:wavey: Hello all! I'm pretty new here, but think that the "Show me the Bling" forum is probably the right one for me since I keep taking pictures of my new ring and my engagement ring, and after all, what good are the pictures if I don't share them?!

I am also waiting on 2 new pieces to be made (I splurged to purchase a pendant and a bangle for my wedding), so now I am obsessed with staring at old cuts and enjoying their facets and sparkles. So, while I wait, I'd love it if you would all share your lovely jewelry here so I can admire it all while I wait for my pieces! :dance:

Here are my pictures for your viewing pleasure!

Bonus #1: The stone that will go in the necklace:

Bonus #2: The stone that will go in the bangle (I will be putting a blue zircon in the setting so it won't be sitting empty; hopefully I'll be able to find an OEC, but I hear that can be difficult, so we shall see. If anyone has any tips on that, please let me know!)

I have and could be occupied for days with all the gorgeous pieces! I guess these forums are meant more to show off your own bling in a thread rather than expecting others to show you their favorites as well? Being that not one person posted a picture, I am guessing so! :)

Hi Cinqueterre!

Yes, there's a bunch of great jewelry photos on these boards - jaw dropping stuff from here up the wazoo! Here's a thread I started a while back which collates some of the truly great pieces on PS:

[URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/the-pricescope-hall-of-fame-iconic-pricescope-jewelry.212533/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/the-pricescope-hall-of-fame-iconic-pricescope-jewelry.212533/[/URL]

This thread is not meant to be pictures of people's favorites as much as photos of pieces considered iconic or well loved or just controversial. Some pieces represent the beginning of various trends while some encapsulate various styles.

However - having said that..... :bigsmile:

Here's my favorite three! (ETA it ended up being 4!)

1) My 7+mm sapphire (unheated) surrounded by 2.08ctw E VS stones in platinum be Steven Kirsch

2) My ex-5.2ct OEC (it might have been 5.3 - I can't remember now and foolishly decided it wasn't 'me', so don't have it any more) in a plain Classic setting by Brian Gavin Diamonds

3) My 5 stone ruby and diamonds band in 18kt rose gold. The band is from 1910 but the stones were replaced by me - well, by David Klass, anyway...

4) And lastly - my 1.97ctw diamond studs - stones from BGD and James Allen, set in a 18kt (actually - thinking about it - it might be 14kt - I can't recall, but I *think* it was 18kt...) bezel set cushion setting by BGD.

And welcome, CinqueTerre! :wavey:

PS Here's another thread full of fabulous photos that you might enjoy:

Sure is!

[URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/bgd-1-95ctw-yellow-gold-studs-plus-a-couple-of-family-shots.222292/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/bgd-1-95ctw-yellow-gold-studs-plus-a-couple-of-family-shots.222292/[/URL]

Hmmm. In this thread I say they're 1.97ctw. In the thread to which I just linked you, I say they're 1.95ctw. I think they were both .97 of a ct and when added together were 1.95ctw. My math can sometimes leave something to be desired. :twirl: Either way, they're both 6.43mm across. I try to match for diameter as precisely as I can. They're both K color, with one a VS1 and one a VS2.

This style is now for sale with BGD in case you're interested from that perspective.

Wait, I feel like I need an update CinqueTerre since I saw your other thread. I know you bought that gorgeous OEC ring from Dawn and then a pretty transitional from FK. But where did this other ring/stone come from? Details, please!

Cinque Terre that's a beautiful new ring! The sapphire is lovely as well. There are so many gorgeous pieces of jewelry on this site, it's incredible. I have photos of the 3 rings I wear on a regular basis these days. I started a thread for my latest piece:

[URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/leon-meg%C3%A9-paraiba-ring.225500/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/leon-meg%C3%A9-paraiba-ring.225500/[/URL] 20160914_080558_0.jpg

I should probably start a thread on this one that I got earlier this year, an OMC 3.2ct N color VS2

20160402_172320.jpg

2.1ct D color SI1.

I used to wear my pear ring but I've put it away for my son. If you like pears, I recommend looking here:

mrs.b: Thanks for the warm welcome and posting those great threads for me to drool over. Also, your jewelry is to die for! I especially love your colored stones; the blue is ethereal and the rubies with the rose gold are such a lovely combination.

Phoenix: Well, I can see why you had to pick 4, I would have trouble choosing too! So, so beautiful.

Doberman: All of your pieces are gorgeous, but oh my goodness, that Paraiba is just stunning. I don't think I've ever seen one like it!

Wildcat03: I bought it from Athenaworth actually! (Unless there is someone else with the user name Athenaworth and I am confusing them. I bought it from the shop GildedLane on Etsy.)

Athenaworth: Why can't you play?!? I've seen on IG that you have some real beauties in your personal collection! I'm new here though, so maybe there's a reason you can't play?

LaurenK: What a lovely rings! Is the pear an antique cut or am I making things up? Either way, it's ridiculously pretty!

Yep, I'm Gilded Lane. But because I'm trade I can't post pics. It's a totally fair PS policy but man it makes me miss my pure consumer days when I could annoy everyone with lots and lots of pictures!!

I thought you could post pics as long as the items were in your personal collection and not for sale?

Wow, Diamondseeker, somehow I missed that the CVB emerald-cut sapphire ring is yours! I drool over those pics on Etsy frequently but guess I didn't look at SMTB around that time. It's a big part of the reason why one of my next planned purchases is an emerald cut sapphire. All three of those pictures are so nicely staged - I especially like the solitaire one with the pearls - so classic, so you.

Marcy - I also somehow missed pictures of your sapphire ring before. That color is PERFECT, omg. And I love the one with all the light coming out of your emerald cut!

Thank you so much, distracts! Like you, I am a sapphire lover! I was very thrilled to find an emerald cut one in a color I had been wanting. And Caysie really made the perfect setting! I give info on where I found the stone in my thread, and there are a lot more pictures!

Arkie -

I had no idea you had a VC Emilya - what a beauty it is! Just looked up its thread and found that it's a gorgeous fat-starred tranny.

Beautiful!
