My Christmas present arrived today and you know I couldn't just leave it there!

I was seeking to create a girly girl stack and found this sweet pink tourmaline and rose gold band on LT. Thanks @Ally66 for offering this up, I love it!

Man that spinel (?) is beautiful! Is there a thread on it, with the story??

@Begonia, thank you so much, she really is a stunner. There are two threads on it. The reset thread is here:


When I first got it:


There is not a thread with the full story so the short story is that I was looking for the perfect lavender spinel for months. Then an LT listing came up with this amazing sapphire in the middle, first being sold for $899 then $799 and I bought it as $699. When I got it home and took it to my gemologist she found it was not a sapphire at all but a natural spinel! I was leery anyways because it was the most sparkly sapphire I had ever seen! Bought a sapphire and got a spinel lol!

With how dangerous this thread is, appreciating some new options this past week.
However, can’t function with 4 for very long!
:wink2:
I saw your first picture by itself before I scrolled down and I thought it was "WOW clean and crisp!!" I really like the second one too. So much texture makes it a totally different look. Lovely stacks.

I’m wearing my new flower bezel band with my marquise and dot band and BN eternity band...She’s wider than my other bands so I couldn’t wear it with Libby. I have serious finger muffin but hope it will settle down later today! She’s very sparkly!

Thank you @Luvallgems! I can’t get use to it though...It doesn’t fit on my right hand..and it’s too wide to go with an engagement ring on my left hand. I would have to wear it with the thin bands like I just wore them..I missed wearing an ering...so I had to take it off. I love the ring though...haha

Mamabean, that flower bezel ring is SO pretty! May I ask where you found her?

Some screen shots of the video I took. It was so cold and my hand was frozen just for the minute or two I took video. Darn Raynauds. Luckily Bubbalah kept it fiery and warm.
I thought I saw a shot of light in the sky! She is soooooo pretty!
Thanks Joanne. Here are 2 screenshots from the video I took. It is freezing cold and my hands were burning just for the minute I took some pics and video. They get numb and then burning and then change colors. It's crazy. Darn Raynauds and Chilblains. Oh the price we pay for bling shots haha.

A gorgeous crisp but cold day. The sea and sand are just the perfect backdrop to our diamonds (and men) don't you think?

This is the wrong place but I will forget again @missy if I don’t mention it now. I have Raynauds too! My feet and hands turn purple when I’m the least bit cold. It also affects my chin but my doctor said that’s not possible. Well how come my chin gets purple with my feet and hands when it’s cold out. It even happens when it’s not even that cold. The doctor’s office is terrible if they leave me in a gown.. I turn into a purple mess!

My engagement and wedding band together are very over the top! Loving loving loving the simplicity of this stack. Love having options.

Engagement ring- 1.8mm Platinum Custom
Middle band- 1mm?? YG Vrai & Oro (I cant find the ring online anymore and the only one listed is 1.5mm, and I think it’s thinner than that)
Inner band- 3mm YG Blue Nile

I totally love this! I may also be a bit biased since I have an essentially identical stack that I wear JUST like this quite frequently! I'll try to grab a photo of it tomorrow!

@CJMT2018, if ”over the top” means classic and elegant, then your stack is way over the top!! Love your huge e-ring with the simple gold bands:kiss2:!!

Simplicity is elegance itself.

Oh my @Mamabean yes that is definitely related to your Raynauds. I have very severe symptoms as well unfortunately. My fingers tend to ulcerate and bleed. Chilblains. Which my derm says is very unique to see in the states. LOL leave it to me to have a unique case. The best way to manage this (and I am sure you already know this) is to keep your hands and toes and body warm. It's the best way. Once we get symptoms it's harder to get under control. I have found the hot hands for my hands and feet really help so much. I get them at Costco. Let me find a link for you.


I can get Raynauds symptoms in the 60s F sometimes. It's that bad. Keeping them warm is key.

Thank you @missy..I will check them out...

We sleep under a really warm comforter (even in summer with AC at full blast) so my feet/toes are OK. But my nose always gets pink and cold if the air is cool. I think it is all related to Raynauds and poor circulation. When we cycle I wear a face mask if the temps are cooler than 70 F. It really helps. I am over worrying what others think of me looking crazy with a face mask on lol.

Of course when the temps are in the 20s no one gives me a second glance but really no one cares anyway and I notice others wearing masks in the warmer temps now too. Maybe I am setting a trend haha.


Joanne, there are meds you can take to help. I cannot take them because it would worsen my rosacea but there are definitely meds to help your circulation if it is affecting your quality of life. Calcium channel blockers.
