You are soooo sweet @MissGotRocks! My hands are dry and wrinkly 24/7 365 days a year! :lol:

I think you are judging them too harshly! Mine get that way too but lotion does seem to help. Problem is I am always in water so it only stays on when I put it on before I leave the house and leave it on. I honestly think you have nice hands!

It's here & it's DIVINE :kiss2: It's a little longer than stated but doesn't ride too far onto my palm, so won't be an issue. And despite having quite a thin chain, it's SO weighty. The gold is super rich & yellow. I thought my bangle was a lux yellow, but this has that proper deep buttery antique colouring. Perhaps now that I'm moving into a lovely old house, I shall collect more lovely old jewellery......

Looks really lovely on you. I like how unusual it is too!

These are my most recent baubles, received from DK just a few days before Christmas, both are ring size 7.5 in DK's 18kt antique gold

-- a three-stone with 2.29ct GIA OMC diamond (Alex Park), 1.17ct AGL unheated Ruby (bought on LT as red spinel lol) and 1.02ct AGL heat-only Sapphire (Gemfix) -- center cushion is 9x7mm and the two side ovals are 6x5mm.

-- an OEC Trilogy ring with GIA 1.2ct I-VS2 OEC (6.75-6.9mm) (Jewels by Whitney) and two GIA 5.5mm GIA H/I OECs (which I had on hand) -- center halo is 0.12ctw H/I-VS single-cuts provided by DK

super happy with both rings :appl:

@MissGotRocks Mine are also always in water..I can’t get anything to get moisture to stay in my hands. I also inherited my mom’s hands. They have been veiny and wrinkled since I was much younger. Whenever I take a photo I lather up with lotion before it gets sucked in and they turn to tissue paper again! :lol: Thank you for being the only person that has ever said I have nice hands!

I bought the lovely 1.20 M (faint brown) color VVS1 emerald cut that @Nikki1415 posted on LT.

I had just today gotten a Berricle emerald cut to try it out and when I showed it to DH he said “well we have an anniversary coming up so why don’t you find a real one”. Okay! Don’t have to ask me twice!

Such a lovely thread! I have been admiring all the photos.
I collected this on Christmas Eve. It is a GRS Muzo Green emerald (with appendix) emerald with diamonds, in 18 K white gold.

Wow!! :kiss2: What a gorgeous cab.

I’ve just had a quick stalk and it doesn’t seem to have its own thread? Would love to know more about this delicious juicy emerald, and also the setting please (are they alternating marquises?) :geek2:

I absolutely LOVE that top ring! The bottom one is beautiful too, but that first one is super eye catching & unique. Laughing about the ‘spinel’ too :lol-2:

Thanks, @Inked Haha, that is how I felt when I first saw it!

Thank you, @cushioncutnut, I feel the same.

Wow this is gorgeous
Thank you, @Christinak for liking it here and on the other thread!

@Pomelo Thank you. It doesn’t have its own thread. Yes, you are right - there are alternating marquises. The emerald is over 14 mm by 12 by 9. Since this is a “things we are considering” thread, I can share that I took a while to decide. I placed a deposit to reserve the ring. For the next few months, I bugged different people in the jewelllery industry to look at the specs and photos of the ring and tell me I what they thought. I asked several emerald dealers, including a highly respected one. So shameless of me! They all kindly shared their thoughts. Some frankly told me, “I don’t have one like that and if I could it would be …(a shocking amount). The well-known dealer asked if I wanted one with no oil and showed me a $1.5 million dollar ring. I asked Jewellers, e.g., Zsusanna of Landolf & Huber in Zurich. She was enthusiastic about the ring. Alexander Laut liked it and asked me to request to have the ring re-tested before buying. So I did, and it came back with the same results as in the older GRS cert. I usually do my homework, but not to this extent!

Why not?! :lol:
Cabs like that aren't common and the mounting isn't common either. That's a 'show me' if I ever saw one :love: We want to hear the whole story of it.
Story! Story! Story!

These 2 cuties are coming my way soon. As if I don't have enough bands but I love to stack them in different ways just like they are part of my wardrobe. One is a designer Jeff Cooper band and the other is an Etsy seller, DiaFinejewelry Screenshot_20230119-142910_Etsy.jpg

Holy gorgeous! There is no sun so these are all indoors but I can’t wait to see her in the sun. I admit that I was a little apprehensive buying an M faint brown but I am a fan.

Thank you @Nikki1415 for making this available. Also @stracci2000 for encouraging me to go for it.

Very pretty! I like the way it pairs with the ruby band, together they have a Deco feel which I love!

Thank you @RunningwithScissors, I actually have two square cut bands that scream deco, but for some reason this one looks better.

@ItsMainelyYou Thanks for your enthusiasm! Got the assignment. It is Chinese New Year Eve here in Singapore, so there are lots of parties and bling. I shall try to take a few more photos and then start the thread.
Happy Year of the Rabbit to any PSers here who are celebrating! Here is a scene from Chinatown Singapore .

I’m embarrassed to say I’ve been on an Etsy roll buying little stuff here and there. I purchased two solid gold 3mm bead bracelets..One is in yellow gold..The other one is in white gold. I bought a yellow gold baby bezel .20 diamond pendant..a princess cut diamond eternity band..and a mixed cut baguette and round chain bracelet..I think that’s it..for now. I better find my lost baguette band soon! It adds up! :lol-2:
