I love your gorgeous collection AOTC!!

My favorites are the 2 solitaires on your ring finger & middle finger with the wide bands. Those are so pretty......but they all are!!

You have long, gorgeous fingernails too! I wish I could grow mine like that! Mine are little stubs.....but I can type 90 MPH!

thanks amy,
i used to have several marquise diamonds too, one about 1/2 ct and the other .65, i gave one each to my two sisters inlaws. i had my granmothers original diamond and gave it to my niece. ive not had any spectacular rings, but all have had a story.

i have a lotof southwest origin rings, i love my zuni stuff. ive traveled to arizona and those parts so many times and have picked up a lot of really nice stuff over the years. funny, ive not had any of that out for several years. ill have to dig some of it up.

i still love looking at jewelry and diamonds, but strangely i dont feel compelled to aquire any more lately. i guess its been a year of change and it takes time to get back in the swing...


now you knwo why i dont type very well.... haha

Ohhhhhh, you're so kind & generous to give some of your diamonds to your S.I.L.'s & niece. I bet they truly treasure them! They are special diamonds from a very special person!

What, Southwest stuff?!?!?!? Please Please Please post some pics! I go crazy over Native American jewelry! I'm even more passionate about that than diamonds (shhhhh, don't tell anybody here)! Haha!

I can totally understand why.....this year has been rough for you & your hubby.

You two make a beautiful couple!!! I'm sure your love for eachother has grown even stronger, with everything's that happened this year.

And your long, thick hair is gorgeous too!!!

Amy

Nice rings AOTC ! What's the story on the ring on your thumb....looks like the center stone is the "lite" version.

yep so light we cant even see it. this is the ring i need a center stone for. it has two authentic alexandrites in it. they are a nice greeen and change to a pale violet blue. the one has a little balck inclusion but the stone is so small you dont notice it so much.

sooo... do you have any reccommendatons... i was thinking about a rich blue saphire, it would look rich with the alex stones i think. i had thought of moissanite but dont really want another clear stone ring. i have a rather nice ruby (in the ring right behind the empty one) and dont really want another. if you have some ideas let me know. the ring itself is rather oldish, but pretty though.

here is a lousy colored , blurry pic but it shows the ring style a bit better,

Sure I've got recommendations ! It all depends on the size of that space and how much moola you want to put into it. Really blaster, intense blue sapphire will also blast a big hole in your purse. If you like unusual stones and something that kind of complement the color of the alex's, then I'd recommend a teal colored sapphire. I think they are a very nice color, but since they have a green component, they can be had at far lower prices than pure electric blues, for instance. Tourmalines have some great colors as well, the fine windex blues being outrageously priced while deeper blues, teals and greens are even lower in price than the teal sapphires. What size of stone would that setting need ?

michael e

it had a round stone about 7mm in it, although it was originally made for an oval i think. the basket under the prongs is oval. what say we make this a fun project and let the board help me decide what YOU can put in ther for me? why dont you suggest some stones in that size with corresponding prices. perhaps everyone here could help me decide.

i would love a fabulous blue saphire, but really we are still buying machinery for the business so i cant spend tons of money, but lets see a range of what you suggest and we can go from there....

scanned pics and flash pic show the violet color, the violet is halogen bulb, the reddish is the scanner picture , i am going to try ad get a flourecent light pic that shows the green...it mostly looks green in everyday situations..

O.K. AOTC,
Let's start off with a stone from Pala Gems that I think would fit. This is the high end at close to $6000, 2.28 carats. It would be hard to find a better blue color, (or a higher price...but I'm sure I could if you'd like ) This gives us a starting point anyway. What do you think of this color ?

uhmmm... welll.... hmmm,

i think it is to big for the ring... i mean it has to be huge? (not to mention ahhh, expensive)

actually i need a 7 x5 stone it looks like, oh yea, and one i can afford...

how'bout i send the ring and you decide... what color of stone do you think would look good michael_e? the color it mostly looks is the greenish blue like the pic above. i never see it those other colors as they are visible only with a very strong light source like camera flash or scanner light.

That stone isn't really much bigger than what you're looking for, well at least not in physical size. You're looking at a stone that would weigh around 1.5 carats...maybe a little smaller. If you want a more affordable sapphire then you're looking at less intense colors, or much more intense colors bordering on being too dark. My problem is that most of the stones that I have are rough stones and so it's impossible to give anyone a clear idea of their color. I can guess, but it's still very hard to describe. I've got a couple roughs that would cut some neat medium teal colors which you might find attractive. I also buy cut stones from a number of suppliers, some of which are very reasonable in price. I've attached a picture of one that's about 7+mm x 6+mm. Nice medium blue and about $700. I'll dig around tomorrow and see if I can find anything sitting around in the safe that might work better. By all means, send the ring, even if the sapphire colors and price don't suit you, I've got some really neat tourmalines which might just fit your tastes perfectly.

Both those sapphires are GORGEOUS! The 1st one is positively ELECTRIC! I love the 2nd one too. Amazing color & sparkle!!

Sounds like this will be a fun project.

Here's a couple more that I had out in the safe. The lighter colored one is 6.8mm x 5.7mm and the cushion is just to give an idea of what the darker teal color looks like. I think that I've got a few teals in roughs that would cut more medium tones. All of these sorts of sapphires would run between $300 and $400 for the size needed here. Below that and you're looking at very pale or white sapphires or synthetics. The tourmalines would cut great colors as would some of the spinels, but I just can't get adequate pictures of roughs, since the colors just don't look like they would, once cut.

oh my, i like the teal one, its beautiful, the prices sound fair.

i hadnt better spend too much more than 3-4 hundred right now. i have to buy a new dell, and mike is looking at a used (certified pre owned) lexus suv right now... we have always been so frugal and conservative, since mikes near death experience he has a new found sense of just enjoying the things we are blessed with...

how about i send the ring, you can get a first hand look at it and make suggestions based on what will look the best and keep in budget. it is so hard to get an authentic picture of the alex stones. who knows maybe blues and teals would look stupid, i am open to other colors depending on how it looks.

send me a pm and give me the address where to send. ill package it up and send it UPS from work tomorrow. this will be fun.

I think that with his new found attitude, Mike should just forget the Lexus and get a Harley...and one of those baseball caps with the built-in ponytail. Really go for the gusto ! Probably hard to drive in the snow though, so maybe the Harley can wait 'til spring. I'll send you a P.M. in a little while, I've got to go pick up the , "BOSS"... Kaiden, the three year old king of the world, is now officially in pre-school and I'm his chariot driver.

well, mike is not a harley type, (not to mention his defibrillator could be affected by the close proximity to spark plug firing) heck he is not supposed to operate a chain saw or weedwacker for the same reason. he may go for the fake hair...his is really getting thin.. haha

no, really, neither of us have ever been the types to give one crap about the car we drive. we buy them used and pay cash then drive them till the wheels fall off. actually this lexus is used but quite nice and our practical side tells us that its worth a few extra dollars for a relaible used vehicle ,and well, its so nice looking and really nice inside. heck , michael_e we have yet to own a vehicle that has one of those keyring door unlockers!!! it will be a fun thing for mike and i. it may be a little indulgant, but hey life is rather short so i say go for it.

i have to get to work, ill be looking for a pm from you.

hey can you fill us in on your 3 year old king? how has that all been going? i watch the 4-monkeys as i call them, my nieces and nephews. they are in school and preschool now except for the baby. i just love having yougins around. they do have a way of exposing our age related lack of energy!!! post some pics if you would... here is one of mine
