I am going to over load you with pictures!!! I hope you don't mind.
Right hand ring 8mm BTD custom cut lemon yellow OMC sapphire and two unenhanced 5mm OEC moissanites set in a three stone ring from Poppyseed. David Klass set both rings and I requested claw prongs and he did a great job. Love it!
E-ring 8mm OEC unenhanced moissanite set in another setting from Poppyseed with gorgeous double claw prongs made by David Klass. This stone has SO much fire and is gorgeous! Most of the time it is a nice vanilla/egg shell color. In some of these pictures it shows it being whiter then it actually is. I would call it an L for color grading. It puts off lots of beautiful pastel colors. Just love it so much.
The ring the e-ring is paired with is my great grandmother's antique diamond band that David also sized for me. This is the first time I have been able to wear it because it was sized to a 4 before and I am a 7.
I have to say I do love them all but my favorite is the 8mm OEC solitaire. It's amazing. Truly, it looks just like an antique diamond that has a nice cut. It has great depth and I can't get over the pastel colors it throws off!
I love both of them!! I love the sapphire, the color is just gorgeous!! The size of the stones in the 3 stone are perfect! Perfect finger coverage. I have to admit, that the unenhanced moissy has my heart though! I love the simplicity of the setting and the double claw prongs are compliment the stone so nicely.
ETA: I forgot to mention that I also love your tattoos!! Your sleeve looks awesome! Is it traditional? The rose sort of looks like that style. Traditional is my fave!
Wishing, thanks! I wish I could capture the yellow sapphire better. Its prettier in person.
That part of my arm is more traditional. Its a light pink sewing machine with some other things, though the whole thing isn't quite finished yet. The roses are grey shaded..the only grey shaded on my whole body actually!
I always tell everyone that I love hearts and I just realized that I have four different heart tattoos! LOL The red one on my arm that you can see in the picture, the zombie style broken heart being sewn back together on my left elbow, one on my inside of my wrist on my left arm for my hubby and he has the same one, and my chest piece is a big sugar skull madame butterfly with a upside heart shaped nose..she has eye lashes too.
They are all simply lovely!! I like the solitaire with your grandmother's ring the best, but all are beautiful! I hope your flower OMC ring will still get some attention. That is one of my favorites on here.
Little_Bit Firstly, thank you! I tend to rotate rings most days. I am sure that ring will still be worn, as I do love it too! I might replace the asha OMC with a diamond at some point, but I do love the asha OMC in there as well.
Hadley, LOL..I will be selling a lot of the rings that I have right now though. I am only going to keep what I super duper love and wear all the time and the rest are going up on DB. The ring I am making is going to be fab. I don't know for certain yet that I will do the halo in pinks, but I want to. It all depends on what I can get that fits in my budget. This is my inspiration ring but it will have the center diamond with an elongated antique cushion 1.25ct set east/west and then smaller ACCs on the sides like this.
How many people looked at you funny for doing this in the Target store? I love it. Target is one of the best. I've found that I enjoy Home Depot one notch better.
A friend got her first Moissanite a couple months ago. The first time she went to Target in it, she called me from the store to tell me about it... as if I didn't already know.
Last year my dad had back surgery and the elevator of the hospital wing he was in was like nothing I'd ever seen in my decade-plus of wearing Moissanite. I don't want him to have surgery again, but I admit that in the back of my mind I've thought that if he does, I'm bringing my camera for that elevator. I am a terrible daughter!!!
Ha! I was waiting for my decaf latte from the Starbucks inside of Target and was trying to be really discrete about it but there was one lady sitting down at a table that was giving me a bit of a strange look, wondering why I was moving my hand around like that. haha
Lorrissey, totally true!! Now, you live close by me. Do people ever ask you about your rings? People never ask me about mine! It seems like in this area of the world, people find it rude to ask and ogle your rings. Its kind of weird. Like I will notice someone's ring and want to ask them about it but I stop myself because it feels weird to me.
You know the only people who ask me about my rings are jewelers while I'm browsing.
I constantly stop other women to tell them how much I love their ring. I don't grab their hand or anything or ask any details. If I'm compelled to say anything, it's just something like "holy crap, your ring is amazing. you're a lucky lady." Sometimes they respond with the details or where/how they got it, but I definitely never ask those type of questions.
Most of the time they're eager and excited to tell me all about it.
Sorry ladies but I am obsessed!!! LOL I took some more outdoor pictures with indirect lighting today and a new video! I paired the OEC with my light pink diamond eternity band alone and love the look of it.
*eww ewww ewwwwwww...I just noticed that in the first few pictures there is someone's random hair stuck to my claw prongs!!! Its not mine, as mine is not black.
Ginger, I'm a newbie who is looking for an antique cut stone, and WOW, your rings are gorgeous!! Would you say you prefer the OEC moissy over the Asha OMC in terms of performance? I was debating between those two (not even sure I could get my hands on an Asha OMC right now) but the moissy would be more expensive, so I want to be sure. Your pics are incredible, and have possibly convinced me that the moissanite is the way to go. I also love the pink band, btw! Would you mind sharing info on that as well?
Rowen, Gosh...the OMC sparkles closer to a diamond. The OEC has more sparkle and fire. I guess it just depends on what you are after. I love the color of the OEC. I still love the color of OMC, but the OEC more. I like that moissanite is a gemstone and more durable over time. The sparkle is just incredible on the OEC. You can get an OMC Asha from Jewels By Erica Grace. They sell them and that is where I got mine.
Bethany, maybe Vanilla Sparkle Fire...lol it sounds like something my 5yr old dd would come up with.
Thanks so much Ginger for your honest opinions. I think I would like the OEC more, as well. I'm a sucker for the pastel colors and fire. Your pictures of that stone really impressed me. Thanks so much for the link to the pink diamond band as well. You are a sweetheart!
I don't even think mine is faint pink. LOL I have it between my D diamond and my F/G bezel eternity...and it's holding it's own pretty good. LOL I might just order another one to "see" if it's the same I'll return one or both. i do like it though. super sparkly
In yours, I actually SEE the blush. but this one is pretty white. it's obvious in low light b/c it's SUPER sparkly and WHITE! lol I'll think about it. I can't afford to get the bezel made in pink gold AND pink diamonds...
Yours does look more pink Ginger. It is light, but you can see pink. Essaince's really looks white in the pics. To my eyes anyway. Even setting white melee into rose gold generally makes the melee look pink in some lighting.
This ring for example is white melee...but looks pink
and here it looks white, especially in the basket
So you should really see pink in all lighting...or you may as well just pay for white stones because they will look pink "sometimes" too.

yes...and you know what? this pink gold is pretty friggin' pink.lol so i'm baffled that the diamonds are so white. but this ring is seriously SOOOOOO sparkly. considering the price, i'm wondering if i just want to keep it anyway. the diamonds seem to be good color/quality/cut- if i believe that they are white. LOL
these are really nice. lol they are super white and SUUUPER sparkly and they are TEENY tiny little things too. I'll call my jeweler tomorrow. if she gives me a discount i'll just get a the bezel made in rose gold. haha
