    @Daisys and Diamonds thank you! It actually started out as an engagement ring I had DK make, but the halo was too big for me as a daily wedding ring. I had him swap out the stones, and love it more as a home for the zircon!

    No bling shots (they were covered in sunscreen as per usual so I gave up), but I found this really interesting

    I absolutely love your Ruby! Do you mind sharing the dimensions and deets? I think this is the first time I've seen hand shots of it (not just your prev avatar). Do you wear it by itself or with a wedding band as well?

    @Mrs_Strizzle thanks for the compliment. I did post a few hand shots before of this ring. I love it because of the intense vivid color even though clarity isn't the best (inclusion visible under loupe and magnification). One such previous post is linked below and shows the truer red color from a digital camera.

    The deets: unheated, Tanzanian origin, 1.14ct, 6.32mmx5.25mm, 1.5mm F VS diamonds, 14k WG. I have a chevron wedding band to go with it, but l don't have my wedding date planned yet (foreign fiancé, need to work out immigration logistics), so I let DF hold on to the wedding band.

    It is so beautiful, congrats! And congrats on your engagement. I hope all works out well and steadfast. I tell everyone I imported my hubby too, although it was just from Southern California. But that's almost like a foreign country compared to where we live:lol:.

    Lovely!

    I don’t know the context for the soup, but that one is my favorite. My mom has to make that for me when I show up at home. :twisted2:

    My Gem Silica girl is traveling with me to work today. :kiss2: This ring makes me so happy! It's like a cheerful little blue-green piece of candy!

    Oh & @PreRaphaelite ! I was wearing your 18k rose Gold baby yesterday. This is only temporary but I couldnt help it- I would need to have the prongs professionally straightened and redone anyways so I decided to hold my breath and set a little light Columbian emerald into the current basket myself. I love how it looks so I will definetely carefully wear it and enjoy it until I can find the appropriate jeweler and a better emerald. Just thought youd like to see a sprig of color in it for a change!
