I've reduced my ring wearing so much over the past nine months, because hand sanitizer is damaging to rings. This sapphire band from CVB has gotten more wear than any of my other colored stone rings. I'm enjoying wearing it today. This photo was taken in the shade. I had to reduce the intensity because the phone wants to ramp up the intensity of the blue. This is close to what I see outside.

I haven't been wearing rings since the pandemic hit so it's refreshing to see what others are wearing.

Here is the story of and a picture of the one piece I have been wearing almost daily.

Growing up, our family had a statue of the laughing Buddha in our living room. My mom used to tell us to rub his stomach for luck and happiness. My father would join in saying he had his own stomach to rub and I would tell friends my dad was like the happy Buddha. The pandemic hit but I became fixated on getting a piece to remember my dad by. So I went to my jewelers, stated what I wanted and was out the door with the pendant - all under 5 minutes. (For perspective, I haven't even been in a grocery store since March :shock:)

It's only B Jade (I couldn't afford this size/color in A) but I love rubbing his belly and thinking of my dad.

Mahenge spinel ring today. Her nickname is “Boomz”

Needed the hand sanitizer in the background to get better color balance. Else my hand kept looking super gray in all the pics

Looks more neon under natural light

Stunning!!! I'm frozen :kiss2: the cold never bothered me anyway :D:lol:

Thank you! Hahaha you are right my 4 yo daughter did say that it’s like a “Let it Go ring” when she first saw it. My Disney Princess ring lol

@icy_jade Thant ring is absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you! I love the design at first sight (it’s a readymade setting from my usual jeweller). It gets lots of wear at year end for sure.

That’s a truly lovely gesture @lilmosun

Kathy has a range of Buddha pendants just putting here in case you decide that you want an A jade next time. Can ask them to do a TULAB (local lab) cert if you want to verify is not treated jade

I haven’t worn these in over a year, but it was a cold overcast wintery day, and I loved how you could see the facet pattern on my Mexican fire opal. It’s a hazy gem, so it’s hard to see sometimes. The other ring is my indicolite. Love the setting gallery. F5E6DBDE-35FF-4FE6-83B0-85F6C99ABBEB.jpeg 51878D09-93B6-4341-9CE2-322FDB145843.jpeg FA845DC4-7701-46E2-92CF-A69575EEF11E.jpeg

Whenever I'm hosting Zoom meetings lately, I have been busting out the colored gem rings (for fun? good luck?). Today we've got my pink spinel octagon halo and favorite blue sapphire rings :)

I love that color sapphire, it just glows from within. Very pretty.

Nice! I love the signet ring. Is that a blue stone in it? I don't think I have ever seen a signet ring with a colored stone before. How unique.

Thank you
Im a Sept baby so a tiny wee saphire
Mum and Dad gave it to me for Christmas when my sister was big enough to get one too (she is 5 years younger) her's is square (because dad wore a square signet ring) - that makes me think we must have gone with mum to try it on ??? i think from memory my sister's one has a tiny ruby although she was born in October

i wore mine a lot in high school and then not at all - but i found it the other day after it got misplaced in the move and ive had it on ever since (well ive taken it off to wash)

This today because of @elle_71125 lovely comments (and thank you! Same sentiments when I see your lovely rings really)

Snapped this while looking for greenery to take ring pics away from the restaurant (so that I don’t look like the crazy ring lady). Singapore has been having some lovely cooling weather (that’s 25 C so maybe that’s summer temp in other countries lol) and it’s nice to be out
