Mochi,


I hope that you weren't set on that stone. Part of me loves to have a community that loves stones, yet I feel bad when we want the same thing. You have some very pretty stones. I love that tourmaline you bought. The blue is to die for. I looked at it, but I am trying to stick to my small stone project right now. I think one more and I will be ready to find someone to set them.


Here is a pic of the sapphire for reference.


I love all the stones everyone has got so far. Can't wait to see real life pics.

Noooo....I'm glad someone on PS got the stones because that usually means there are going to be alot of pictures posted!!

I'm into blue's right now, don't know why!



BEG... I did get the chysoberyl. That was pure impulse buying.

I'm just excited that we all got to get something and that we're going to be able to share the pictures!!

Woohoo! Your other chrysoberyl will have a friend!

EDIT: That was my 1000th post!!!

He mailed mine on Tuesday, and I got it today....but I only live 3 hrs from Yuma. My BF has been laughing at the fact that I am buying gems from his hometown.

Mochi I hope you get yours soon! I want to see more pics of that tourmaline. The more I see it on your avatar, the more I want one that color too! PS is SO bad for my bank account...

I don''t get mine until Monday, since I won''t be home until Sunday and the valet''s closed on Sundays

Like I mentioned...two are from Barry. One from his new inventory. One not on his site. My third stone is from Dan.

It was hard to not get little sparks of fire from this baby. It''s probably the most delicate, feminine stone I''ve ever seen. I love it, but have no idea what to do with it. Oh, and it looks like the little sister to my other pink spinel from Dan...

Sorry they are both dirty! You can see the size difference here. The pink is just a tiny bit more than half the size of my ering.

Hi, my name is Liz and I''m addicted to spinel...

Hey, I guessed right!

It is very pretty, and it does have a ton of sparkle. Are you going to set it or put it in a box?

ETA: Spinal is a not a bad stone to be addicted to, I am addicted to sapphires....that is a bit of a more costly addiction. But the blue in your ring is gorgeous. I feel like every-time I see a pic of it, it is a different color.

Lol, yeah you did! I think I''ll set it eventually. It''s pretty tiny, but it packs a punch in the sparkle department. If I had a third one that was about this size, I could have a three stone baby pink spinel ring.

Thanks for the compliments on my ering! I went to the jeweler the other day and chatted with the benchman for a while about a reset. I think we''ll be doing one when FI gets paid again. He was super interested in the stone and thought it was fascinating. (He also thought that the setting job was fascinating too, but that''s another story...)

I need to get some really good pics of it under fluorescent lights when it''s the purplest. None of the ones I have match up to the almost amethyst color that comes out...

Oh Freke that''s such a pretty color! It looks like it has SO much life! I can''t wait until you get it set, and get your ering reset!
