A pipe dream but if extra money came my way I’d be tempted.. I keep looking at it all the time.

Oh my!! That is so beautiful.

May as well go all out with the wishing! This is the Sovereigns' Ring, part of the British crown jewels. I have been fascinated with it since I first saw it...it just sings to me! 447154-1392747647.jpg

I'm currently looking (in vain) for loose diamonds to create my own earrings and these are the settings I keep going back to for inspiration, despite the fact that every pair I truly love are way out of my budget. *sigh*.

I totally feel you on the earring hunt. I have been wanted OMC 3 stone dangles for ages. On my quest I have obtained 7mm OMC studs, three stone drops from Elizat, and 2 loose 4.5mm omc cushions from Dolly on IG. Still no closer! But the hunt is fun.

I'm sure many of you have pics saved of rings or other antique pieces that made your jaw drop and you said to yourself, "that's so ME". But maybe it was too expensive or, the practical side of you thought, "where would I really wear this?" . I want to see your pics! And , maybe why it's so YOU or special in your eyes!
I found one today, a deco ring with emeralds, diamonds and black enamel. I love the boldness, the geometric deco lines and it's got some of the most beautiful filigree details in the gallery! Emerald is my birthstone and I would love to have a bold emerald statement piece like this someday!

Looks likes calibre cut onyx in the halo. Very pretty and unique.

How deeply flattering! thank you for the kind words!!!!

If i ever happen to something like it - i will share!

Please do!

I have a lovely antique necklace and chandelier earrings that I LOVE. Oh... and a bracelet too. Clearly, I need a ring to round out the set.

Wait, none of those have worked? Or are they all going to be part of the project? I need details! Elizat has been a great mentor for me - she's talked me off the ledge of buying something I really don't want but think "it's okay" Diamond pairs are hard to come by!

Oh they are all perfect in their own way but I won't pull the finished pieces apart . So I need the bottom stones, which the 7mm studs were supposed to be but they are too perfect as studs.

I've been enchanted by this ring...it casted a sort of spell over me when I saw it ...or maybe it was the Tower of London ' s spell...

It's not antique but I just received my dream vintage piece. It ticks off everything I love and is so totally me.
