I am thinking about buying these huggie diamond earrings from Yvonne. Do you have them and use them for colored stone dangles? How well are they holding up? I'm concerned about the closure being secure. Thanks!

Ah maybe @leslie1956 has an opinion? I went back through the thread and see that she has a pair of hoops she uses for colored stone dangles.

While I was browsing Yvonne's shop I ordered a stacking ring. I'll post photos once that arrives. I realized I've never posted my first purchase from Yvonne. It's a Demantoid half eternity ring in yellow gold. Here I've stacked it with an Umblite garnet ring.

I'd love to know about how the Huggies look. I never know how they would look on my lobes

Anyone get anything from her Thanksgiving sale?

As a matter of fact, I have three pairs of Yvonne's diamond huggies:) I've had no problems losing them, just be sure that you hear the "click" when you close them. My RG pair are the tiny ones and the WG and rhodium plated ones are the bigger size.

Be sure to specify the size of your hoops when you order danglies, I had to send a pair of danglies back for a larger ring because she used the one that works with the tiny hoops and it wouldn't fit over the larger WG hoops.

Speaking of those danglies, I will getting them in the mail very soon from Yvonne, will post pictures when they arrive :)

Thanks for responding!! I’ve been concerned about keeping my earring charms secure. Your input really helps :bigsmile: I look forward to your photos.

Slow to post and share, but I got an Arya ring last year. Vietnamese lavender spinel and some red spinel. They do shift somewhat in color, but I find this interesting. Arya is an elegant, low-set and comfortable to wear design from Yvonne!

The color of that spinel is amazing! If I could find the right baguette, I'd love to have an Arya ring, that design is right up my alley :)

Welp. I was doing just fine until I saw this thread. Now I got itchy finger again, or as my husband says "a gem stuck in your brain" (lol). I fear I'm gonna have to buy one of CRD's colorful treats. Dang it guys, I was doing really good with the budget until I found this thread!!

I bought a pretty little Benitoite from her. She set it with a halo of lavender sapphires. They look pinkish, but the pendant is beautiful and one of my favorite pieces!

Oh heavenly! How big are the pear dimensions ? It looks so beautiful halo'd. Making me re think my benitoite problem....

Hey now, I'm all about the small yet mighty stones! :D Plus they're so easy to wear. Would love to see neck shots if you'd like to share.

Oh yeah benitoite packs a big punch in a tiny package.

I have a pear from Yvonne but I think it is a tad smaller than 6x4. I have no idea what to do with them all as I have a cluster necklace already. 20210512_162551.jpg
