Haha the name came because I was so excited after buying a yellow diamond ring from DBL. I'd been obsessed with a yellow diamond for so long before that.
I know you are having fun with your jade but girl, that yellow diamond ring is a knockout! Put it on and take some pics ok? Maybe pair it with that cool diamond bracelet? Have you done a "show me all your rings on one hand" yet? Get cracking!! :lol-2:

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.
thank you for the info
that's amazing

This is just a gorgeous combination I love it! More info on the ring please?!!
Thank you! The ring is pure 24k gold with some pressed in flowers designs around a simple, white checker board moonstone which is set from below. Only the top comes through. What drew me to this piece was it’s its purity. It reminded me of a pool of salt water in a dry and hot desert.

I got these gemstone stretch bracelets to wear in fall and I was amazed by how the light tigers eye looks like pure gold! I was never a fan of tigers eye, but I thought I’d try the lighter kind. I haven’t taken these off since and have stacked a yellow and white jadeite bangle with them which is just fun.

I bought a test purchase from a vendor to see their stones. I kept the test purchase and found a used mounting. I had it set and polished. Not a bad outcome.

The setting isn't what I normally pick, but it fits and I like it well enough! The other larger sapphire Casey is doing a ring, which I bought after this test run.

My new rhodochrosite and apatite ring. The apatite is a 10x12 mm like the 4 carat spinel next to it. The orangy pink crystalline rhodochrosite kind of blend into my skin, but I like the combo of warm and cool stones. 03904B8A-3002-4C7B-B1CC-DD0036F3574A.jpeg 71C1013B-E98F-461F-BEAD-65A02BABD8AE.jpeg C6D00A21-59EA-4394-AAC7-6E72E2B909D2.jpeg

Is it overkill if I post pics of this ring basically every day? It’s new enough so that when I look down at my hand I still go “omg what IS that!?!!?? It’s SO BRIGHT” and then take a moment to admire. I’m constantly being caught off guard while doing ordinary things like eating or opening doors.

Here it is looking particularly excessive.
