    Came across this and was wondering.

    7FF449BE-ADC6-4AC2-9CAE-D0971DF506F2.jpeg F348AC67-FA9D-4BAE-97A8-7E339E5F8F6E.jpeg 21D63433-271D-4813-B34B-0B234A72D04B.jpeg B3A78AA3-6D1B-4A32-AD5C-D5B0DB34B5B0.jpeg 567795E9-F41D-49FB-A3FD-A8874B11FDF1.jpeg

    That’s diamonds with garnet. Am thinking it could be quite uncomfortable to wear...

    I also saw a frog recently... shall look for that as well...

    A bear, maybe. A panther, definitely.

    I would totally wear it. In fact, I have this cat ring sitting in my Etsy favorites...

    I’m still thinking about the panda but can share the frog link if you are keen. It’s a preloved piece about USD1.6k with these specs:
    K18WG
    [weight] 15.7 g
    Ring size: Number Fourteen (that’s Japan size so should be about US size 7)
    Design width: 22.8mm
    Ring ventral width: 4.0mm
    Design height: 17.2mm
    moonstone / garnet / diamond / pink sapphire

    Do you have any loupetroop post for me to contact you?

    Heck Yeah, especially if it was for a fundraiser for the WWF (World Wildlife Fund).

    Ok so we have 75% yes and 25% no so far.

    I’m rather on the fence as I’m not sure I’ll wear the ring often once the novelty wears off... or it’s a so cute it will always spark joy piece.

    I love that panda ring! Do you mind sharing where you saw it and whether it's still for sale?

    Ok, the % of no is going up to 41% now.

    I’m still considering but certainly happy to share if I decide not to go for it.

    oh I love this SO much! What a beautiful piece of artwork...look at the panda's sweet face, and the attention to detail with the perfect bamboo stalks made out of green stones ( tsavorites? emeralds? not sure). Whoever did this is a genius.

    Grab it!

    Ack I shouldn't. Just spent $$ on the fossilized opal. But thanks for the info, and I love the moonstones in it!

    Animal jewelry seems quite the craze these days, and pandas are so popular, not to mention they’re the symbol for one of the largest animal charities, “The World Wildlife Fund.”

    I can see that being popular, despite the fact it might be an uncomfortable ring. That being said, some animal jewelry is amazingly beautiful, and some can look awful. I remember there was an octopus craze at one point in jewelry. Oh the horrors of what some of these pieces looked like. Sea creatures are the most difficult to get “right!”

    If only it were set in titanium instead of heavy gold! Then it wouldn't be burdensome to wear at all. Something so heavy, I'd rather have it as a pendant.
