Yes… any details? And can we also have a hand shot pls?

Actually, there are several other jadeite pieces in the pics. More of them too pls.

Alright, hand shot. The oval jadeite is 13 X 10 mm. It is imperial green - and has that typical brightness under some lighting conditions, as seen in the lower photos.
The earrings and leaf ring are the same shade of green. They are old pit glassy green.
The jade bracelet always makes me smile It is a lovely happy green that always glows. I have a brooch with the same kind of jadeite. 01A064CF-C40C-4F38-8582-25C1DB254631.jpeg

Where did you find such beautiful glowing jade in the bracelet?

Hi @autumngems I bought the bracelet from On Cheong Jewellery. https://oncheong.com/ I also bought a butterfly brooch with the same kind of jadeite - but there isn’t any more of this jadeite in the store.
At the recent international Jewellery show in Singapore, I spotted a pair of earrings with similar material. The jeweller (from Hong Kong) told me she searched high and Low before finding the four small pieces for the earrings.

Finally getting around to setting my sapphire and OECs. They go to GIA next week to get lab reports. The setting is nothing fancy - just a sort of antique-inspired three-stone. The gems themselves take up so much real estate there's no room for anything else.

I LOVE your sapphire! Does it do some violet shifting? It looks huge!

Thanks! I honestly don't think it shifts to violet much. Those pics are probably as violet as it looks. It's at GIA now and I'm a little nervous because I bought it from ceylonsapphiregems on insta and then shortly afterwards there was that big drama on here involving him. So I'm really hoping it comes back as just heated, as how it was represented. I will keep everyone posted. Even if it turns out to have some other treatment, I am still going to set it because I can't decide on any other setting for my OEC diamonds and also want to be able to wear them, as they are the only diamonds over a carat that I own, and they've been sitting in the safety deposit box for three years.

I think it is around 6 carats. I don't remember. It is very deep as well but it has a lovely color. Not too dark, not too light, doesn't black out, but is noticeably a different color than my engagement ring sapphire so I don't feel like I'm repeating or replacing it!

Yes please do keep us updated. I read those threads as they unfolded in dismay about customer service, but had also read the ones that the stone was as good or better than expected upon arrival. Yours is definitely beautiful and will be stunning with your OECs!

Pssst @Crimson can you post the stone in here or in your thread so we can gossip about how you'll set it!!!!!!???

I looooooove it!!!
@mellowyellowgirl i recently got these 3mm spinels from @OTL.
Do you think might go well with the pink Cuprian tournaline? If anyone else has suggestions, criticisms, ideas, please share them! Thank you :mrgreen2: 0E2CE0E1-A3CE-4A40-BF17-015AB5BE4DE3.jpeg

@mellowyellowgirl So do I! I’ll probably meet my designer this weekend. She designed my multi-spinel bangle and Jedi spinel ring, so let‘s see what she up with!

@Crimson @Autumn in New England Ive made a mental guess! I think you gave it away in your clues! Hehe I shall wait and see if I’m right!

Oh how fun! And it didn’t cost me a cent!

Haha, @mellowyellowgirl I am sure you are right!
I’m sure @Autumn in New England would guess it too.
The trouble I get into.. . I went to get the pink cuprian designed and to get an opinion on the blue spinel. The gemologist advised me to return the spinel and then he pulled out this glowing, green gem…=):mrgreen:

Oh my, hope you find some time to relax, @ChaiK.
@mellowyellowgirl has made a guess and @Nick_G has got it, so don’t look at the rainbow thread yet! Here’s what I posted:
”I don’t have it yet, only placed a deposit. I need to learn more because it is not my usual green gem. It costs a bomb! If I buy it you won’t see me posting much new stuff for a while Clue: GRS certified Old Mine. Location: 4 letters.”

Haha! Same. The chart below also shows why CS are better buys if we like them:

Credit Suisse has also issued this report - not that we PSers need any more encouragement :mrgreen2:
