I love rubies!
« on: December 16, 2012, 02:30:25 PM »
I cannot decide which of these two I like best.  I am seriously considering closing up my 2nd holes just so I can wear a pair like this.


R5008

or


R5010

They are both perfect for the holidays, don't you think?

Hm. Tough one. I prefer the em-cut (or anyway rectangular) rubies, but as a piece of jewellery the design works better with all rounds. So, the rounds it would be for me (or for Mrs. Coyote anyway)

It is a tough one for me as well.  Though considering I do have a new laptop I just got, I doubt I'll be in for either any time really soon.  But that said, it really did spark me to see how I'd feel w/o my 2nd holes just so I could get earrings like these.

I love rubies in an emerald cut, but the prong work on the rounds just hits it for me.  I really do love both for their own reasons.

Rubies are incredible stones- and really tough to find in this type of color and brilliance- at least in such a way that photos convey it.
I have seen really great looking "Pigeon Blood" stones in person that simply refused to photograph......

I must say you find some of the most beautiful rubies and sapphires (my two weaknesses in colored gemstones).  I really do wish my money tree were not so bare or I'd  get the rubies and those cute sapphires earrings that are similar to the round rubies as well.

I love my DBL ruby ring.

BTW, that IS dust there on the left side of the stone, it's not an inclusion.

DAF this ring has to be one of my all time favorites, you should match them with the Em cut halo.

DAF's and LOVECOLOR's rings are 2 of my favorites!   I am having a LOVECOLOR avatar style ring made, and hope to some day have a DAF ring!

Both ruby earrings are gorgeous, very hard to decide!

Sheryl, what are you using for the center stone for the ring?  I adore the look of both of those rings really. 

I am itching for a pair of rubies to wear almost every day.  I figure some day I will get them.  I officially closed up my 2nd holds too just so I can get a set like these - some day!  One hole is pretty much completely closed already (oddly I got scratched right over the open hole so as that cut healed the hole went away) the other is closing and about halfway closed up. 

Just need to get my first pair of halo earrings ;)

Sherylbuys, I'm so excited for you!  I have to tell you...I was a little "shy" about wearing my
daisy ring everyday...but that's what it has come to.  I love it more everyday...it's my flower that never dies... :party-smiley-052: 

Is your center stone going to be a yellow diamond too?   I can't wait to see it!  What's the ETA for it?

I haven't seen the center diamond in person.  David said it was gorgeous, and that was good enough for me! I can't wait to see it, too!!!
