Love it, but nosy as I am :lol: spill about the red spinel?! What happened? Was it a cut/depth issue? I hope you kept the blue as they are getting even more rare.
I was toying with putting one of these two in an Oro. Though, the smaller has some inclusions that may be better set into a bezel.

Hello It'sMainlyYou:
Where'd you find your beautiful spinels? I love that bright color.
Your spinels are beautiful - such bright beautiful shades of red with a pink under tone.

Maybe set the larger stone in a ring and the smaller one in a pendant - any inclusions won't be as noticable as if it was set in a ring.

I got lucky early in my CS journey. Both I've had for years. From what I remember, the big one from a lady selling her mom's estate- I kick myself for not buying her out, she had mad stones- I didn't have the money for more and didn't really know what I was looking at at the time. I regret it to this day. The smaller from a collector from France, really nice guy and practically gave it to me. Most of my rocks I picked up from other collectors. Out of the three rings I have, two picked up from antique stores and I had my 20th e-ring made. I continue to scour everywhere but the days of picking up great spinels for my budget is just about gone.;( I will probably set both as rings and rotate them with my other red spinel e-ring. I have a small collection of loose spinel and weirdly, as I love jewelry and obsess over it, I don't really wear that much.

Because of my bad experience I don't have any desire for a replacement spinel. And have thought about selling this one but paid $3K for the stone so I should probably have it recut...

Attached is a vintage ring that's signed DASON. Davidson and Sons was a jeweler in NYC; the shop opened during the 1930s.

Each side of the ring has a different pattern, a woman playing the harp, and scrolling vines and leaves. I had it set with a red zircon from Master Cut Gems.

Thank you... I got the ring on Etsy - twice. The first time the ring was only 10 carat so when I saw another one in 14k I jumped.

Now all I have to do is sell the 10k Dason.

I've got this Edwardian beauty coming next week hopefully. 2.01 OEC N VS1 in its original filagree setting. I'm having a very hard time waiting on this one!

Rue De Chateaudun was renamed hence we can be specific to the date - 1870 to 1878

This might help with dating the box: In 1868, Tiffany & Co. was incorporated with Charles L. Tiffany as president and treasurer, and Gideon F. T. Reed as the vice-president. Apparently Reed was the second in command within Tiffany’s entire empire. In 1875 Reed retired and the Paris branch changed the name to Tiffany & Co.

Vintage inspired floral cluster ring with oec moissanite. The middle is 7mm stone and the surrounding are 4mm. had this made by a seller on Etsy and I love it! It’s the perfect vintage inspired ring for fun spring and summer fashion. Several people told me in another group to use silver on the actual prongs, but I’m glad I stuck with yellow gold. It’s oec moissanite stones. The prongs are very dainty. I can’t wait to see it in sunlight!! I tried so see how it would sparkle with color on the flash and it overwhelmed it. I can’t wait to see the color of it outside in the sun light tomorrow. Also, excuse the little fuze on it it always happens to me.

I like the mount, too. Who made this for you?

A couple years ago I started seeing magazines with women wearing dangle necklaces. I wanted one but couldn't find what I was looking for so decided to make my own. I found 14K gold antique college fraternity fobs and medals on eBay. The larger fob is dated 1924 and the smaller one is 1922.

Although it may seem impractical, I wear it everyday even while hanging around the house.

The coolest thing is I was showing my boyfriend my antique fobs and read the date inscribed on the back. We were both suprised to see February 22, 1922... Because our anniversary also happens to be February 22, 2002!! :oops2:

Love when you find a special date!! One of the best things about finding pieces with engraving.

This was my grandmother’s ring, which my mother gave me after she passed. If I recall correctly, mom told me she got it when she visited us, from a jeweler’s booth at the antique gallery where mom worked in the late 1980s. Not sure how vintage it is, it kind of looks 1960s to me but maybe it’s just an 80’s ring? It’s stamped only 14k.

I take it out once in a while and try to decide if/how I might have it redesigned. I like it from the top view. But I cannot stand the profile views! and I wish it was white gold.

What a nice heirloom! I think it would be beautifully honored if you redid the halo and brought the diamonds closer to the center stone (any leftover could be used in the band or maybe as a gallery accent) while also resetting the center stone lower. It would suit your coloring in white gold.

Happy mail day for me. Just out the box, platinum with diamonds really needs a bath as the diamond is grubby!!
Is this from the Art Deco period?

It does look Art Deco but does the stone look modern? Can’t tell from the photographs but it almost looks like a brilliant stone.

I was thinking a transitional stone, but not sure.

I think you’re right. I hadn’t noticed that before.
