Getting addicted to my bangles. A lot more convenient than rings when it comes to washing hands and putting on lotion. Thanks to @Burmesedaze for letting me have them! I'm waiting on some sandalwood bracelets to separate the jade ones, so for right now I'm wearing a Fitbit between them.
Wow!!!!! What stone is this and what’s the story on the ring?!
It's a YAG that's supposed to mimic the color of paraiba. I got it from Finewater Gems and love the color and cut. I think this is the round cousin of mine: https://www.finewatergems.com/store/p750/3.61ctParaibaYAG.html
I was looking for an emerald but somehow stumbled on the YAG and thought why not. Sent it to David Klass and he sourced the lab diamonds that go with it. I wanted something big and blingy (hah, my husband believes I have the gaudiest of taste). Of course while it was with DK, I may have stumbled on the emerald I just got, and a few other goodies including a marquis paraiba from desert rose. And the lab emerald on Finewater's site is looking mighty tempting.
I’ve also been tempted by Gary’s lab emeralds. The cut on my green tourmaline is so perfect that I was considering one of his others! The lab emeralds though - on one hand I love them on the other hand wondered if it would look too “perfect” thus not real.
And your ring isn’t gaudy at all!
Stunning! Do you ever worry about bracelets running into eachother could damage eachother?
It's rainy, gloomy, my OA is acting up. But I feel like celebrating since the COVID restrictions have been lifted in my state. I don't think I have worn these red spinels for a very, very long time.
