Took some photos of my new Barry mint, identical twin to one that Jstar is getting soon. It is bright and minty and SPARKLY.

It is 5.9mm, .97 ct

Rose gold?

Lovely color...it looks like it has some blue in it or is that just reflection? I'm looking for a light blueish stone.

There is definitely a hint of blue. :)
No plans yet....and it likely won't be set for awhile! Before it in line are the Barry rubellite and blue spinel, lol.

Here are more photos

Beautiful! You took good pictures. It's hard to capture the color isn't it? Rose gold definitely complements the color. Enjoy it, I love it!

Ooh, very pretty! I agree that rose gold would set those colours off nicely!

Oh yes, rose gold for sure. What a fabulous colour! I'm excited to see how you set your gorgeous blue spinel actually... :naughty:

It will definitely go into rose gold eventually...but it probably won't be set for awhile unless I just get hit in the head wiith the perfect setting!

I'm actually itching to get my malaya garnet and rubellite set first.

Since it's a light toned stone, I would do a rose gold halo. I think it would have the best effect, and show off the faceting pattern really well. :))

MakingTheGrade-

I love your new mint garnet. It is a really beautiful stone! I realize that you plan to set other stones before you set this one, but I can't wait to see it set! Wear it in good health!

Hugs,
Deb/AGBF
