I have bought quite a few stones over the last year or so, but my few attempts at photographing them have fallen short to say the least. :errrr:

I am thinking of setting my 3.18 chrysoberyl first and thought I would ask my PS friends if they think this stone is "set" worthy and if so, suggestions on the setting. The pictures of this stone are pretty disappointing. It isn't the strongly vivid stone I would like to find one day (don't we all :love: ) but the picture shows a brown/gray that I never see in real life.

I don't own any rings with a halo so I am leaning in that direction, in either 18k YG or green gold. Which do you think would compliment the stone?
I have to try to get some profile shots of this stone, it has a nice high crown which you can't see in this picture.


Thanks for looking!
