I was all set to purchase a Leen Heyne ring by the end of the year, and now I think it will be much too wide for my fussy self after buying a tester ring. :(( I guess I will have to admire in pictures...

I am contemplating buying these, as I have been wanting a RG pair of earrings for daily wear. Waiting to hear how shipping to the USA works.

Feel the need to show this off somewhere! 7 ct tennis bracelet from IDJ. Stones are 0.167 points each and total length is 6.75 inches. It’s my 5th anniversary gift from my husband!!

Gorgeous! Happy Anniversary indeed! Go big or go home!!

i was going to get the top one, but I have concerns about the width. My hands swell a lot depending on weather, so I think the wide band will be pretty uncomfortable for me bc I’m so finicky about the sensation of jewelry

The other thing..because his rings are tension set, resizing is really out of the question for most styles

…I love they way they look SO much, but am nervous about practical limitations! I’m so sad :(

So thankful to my husband who always supports my jewelry purchases small and big except when he thinks something is just not worth it, he calls it out!
here is a pair of ruby bangles set in high karat gold / they are hand crafted and therefore have some imperfections in the setting if you look closely there are some uneven parts but I actually like that, I feel it makes it special. We usually budget for one big jewelry purchase in a year while any pieces I pick up in between are more affordable and usually for everyday wear. So this is it for this year/ I’ll consider it an early Christmas gift! E17EDB9E-CFA6-4741-9456-5FC30B47FDAF.jpeg 48DBA244-EF4F-4F3B-A617-B04A80FD1479.jpeg

on one hand have i learnt nothing here ?
on the other it was only $129. i saw it in the window on the way to my step daughter's funeral :(2
i had just had to buy new shoes
and a shirt (i had dribbled breakfast down it on the way to the funeral so had to rush into the mall for a clean one) and had spent a heafty amount at the florist
i havn't bought hardly any bling in the last 3 years
im not a red person but this little bangle spoke to me
plus it actually fit

naturally it was very red under the mall lights
but here in my lounge its actually a nice red
but when i photograph it, it goes very brown 20211028_185327_004.jpg 20211028_194327.jpg

Screenshot from the video of the finished LGD earrings that Vijay sent to me, which should be with me by mid November 2021. The Marquise stones are 4.5mm in length each, so the overall size of the earrings is likely to be around 10mm. Can't wait to receive them!

That's so pretty @Daisys and Diamonds! I love garnets, and it's my mother's birthstone. Sending hugs, you've had a rough time of it lately.

I'm very sorry for your loss.

Your new band is lovely. I'm a lover of red so it really speaks to me. I can also especially envision it worn during the holidays.

I fell in love with a sweet little emerald cut three stone that was "off the rack" so to speak at a local jeweler. I don't know why it spoke to me but I'm just in love with it. It is 1.21ct G/VVS2 with .60ct each sides. IMG_0432.jpg

The right emerald cut tends to do that. :)

I thought of that! But I know I'd never wear it, given that I already have all the bangles I'd ever wear. A pendant could be nice....
A pendant would be perfect because it’s a somewhat soft stone. It would be a beautiful pendant!

I adore these bracelets! May I ask where you got them?

Hi @diamondyes we acquired the bracelets at a Bonhams auction. They didn't provide any details on the maker, but there is the same maker's mark stamped on the clasp of both bracelets.

I couldn't find anything on "MQ" hopefully you'll have better luck. =)2

The garnet bracelet is 3/8" longer than the peridot, so it would appear they were designed to be worn together.
