I guess I’m a little fascinated with rings. I just think more than any other piece of jewellery they tend to be the most sentimental (based on the reasons they’re usually given) or the piece of jewellery most likely to be given as a heirloom, so people’s collections usually results in this really eclectic mix of pretty rings and a great story behind each.
So please post pics of your ring collections – hand shots, jewellery pics, stock images, whatever. If you have a sweet story behind it, please share also. Thank you!
P.S. I don’t really have a big collection of rings. Only like 3 or so but I’m slowly building and will post when I have some more. 🙂

I only own two rings–My e-ring and wedding band!
Though my wedding band was made FOR my great grandmother BY my great grandfather, who was a jewler!

I don’t have any of mine with me, except my WB and Ering. But here’s what mine look like:
(my garnet which is my kids’ and DH’s birthstone)
I have my emerald (gift from an ex-bfs grandmother whom I adored–it was hers. Doesn’t look quite like this–no diamonds on the band, but very close)
My ruby (lab-created, but it’s pretty)
My blue sapphire (first piece of jewelry I bought myself, along with matching earrings and pendant)
My pink sapphire (promise ring from DH)
And my WR and Ering

This is my collection of fine jewelry pieces. From left to right, my wedding set, a set I purchased for a steal on ebay but have just sold, my anniversary band from my hubby, a silver ring with a white sapphire centre and black diamonds, and a family heirloom sapphire and diamond ring. All are 14k white gold except for the last two which are sterling silver and 10k yellow gold.

Thanks for the replies all. You all are lucky to have beautiful rings.
@btothez: That emerald ring is great. Did the ex-bf ever ask you back for it?
@lavenderstone: I really like that white sapphire & black diamond ring. The contrast is striking.
@BrandNewBride: you may only have two rings but those are the two most important ones, even more so with the sentimental connection behind your wedding band. 😉

What a fun thread! Before I was engaged, my skull rings competed for my ring finger!

So far I have my engagement ring and wedding band:
And Darling Husband just recently bought me a ring for my birthday. I haven’t gotten it yet (on order through a local jewelery store) but it is a white gold channel set diamond band that I plan on stacking with a rose gold one and yellow gold one when I have babies. Here is the stock picture of the band:
And this is what the stack should look similar to I have all three:

@Mammy: That is a lot of history and sentiment on your hands lady. And that pearl is huuuugee. Also, based on the timeline, i’m guessing that’s a natural ruby. What an absolute treasure to have.
@barbie86: Oooh, I like. So many shinies. That citrine, white topaz ring is great. Looks little a little flower.
@GeekChic: I like that idea. Amazona ctually has a three-ring tri-color gold set with diamonds for like 280 or soemthing. It’s a really good deal.
@JessMorgan777: That eternity ring is so unique. I’ve never seen those combination of stones. Also, just wanted to add that while I had my doubts about your reset, it has turned out beautifully. I really didn’t think it would work but it looks gorgeous.
@kidseahawk: Hahaha…skull rings. The one with the little skulls is too cute. I also really like those flat bar pendants with the initial.
@wrkbrk: I love that bezel set heart ring. I usually do not like heart-shaped anything but the bezel highlights ithe outline beautifully. Starla’s is also great.

@Arshim: Thank you so much! The eturnity band is iolite and amethyst. I use it as my stand in sometimes. You are not the only one who had doubts on the reset! Lol! But I am so glad I did it! Thanks!!

@Arshim: Thank you! The initials necklace I found on Etsy – those are the initials of my wonderful dogs, Simone and Claire 🙂

@Arshim: Thank you!!! Bezels are seriously my new thing. I LOVE them! I think it adds a tiny bit of grit to the heart shape! 🙂
