    @Bluegemz, you have a stunning collection, so it is very hard to have any favorites. This setting, and its mysterious stone, stands out to me as superb!

    237F9B07-8473-4922-8521-56498F985536.jpeg Today’s CS of the day: blue topaz. Not sure if it qualifies as electric blue or not. I mostly just bought it for the cool vintage setting.

    Wow!! Now that’s my kind of ring. I love the retro details and the honker size!! Awesome! If it’s an original stone,it might be synthetic blue spinel. It looks like the color, but that setting is amazing!!

    I’m a sucker for a cool, old setting. Even cheap stones got cool settings back in the day. I think you’re onto something with the synthetic spinel.

    @mellowyellowgirl I know you noticed it in the past. It could just be the camera making this sapphire look different. I posted it last year, and you were the first one to call it small and mighty. I am pasting my original post from that thread below :P2.

    Awww thanks @minousbijoux!!! You have gorgeous pieces. I'm so flattered you like this ring!

    @T L I looked far and wide for this colour and was always too scared to pull the trigger because in my mind the shade I wanted was very specific. It's like a dream come true.

    Too many rings, not enough places to wear them so I've decided to really load up my fingers.

    Plus it's getting so cold here I'm in a coat so can't wear my bangles. I'm going to compensate with rings!!!

    Out for a late supper and threw on one of my new jadeite scenery pendants to jazz up a plain white top!

    20190508_121534_HDR.jpg I am so happy it is Spring! Today I am wearing a new opal ring with amazing colours I cannot capture. Also my sleepy lavender spinel and my favourite star sapphire ring!

    Cool! Post pics! I held my baby nephew who was born today. We were joking about meconium sounding like a rare mineral. Someone joked that my ring were meconium!:lol:

    Hey, congratulations!!! That’s true...meconium does sound mineral like lol.

    I only have these pics now of the opal ring which I got on Etsy. One is a bad evening pic and one is a seller picture. It’s a whopper with dark crystal body and mostly dark blue flashes emerging from layers within the darkness, though it’s really tough to capture. Reminds me of space somehow. The black and blue opals are the kind that I have been most fascinated with recently and I wanted to see how I like them in person. Hopefully I can wear it without cracking it, as I’ve done to my last 2 opal rings. So this is an experiment of sorts. Hopefully the setting will help. I will wear the combo tomorrow and take another picture.

    It's beautiful Blugemz!!!!! I have been eyeing that ring for months! Actually when you mentioned you wanted a dark opal with blue flashes I thought of it - I am not sure why I did not mention it but I am so glad you have it! Please post many more pics indoors and out. I am so curious about it!
