Anybody buy anything from Jeff White's drop today? Lots of pretties, but I am in love with the sapphires in particular! :love:

I didn't buy anything but that pink spinel at the bottom was so gorgeous!
I'll add in pics of the gems so everyone can admire them...

I finally decided to pull the trigger on that lavender beauty, only to find that someone beat me to it. Oh well, that's what I get for dragging my feet! That pink one is awfully tempting too. Think hubby would get upset this close to Christmas? :twisted: Decisions, decisions...

I missed out too! :wall: Looks like almost everything is gone. The blue sapphire and tourmaline are left. I LOVE the chunky look and huge size of the tourmaline, but alas it is outside my budget :cry2:

I hope some PSers were the lucky buyers!

I loved that one too but not in the budget right now. I’m sorry you missed out.

I waited too long deciding on the pastel pyrope garnet. I would love to see more pictures from whoever scored it.

@MrsKMB There's always next time. :twisted2:

@shinyrocks I loved the look of that big blue sapphire but it was way outside my budget.;( I picked up the blue zircon though so I still feel pretty lucky.:D

@lilmosun I agree. That pyrope garnet looked amazing! :love:

Well, it looks like my time came, after all! I got the beryl! Woohoo! I don't have a supernova cut! Jeff said he "absolutely loves this stone" so I'm hoping for fabulousness! :dance:
Yay!! :clap: Doesn't that beryl just look luscious? I can't wait to see what you think of it in person. :D

Beautiful stones!!! I began an email to him requesting a couple stones, but deleted it since I am going to Paris next week and need the money for chocolate and baguettes. (Yes, I am going to eat that much!) :kiss2:

I really like the spess, as it’s got such a gorgeous colour, but alas I’m banned from spending until Xmas/new year so I’ll just have to live vicariously through you guys. :cry2:

I wish I had funds! The aquamarine is TDF, but I am banned from any more spending on loose gems until I save enough for my dream ruby.

Although I should be saving money too I went in for the mint beryl! I just love the colour and I'm thinking it will look nice in a cocktail ring

Now need ideas for said cocktail ring... @whitewave using your recent aqua thread for inspo :roll2:
That was my favorite stone of the Scoop! So glad you bought it and can’t wait to see it =)2. It looks gorgeous!

The ruby in your avatar looks pretty dreamy to me. :P2
I do love my e-ring ruby, but the cushion that Bron is kindly setting aside for me is my dream ruby. I even named her Dawn and sketched out a 5-stone setting for her, my first ring design. The ruby ring in my avatar is an excellent color, but it's lightly included, not eye-clean, and I didn't get to design the ring myself. My DF and I came across it at the right price and decided to go for it, even though at first I was looking for cushion sapphire e-ring. Now I realize I love rubies more than I love sapphires, so Bron's cushion ruby is the perfect stone for me. :geek2:

That's the stone :love:. I'm hoping to save enough to get it around Christmas, then I will work on CAD for the ring design. I think my design is unique and don't want anyone jumping the gun and using it before me, so I won't post my design until I have the ruby and am close to setting it.
