Re: What Do You Wear More Often-Colored Stone Rings or Penda

I wear both, sometimes together sometimes separate. I love my rings but I couldn't live without a few good pendants. I wear gemstone studs often too.

Sapphire Setting advice

Hi everyone! I'm going to get my Montana sapphire set. I brought it to my jeweler weeks ago with some diamond melee because I think I want a halo and plain shank.

Re: Catch all thread - talk or better yet show us

Bump! Anyone got any projects? I have diamond studs in the works, but those aren't colored stones. I have the setting for my Mahenge hot pink in planning stages too, but that won't manifest for a few months at least. I'm having my Montana sapphire set. I dropped it off at my jeweler the other day. ...

Re: Colored stone possibilities for my sis?!?

So, I am looking for gems that will give a nice, saturated emerald green or ruby red color that will hold up well for daily wear and not break the bank.. Without a budget in mind, I can't pick out stones for you, but perhaps a tsav garnet would be a good choice for a green stone or a red spinel for...

Re: Rio Grande findings.........

Yes I have bought their settings. I bought a pair of earring mounts from them and my jeweler used them for me. I also bought a pendant mounting for another stone but haven't gotten around to using it yet.

Re: help me find 3-3.5mm stones!

I know of an Ebay store that sells lots of calibrated small stones. The stock varies. I've purchased lots of small stones from them and been happy.

If you decide you'd like a round then maybe this one. I've purchased from this seller.

I hear this a lot. I may be one of the few oval fans. I mean it's not that I like them more than other cuts but I do like them. I'll pretty much go for anything except the long skinny cut with pointed ends. What's it called? Marquise! Ha ha , yes that's it! I don't know why I couldn't remember it. ...
