@lilacwire: Ooh I love yours!

My ring itself is not that unique (from Gabriel & Co), although I’ve seen surprisingly few rings like this in the real world.  The unique thing with mine is the custom band made to sit flush with the twist band of the e-ring.  I’ll also wear the band on its own, which is very unique.  I really like simple, non-decorative jewelry, but I didn’t want a standard solitaire, so this was perfect.

@coffee-bean: Garnet twins! Though mine’s a rhodolite, not a regular deep red garnet. I looove your ring.

@mshoagie: Your ring is just breathtaking! 

@MaybeeBecca: I love the tradition of the cladaugh and its timeless symbolic value. Gorgeous.

@linguo42: I’ve seen your ring a time or two here and there and I have to say I’ve always admired it. It is a truly beautiful and unique setting, and green is one of my favorite colors.

@Mrs Grape: Thank you, and I have to say your ring is awesome. I love that your band is custom made, and the whole set really looks like it belongs together. I’m having quite a time designing my band to “go” with my ring, so I really appreciate that in your set. It’s just lovely! I think the rhodolite garnet looks just perfect with the white gold (or platinum) setting.

@Mrs Grape and @coffee-bean: you ladies have beautiful rings, two of my favorites (but garnet is my birthstone so maybe I’m a little biased;)! No but they are beautiful! I was considering a garnet ering but I’ve always heard that garnets aren’t exactly durable.  Do you ever worry about damaging it (not you so much @coffee-bean because it’s protected by the bezel setting)?

@TessaDL:  I try to be careful and take off my ring when I exercise with weights, etc. (Most) garnets are very affordable, so if the stone does get damaged, it can be replaced. For my ring, it is difficult to reset a bezel setting, but I am studying to be a metalsmith so one day I’ll be able to do it myself if the need arises. 

With that said, although sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds are quite a bit stronger than garnets, I’ve known women who have strached and chipped all of these stones (myself included). So the risk is there with any piece of jewelry that is going to be worn.

Yea, that’s a good point.  Even diamonds can be damaged.

@Mrs Grape: It’s a yellow sapphire with a double halo of yellow sapphires and diamonds.

@TessaDL: I don’t really worry too much–before I had the wedding band, one of our cats would occasionally get his claw stuck under the setting and actually popped the ring out! Now, though, it’s pretty well-protected. I don’t have any visible scratches or anything on the stone itself, because garnet is actually pretty sturdy. If something were to happen to this stone (the first one got chipped when the jeweler was tightening the setting after the Cat Incident), it’s not a big deal–it wouldn’t be difficult or expensive to replace.

@coffee-bean: Thank you! I totally love the bezel setting on yours; you don’t see a ton of those, and yours is very unique. My rings are 10k white gold and I’ve only had the engagement ring replated once (when I had the band soldered to it). Having a band custom-made isn’t that expensive, and it was a lot easier than trying to find something that would work with the setting (as it comes out quite a bit on either side of the band).

@YSQueen: Thanks for getting back to me on that. 🙂 It’s lovely! I’m very fond of yellow stones.

@Mrs Grape: Thank you for the info! I am already married so I have my ring already.  Maybe I’ll get a garnet RHR and switch it to my left hand on occasion.  Wink

 

You ladies all have beautiful, unique rings! I have a more traditional ring (moissanite solitaire with pave side stones).  I love it but I love to switch it up with different bands, which is unique to me.  I’m currently on the hunt for peridot (my husbands birthstone) garnet (my birthstone) and sapphire (my sons birthstone) eternity bands to stack with it.  Anyone know where I can find inexpensive (but not cheaply made ones)?.  I’ll probably end up getting synthetic ones because I don’t have the money to spend on real ones right now…
