    Various gems I’m debating on setting

    Can you only set one? Since you seem to have so many settings, you just have to pay the setter? Maybe you can start a poll where people can select X choices, where X is the number you can afford to set now.

    Various gems I’m debating on setting

    Do you have a yellow gold setting? Do you wear yellow gold? I'd vote for sphene or sphalerite, but those are too soft to set in anything other than yellow gold, and I'd trust only the most skilled setters to do so, which is why I've only bought sphene from CRD, because their setters actually...

    I got the zircon!

    The fact that you can say rubies next to pad, means your collection is not very humble! I'm surprised you can keep collecting without setting something. I'm stopping all my collecting at this point to set my gems.

    New emerald from Yvonne

    This was definitely a bigger emerald than the one she listed.

    Big, glowy and included tsavorite... To buy or not?

    I can't believe you went for a second big tsavorite. Congrats! It's beautiful.:appl: Although not all screens will show glow from your pictures, I believe what people consider "glowy" or "neon" is really subject to personal perception, since two individuals looking at the same stone will see...

    I got the zircon!

    My personal choice would be to set it in her tourbillion ring setting. It'll look even more gorgeous against some contrasting stones, say green emeralds in the setting. Congrats!

    New emerald from Yvonne

    The setting is quite lovely! I love the engraving on the sides. Can't wait to see the emerald set in it.

    @leslie1956 thank you for the compliment. I wasn't expecting the engraving, and the large Lily gives a lot of finger coverage. @Stone Hunter thank you. At this point I have too many rings to wear any one regularly except for my ruby engagement ring. I keep most of my rings in a safe location...

    Gia report pic

    Just gotta say, this color shifter looks too pink for my taste in artificial lighting, but boy does it glow in the fourth picture down! :kiss2:

    Oh, thank you! Coming from someone who has an excellent collection himself, it means a lot to me and makes me blush.:oops2:

    It's another sapphire, unheated, Ceylon origin IIRC. I am sending it to Yvonne for setting soon.

    Thank you, I love the engraving too. I'm glad this color combo worked out well! Thank you, T L ! That means a lot to me. =)2 I love the color of my demantoids. However, they are not currently available in Yvonne's Etsy shop now. She described the ones I bought out (7 in total) back in Jan/Feb...

    I'm thrilled with my new ring from CRD. Purple sapphire, blue zircon and green demantoid! My camera isn't able to pick up how it glitters, but oh my goodness does this ring glitter!

    Poll: white gold or rose gold for pinkish red+lavender color combo?

    Thanks for your input, Sibsgirl, but though I like the spinels in yellow gold, I am certainly not looking to deepen the sapphire. I adore lavender with red, and I already have a ring where the lavender darkened to a darker purple. I'm hoping this sapphire will stay lighter toned with the setting...

    What are you wearing today?! Show me your CS!

    Still wearing tourmalines! The indicolite and sapphires on the right out me in a somber mood, but the paraiba immediately made me feel light-hearted/happy. =)2

    Poll: white gold or rose gold for pinkish red+lavender color combo?

    Instead of showing you dirty coins, here are the stones against actual 14k RG and WG rings. Does this change anyone's opinion? About the sapphire, it used to be part of a pair. Yvonne sold one of the pair to another customer, and I sent a message asking about the other stone of the pair. It's...

    Which phone you would recommend for most color accurate pics?

    Going to test Sony Xperia in stores later this week. The old Sony Xperia phones blew iPhones out of the water back in the day. Haven't owned an Xperia since I started my gemstone hobby, though, so I will need to bring some hard-to-photo gems (ruby, emerald) with me when I go in for testing...

    Poll: white gold or rose gold for pinkish red+lavender color combo?

    Hi PS, I need help making a decision again. I'm thinking of setting these red spinels around this unheated purple sapphire. Planning on mailing out the gems Thursday. Please give your input and help me? :pray:

    Daniel M-Aqua w/Halo Ring Design

    How exciting :mrgreen2: seeing the CADs means that you'll probably get the ring in a couple of weeks. I decided to hold off on my honey zircon project, but otherwise I'm using my 1.5mm orange spinels with a greenish paraiba and blue sapphires in a project I'm doing with Yvonne.

    Indocolite potential gem

    I think this is a stone I would pass off as-is to not a jewelry fanatic (as most PS'ers are), but to someone believing in crystal healing, for crystal healing purposes.

    Show me your July rubies!

    Here is another picture of my ruby. I was captivated by the delectable candy red as the sunlight danced across my keyboard. However, in midday my phone always captures the color as pinker than what I see. :confused2:

    Wow, that gem tray is getting full! You better set something to clear up some room in there for your dream blue! ;-) I love the chrysoberyl heart. What does Thanos say, what are you still missing to be his apprentice? :lol:

    Yes, I would recommend him. I find his costs reasonable, and he gives small discounts if you do more than one project, so the best thing is to send him those cabs and misc en masse rather than one at a time. His bezels are well done. I didn't even like bezels before setting his work posted by...

    Anyone getting stuff from Yvonne's sale?

    I love sphene. But they're hard to set, and I already have a couple, in a ring and in a pendant. I'm glad they went to someone who actually wears earrings!

    Yay, I got my bee cluster ring! Have trouble getting my phone to capture the right color for the yellow kornerupine, but I find the ring quite cute. :mrgreen2:
