The Fire Thread!

In the course of taking regular pics of my ring, I ended up with a few small but nice fire shots. That got me wondering what I could get if I really tried. So I got up very early one morning, cleaned the ring and patio table up and got to work.

The low, early morning sun proved perfect for catching some pretty neat shots, I think anyway, but unfortunately it proved great for catching every spec of dust floating around too. It also managed to make my clean ring look like it had been through a war, so much for cleaning everything.

At any rate, I had a blast shooting these, although it proved WAY harder than regular photos, one false move and the shot is gone. I''''m surprised I didn''''t pass out on a couple, as I literally held my breath to get them. lol

I then wanted to post them, and looked for a fire thread, I was sure there would be one, but I couldn''''t find any. So I contacted the moderators to be sure, and asked if there really wasn''''t one, would it be alright if I started one, that everyone could contribute to, and they readily agreed. Yay! So, here is a place where you can shamelessly post your stones putting on a show. It doesn''''t matter how big or small, they''''re all beautiful. Some of my favorites are with very little fire. So, grab those cameras and get to work!

I ended up with a bunch, imagine that.

I don''''t know if this first one technically applies, but it''''s colored and it''''s coming off my ring, and I thought it was just too neat not to post. Obvious movement.

Need I say more.. The room lights up like a disco ball!

Overall - the bigger the stone the better! Lol :cool2::cool2::cool2:

In terms of cut, the larger faceting in EC gives out more intense fire but the brilliant cut has more consistent sparkles despite being smaller due to more crushed faceting.

This ring makes me crazy. I was stunned when I first saw it and just as much now. What a wonderful design!! That airline!! I don't usually like big old rings but your ring transcends period and trend. I would copy this if I could. (I can't.)
