I am new to the site but I wanted to share my most recent purchase. I have always wanted a colored stone, particularly a blue sapphire for the color and durability of the stone compared to other colored gems. I know enough about diamonds, but when it comes to colored gems, I always second guessed myself... until now! Bold, yet there's still something delicate about it... The fancy yellow diamonds on the side topped it off for me. :)

Sorry for the not so clear pics... Took all with my iPhone. Not the best lighting either...

GORGEOUS! :appl:

I agree with TL, we need a thread on this with lots of pics. The iPhone will take great pictures in good light, and I can't wait to see the sapphire in all it's glory! :love:

I really love that spinel in the sally setting- the rope details and touches of rose gold are amazing.

Just a few of my favorite unset stones :D There's only one stone in there destined for jewelry already. I wish the trillion and the oval in the middle were bigger :(

Here's some collages I put together of my spinel, tourmaline and miscellaneous garnet and other gem species. I have other rings, but I never wear them like I wear these. Sorry about all the pics. Some are precision cut, and some are not. Sometimes I wish I had better crafted rings, like WF or Leon, but then I would never be able to afford setting all these stones, and it's the stones I love.

Here's a small 6mm faceted Ethiopian opal I bought at a small gem show last October. I'm thinking of pairing it up with an indicolite. It's really beautiful, and more neon orange than I can capture in these horrible fuzzy photos. The stone will not cooperate, but it's very firey. It stood out in a tray full of such opals. It has a neon orange base color, and ever since I saw a similar, but huge opal, like this at a museum, I had to have one.

Everyone has such beautiful pieces. :appl: I have this 2.5 carat portuguese cut oval blue spinel, which has inclusions, but it has nice color. It's sitting on a yellow gold ring, just to show it off next to yellow gold, but unset. Wanted to post this because I love the shot.

I don't think i ever posted a photo of my 3 ct. bi colored sapphire. It's yellow and blue but in some angels you'll get a touch of green. Cyrus Shennum in Austin,TX set it in a 14 yg Stuller setting...I'd like to get it reset in the future. Any ideas?

Jackieclarkm ur sapphire ring is exquisite! Love that setting :love:

It's been awhile since I last posted some gem shots. Now I'm really excited about posting my recently acquired gem

First...

My color shift Lavender Spinel from Vietnam (it's 9.7x8.6x6.3mm) I bought it last month, first week of January from my trusted local dealer. It seriously needs a recut & repolishing ::) **notice the pink flash in some shots. too bad I wasn't able to include some photos taken under incandescent light to see its dramatic shift to pastel pink hue**

Second...

This is so far my favorite gem purchased and I bought it last december along with my indicolite as xmas gift to myself. It's my dream stone & now I finally own one. It's a 5.4ct Brazilian Imperial Topaz. Native cut & windowed but the color hides it. My photos don't give justice on how the golden orange/salmon/reddish colors blend together nicely. It even shifts to a more reddish color under incandescent light. I also encircled the healed-fracture/wisp veil inclusion near the girdle.
