    I'd love to contribute to this thread but all my rings are at the bank at the moment. *sniff sniff* So old, random pictures will have to do for now - hope you understand!

    Wow, these are seriously stunning! I'm glad you finally posted here. :D Your spinel settings are unique, and I love the loopy underside gallery detail on your paraiba ring, which is, of course, a classic. Did David Klass do all of these? I'm wondering who designed the red spinel setting.

    Thank you so much, @voce. I really appreciate your kind words. :) Yes, David has done all of these rings. I enjoy working with him. I worked with Elle (from The Gemstone Project) on the red spinel ring (and several others). I brought my inspiration piece to her and we went from there. It was a long and fun process that was completely worth it.

    That paraiba ring is my dream! Nowhere close to it but I will get there. Congratulations on having such an amazing collection :)

    Awwww, @lovedogs! :D <hugs> I must say, three of my five rings are spinels, so which one in particular are you referring to? The red spinel?

    It means so much to hear a gem lover like you, @Rare gem lover, say such kind things. Thank you so much. I'm sure you will - just take your time and you'll find the right one! I've also found that the key is reaching out to vendors you know and trust so they know you're looking. That way they might let you know of something before they post it online. ;-)

    You know I love each and every one of your rings. Such gorgeous and saturated pieces! :love: That paraiba ring is, of course, my favorite but that red spinel ring is so fun and interesting to look at. I bet you stare at it all day while wearing it. :D

    You guys are making me blush with all your super kind comments. Thank you, @elle_71125. <hugs> I remember asking myself, upon starting that ring, is this what I really want to do with it? Cause it's different and not for everyone. And without hesitation I answered "yes!" :) That's when I knew I had to see my vision through...just like my paraiba ring with the double halo. I do stare at my rings when I wear them, sometimes even missing out on conversation/things around me. :twisted2:o_O:P2

    My five favourite rings:

    My sapphire e-ring was my first CS and so even though it’s one of those dark inky blues, it’ll always be beautiful to me.

    This thread has some breathtaking pieces, but this piece reminds me of one of my all time favorite rings, “The Rockefeller Sapphire” (another Burmese sapphire in an Art Deco ring). Your ring is a gorgeous Art Deco piece!

    It was hard for me to choose my fave 5, but here are the ones I've been reaching for the most recently:
    IMG_1643.jpg
    From left to right:
    1. Ceylon peacock blue cushion sapphire with tapered french cut side stones (my avatar photo)
    2. Paraiba tourmaline cab with diamond halo
    3. Oval reddish orange sapphire (so close to ruby red but not quite), unsure of origin
    4. Unheated, cornflower blue Ceylon sapphire with 0.82 ctw side stones
    4. Jade cab ring (from Grandma) - unsure of specs

    I’m usually over on RT and don’t have any CS myself (yet!) but I just wanted to say that all your rings are very beautiful and this was a really nice thread to read through! :kiss2:

    I have a pretty simple style and wasn’t sure how I would feel about the pink Mahenge spinel in the femine halo once it was set, but I love it! I’m glad I tried something outside of my comfort zone. I think it might even be my favorite ring right now =)2.
