@Bron357 has started a great thread:
https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/your-most-favourite-5-pieces.240590/

I have not posted in @bron357’s thread myself as it is so difficult to make a choice. So... inspired by bron’s thread, I thought it would be fun to create a thread for your 5 most pretty CS rings. Not your most emotional pieces perse but actually your most pretty pieces.

Looking forward to see your posts everyone! Please include your stories and background of the pieces as well.

Here are mine in random order:
1. My vintage sapphire ring that I found in a dark local jewelry store. I found the stone after my search for a ruby ring did not work out. I could not afford the very pretty ruby ring I had found and decided to search for a sapphire instead. Love at first sight and I realised how difficult it is to buy a sapphire based on photo’s alone.
2. My Jeff Davies Asscher zircon in a Victor Canera multi sided pave halo ring. My second VC ring (the first was my OEC). I love the Asscher cut and I was so happy to find this beautiful teal zircon. I knew how I wanted to set the stone when I saw the pics. Blues and greens are my favourites and I have a huge love for zircons.
3. My Paraiba stone and setting by Leon Mege with french cut sides. I was mesmerized by Paraiba pieces I had seen on PS and was so happy to do this project. It was so weird to see the ring for the first time because of the weird color and glow!
4. My Precision Gem tourmaline in VC setting. Heavily inspired by PSer @SparkliesLuver who did a rough to cut stone project with the same rough! PS really sharpened my eye for great cuts and saturated colors.
5. Bespoke Gems Electric Blue topaz in VC Emily setting. I love love love all blues which makes it so difficult to only choose 5. Also a rough to cut stone project. I had a natural topaz cut around the same time which was really fun as several PSers had stones cut from the same mother stone. Mesmerizing blue.
I have many more favourite rings. I guess I have chosen these because they are in the blue/green color range, their saturation and cut.

I'll have to do some careful thinking to post my favourites but @Acinom I love that you picked so many of the "softer" stones like your zircon and tourmaline! I love them too and it gives me confidence that other PSers are wearing and rocking softer stones!

I’m so glad you started this thread! Here are my 5 prettiest CS rings (in my opinion, of course). :mrgreen2:

45DFE1BF-E479-4230-81B5-7DFFF7C1D5FD.jpeg

1. My paraiba ring with a pink spinel halo in a David Klass setting. Nothing beats a paraiba in my book. That beautiful glowing Caribbean water vibe. :kiss2: I adore the contrast between the pink and the turquoise. I wear this one a lot!

2. My newest David Klass creation is also one of my prettiest. A bright green tsavorite in a unique floral halo. The green just pops in person and is a real stand out in my collection.

3. Teal tourmaline ring by David Klass. I love the color of this tourmaline. The perfect mix of blue and green. It was one of my first purchases and I had David set it in almost a full carat of diamonds. It’s gorgeously blingy.

4. My Mahenge spinel ring from CvB Inspired Designs. The Sienna solitaire is just perfection. It’s so light and delicate but with so many small details. Plus, it has that 3ct mahenge going for it. :kiss2:

5. My David Klass paraiba ring. This is truly a work of art. Just a lot of glowy goodness. I am crazy about this ring and I’m so grateful to @SparkliesLuver for giving her permission to use the design.

@leslie1956 : that is a huge compliment. Thank you!!! Looking forward to see your selection of 5.

@diamondsareagirls : wow, what a huge and beautiful rock!!! Thank you for sharing such a special story. It must be very special to wear such a ring.

@mellowyellowgirl : I am so curious to see which 5 you will pick. I indeed love softer stones and till sofar I have managed to keep them in pristine condition.

@elle_71125 : as you know I am a huge fan of your entire collection. But I agree these are your statement pieces. You have such a great eye for creating the right setting for each of your stones. Gorgeous selection!

OMG STUNNING @Acinom!
Simply stunning!

Do you find it just glows? I was kinda wary about tourmalines (dunno why, maybe I distrusted the lower RI) but mine just glows sometimes!

1. Sapphire
2. Rubellite tourmaline
3. Sugarloaf paraiba
4. Green blue tourmaline (tri wire setting).
5. Probably the aqua (that is very pretty) but I then again I really love the spess garnet and the yellow one (cant spell it :whistle:) on you

That tourmaline ring is one of my all time favorites @Acinom. Well, all of your rings are my favorite but you get the idea. Oh, and that paraiba ring is a dream come to life. Pure perfection. Dibs on that ring (which is undoubtedly out of my price range but had to be said anyway.. you know you love me). :mrgreen2:

@Catmom I love your top 5. That ruby thing is one of my favorites thanks to the gorgeously unique setting and that glow! :kiss2:

@Gemobsessed love your top 5. That green tourmaline is so gorgeous! :D

DCB8F8F8-5B5B-4C25-A00F-CA0E69E33F06.jpeg Love this time of year, when the sun actually comes out! I still haven’t set some of my favourite stones, but I think these are my current top 5 rings.

Mahenge spinel set by my hubby, spess garnet from Prima in a copy of miraclesrule’s ring, heated Burmese ruby ring, violet sapphire and emerald both from Gene in settings by DK (one designed by Elle at TGP, one by me).

I’ve only got one! :cry2: Still looking for my birthday RHR but it will be self financed as DF has taken a “gap year” and not got another job yet. :roll2:
So post it! You don't have to have 5 in order to participate. I'd love to see it.
