Got my Barry Supernova Imperial garnet set.
I'm still looking for a jewelery here in Philly I like, so far, everyone I've tried has been underwhelming. :/ But at least they're all cheap and fast. At least none of my stones have been damaged, just the setting is a little meh.

Anyways, I do love this stone, and I got this LOGR setting for it because I wanted to try out a halo.

Ok, on to pics

Yeah, what "meh?" It's lovely -- stone and the setting. YG is just right!
Aw, thanks everyone! I don't think the stone is meh at all! I was just a little underwhelmed with the jewelers who set it, the prongs are a little messy, you can only tell from close up, but still. My hunt for a jeweler I like in Philly continues!

Did you ever try my guy on Jewelers Row? Jean Manazer (in the big building on the southeast corner of8th and Sansom) ...he was super-cheap, quick, and did a really nice job.

Sorry, I can't comment on the "meh" nature of the setting job; the stone's sparkle is too blinding to notice... :love:

Oh, and I love the halo - can you snap a pic of the underside?
Oops, I'm on my way to the airport now, but I will when I get back!

Thanks again all for the kind words! The setting itself is nice for the price, a little light, but looks lovely. :)

MTG,
Did you do 14K or 18K?
I ended up doing 14k as the 18k looked too strong for the delicate color. I'm happy with the choice though, I think it is just the right amount of delicate gold shimmer to offset the stone without competing or overwhelming.

I really love love love the color, very reminiscent of that padparadscha/coral/salmony color I adore so much.

What is a "supernova" imperial garnet? I have never heard the term "supernova" used with garnets - can you educate me??
