Aw man, now I'm going to have to resuscitate cushioncutnut too! :lol:

Thanks again everyone! Im particularly flattered that you enjoyed all the high karat gold, as I didn't think there would be much of an audience for that (apart from aficionados like Sharon and Deb of course!)

AN, alas I'm staying anonymous on PS, but I look forward to seeing your wedding pics in BWW! You will look gorgeous without doubt.

Variety is certainly the spice of life. I like all types of jewellery, and wish I could get more of my family to buy other stones but they are fixated on rubies, sapphires and emeralds. My mother ADORES rubies.

I've missed out the wedding pearls as I don't think we are allowed to post them outside the pearls forum.

But expect an update early next year, after my dearest grandmother gives me her wedding present. I would rather have a sliver of her jewellery more than anything else, but alas I think she will be tempted to buy me something new ;(

I am extremely lucky as we are BIG sharers in our family and I won't even take any of this jewellery abroad, as my aunts and cousins will happily let me raid their own collections. I'll sneak some photos of their swag for this thread when I'm there for your viewing pleasure :Up_to_something: :Up_to_something: :Up_to_something:

You have been a fantastic crowd, thank you and goodnight! :wavey:

You know... a few years ago I would've been like *meh gold* .. but after seeing what excellent high carat gold looks like- I LOVE IT. I refused to wear any yellow gold before, but now I am liking all colors of gold. I don't own anything like that so it is really great seeing your pieces.

Again, thank you for sharing ::)

i saved the best for last (well they are one of my favourite sets anyway....)

wedding present from my parents.

diamonds and rubies in yellow gold, the photos don't do them justice. they are really gorgeous on.

No doubt. Wow!

I especially like the line necklace and the gold one with the cabochon rubies and emeralds too.

Thanks for sharing your bling with us! :appl:

Rosetta, did you get a wedding present from your grandmother?

Your collection is jaw dropping! I had an Asian doctor the other week when I was in hospital and I noticed her earrings. I wondered for a split second if it was you. High karat gold is so beautiful in real life!

If I didn't have skin the colour of gone-off milk I would be trying to sneakily sidle into your culture :cheeky:

OMG, I know I'm more than a year late but this line just made me laugh so hard I nearly tee-tee'd. HAHAHA!

Rosetta how AMAZING is your collection...I'm so so glad I found this thread! All of your pieces are truly stunning, but I find myself particularly infatuated with all of your gorgeous bangles. YUMMO! I wish we were besties and neighbors. :D

Hi Rhea,

Since you resuscitated the thread, you get some pics!

Yes, I did get my wedding present from my gran. The only pic I have is one from the wedding. Its the bangle closest to my hand, yellow gold and red and green enamel. It's beautiful in real life and I can totally wear it on its own. The other bangles are from my inlaws and the two biggest ones are from my husband's paternal grandmother, whom we sadly lost earlier this year :blackeye:

Here are the rosecut diamond bangles my husband bought as a wedding presents (I mentioned them earlier in the thread but never posted photos). I really like the screw and hinge system, it keeps the bangles close to my wrist. They are some of my favourites!

I also promised some photos of my family's jewels. I've posted this photo before, but the white and yellow gold bangles are from my aunt's vast collection.

ETA: and there is my granny's gift again!

And lastly, just to show you how jewellery fixated our culture is....

I'm wearing my aunt's (this is another aunt, I have seven!) gold and ruby collar necklace. And I'm contemplating whether I'm too underblinged. Perhaps I need to add my other aunt's vintage pearl, gold and ruby long necklace on top?

(I came to my senses and stuck to the one I had on already! :bigsmile: )

Hope you enjoyed the updates Rhea! It wasn't me, I am completely unblinged at work, I don't like to distract from my work and rings pose an infection risk :))

And thank you so much BaylorSays and EVERYONE else for your interest!

What ring are you wearing in these pictures? Doesn't appear to be either of your erings but rather an EC with trillion sides maybe?

Just seen this thread! Rosetta, you are a dark horse! When we were doing the shots of all our jewellery together a few months ago, and you and I were talking, you never mentioned that these amazing photos existed, and also on that silly thread that "someone" started about asking how good-looking we all are, you went on at length about how ugly you are - but you're clearly beautiful!

I don't think you're a doctor at all. I think you're a princess!

Seriously, there are no words to describe your jewellery. I don't think anyone on PS has a collection like this.

I'm also interested to know about your emerald-cut ring - which looks DELICIOUS!

Tell us about it, Princess Doctor Rosetta! :lol:

Hi Rosetta,

I came across this thread when browsing the pricescope pinterest board. I particularly love the traditional yellow gold pieces. They are gorgeous and intricate. Thank you for sharing! Amazing!
