Oops, I did it again! I MUST go on a ban effective immediately!

I found this nice family owned jewelry store with a great estate section and they had what is now my first colored stone piece. I thought it fitting that she is a garnet, my birthstone.

She will need a name. Taking suggestions…

No name ideas here :( Not that creative. But definitely lots of OMG it's GORGEOUS!! Garnet is one of my favourite coloured stones other than sapphires. I'm dyin over here!! :0

I was smitten as soon as I saw her. I had been wanting a garnet but nothing ever caught my eye. I should have taken more pics before I left. (She stayed to be sized.) But I’ll get her next week and then photobombs galore!

Awww, thank you! I truly appreciate that!

Looking forward to hand shots!
As soon as I have her, I promise to oblige. (She’s being sized right now.)

Thank you! I hope to have her the first part of the week.

I’ll see you around the island :) haha

Gorgeous ring though!
LOL! I’ve been sooooo bad this year! You too?

Well, she’s not a Ruby-but she makes me think of Dorothy’s ruby slippers. So I’m going with Dorothy!
That’s a great suggestion! Always been a fan of Wizard of Oz.

Welcome to the CS world! To me it's much more dangerous than the diamond world because of all the colors and shades in between!

I say Charlotte. I have no idea why. Lol
I have a feeling she’s not going to be my only CS! Hope I can behave, tho. LOL!

And Charlotte is a personal favorite name.

I would call her Merlot.

ETA: I would also be happy to take away your debit card. :lol-2:
Hahahaha!!!! You can have it. There’s nothing left right now.

Oh, and pretty suggestion!

This scene came to my mind first.

I would call her Scarlett O’Hara.

Love the name Scarlet as referenced above!
Yes! I do too!

Oh I like that one! Also we need more pics:)
Me too! And yes, more to come once I get pick her up from the jeweler.

The first thing I thought I'd was Judy, as in Judy Garland. Judy Garnet... Judy Garland... Close enough :)
Ahhhh…. witty! Love the creativity!

If be happy to take away the bling. That's how you get off ban Island right? Decrease your collection size?
Hahahaha! Oh, is that how? Well, I am sending two pieces to Grace this coming week. Hopefully they will sell fast and I can go back home.

This ring is an absolute smoke show. I’d just call her Lita, like Lita Ford but also like lit.

Diffused natural light


That setting is just perfect… It looks like it cradles her! I don’t remember if you are going to wear her on your right hand….I always struggle with that myself. I wind up wearing the colored stone on my left hand with a band. Will she be a right hand ring?
