Lovely stuff to keep our spirits up! Holly C what sparkly fun for your ears! Polyhex what a good idea to wear the brooch on your arm so you can see it! I will have to try it!
I’m new to the colored stone party — picked this up because I loved the stones and might repurpose them but it’s fun to wear too. Victorian, teal sapphire, rubies and small old mine cuts. I love the color of the sapphire.
= packs a classy punch
= life's too short to not enjoy
= Zest for living!
Today I'm wearing my 7+ ct malaia garnet while I contemplate how to reset her. I can't capture how pretty she is now because she just blends in with my skin. I'm thinking rose gold halo? Would love to hear opinions.
Beautiful ring, icy_jade! I love the halo, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one quite like it! Does this beauty have a thread?
Wow, I need to visit your local jeweler someday! You have such a beautiful collection, but this just might be my favorite piece of yours. It truly glows.
@PriscaSinclair i went to pick up my paraiba ring today and looked at rubies at my jeweller. He has a loose 1.53ct, 7.7x6x3.5mm (locally certified as vivid red, unheated) for <2k so I took some photos.
Some pics included just for gratuitous viewing haha. @T L @mellowyellowgirl @voce
The stone has a window which I think will be minimized upon setting... not sure if you can tell but the loose ruby in the temp ring holder is more crystal while mine is more silky...
With another unheated 2ct pinkish red ruby set in pendant.
My ruby glowed at me again heh
Two orangey mahenge spinels
Cute aquamarine earrings. Like them despite windows but really too sweet/girlish for me.
