    C50C3A4A-91E3-4708-9407-74190C3A818A.jpeg My medium toned 2.8 ct emerald in the hot summer sun. Don’t mind the straggling hair!! Sorry for the smudges on the table. I generally don’t clean my emeralds with soap and more rarely than my sparkly gems.

    Thank you, I can’t believe I waited so long to reset it. Here’s an artificial light photo. It’s a performer!

    Sure is! It almost looks paraiba-ish it's so glowy and blue tinted in this photo.

    You made me put an emerald on "the list" now. :D

    Yes, it is paraiba like. It’s a bit lighter than the trade ideal, and no metallic sheen, but it does have that paraiba vibe/glow. It’s also more blue like a Chivor stone. Thanks everyone for the kind words.

    @T L, how do you "clean" emeralds at home? Wipe them with jewelry cloth? How to get to the pavillions? I suppose you have a hand full of emerald rings so the "ugly" one doesn't get to see the light of day:bigsmile:?

    Warm water, a soft toothbrush and a gemstone cloth.

    82540F1D-509B-46DF-8BB8-9A31E8A86CDE.jpeg Idont think that I ever added my pink spinel to this thread of gorgeous colored gemstone jewelry. It is a Tajik spinel. From Wildfish Gems, in a Michael Beaudry platinum diamond setting.

    Thanks Junebug. It’s the ring I wear most of the time as my ering. I took Gene’s little quiz about finding your favorite type of gemstone.I thought it would be diamond or sapphire but it was spinel! Now I’m wanting a red cushion cut spinel but my budget says “ now way” to that one .:(2

    Someone should seriously change the name of this sticky thread. People post everything here, not just e-rings. Thank you for sharing your beautiful collection of jewels!!!

    Those ring, on the left is tourmaline while the right is garnet. The loose stone, green are peridots which weight at 12 carat and 6 carats. The light bluish green loose stone is tourmaline. While the dark red is garnet and the dark orange stone is spessartite :)

    I wish I knew what the center stone was. It's blue-green like a tourmaline, but the inclusions make me hesitate to say paraiba. It could also be an emerald cab? Maybe?

    I thought I'd add my new ruby and diamond 3 stone here as I haven't posted it in a coloured stone thread yet.

    Still can't believe this is mine! I love it more each day.
