Yup--the color is stable. I love the unplated gold, because it''s permanent. I also love the hint of warmth!

I took these pics with a little Canon powershot.


Thanks hon!!

*sigh* I so adore this ring! Even my husband, who could not care less about rings, did a double take when I showed him JM''s website!

Interesting to know about the white gold too-I just read that recently on here about it being rhodium plated! I knew sterling silver is sometimes plated but didn''t know they did that to white gold too! Does yellow gold get plated then too or no?

Thanks packrat!

wg is commonly rhodium plated. I don't like it because it's not permanent, and because I like the warmth and texture of non plated. Rhodium plated gold also tends to have a chrome like finish--some like this look, but I prefer the nonplated.

Yellow gold is not plated, because, it needs to stay...yellow!

I adore it with the band! Did Ann McKay make the band? I love it, and yes you have enabled me.


I love moonstone--such an interesting gem. Yours is a beauty. Please post more pics if you feel like it. I''d love to see the profile. I love their designs--so simple and modern yet antique at the same time. Wonderful!

Thanks-- the band is from Etsy-- just very lightly textured and super thin!
I''ll try to get pics of the profile a little later
I totally agree about their designs-- simple and so timeless, and I mean TIMELESS.. I could imagine them being in style hundreds/thousands of years ago (and hundreds of years to come!)
(can''t wait to see your''s one day .. heh heh
