In the last couple months, I ended up with one of my grandpa’s wedding bands, my grandma’s original engagement ring (the illusion setting was clipped off when she had a new wedding ring made), a flat band and a half round band both in rose, & reset my old five stone into a seven stone band in rose. So I’ve had a lot of new combination options to wear around my living room ;)2:lol-2:

Stunning collection of bands!

If the photos don't have to be solely bling...

A small plant growing through a tiny crack on some stone stairs:

A hand-me-down jade ball pendant on a box purchased in Cordoba, Spain:

This was taken on a trip to Korea a long time ago. The Hanja characters on the kimchi dish means "Three Generations". May all generations of our loved ones stay safe and healthy during this difficult period.

most of my jewlery comes from the mall

this is one of my better trade me (NZ email) auction wins
its peridot and aquanarine
it only needs to be resized a tiny amount to fit
im hoping now im on a diet due to fear of not being able to get a supermarket delivery before the cuboards are bare because im doing what the govt told us and ive been shopping nornally and i can't go out because Gary has too many risk factors 20200323_171700.jpg
anyway im hoping by the time this is all over it might fit and not need to be resized - obviously not for my index finger 20200323_171731.jpg :appl:

this little cacti has been flowering its heart out for 2 months on my kitchen window sill
excuse typos as usually
too late too fix it :doh:

Such beautiful pops of colours during this terrible time. Working from home is the new norm for us.
Thank you DiaDiva! Stay safe and healthy.

I love this idea, distract with beauty, remind us all that there are many joys in life no matter the circumstances.
A plant ("fuchsia")I bought last week, covered in hot pink buds, promising to attract hummingbirds...then it blooms this week, and the blooms are purple inside! Yes, please!

We have a dove nesting box on our side patio. The dove babies were born last week, but yesterday flew for the first time, and settled on our fan. The fan twirled slowly in the breeze, giving the babies a carousel ride!

Oh I hope mine grows up to be that pretty! I had never seen this plant before, was so pleased when I saw these first blooms. ;-)

This depressing time is even more so for me...my rings have both been sent in...1 for general maintenance and re-rhodium plating, and the other to be reset into a completely new ring. I miss my sparklies!! Thank goodness for Pricescope. It’s a great distraction! 305B3432-5D47-48BA-95A7-4DE8FB16E603.jpeg

A few pieces I have stored on my phone that I often look through for a pick-me-up. There are some feelings that only beauty can inspire... that beauty never fails to inspire...


- - - - - - - - - -

@missy's father's gift to her mother in 1972 - a Cartier lightning ridge opal fit for a goddess:

1585023079284.png

- - - - - - - - - -

An old PSer @soycoffee's set - OEC in Sally's Lotus setting with plain band. Heartbreakingly lovely in its delicacy and simplicity:

1585023364472.png
1585023381045.png

- - - - - - - - - -

@cokitty's glorious, hauntingly rich spinel set masterfully by Steven Kirsch:

1585023568147.png

- - - - - - - - - -

@Haven's Burdeen's OMB beauty - the reset that birthed an era of PS trends:

1585023636154.png
1585023664657.png
1585023676830.png

- - - - - - - - - -

@Catmom's bejewelled critters! It's impossible not to smile at these! ::)

1585023938603.png
1585026125458.png

- - - - - - - - -

@iluvcarats's Van Craeynest bangle - old-world artistry that's rare and precious nowadays:

1585024190878.png

- - - - - - - - - -

Not owned by a PSer - MC2's Flora pieces in bloomed gold. Organic dimensionality and simplicity, perfectly bottled and preserved :love:

1585024180283.png

- - - - - - - - - -

@hathalove's style. Talk about effortlessly chic ::)

1585024480125.png

- - - - - - - - - -

Also not owned by a PSer as far as I know. This piece has hypnotized me for years - I feel like she could tell a thousand stories, but she wouldn't tell them to just anyone - you'd have to coax them out.

1585024542136.png

- - - - - - - - - -

@mrs-b's hoops. Custom made to suit her in every way - size, weight, diameter, width, closure. Sometimes "perfect" comes in deceptively simple packaging ::)

@amoline's otherworldy akoyas. I never knew pearls like this existed before he shared these with us here. A living, breathing creature right here in our seas created these...

@starryeyed's DBTY from WF. Utterly decadent.

@eh613c's effortless and bold bracelet stack has three pieces I'd never have thought to put together - a delightful reminder to think outside my own boxes!

View attachment 742408

- - - - - - - - - -

@kayla17's Tiffany enchant butterfly - I saw this piece in-person many years ago, the first time I'd ever seen rose cuts and full cuts juxtaposed, it took my breath away - and 5ct CZ pendant from her then-8yo son :love:

View attachment 742409

- - - - - - - - - -

@soxfan's old OEC cluster ring by CvB - just the most perfect halo I've ever seen, and the inspiration for my opal earrings. I adore everything about this ring - the proportions, the angle of the halo, the prongs, the milgrain, the metal colours...

1585028224432.png

@megeve's pave Trinity bracelet. One day I will buy this for myself, and I will call it My Precious and hoard it gleefully. One day. One day.

@sarahb's huge eternity says "more is better" and I agree wholeheartedly :cool2:

Pearls... without "bridal", without "kitschy". A challenge that Hisano Shepherd has mastered!

@Resonance.Of.Life's ring stack. Inimitably elegant.

@icy_jade has an absolutely enviable collection of pearls - I have so many pearls photos that happen to be her pieces!! Here's one of my favourites - those colours are unbelievable:

View attachment 742417

- - - - - - - - - -

My own old U-prong in unplated 14k WG. I wanted larger stones, so had this same U-prong style remade... I chose platinum the second time round, and I hugely regret it - I miss that soft antique-lace colour. I'll have my eternity remade in the right metal one of these days.

@jadeleaves' Torchiere. Mark Morrell perfected molten metal fluidity:

@pinkjewel's RDG floral spectacle - this is the sort of piece that's guaranteed to turns heads!

View attachment 742421

- - - - - - - - - -

@JPie's ethereal rose cut cluster from JbG. Every time I see this photo I'm reminded of brisk, sunny mornings outside eating WeetBix whilst my mum hung sheets on the clothesline. I have no idea why this photo (of someone else's ring, no less!) unfailingly evokes this particular memory. But there it is.

And another day begins. Hope everyone is keeping well.

Mum's old amethyst necklace set in silver. I like the dichroism of the amethysts.

A blue sapphire ring.

And some personal shots of nature for those of us who are missing the outdoors because of social distancing, working-from-homes, quarantines or lock-downs. Please do take care and keep faith. This too shall pass.

New seven stone from DK should be here tomorrow. With the California lockdown, his regular photographer couldn't take pictures. He was able to take a few with his phone and I thought this picture was beautiful. My inspiration came from mrs-b's seven stone.
Set in platinum, and 1.9 ctw. I will take more pictures tomorrow when I get it.

Edited to add a photo of our green cheek, yellow sided conure. It's so calming to be around her. We love her so much.
