Haha!  Hello!  I’m WifeyPrice and I too have a ring addiction.  LOL.  I don’t see a problem here! LOL!   I keep my eyes open for stones that I don’t have that I can wear as RHRs or a stand in E-Rings.  My eyes are currently looking for sapphires and emeralds.

I am joining the ring addiction club! My husband said NO MORE RINGS to do something different on my next project so I’m already thinking about a diamond bangle that I saw on Jewels by Grace! Your ring is lovely and DBL is freaking awesome. I’m working on a ring right now that was inspired by one of her rings.

The stone is beautiful! I have a serious jewelry problem, too. Fortunately for Fiance my eyes are bigger than my budget. Otherwise I’d live in the doghouse.

lavenderstone :  I don’t have a ton of rings, just ering and wedding band but thanks to my DH I’ve learnt so much about diamonds. I intend to increase my collection over the years. A 4 or 5 stone oec diamond band rhr would be my next dream ring.

I love rings too 🙂 I almost NEVER wore any rings before I was married (I did not even have an engagement ring as I was not interested in wearing one really!) but I realized after I was married that I love them. I went through a few wedding rings/sets over the years, most of which I have since sold (my original wedding ring though is tucked away in a safe place, I don’t wear it much as I don’t find it comfortable enough, but I do wear it on occasion still).

I have however “tapered down” my obsession in the last few months after getting a “dream ring” (or two!), and as mentioned sold many of my rings, so that now I only have about three rings I wear on the regular. I still like to look a lot at rings and potential buys, but I don’t feel so inclined to own all the rings anymore.  Eventually I’d like to add some more colored gemstone rings again.

My husband also does not care what ring I wear (or even if I wear one). We both feel rings can be worn to symbolize a commitment, they are not THE commitment – wearing a different ring, or none at all, does not mean we aren’t committed 🙂 He can’t even wear his wedding ring (which he loves and is quite fancy actually!) most of the time due to his job, he is no less married 🙂

Anyway, here are my “regulars”:

My dream ring – an Edwardian-era, antique cushion with a chunky OEC halo, in platinum. The profile is almost my favourite part:

 

 

My main RHR – an asymmetrical art deco dinner ring (elongated marquise with french cut halo and OEC sidestones, in platinum) – I know it definitely not to everyone’s taste (and some would think it was over the top and gaudy, I am sure!), but I love it. Photos really do not do it justice, it is a sparkler and sooo comfortable and easy to wear (very low profile). Sometimes I flip it over to my left ring finger if I want something very low profile for whatever reason:

 

This is also primarily a RHR – H & A moissanite (4H Silicon Carbide), 3tcw, 18k yellow gold. It was an insurance replacement, and I am so pleased with it! I also wore it as on my left ring finger recently for a couple of weeks recently while my other rings were at jewelers getting new appraisals and resizing, and so it could become my alternate when I am traveling or doing things where I don’t necessarily want my diamond rings on or with me – they are insured but they are also antiques so not easy to replace especially to that detail 🙂

lavenderstone :  Hi ~ I’m a fellow addict! As I write this, my 8.5 mm Forever Brilliant moissanite is en route to Los Angeles to be reset in this new 3 mm palladium ring that I purchased from American Set Co:

Sorry about the size of the photo. I tried to scale it down, but without success.

I’ve also had a 7.5 mm moissanite set in tulip prongs similar to yours, a few years ago. It would be nice to be satisfied with just ONE ring, but that has yet to happen. Oh well, I suppose it’s better than being addicted to something a lot worse . . . like heroin. LOL

At this point in my life, I figure that I may as well do whatever pleases me, as long as no one is getting hurt . . . And no one has. I’ve never spent beyond my means, do not fund my addiction on credit, and do know my limitations. Thank goodness for at least that!

*puts hand up* 

I too have a ring addiction Bee. You aren’t alone.

Everytime I design/ buy a new ring I say it is the last. Hubby and I both know that is an all out lie now. Ha!

It is a hobby. Hobbies cost money but provide joy. I dont’ see the issue, ENJOY!

RayKay :  I die over that chunky halo ring every single time. Swoon. Who was the Etsy seller? I’d love to stalk them to see if something similar ever pops up again. Love that marquise one too, especially with the French cuts in the halo.
