oww thank you @MrsKMB for your kind Words. And I do love in progress pics as well. I wish all jewelers would do that.
    Um.. by the way: am I totally crazy to think you have a new avatar? Is that a new Paraiba flower ring by Yvonne?

    @mpc thanks for your positive vibes. It’s great to have a lot more energy and building my strength.
    And yes I love wearing jewelry with a special meaning

    Thank you @leslie1956 !!! I am super grateful for having received such great treatments despite the side effects. And super happy to be in a better position now. And hoping that it stays this way.

    Thanks @ZestfullyBling : it’s great to be able to wear the rings at the same time. Thank you for your good wishes

    I love your new set and wish you will enjoy them for a long time to come. The detail of the diamonds set in the cup really impressed me. Your jeweller did a great job!

    Love the way the stones and the shapes naturally bounce off each other; very reflecting of relationships.
