I'm currently doing a bunch of projects with DKJ.

1. Remaking my wedding ring. It's been polished so many times, it's become thinner than I like and bit 'sharp', so I'm combining it with another ring my husband gave me some years ago, and remaking it thicker and wider.

2. An eternity in platinum. This will be roughly 4.3ctw - 16 x .27ct diamonds, all E color and VS clarity, ideal specs.

3. A solid yellow gold heart, which will be a birthday gift from some friends. Very plain, but nicely curvy. Not too large - roughly 16.5mm in each direction.

4. AT LAST - a Gloria Floria with a blue sapphire center. Platinum.

5. A new gypsy ring - in 18kt yellow with a .8ct K SI1 AVR. (Gorgeous little diamond!)

6. Lastly, I'm also working with DKJ on a 5 stone ring for a good friend of mine to give his wife - my best girlfriend. 1.6ctw of ideal cut H colored VS stones in a platinum head with yellow gold shank.

Looking forward to this showering of self indulgence some time in the next 4-8 weeks!

::)


Wow… 4-8 weeks for all of that… mighty fast. Looking forward to seeing the results.

I saw that AVR for sale and am glad someone got it.


I made an impulse purchase of 2 earth-mined rosecut diamonds from Alex Park a few months back. I know I am a little late to the rosecut party, but I have become obsessed with them and their subtle sparkle. I always have loved champagne and fancy brown diamonds that have a pinkish hue. After much thought on how to best showcase these beauties, I finally have a direction.

The M color diamond is becoming a pendant. It will be the center with a floral inspired design surrounding it. I found an antique ring design during my search that I kept coming back to that I just love. We are using this as inspiration for the pendant design.

The fancy brown diamond will be a ring I wear on my right hand middle finger. I love the idea of a gypsy ring but a little concerned the high dome rose cut might get hit when I am wearing it. Any suggestions are welcomed!

I am working with Amy at David Klass. She doesn’t know about the ring project just yet….I want to have a better idea of direction first.

I need a pick-me-up before heading towards ban island. I might finally pull the trigger on this ring that I've been eyeing for over half a year. I'm a May baby and the seashell with a little oec on the shank is calling my name.

I adore this! Any idea who made it? Would you mind sharing where from?

Thank you so much! You are so kind. Will definitely post pictures once it is done. I have asked to see the rubies ahead of time to be sure I like the color and clarity so it might take awhile!

One day, I hope to shamelessly mostly copy you. If you get picks share them, I love looking at rubies.

I shared previously that I was waiting for a ruby and amethyst ring that was my Mother’s Day present. It’s a mother’s ring because it has my birthstone and both kids birthstones.

Posted this in vintage/antique but I know not everyone frequents that forum so figured I would update here as well with pictures:

Beautiful. Love the colors and detail. Perfect for Mother’s Day with the matching birthstones. I love jewelry like that and it makes it even more meaningful. Meant to be yours. Enjoy!

I had been looking at a pair of earrings I posted here and they sold apparently right before I paid for them. So then I was looking at EBay and found this ring.

Oh, that’s right! I even suggested a ring and a necklace. I love the ring though - it looks great on your hand!

I’ve been wanting a nice watch for awhile now. I officially have the green light from the husband but I’ve been having trouble deciding on dials (found 2 vintage Rolex’s that I love). Last night DK sent me glamour shots of my finished sapphire ring!!! Im soooo excited but thinking I should spread out the excitement between watch and ring. I also don’t want to miss out on my perfect watch though. I’m so fortunate to be having this issue.

Edit: apparently my husband pulled the trigger on my watch earlier today. So sapphire ring and new watch arriving this week!!!!! Officially on a self imposed ban until Christmas (will possibly make a small exception for my little garnet pendant lol).

Went to my favourite antique jeweller and I collected my aquamarine, rhodolite & diamond enhancer.

Extremely tempted to purchase a pair of blue sheen moonstone earrings in solid 18k rose gold for ~570 USD, does this sound like a fair price? Not very familiar with the moonstone pricing but it looks gorgeous!

Moonstone weight: ~5.2 carats
Moonstone clarity: Excellent
Dimensions: 10.5x7.8mm

This is so beautiful and you don’t see craftsmanship and details like this all that often.

Thanks and yes so true, this is why I love old stuff, you just can’t beat the craftsmanship.
