    Oh Man! Beautiful.

    Specs please.

    Do you have jewelry plans or do you like them loose and free?

    I love your collection! I don't have any fancy diamonds yet but I do have a natural light yellow (Y-Z) diamond that I love. I'll post pics if you think that's good enough!

    I'm pretty sure Ace isn't excluding the non "fancy" colors, I think he just means colored diamonds in general...with that said, I'll be posting mine in a few minutes!

    Ok so None of what I have is certified but I bought them all from trusted vendors and I trust their color grading skills, all of the stones were purchased loose and I designed the pieces...

    The ring was my first colored stone design, They were sold as a set, the center stone Greenish Grayish Yellow (something like that) and they two sides Pinkish Brown (something like that). I really wanted to maximize the coverage and make an East West band with them so I sent Whiteflash my drawing and they brought it to life! I had them add two white asschers at the ends to make it a five stone look. I love the ring but I don't love the center stone in this setting, I think I'm going to have it replaced with a white emerald cut so I'll have a white pink white pink white going on and then use the colored center in something more flattering for the color, I have yet to figure that out!

    Next is a piece that I feel I got completely right! In purchased all of the components on eBay, the South Sea pearl, the white pear diamonds, and the light brown round diamonds. This is a favorite of mine! The setting was done by Sally of Hearts of Water Jewels.

    Oh wow, that ring is so unique and very pretty! I like the grayish greenish yellow stone a lot. I have a thing for gray(is) diamonds in particular. Though I understand why you might want to reset in something that will make it shine.

    I'll post mine in a minute.

    Asscher halo lover, that yellow/pink ring is really special.
    The colors look good together; and those pearl earrings are cool too.

    cigwli, I also love your yellow radiant.
    It's a very vibrant stone; I'll bet you love wearing it at places with good spotlighting.
