Does anyone know why it looks dark around the edges? Will it appear that way IRL? Thanks for looking

Thats a very pretty color and a nice cut too. I bet it will fit into the setting. One thing about those spinels with a little purple ( lavender ) or blue is that some of them really shift color a lot. You don''t see it with the pure pinks and reds for some reason. They must be lacking the mineral that does it. It''s something that has always bothered me but some people really love it. Not a negative thing just something strange and unusual about certain types spinels. I guess I mentioned it because I think thats going to be a shifter :)

Thanks, innerkitten

I think that color shifting appeals to me, I''ll have to wait and see when I get the stone (depends on customs, ugh)!

I''m in Canada


I just got an email from Barry (who is super nice) and he said this is one of the brightest stones he has in the Feb bunch, and he''s surprised it didn''t sell very quick!

Now I''m super excited, and he sent it with a display ring
I''ll have to get camera batteries!

I''m very impressed with ACS, I ordered the stone last night around 8pm and Barry responded within a couple of hours and sent the stone this am!

Shimmer, I can''t wait to see that spinel. It looks really brilliant and a real sparkler. I bet it will be gorgeous. Please take a lot of pictures.

Yay! I bet it will get there fast. Barry is a real sweetheart, and I'm surprised with him that it's taken so long for it to be picked up. Gorgeous stone! I can't wait to see pics!

ETA: the dark edges are just facets that aren't reflecting light at that particular angle. I bought the one next to it, and it doesn't look like that particular picture all of the time. Nothing to worry about there!

That''s beautiful!!! I can''t wait to see more pics of it!

I went back and checked Barry''s Feb inventory, and unsurprisingly, almost all of it was sold by now

Yeah Shimmer! I was considering this one and was too very surprised that it was available so long. I only decided not to get it because I ordered the garnet from Gene instead. I will be very interested to see your photos!

Congrats!

Only a couple. I only took a couple though. Posted here and it was at night and under halogens and they don''t do a great job of showing off the color. It is the most delicate and feminine stone I''ve got. I love it though!

You can already see the dispersion in that picture, I see some orange peeking through.

Yay!!!! While you''re at it, tell him to get you something nice. (I like to add this in to stuff when I ask FI to do things for me.)

Sooo...about what time do you get home?
