Imitation of a lovely thing…dievca desires

Oscar Wilde —
‘Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.’

dievca wants to be That Lady.
The lovely one on the train in Copenhagen.
The one who looks like she has it together.
The one who has personality.

In particular, dievca is in lust over her ring:

Isn’t it lovely?
So dievca started on a quest to recreate the ring. she contacted the Dark Gem Dom to see if he could identify what type of stone was in the Lady’s ring. And if he could help dievca buy a stone. The Gem Dom made some excellent suggestions for purchasing a rough stone and, as an accomplished gemcutter, He made time to facet the stone for dievca.

The Pavilion

The completed stone,

With the apartment move, dievca’s Parents having challenges and Life in general, the gorgeous gem was set to the side — but dievca has  been collecting gold. 14K earrings that lost a mate, 14K broken bracelets and chains – whatever she can find in 14K yellow gold from her jewelry box and friends. she’s getting to the point where she has enough to send the gem, the gold and the photo to a jewelery maker friend. Woo Whooo!

A huge “Thank You” to the Dark Gem Dom for the help and the beautiful work.
If you want to connect with Him, send dievca a note. She’ll work on it. XO

      The hand with the ring? That’s the Lady on the train. She is older than me, maybe 15-20 years. Nice manicure right? My messy thumb is on the gem in the box. Short nails without nail polish unless its a special occasion. 😁
