The orange sapphire has sold, but the blue zircon is still available. I’m hoping someone will buy it soon ;)). I am on a stone buying ban and want the zircon badly to make in to a three stone with diamond sides. It’s sooo tempting!

It has a gorgeous elongated shape and I think it would look amazing as a three stone? ;)2

:cry2:the lilac sapphire was gone before I realized it was for sale.

I am very clueless about the world of colored stones, but lately Elle's posts have been really inspiring me. I love the Precision cut stones that you all have been posting! I'd love to know your thoughts on the 1.055 carat sapphire (Gem2213). It looks like it is not the same color throughout the stone. It is clearer towards the outside of the stone. I like that look, but I'm curious if that is generally not considered as desirable?

Btw, that lilac sapphire is gorgeous!

Have you seen Gene’s video for that sapphire? It looks beautiful. I think beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There are some people who only want the absolute perfect gemstone (which, of course comes with the highest price tags) and other people who love gems for the things that make them unique (Plus, you can get a bargain that way). All of my paraibas, for instance, are pretty well included...and I love them just the way they are. For what it’s worth, sapphires can definitely show signs of color zoning. I think it just depends what your comfortable with.

Yes, I think it is absolutely gorgeous. In the video it looks different than in the close up photo, but I like both very much. The world of colored gems is so vast that it is hard for me to figure out exactly what I like best. Blue is my favorite color, and I really like the beautiful cuts of these gems. I will keep thinking about this stone.

The most interesting thing about gemstones is that there are so many different variations within even one color family. It’s probably the reason I have multiple pinks and multiple blue/greens. It’s a journey. Take your time...you’ll know the right gem when you see it. :D

I had to grab that chrome tourmaline. I had one several years ago, but it was too dark for my liking (even though it was probably trade ideal). This one looks bright and tsav-like.
I’m glad it was you. I love the color on that one and it was the standout piece for me. I can’t wait to see your pics. :love:

The tourmaline looks amazing and what a great price! I hope someone here got it and will share photos.
@NKOTB Did your Chrome Tourmaline arrive yet? I would love to see more pictures once you have it in hand :)).

These two little beauties arrived today. Chrome tourmaline and lavender sapphire. Chrome pictured with my tsav that Gene also cut, lavender pictured with another green garnet from him, as well as a mahenge that Peter cut. Felt like a springy combo. 49AE884D-FBF8-47A6-BAE2-A80774C0B525.jpeg 7A7AE3A5-9953-49BD-9E44-E50B76419837.jpeg 499EFBB5-5669-4FF1-A5ED-F08B5FD1D90E.jpeg 04300B5D-3962-404C-B754-3ABDA820C393.jpeg 135EC69B-2888-44FA-9D5E-ED2D528835CE.jpeg 8B15A4C7-202A-45D8-8575-D9160B14C90E.jpeg AC372625-E6EB-41CA-AED1-7B51C7BFD35B.jpeg 20C8AF76-187E-468D-8689-84670D258258.jpeg 46ACC9F6-F2AA-4355-A55B-3C1F00293ED7.jpeg 52BD13FD-2748-45C6-83DE-6DEC54231B97.jpeg 5C53EF42-7CA1-4AA9-9805-B3BB1398FFBA.jpeg

Gorgeous spring colours! Any setting plans?

Oh, wow! That chrome tourmaline looks spectacular! In fact, everything on your hand is drool worthy. :love::love::love:
