tagerosan: A Young Ruby! Oh how cool! I just love gemstones that are unique and that you don’t see a lot of. I’ve seen stones with a similar shade before (my mother used to make jewlery and had a lot of loose stones), but I’ve never seen one that’s long and so polished like yours! That’s truly something special!
Nicolettekds: Beautiful ring! I love that it’s a modern setting with a special stone. Thanks for sharing!
lolot: beautiful ring! I had to look for a hot second to see if it was a reset! I looooove her story as well. I adore women like her, she sounds strong, capable, and feminine during a time women had the world on their shoulders <3

heputaringonit: It’s not threadjacking at all! I am half chinese, so I’m not 100% sure of the history but I think that it’s because Jade was like the diamond of china based on what was available geologically. It was hard, durable, and craftable so it was very important as a high quality enduring medium for art and culture. During certain times too this may have had a spiritual component, that I know nothing about. I believe it was very common and precious during all dynasties as well. Today it’s everywhere really only for chinese folks that I see. I have jade jewlery that was passed down to me from my grandmother, and my mother and sister wore jade and gold polished heart jewlery daily. That’s the best I know but you inspire me to research more in the future!

I have my maternal grandmother’s wedding set now that my mom passed down to me on my wedding day. It’s an illusion, box-style setting from 1941. I have no idea of the total carat weight or any specs, but I assume they’re well cut diamonds because the rings are super sparkly! I wore them on my right hand for my recent wedding.
