Hey everyone! Long time no post! We have finally moved from Japan and are now back in the US, and to add to the surprizes I'm expecting a little girl this fall!! Which is where I need some help.

I want to have a stackers set made, similar to BurBerry's Gorgeous Set by JKT, as a little gift to myself for the birth of my daughter and my last pregnancy. I know I want to use cabs or sugarloafs in various "girly" colors- pink, purple, creams etc. I think I would like 3 gemstones and the total for all of them to be under $500. Can any of the PSer's help me out? With the pregnancy I'm tired all the time and I just don't have the focus to search by myself so I'm hoping we can find a few fabulous options out there.

TIA!

Moonstone would be pretty! Or something opalescent. Does Uli have cabs or sugarloaf stuff?

I think you can find all these colors in spinels, and cabs are inexpensive.
I like chalcedony. If you like opals, some simple inexpensive cream opals can be very, very pretty.
Cream catseyes. I have seen very cheap catseye cabochons.

Your girly stack ring project sounds lovely!

Spinel, tourmaline, ruby, opal, amethyst, moonstone, rose quartz, chalcedony, and sunstone could all work. I don’t think it’d be too hard to find those stones in cabochons. You could also have someone like Rick at Art Cut Gems cut a few stones in those colors for you. That’d probably be easier than trying to source them all.

Swala might have more sugarloaves and cabochons than what is on their site.

I really love this one from ACS. I’ve been thinking of buying it, but I might work for your project:

Here are some stack rings in pink, purple, and blue:

JKT has some on Etsy for sale:

I’m so glad you like my stack rings. I don’t know if you were planning on doing spacer bands, but I’ve found I don’t really need mine. I’ve been wearing them like this:
