    I posted this in another thread I started (when I was considering having it made) but had to share again, because I am obsessed! I had a solitaire DBTY necklace for years and this .25 ct single stone that was once a set of earrings (lost one!) and had the idea to make a 3 stone DBTY necklace.

    Also had these earrings that sat in my jewelry box for years because I am just not that into pearls and have SO MANY... but really wanted a pair of "crawler" type earrings - so I had the pearl that used to dangle from the end taken off and now I have this gorgeous pair of bezel set diamond crawler earrings. So happy when I can re-purpose jewelry I already have!

    I bought a Spessie from Sukrita at Aureliagems and her jeweler is creating a Stuller inspired setting that I liked. I have never worked with her before but she seems very confident in her jeweler and PS members have given her great reviews. So I am excited about it.

    I have a bit of angst over an Ebay topaz ring I want to buy. It is only $350, yet something keeps me from pulling the trigger. I could probably scrap the gold for about $150 and the seller has great feedback and great return policy, so not sure why I am so hesitant.

    I just decided on a 1.01ct center diamond for a three stone right hand ring project. Thinking of this setting or something similar. Side stones will be approx. 25ct each.

    A few people asked for photos when the new sides were in situ on my 3 stone. There's really not a lot of appreciable difference in a photo, tho I have to say, if you have an eye for color, you *can* see the difference in real life. Just. Also - the higher clarity is a nice mind-clean thing for me.

    And here are my 'new' pearl drops; a remake of my previous pearl drops, with the smaller diamonds removed, and now attached to my larger diamond studs, which I never wore. The diamonds are K VS1 and VS2 respectively, 1.95ctw, one a custom cut BGD and one is a James Allen True Hearts. Beautiful, beautiful stones.

    And I LOVE the finished result! They were both just a *tad* insubstantial for me, but now this is exactly the sort of thing and the sort of proportions, I love. Earrings are each roughly 1" in total.

    And the model is my gorgeous god daughter, who would make a paper bag look good.

    Also - and sorry to be a thread hog, here! - somebody asked for a photo of my charm bracelet. It's not done yet - still 4 charms to go, but I'm getting there. When I have all the charms finally together, I'll remove the spring clasps and have the charms attached permanently so they sit a little higher. In the end, it will have 18 charms on it. Eleven will be custom made and unique. I've been going for a modern vibe on this. A lot of charms are somewhat twee or cutesy. I've been after a more streamlined, cleaner look. We'll see what the finished product brings!

    Love the bracelet @mrs-b - the pearls, yikes!!! So are the pearls detachable? Or are they fixed? Curious to know. Q

    Thanks Queenie! (...so long as that means 'yikes' in a good way!!)

    The pearls are currently detachable but I might have them permanently attached shortly; I'll never wear those diamonds without them, so I might as well.

    @mrs-b - Yes, Yikes is positive! I love pearls and you certainly have a way with your jewels, quite creative.

    Lovely pieces, @mrs-b . I like that your charm bracelet is very personalized to you.
    —-

    Got videos and photos of a new ring, and hope it will be in my hands Tuesday or Wednesday. If it’s a keeper then I will post it. Didn’t want to make a big to-do about it until I actually see it!
