Re: question about a red Tanzania Spinel

really love the color, and if it was the right size and price within the parameters I set for myself I would buy it.

I've purchased gemstones before that was probably more expensive than others of similar color, but I set a budget - the size, shape and cut was what I wanted, so I bought it.

Re: Please post your emerald eternity bands

Although emerald is a hard enough gem like not prone to scratching. I would worry more about them cracking/breaking for a full eternity because of their inherent nature with cleavage plane.

Re: at what size would you switch to a CS

I sure could go 3 or 4 carat in step cuts in a reddish spinel with a couple of color modifiers plus I'm not too keen on just one color in my gems, and welcome modifiers one to lessen the cost, and two because its interesting to me to see the changes of colors. I appreciate the CS forum and thank you...

Re: Cup/ Foil Yellow Diamond Question

No- I think the OP wants to put a yellow gold cup under a yellow diamond to enhance color. It is not called foiling. I really don't know if it's possible to do on a setting you already have or not. I suppose it would depend on the setting. As far as cleaning- I don't like a totally enclosed cup- I ...
