A. Lab grown 5-stone (2.5mm stones) huggie earrings, 14k rose gold, made by Ouros Jewels. Clasps are quite secure but easy to operate. Barely worn, I apparently prefer a smaller-diameter hoop. Here’s the Etsy listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/917655147/round-lab-grown-diamond-earrings-18-kt
B. Lab-grown alexandrite, 4.70ct, 10mm x 10mm, cut by Jason Brim. Synthetic chrysoberyl (not corundum), precision cut, with quite a fantastical color change. Completely clean, those are fingerprints. ;) Set in a sturdy 14k white gold Stuller setting, size 6.5.
C. Lab grown teeny-tiny-diamond delicate band (although, metal-wise, does not feel delicate, quite a solid and wearable ring!). Custom-made by Ouros Jewels, size 6.5.
D. 14k RG 4mm moissanite bezel ring, size 6.5. Made by Etsy seller Tamara McFarland. Solid, smooth, SO comfortable and easy to wear. Well-loved here, but I’ve switched to a plain band post-baby.
E. 0.37ct OEC diamond 5-stone platinum ring, size 8. Antique platinum ring (unmarked, acid-tested), 0.37ct K/L SI2 (est - sold to me as G/H SI1 so it's probably in there somewhere!) center stone, 4.48 x 4.46mm, likely from the 1920s-30s, flanked by 4 single-cut diamonds estimated at 0.11-0.13ct. Inclusions are clear and pretty hard to see, certainly not overt at normal viewing distance. Prongs are in great shape, and shank is thin but still has plenty of wear left in it!
F. James Allen 1.26ct G/SI2 (blue nuance) certified ideal cut round brilliant lab-created diamond ring. Loose stone here: https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut/1.26-carat-g-color-si2-clarity-ideal-cut-sku-9836548 - but, here’s the thing, I wanted the stone to look subtly blue and I wanted to see the inclusions. Darn it, the stone looks WHITE and I can barely even find those metallic inclusions with a loupe because they are so neatly aligned with the cut. I know it looks impressive from the video but ultimately… disappointingly eye-clean to me. Set in 14k white gold bezel, size 6.75. Only very lightly worn; turns out round brilliant cut isn’t my jam, either. It’s engraved “Grown under pressure” and was a gift from me to me (see, that’s why it was supposed to look lab-grown… symbolic, etc!!).
G. Petite white and irradiated-blue diamond band, set in 14k white gold, lightly worn, size 6.5.
