    Glad you are loving them & the options you have!

    My pear is a D, VS2, Ideal cut, no flour. I think it’s a really cool thing to see though! My eternity ring diamonds are all matched also with no flour, but i’d like a way to test my other bits & bobs without having to buy a fancy light. Any tips?

    I am not very familiar with the proper lights for it. My hubby happens to use a black-light type tool at work so he brought it home to look at the stones. It's pretty nifty to see but once is enough for me!

    Aw thank you! She and my dad married 56 years ago in 1963. I distinctly remember her getting it remade although I don’t think changed a lot, midway through the 80s. I think she really liked the retro style on jewellery and of course, NZ in the 60s was probably like the late 40-50s anyway! :lol-2:

    Beautiful bands! I love the texture of them and the middle one is really pretty with the 3 + 1 alternation.

    wall o bling is always fun! And the marquise on the end of the stack is a nice reflection of the point pear up top.

    Stacks from the last couple of days-

    5 stone ring with a cool David Yurman Berries cable ring and Tiffany (plus my ever present Hermes leather Hapi and Kendra Scott). on the index finger is a piece of rutilated lemon quartz I got a couple of decade ago and had in a pendant. It occurred to me it was calibrated so I got an inexpensive setting and plopped it in, because I tend to wear scarves and not necklaces and now its had more wear in a week than in the past 20 years....

    And back to my preference today...yellow gold... my old stone in its current YG setting paired with a couple of stackers (On the arm...Hermes KDT with Uno de 50 bracelet)

    They most definitely are! I love this style!

    Thank you Sparkle-ruckle! I love H leather bracelets. They are superb.

    Your 5 stone ring is beautiful. Could you tell me where you bought it from? I like how it seems to hug your finger and not protrude outward on the sides, and it looks to sit low on the finger. thanks!

    I hate how my new cell phone case reflects & makes my diamonds look hazy & tinted (FARRRR more than their actual color is/presents in person). In person, the diamond is super clean & clear and bright. If it weren’t such a PITA, I would pop the case off for bling pics. :doh:

    Nevertheless, I am sporting my OEC stacked with my JA spacer and giving the MRB a rest for a few weeks.

    The big pictures are good... I hate it when someone posts little pictures and you have to squint to make out the faceting pattern :(

    hi sparlie- thanks! The 5 stone came from IDJ as a present from Mr Bcat a few years ago. I asked for a very low to the finger setting and that is what they did. I think it is a very basic shared prong type of setting.

    My cell phone does the same thing. What i see in person is rarely what I see in a picture....love all those prongs! The more prongs the better!

    Thank you, and yes, it is frustrating. I thought - by going with a white-ish cover, that it would eliminate the obstruction appearances I would see in my other pics, but now, it just makes them all look hazy/milky, which is definitely not what I see in person.

    God, I love this CVB style... it remind me of a ring that would be worn by the Tudors or some other Renaissance-era royalty. **swoon**

    Today's stack is almost the same as the other day, but I caught my pear doing some awesome stuff in a certain light, and tried to capture it. So hard to capture aren't they, but she looks fairly close in this pic as it did IRL! Still can't believe my dream diamond is on my finger..........

    Really pretty! Love that 3 stone!

    oops- yes. Sorry, I am out of practice on that... It is 1ctw and I am about a size 6-6.25 depending on the weather. I think this ring is sized as a 6 from them but they run just slightly larger on their sizing.

    Gorgeous! Love the little YG spacer for contrast.

    Excuse the state of my hands...

    Full out bling today! I’m catching a flight where I have no checked baggage and I suspect my hand carry will be pretty close to the maximum weight allowed. The solution? Wear ALL the bling!

    Here we have the DK band made from repurposed diamonds, my Zina pink diamond band and of course, the attention demanding CVB Norah!

    I don’t normally wear the graduated eternity with my three stone, but I do love them both.....so today they got to play together!

    For today, a wee bit of blue!
    Finally today ordered a set of 3 silver bands, to use as spacer bands when I stack, as I am not as fond of the yellow gold in there!
