We need more info about the gorgeous yellow ring.:D
Fancy yellow diamond ring I bought from Diamonds by Lauren about 7 years ago.

It reminds me of sunflower and I love sunflowers!

I think the centre is 1.08 ct fancy yellow

The other diamonds were in a parcel and they just made it into this ring which I could not resist! I'm so glad I bought it because I would have always pined for it forever since it was something that was in my budget and not out of reach.

Once again not going out hence yet another desktop display for the week:
Mexican opal, diamond, tsav, tourmaline

The opal was looking meh so I tried with diffused light but still no good. Definitely needs spotlighting or sunlight. But anyway since it is my son’s favorite ring am still keeping it there for the week. Daughter’s fav is the tourmaline. Diamond flower is a reset of my original engagement ring so this is a sentimental week! Tsav just caught my eye no reason haha. 8)

The opal shows just how incredibly hard gemstones can be to photograph. Thanks for sharing, gorgeous as per usual :)

They look fantastic together. So pretty and beautifully balanced.
Thank you. Working from home now because of Covid means I hardly wear jewelry. So I went to put those bangles and am also wearing a small diamond cross now :lol:

Oh, that color!!!
Thanks! But it doesn’t usually look like that. Knowing what I know I have trust issues with a lot of vendor photos haha

Here is another under the sun (the earlier ones were restaurant, car in sun, restaurant, shaded natural light in that order)

This sapphire really loves the sun. I have others that are not so sun loving (silkier ones).

I know I keep showing the same rings, but the bulk of my collection is in my safety deposit box which I’ve been avoiding to go to because of the pandemic. I like this pic because the chrysoberyl really shows off that neon color.
Does chrysoberyl show well indoor too? I've been wondering if I want one.

Weekend vibes...showing them under different light settings, inspired by icy_jade's post on her sapphire ring.

Thanks for the pics! I’m always curious to see how gems perform under different lighting. So some at their best under the sun, some in the shade and some just under spotlights etc. Which is also why I find it so hard to shop online I guess... so hard to figure out what the gems will look like irl.

100%!

CG shopping could be such a hard game, but oh so rewarding. IMHO.

Indoor natural light vs indoor artificial light
