I want to treat myself and buy a really nice gemstone, cocktail ring.

I don't want to get married again so I will never have an engagement ring again. But I really like gemstone rings and I want to buy a nice one to enjoy and then to give to my daughter one day. I really like morganite or sapphire but I am open to all gemstones.

Any ideas? Do any of you wear that kind of thing?

My friend has a stunning large Emerald ring.

Here’s my morganite. It’s about 5 carats. I bought it from a jeweller on Etsy. I also have a similar sizes amethyst. I love a rock - sadly the budget doesn’t stretch to diamonds that size!

I don't have one yet, but I've wanted one for years.

I have my eye on this smoky fellow.

Buffy hate to do this to you - but it's no longer available. Lovely though it is/was.

Yes, I know grin it (or a similar one) may yet come back into stock, and I can't justify the handsome little blighter any time soon anyway.

@HermioneWeasley I would love to see your amethyst! Did you buy that on Etsy too? I also love a rock, I’ve considered aquamarine in the past.

Beebumble2 Thu 03-Jun-21 07:31:28

This is my most recent, it’s supposed to be a Paraiba Tourmaline, but in fact is Diamonique. I don’t usually buy from QVC, but after a search for an Aquamarine, this popped up.
Considerably less than the Aquamarine I was going to buy and a deeper shade.
Apologies for my ageing hand - too much gardening!

Here you go

@HermioneWeasley those are both lovely.

HermioneWeasley Thu 03-Jun-21 21:43:26

Thanks @Wanttocry

I have a big emerald and diamond cocktail ring and a pear shaped ruby and diamond one...I'll post pics when I'm home. They are both so lovely but no one thinks they are real when looking at me!

sallievp Thu 03-Jun-21 21:45:30

And all your rings are beautiful! So good to see them 🙂

I've never heard the term cocktail ring before! Every day is a school day. I love these types of ring.

I'm eyeing up a Siberian amethyst the size of a 20p coin in a jewelers in Chichester at the moment - perhaps I should smile nicely at DH.

Iamthewombat Thu 03-Jun-21 22:02:00

That diamonique (aquamarine-ique?) ring looks great. Who knew? I will have a look at the QVC website now.

This is mine. The stone is pink but the light wasn't very good when I took the photo. It's from Uno de 50

WellTidy Thu 03-Jun-21 22:32:39

@HermioneWeasley I love it! Absolutely a rock!

@MrsHuntGeneNotJeremyObviously yours is really lovely too

@sallievp looking forward to seeing photos

I am loving this thread

@MrsHuntGeneNotJeremyObviously that’s beautiful- what’s the stone?
