    Interesting thread and beautiful jewellery, everyone! My bling staples are my engagement ring and rose gold wedding band, or I'll just wear my wedding band only. Recently, I've began swapping out the engagement ring for my three-stone fancy coloured halo diamond ring.

    Great thread! I don’t have the collections many PSers do but in the past few years, my husband has been generous with some cool pieces for right and left hand. I’ve been working a lot and having pretty things to look at while I type has helped cheer me up. :)

    My usual are these two - I really like low profile and love sapphires.

    Thank you @Alex T I actually prefer mine as the setting is less heavy and it’s such an easy ring to wear IYKWIM

    Honestly- I reach for this diamond with or without diamond bands. I am planning on re-setting it but I still love it.

    My goal was a constant companion so I wear my asscher 24/7 but switch out the band almost daily. If the solitaire didn't spin I would wear it by itself!

    My daily wear is LH wedding set, RH a thin vintage WG single cut band, sometimes with my mum’s opal ring or a palladium/gold band that was hers too. I put the basic three rings on first thing and it comes off last thing at night. I also always wear a WG bezelled 6.5mm OEC moissy pendant on a super fine YG chain every day and 6mm Schubach OEC studs.
    No watch, no bracelets as they drive me nuts when typing.

    Thank you! My grandpa had a similar Longines watch so I love that it reminds me of him.

    I wear my wedding set everyday on my left hand -- my 1.2 oval with .26 and .09 sides along with a hand-engraved band. On my right hand, I wear a sapphire and baguette band that I received after my first daughter was born, 27 years ago. I usually wear earrings, and I have recently pared those down. I gifted a lot to my daughters, including a small pair of ruby studs and some pearl studs, lots of yellow gold, and lots of fashion pairs. I basically wear one of these three: silver Celtic knots that were a gift from my daughter after she visited Ireland; my .25 bezeled diamond studs; or my semi-hoops which have .09 stones. If I wear a pendant, it is one of these two. IMG_5248.jpg IMG_5247.jpg

    @foxinsox Your wedding set is one of my favourites on PS. I love everything about it :love: I cannot tire of seeing pictures of these two rings - they are simply dreamy looking antiques.

    Oh!:kiss2: Thank you @Alex T. That’s so kind of you to say so - no one in real life has ever commented on them apart from my MIL who loves my ering! I spent 6 months looking for the ering and another 8 months looking for the right band so it’s nice to know my persistence paid off.
    We’re out at lunch and the light is making it look really pretty

    @foxinsox I agree with LLJ, completely charming. They have such an old world feel about them & look like they have stories to tell! Is your wedding ring antique too? I love everything, the mixed metals, different styles & of course, that diamond is divine :love:

    Thank you! :kiss2: I always wonder what stories they could tell and when they were made. And I think of the first woman to wear either them and did she look at them daily and smile too? I don’t know what era the wedding band is - I thought Deco but a jeweller I spoke to thought much more recent and made in Indonesia(?) which doesn’t make sense to me given the very crisp orange blossom pattern. The gold is YG but has that older YG rosy patina that I adore. I’m a super fan of mixed metals - my mum had a YG/palladium engraved band so that’s always been my idea of a wedding band even tho I see gorgeous plain bands and love them. I’m getting a toi et moi ring made and even that’s not all one colour :roll2:

    @foxinsox That wedding ring looks definitely orange blossom to me - I don't think it's Indonesian either. I expect it's one of those rare finds that's incredibly old but didn't see much wear, so the pattern is crisp.

    +1 gorgeous set @foxinsox I think most people really don't pay attention to jewelry and those who do may not feel comfortable commenting on it. It seems to me it's usually only close female relatives or friends who feel ok saying something. =)
