    Ruby bracelet with diamonds. Had to shorten so had earrings made with two of the links.

    So it's Saturday night and as I have no life, I have been thoroughly enjoying reading this thread from 2016 into the present.
    I have oohed and aahed and burst out laughing. I am so happy to see everyone's gem collections and very impressed with perlas' knowledge about gems!
    I also have other jewelry besides pearls and I'm not a great photographer, but I'd like to share with you a few of my more treasured pieces.

    These 2 rings are special as they are family heirlooms. The first ring is Edwardian and is from my maternal grandmother's family from Czechoslovakia. It reminds me of a court jester's shoes with the pom pom pointy tips. These are all old mine cut diamonds on a platinum hand made base that was then soldered onto a 14k yellow gold shank .

    The next ring is an art deco semi- bombe ring, platinum, also set with a large center old mine diamond, 0.9 carats, K color and surrounded by additional rose cut and round cut diamonds and rectangular sapphires. I have lost 2 sapphires, needs to be repaired when I find the time.

    I wanted to share two of my grails. Both were things mentioned in books I read years ago and put myself on the hunt for in real life. I thought this was a weird habit of mine until I found a site full of people dying for a replica of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s engagement ring, which at least existed even thought we don’t know what it looked like.

    First up, thats to a third grade reading of Nancy Drew and the Mystery of the Ivory Charm, an elephant carved of woolly mammoth ivory that I had custom made by a native Alaskan because years of searching never yielded an antique ivory or bone elephant:

    I just adore him!

    Next, thanks to a high school reading of Anne Rice’s Witching Hour was a version of the Mayfair emerald. Every tiny emerald I own is thanks to this book and after 20+ years it finally occured to me other stones are green. Here is a gigantic green tourmaline set in low carat gold and my old long hair lol

    This is the size I imagined the pendant, but I imagined the setting to be more gold wire cantelinne (spelling wrong) work.

    aerinha, I do that to. I have an antique (fake)silver/plated teaset inspired by one of my favorite books, "New mercies" by Sandra Dallas. Also one of my vintage akoyastrands with a bowclasp, same book. I get quiltideas from books as well, and ideas for gardening. How fun, I didn't know others did that as well. Ha thoughts on that pendant as well, have read almost all of Anne Rice books. Got several cameos after reading "Blackwood farm", another favorite.

    Love the big green tourmaline. The little elephant is a treasure as well.

    This was my Christmas present from hubby this year. A black drusy onyx pendant from T Lee in Minneapolis with tiny black diamonds and a .15 ct white diamond.
