Its my day off and mama has a hand!

My sweet emerald cab ring, new dainty purple star sapphire, and my 18k rose Gold antique pearl and light columbian emerald toi.

@Bluegemz , the antique toi et moi ring is made in 18k rose Gold and that is what I eventually decided on for my emerald engagement ring. Dont you just love how the copper brings out a buttery richness thats feminine in the yellow gold?

@StephanieLynn , the ring on my pinky is the bamboo ring from my story about me manipulating my way to the pawnshop as a kid! Haha

It’s a great choice. I would also, 110%! Rose gold is magical in that way. It’s like yellow gold in a poetry of blush. Especially with emerald. I love your stack today mama!

A few quick pics taken as soon as I ripped open my package from @mrs-b and immediately began wearing this stunning tourmaline set in rose gold. Pics taken in late-afternoon direct and indirect sunlight.

The tourmaline is a gorgeous chameleon, showing mauve pink, purple, and orange flashes every time I turn my hand to admire it. I will treasure it; thank you again @mrs-b!

My favorite welo opal went totally clear as a result of having a damp cloth on it all night. I was pretty worried it would lose its translucent turquoise blue and orange base colors, and magnificent color play. Well thank goodness, the colorplay came back strong and as beautiful as before. It took a few days and between that time, the base was more milky white with little color play as it dried.

I have another opal that’s still drying out!! It has a pinfire pattern that hasn’t come back completely yet. I was most worried about this stone though.

Before and after. Btw, now I at least know the stone hadn’t been dyed, otherwise it wouldn’t look completely clear.

Needed a pick me up this morning so wearing my Gene tourm ring with one of my vintage rings. I like how they look together! Also wearing my Jeff Davies sapphire studs. I tried but couldn't get a decent ear shot.

Thank you! Ethiopian opal is what is known as “hydrophane” opal. That means it is porous and can take on water. Additional water interferes with the transmission of colorplay. This ability makes them very good candidates for dying, so you have to be careful to not to unknowingly purchase a dyed stone. Supposedly, they should return to their original beauty any where from several hours to weeks after drying back out.
