I finally found my ruby ring!!!!! I have been looking for a while for an unheated Burmese ruby that would make me feel excited, and I finally found it!

Indoor daylight:

The glow is unmatched!!! And the color is so yummy in real life, more red than in the pictures. It's a very small ruby- 5mm x 4mm, but so glowy! Plus I am in love with the setting, it's an antique ring from the 1940s!

I have a tiny heart shaped diamond and am having a little charm/pendant made for my daughter, similar to this one.

Here is the stone and cert. I thought it might be too small for the project, but Amy at DK says its a good size for it, so I'm going forward. It will be engraved on the back with her dogs name and the date that she rescued her. I think my daughter will love it.

I love this idea! I’m a foster fail collector of dogs. I must look into this - it’s a meaningful jewelry piece.

I'm not a foster fail, but an adopter of a rescue and volunteer for the rescue group that placed my guy with me. So rescue runs in the family and our dogs are part of our family, so that's why I think she will love it. It's her first dog living on her own and not home with me.

I just wanted to say that I haven't fostered, but have rescued. However it happens, saving these pups from their prior circumstances is heartwarming. And thank you for helping.

I’m sure she’ll love it! I wear my paw pendant all the time. Best use of heart shaped gems in my opinion haha.

I also have the extra small trinity but wanted something more substantial. This is actually the 7 ring model!

I went to check on a ring that my sister wanted - and ended up buying something for myself… have you had a similar experience ? :loopy:
I snapped it up because I have always wanted a ring with two types of phenomenal stones. The Tsavorites were a bonus.

I just ordered this little pair of spinels. Hopefully, they'll go with my dark purple garnet, somehow.
