What is YAG paraiba? Yttrium aluminum garnet, like a laser? Sounds cool.New line up. That mint garnet looks gorgeous!
I got something from the Sep drop but only received the garnet a few days ago so here they are.
4.405 ct rhodolite garnet from Tanzania
4.235 ct mint tourmaline from Afghanistan
And my bonus gem: 4.73 ct YAG
And in the sun
I’d actually only ordered the garnet and tourmaline, but was accidentally sent the YAG instead of the garnet by mistake and then Gene asked me to keep the YAG and then sent me the garnet after he got it back from his other client (don’t worry, I heard he was going to custom cut her another YAG). So apart from the initial worry ended up totally happy with what happened since I got 3 stones instead of 2 (ikr!!)…
Thank you @PrecisionGem!
And the stones are all beautifully cut. Can’t wait to set them!
Oh, it's gorgeous! Plus, at almost 4cts, it was a great price. That's a win win in my book. What do you think of it in person?
I was thinking the same thing, Elle! I need to get some projects done with Yvonne, otherwise, it would have been mine!.How has that green tsav not sold yet? It’s cheap money and a stock size.
Congrats! I can’t wait to see you pics.I purchased the Mahenge garnet. It will fit a ring setting that I have on hand. The purple was really tempting but I need to set some gems.
I think the tourmaline is really pretty. It’s such a cool cut too!Does nobody like that tourmaline?? It's so beautiful and so cheap! I liked it so much, I bought it without a second thought O_O Had to do it before it escaped my grasp like so many other things. And now I just have to pay for it, when I get to a secure wifi. I spent too much for gifts (for others and myself) and supplies for a new place, but I just couldn't pass this up.
