    Getting these earrings and ring together in one picture wasn’t easy. Very dark blue opal and black and light grey lavender chalcedony earrings today. Pls excuse the ugly blanket, got to keep the dog hair OFF!

    Lovely and the setting too! Is the entire ring original? Almost a bit Art Deco like?

    I think so, my mom bought it from an estate dealer 30 years ago. I suspect it’s a mid century piece though.

    Thank you!

    Tiny spess in the office and under natural (shaded) lighting. Love this small bright stone.

    I hope the Costa coffee in Dubai is better than it is in England, but if not, I'm sure you made up for it by admiring your beautiful, little ring between gulps!

    Haha it’s preloved and while the setting is meh I love the stone so I’ll see if I want to reset the stone in a big halo down the road. :P2 Am not sure the strange setting will grow on me but the tiny spess is a mighty indeed.

    These today and two rings as I wanted to compare their “glowiness”. The spess won.

    @Sunshinelab just because you mentioned wanting to refine your prongs: did you see the sapphire ring that @scouty just had David Klass redo the prongs on? He didn't make the ring, just fixed the prongs. I doubt it would cost much! (Hope its ok I am sharing her before and after pics)

    Still trying out my ‘new to me’ spess. I think I like it with this ring combi best so far (reset of my original engagement ring diamond)...

    Am also warming up to resetting the spess in a big halo. Halos makes everything so much nicer right.

    @alene Teal is the best! That stone inspired one of my favourite rings. I still get tickled whenever I see it because approx two days after I saw your post about purchasing it I ran out and bought myself a teal stone too.

    I didn't know orange spess could be so vivid, yours would be the star of the show in any setting!
