Omg where is that from? Did you have it made? Where did you get the stones? It is STUNNING and I love it!!!!
Thank you!! You’ll die when I tell you. Now normally I never buy anything from the tv shopping channels unless it’s a ring setting or a gem jar. Well when I came across this, I had to hold myself back. I love apatite and I couldn’t find any large cabochons for a good bargain anywhere, or on eBay or Etsy.

It first aired on Evine (now ShopHQ) months ago, but I held back because their jewelry is typically overhyped, over treated and overpriced. Gems en Vogue (Michael Vallitutti) had some nice things and I was looking for cabochon settings for an opal of mine, since they use nickel free silver and you can sometimes get a clearance price. I typically chuck out the center stones and give them to my kids. Well this ring came on and it was much more expensive. I had find something wrong with it, but the rhodochrosite do come from an Argentine mine (Ortiz mine) and can be pricey. Apatite, to me, is a very underrated stone, so when this came on clearance and I got another 20% off for being a new customer, I jumped on it. I got the whole ring for less than what I could find the apatite for.

He describes it in the video and states the stones are untreated. He usually overhypes, but at $137, I thought, “what the heck!!!” Oh yes, it has some side peridot too, but you barely notice them. It’s a very delicate and pretty ring in person.

In 20 years, It’s he only tv shopping channel ring I’ve ever bought where I got it for the stones. It’s not for everyone, and it’s not an everyday ring but I thought it was a great buy.

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.

Beautiful! Love that setting!

I always enjoy seeing the play of color when I wear this Mexican opal 8)
That opal!! :-o:-o

The dreary London sky is very flattering to my engagement ring

Love that sapphire

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
Not really into the setting but that apatite is pretty!

I would never have guessed! It looks so exquisite on your hand. The apatite + rhodochrosite is a great combo. And for that price, too!

Thank you!! Someone just bought the last one after I posted it, so evidently they saw the bargain too!

Haha that might have been me :bigsmile: destined to have the shank sawed off and become a pendant, since it’s nowhere near my ring size!

my old workmate came to visit and took us out to lunch
my great grandma's wedding ring with the diamond i always pair with it for safety
and my green saphire
i brought it as a reward to myself for going in the hearse with mum to the cemetry
i hate cemeteries and would never go and visit Dad's grave so it was a really big deal for me but i know mum would have been happy
of course i brought the ring before i knew all of you and i now know i overpaid and shouid not have brought the first green sapphire i saw
it is actually a pretty green ( just my phone didn't think so) but i really need to learn to love it again like when i first got it 20191019_162825.jpg

Hubby dragged me to Home Depot, so I needed something pretty to look at, so I blinged out with a few rings I switched out from the bank.

Pink spinel, multi color diamond band, mint garnet, violet spinel, opal, my huge cuprian.

Thanks everyone. I haven’t worn that cuprian much because I always wear my other paraiba. It has a GIT memo, and I should. Now I get compliments on it all the time. A little Dawn dishwashing liquid makes it sparkle like crazy. I never realized how glowy it could be.

@TheGarnetGirl, my mom loved that diamond band too. She always wanted to wear it when I saw her. Fond memories.::)

A bracelet with chrysoberyl- I really like its color. Great stone, chrysoberyl. Jill Anish makes such good bezels.
Love this! That contrast between rough and fine is so striking. That chrysoberyl is amazing! Thanks for sharing.

I’ve been wanting a cuff to go with my iron, gold and diamond neck collar, and something like this would be great. The artist who made mine only produces sporadically and i always seem to miss her stuff. Very frustrating.
