    These stones arrived today and the quality is really good. I’d recommend the vendor, finestonespk on Instagram, if you’re looking for bargain and willing to take a bit of a gamble, check him out. He has some very pretty stones and is nice to work with. Shipping was crazy quick, like 4 days from Pakistan.

    We are about 1.5 hrs outside of LA now (used to live in Pasadena and love that area), with my little kiddos and their current ages, southern CA is my only option for a PS get together lol. I think they have done them in the past in LA, would be so fun. Or in Orange county or San Diego on the beach lol. Im originally from San Diego and my family is still there, LaJolla Shores and the Delmar beach will always be some of my favorite places on earth:)

    I don’t mind a bit! It is my HG tourmaline and I wore it for four days straight after picking it up :lol-2: I’ve been on the hunt for a statement tourmaline ring for about two years after a shady jeweler “lost” a 22ct dark forest green tourmaline ring that was in for polishing. This one tops it in Every. Single. Way.

    Feeling boasted by how well my 1st pre-owned eBay purchase worked out (18k gold & diamond bar bracetlet on page 6), I just made another pre-owned purchase on eBay. And it's coming all the way from Japan! Finger crossed this will be a good purchase too.

    Platinum & diamond flower necklace with adjustable chain :)

    I was scrolling through Instagram at 4AM unable to fall asleep and saw this ring. I had to have it. I know absolutely nothing about chrysoprase, but it just looked so juicy. As luck would have it, it’s already my size. Needless to say, it’s on the way.

    I saw it too on Instagram as I couldn’t sleep at dawn. I didn’t realize that sleepless nights are part of being pregnant.

    I love that stone. Looking forward for handshots. Congrats on such great buy.

    I've been thinking of this Tiffany Paper Flower ring in rose gold. They brought it in for me and I saw it today, I just want to sleep on it. It's for a special occasion - I got a new job and moving to San Diego. I just can't decide whether to get it here before I go, or wait to buy it there. I want it now :kiss2:

    I am having 3 rings made in the coming months, first a Mahenge Spinel, then an oval blue Zircon, then an Asscher Amethyst.

    In the next two/three months I should be receiving a ruby in a buttercup and a sapphire in a cluster.
    Last two rings and I am done.
    I need to be satisfied with what I have.

    Both sound gorgeous!!!!! I am especially excited to see the ruby in the buttercup.
    Which metals did you choose for each? Is the buttercup an antique or antique repro?

    The buttercup is a existing modern design from the vendor, but no not an antique reproduction. I love the antique ones too tho! 18k yellow.
    The cluster is mixed metals.

    I bought these rubellite earrings to tide me over until a super-special project is done. ;)2

    I picked up this 1/4 ct princess cut band yesterday to pair with my oval. I was considering the 1/2 ct version but this one was the perfect amount of sparkle for me.

    I’m sending my black opal to get set with my little emerald. And also pulled the trigger on an 8mm Asscher to have as an alt ering. Woot.

    Pretty! Report back on how it goes from that seller. I've seen many tempting listings from Japan and I'm always a bit wary, but the prices and pieces seem lovely!

    I’m replacing the cz center and resizing it so I can wear it. I’m excited to have a step cut.

    Kind of the same...I bought stones for a pair of earring charms to be made and I'll have those done, but I really need to not buy anything for the rest of the year. I sold a bunch of small things to fund two larger rings and just need to not buy anything else for at least the rest of the year, if not longer.

    The remaining projects you have in the works sound fun though!
