I’m absolutely loving that concave cut pink tourmaline and wishing I was the one who bought it. Please tell me it was another PSer so I can ogle it some more. :drool:

What do you guys think of the Mahenge garnet? I think the cutting is gorgeous but it’s a smidge too peach for my skin tone.

Yes, that tourmaline is gorgeous, I still need a concave cut gem in my collection. In the meantime, I TRIED to hold off on the garnet, to let someone else go for it, but couldn’t resist, in the end. I, too, am of peachy skin tone, but maybe if I do a rose gold engraved halo, no diamonds? It’s cheaper than a big champagne diamond. :)

Oh, I'm so glad you went for that peachy garnet. I kept going back to watch the video because it looks so yummy! Now I can admire your pics. :dance:

I think rose gold halo would be perfect! :kiss2:

For all those loving the mahenge garnet, it appears to be back and available on Gene’s site! I’m selfishly hoping someone here gets it so I can see pictures

Btw, is that little indigo blue sapphire come back after a previous purchase? But could be something wrong with my memory.

Looking forward to seeing what you decide..

I haloed my similarly colored (malaya) garnet with kornerupine.

That is a very beautiful color combination. What is the center stone’s size?

Thank you. I love the combination too..like some, my skin tone is not well suited to soft pinks or anything with the slightest of orange modifier. It's 7mm. I have large fingers so need the coverage lol.

I ordered a lab Padparadscha from Gene last week and he sent word yesterday that he's finished cutting it! I'm so excited for this beauty to arrive :kiss2: I prefer this colour (flame fusion) over the other (Czochralski Process) as I like Pads that are more saturated. Certainly can't afford a natural though, especially at this size :lol: Thank goodness for lab stones! :love:

I got it!
First pic is by the window, but no sun at all here today. Others are inside and inside shadowed.

That looks like a wonderful silky sapphire!

I nabbed the Mahenge Garnet yay, per pic and video it is just the color I've been searching for, fingers crossed.

FWIW if I was in the market for a Pink Sapphire, I really love the color and cut of the newly listed round (Gem 2734) -- it would really be lovely for an ER ...
