    Beautiful rings. These are amazing ‘modern classics’. Which jeweller created your rings?

    I actually really like that little three stone with the dark green center. Tsavorite? :love:

    Just to be clear I would put the head onto a White Gold shank that would blend with the color of the current setting. I really like the oxidized look of the silver and the stones.

    I know it's cheating to put 6, but I couldn't help it! It's almost impossible to get all 6 to look good in 1 pic, but I tried my best.

    @voce from left to right (pics on the white background):

    The gem silica is set by Ivy and Rose, the electric blue topaz (cut by Doug Menaude) was set by Sally at Heart of Water. The orange is a Spess garnet purchased from Jason Brim, recut by Dan Stair and set by an Etsy vendor in rose gold. The 5 stone is aussie sapphires sourced and set by Michael Edgett of Gemshoppe. I wish the center stone was brighter, but I couldn't afford it and Michael did an outstanding job. The light blue topaz was cut by Doug Menaude and set by another etsy vendor in silver. The cut is INCREDIBLE, and the ring is a great fit. The last one is a sunstone iolite from The Gem Trader, set by Alistair Kelsey. One of my favorites, and the schiller is incredible in the right light/angle.

    Actually *whispers* it’s just created Emerald & CZ, it was the first ring my husband gave me when we were dating and like 20 years old... I don’t wear it anymore but keep it coz it’s sentimental! :kiss2:

    @voce
    Sorry about posting more than 3 rings but this was the only nice pic I had on my phone... :shifty: I’ll try to get some decent hand shots soon.

    Thanks so much, that means a lot coming from you! Your ring collection is my dream. :love:
    My collection is a bit of a mix but the moonstone and zircon were both made by a local jeweller in my home town.

    Reds get de-saturated when I upload a pic but these are probably my prettiest CS rings.

    Thank you @Acinom :). From memory:

    Ring finger- 1.41 Burma red Spinel with 1 carat diamond sides. 1.47 Mahenge Spinel with either .75 or 1 carat diamond melee.

    2nd finger- 3+carat Chrysoberyl with diamond sidestones. 3.99 carat Raspberry Spinel with .20 carat diamond accents.

    Index finger- Old stock Mahenge Spinel (PS members helped me pick this one- I think it is around 1.5 carats) with diamond melee. 1.89 carat Burma red spinel with diamond accents.

    Such gorgeousness in this thread! I only have an amethyst RHR that I bought while on a cruise in the Virgin Islands. I actually love the amethyst, but I am not a huge fan of the setting anymore. I would like to add green and deep red gems to my collection in the next couple of years! This thread gives me lots of inspiration!

    @Seaglow : OMG that purple diamond! I drool over the ones posted on DBL and always wondered if I ever managed to afford one, how would I set it? Now I have an idea!

    I love that electric blue topaz ring. The color is mesmerizing and I could tell right away that it was a Sally HOW ring. Her pieces are so detailed yet delicate :love:

    My gemstone hobby/obsession only started in April 2018, so I only have 10-12 rings total, some of which are fashion rings from years and years back; my prettiest are the top 5 pictured.
    I'll describe them in the order they appear in the picture, top to bottom, but I have not decided on a hierarchy of favoritism. My favorite ring is in the middle, and it's special because it's the engagement ring that started off my gemstone collecting.
    1. 1ct 5.6mm round teal blue unheated Kenyan sapphire from Precision Gem, set by myself into a semi-mount I got from LT
    2. pearl Pandora ring...yeah, sad it's decorated with CZ, but it was part of the first box of jewelry my DF got me when we first started dating in 2016
    3. 1.14ct oval unheated Tanzanian ruby in a diamond halo
    4. 5.82mm sphene and 1.3mm demantoid garnet sunflower ring custom made for me by Cecile Raley Designs
    5. 1.38ct pear unheated Thai sapphire in a solitaire setting
    IMG_0070.JPG IMG_0081.JPG IMG_0073.JPG
    Because the first picture didn't do the blue sapphires justice, I am including additional hand shots of them.
    Edit: I will have more rings coming from Yvonne, in a month or so, and I expect they will replace some of the rings in my top 5.

    I love that sphene & demantoid ring sooooooo much! How often do you wear it & how is the sphene holding up for wear & tear?

    I've only had the sphene & demantoid ring for 5 weeks, and I wear it about once a week, so I haven't noticed any wear or tear on it. Sometimes viewed from the side there are streaks of a different color, and even if I get paranoid that I scratched the sphene, on closer inspection it's just dispersion/fire with no cracks or scratches. That said, I do try to be careful when reaching into my purse when I have this ring on.

    Aquamarine and diamond
    Sapphire and diamond
    Grey spinel and sapphire sides

    Your rings are beautiful! You may only have five but they are five very stunning rings. How do you like your gray spinel? I have been contemplating buying one but I haven't pulled the trigger. The malaya garnet is gorgeous! How big is the center stone? And the setting for the topaz, wow! Is that a concave cut?

    They are all beautiful but the grey spinel and pink sapphire ring grabs my attention by being unexpected and interesting. I really like it!

    Thanks @peacechick and @suzanne2!

    I wore the grey spinel today (more pics below!) it was sourced and designed through Elle at the gemstone project. I love that it’s just a little bit different!

    The Malaya garnet is 2.91ct, approx 9.1mm x 7.6mm, it has a bit of a colour shift which keeps it interesting!

    Good eye with the topaz! Yes it’s a concave cut from Richard homer with a custom design by Carla Maxine (Australian designer), it’s a bit more of a dinner/cocktail ring!

    Oh that aqua is blowing my mind. I have something similar in the works with a Tourmaline. I’d love some hand shots whenever you get the time!
