A blue topaz for my husband (for sure this time). Will be getting a ring made for his Christmas pressie. I love the blue on this stone and the cut. Blue also is his favorite. This is not a new stone, though.

And this purple spinel - also had a setting in mind - can't afford it now. I can't control myself - need to request all account being blocked from online shopping.

Mochi - you said you got a couple, but only posted one - are you holding out?

ETA: Nevermind - I see you posted the Aqua at the same time I was typing! :)

I bought the mint tourmaline. I'm not sure if it was the right decision. I'm already having second thoughts.

Hoofbeats... I got the aqua.

The round mint tourmaline, right? If it''s a color like the one I purchased last month, it''s going to be gorgeous. What kind of second thoughts are you having, if I may ask?

Mostly second thoughts about the dark spots in the photo. And maybe the color. Looks more blue in the pic even though the description says mint green. We'll see!

I'm extremely stressed and when stressed I shop. I went to some mall stores yesterday (had some jewelry I needed to get routine inspections for) and was going to buy something cause that's what I do when stressed. But PS has ruined me. So I got it out of my system today I suppose. Well . . . I could start shopping for settings. . .


Mochi - is there a thread with pics of the one you got last month? If so point me to it so I can breathe easier!

This baby - I was thinking of this LOGR

Nice tourmaline!
I think it would look great in that setting. Please post pics when you get it.

Everyone always has so much fun when these vendors put up new merchandise. I hope you all love your beautiful goodies, and I hope all of you post lots of pics.

Hoofbeats: This is the link. I should take more pictures of this stone. It''s very lovely IRL.

I know exactly what you mean my stress shopping, I do the same thing.

Thanks! I LOVE that color. I''m on a mission for a certain blue/green color and I will probably break the bank trying to find it. Unless a certain PSer wants to sell me the stone that is causing this search! Ha ha.


Anyways, I think ours will be different colors. We''ll see! I''m more worried about the potential dark spots than the color. Any thoughts on that?

If you're concerned, ask Barry for another photo. I suspect that's the "dark spots" you're seeing is the camera shadow. Barry himself in the description states that it's a bright stone, and it doesn't look like a saturation that would cause natural extinction.

I think light colored gemstones are just hard to capture on camera. The peach tourmaline was absolutely a pain. The camera constantly casted a dark shadow, but IRL it''s very pretty. Also this particular blue/green tourmaline...what a pain to capture!

I can''t wait for you to get yours, though. Woulld love too see your pictures posted! Have you emailed Barry with your concern?? He''s really a darling and answers emails promptly.

Hoofbeat- that is why I was hesitant on the iolite and the spinel pair...darkish near the edges in the photos. Barry is great to deal with and hasn''t been upset with my previous returns-so no worries :). I am sure it will be lovely!

Ahh.. I wanted that spess
Moments too late! Too indecisive on anything else at the moment... so I''m just saving my money for now.

OMG the blue/green Nigerian Tourmaline made my heart skip a beat ............ until I clicked on it and it''d been sold.


I hope somebody got it from here - please post a picture if you have!

How funny! I do the same thing but try to limit it to window shopping for most cases.
Or I do cleaning... which I guess is a much 'healthier' stress reliever...

So mochi and TL, you think that LOGR ring will work for the pink tourmaline? I like the ring since it reminds me of a lotus, had a pink stone in mind all the time (though I am not a pink woman at all!) I need to hold off buying that ring until the tourm arrives.
