Off-shoot from the thread about whether you would prefer one stunning piece or 10 nice pieces.

Pics would be great, however, it may not be advisable from a personal safety perspective, so please decide for yourselves.

These would be what I would consider as my big guns, in no particular order (all diamonds are earth-mined in this list):
  1. 1.19ct E VS1 EC in an air line/gap diamond halo in platinum
  2. 1.94ct G/H VS MRB in a bangle bracelet in platinum (the stone was gifted to me by my mum)
  3. 2.8+ct G/H VS 8-stone carré cut bracelet in platinum (the stones were gifted to me by my mum)
  4. 5cttw H/I SI2 bezel-set diamond tennis bracelet in 14K white gold
  5. Near 1.0cttw diamond studs G/H VS bezel-set in 14K white gold, worn with 1cttw diamond earring jackets (the diamond studs were gifted to me by my mum when I was about 13/14!)
  6. Ebel Beluga watch, MOP dial with diamond hourly markers
  7. Silver-white South Sea pearl necklace 12-14mm
  8. 1.6+ct heart-shaped Ruby in a diamond halo in platinum
  9. 9mm Rubellite from Jeff White in a diamond halo in 14K white gold
  10. 9mm concave cut Amethyst from Richard Homer with Swiss blue trillion Topaz sidestones cut by Doug Menadue in a bombé ring setting with diamonds
DK :))

Not much to show compared to some of the amazing pieces on this thread but this has served as my jewelry collection for most of 2021 staying at my mom's. The rest is at home or the bank. It has served me surprisingly well...a combination of practical every day, sentimental and color variations.

ETA after posting this I realize that I would probably put my 5 stone ring in there in place of the zircon earrings, but forgot about it momentarily!

Your collection is delicious ♥️ I love every piece you shared. :kiss2:

I especially love the ring with the light green stone. Is it a tourmaline?

I'm going to do my top 10 here - then whittle down to five for @missy's thread!

Above all others - obviously:

855571

And then.....

837996

And of course -

826646

Followed by this for sheer sentiment....

814905

And -

802108

Then, in some iteration every day....

765504

And these:

759715

Surprisingly, these:

837981

And because I wear them almost every day and they're the best thing I've ever had made....

716199

I always wear these together, so I'm counting them as one!

657901

But perhaps most precious of all, commemorating the love of my life:

674411

600103
