This is nothing compared to previous posts, but here is a 22K ring with a very clean, peach pink tourmaline. Opinion is the ring originated in India, and it's amazing how they managed to set all those diamonds without a single prong. It's very comfortable to wear and one of DW's favorites.

One of the two my mother-in-law gave me for the wedding. As you can see, I don’t wear these because they clash with my cool colored skin.

Hi strawrose, your bracelet is gorgeous! DW was of the opinion that yellow gold got lost against her skin until she saw this 18K woven gold bracelet in a Santa Barbara pawn shop. There's no doubt that higher karat yellow gold has a much richer yellow color and glows beautifully. She wears it a lot!
Forgive me if this bracelet isn't "ethnic" but we think it was made in Italy, so perhaps "ethnic Italian" is OK.

I'm sorry @strawrose but I don't think that clashes at all with your skin - I think it looks beautiful. If anything, it pops against your skin tone. I'd wear those babies all the time.

Thanks. Lol... no really, I’m like Snow White, except not as pretty. Definitely cool-colored, and the picture doesn’t show it.

@strawrose you are lucky to have pale skin, the yellow gold will stand out even more! It doesn't clash at all, for hundreds of years there was only yellow gold available, and the white skinned ladies of Europe had no problems at all wearing it.
DW has brown skin and always preferred white gold because she thought yellow gold blended in with her skin and got lost. You should definitely wear your bracelet, and think of all the brownie points you'll win with your MIL.

Funny, I find that darker skin people look better with color. I’m so envious.

I love this bracelet! I saw it in another thread a few years ago then lost track of it. Last year I remembered and hunted down the same picture. Now, here it is again, with new pictures. I have so many loose stones and this is a great way to showcase them. Would you mind if I used it for inspiration?

Thank you. And please do whatever makes you happy. I can’t take credit for this design. I bough this as a finished piece. Hope yours turns out well.
