I'm looking for very bright pink sapphires or spinels possibly Jedi spinels under 3 mm. I've seen some but they are in locations that can't ship to the US now. I'm wanting to find some bright pink stones to pair with my chrysoberyl for a ring by CVB. I will need 2

Check with Yvonne. She always seems to either have them or is able to get them.

I have a few of hers in my cart but I am also looking for other sources. I am not certain the colors of hers will work. I like her 3 mm rubellite tourmaline but she only has 1

Hmm. I don't have any idea who besides Yvonne sells these on the regular. I did get Jedi spinels from lovedogs that are on the 2.3mm range.

I'm willing to part with two of them for a fair price. Not sure these are the right shade for you.

The two on the right are the largest in size and the ones that I'm willing to part with. Below is the same stones in diffused natural light.

Someone teach me how to PM? I've never created a listing on LoupeTroop either. Have you done it before?

The yellow stone is a chrysoberyl, and it's 3.8mm for reference.

ok I thought maybe so because I am wanting them to flank a 5 mm chrysoberyl I have. I think it will look good.

@voce, I don't think PS allows PM's best to create a loupetroop add and you guys can discuss things privately that way.

Hi! Sorry for the threadjack, but @voce, what is this case/holder called? I can’t find it anywhere online. A melé/loose stone holder. Do you have any recommendations where I can buy some? Thank you

Let Caysie source them

Edited, I see Caysie is having trouble sourcing.

Try AJs gems.

I honestly don't know. I've bought melee spinels from Jasmine Jade Boutique, and they came in this type of container, which I repurposed. It's not without its own mishaps, though, and I find it difficult to get small gems out with tweezers from this type of box and have lost 12 1.2mm sapphires when I tried putting them in this type of container to color sort. All the sapphires fell out, and I was never able to find some of them lost into the carpet.

Isn't AJS all the way in Thailand? I've had shipping delays with stuff from there recently.

@Bonsai I don't know if you still want the two I'm willing to part with. I'm thinking of charging $50 with USPS shipping included. It's fine if not, but if you are interested, please create something on LoupeTroop so I can contact you.

I just created a LoupeTroop listing. I took five photos; the first 2 had the color amped up to approximate what I see with my eyes irl in terms of intensity, same as I would touch up pictures of pieces that I wear when I post them to PS. The other pictures are untouched, less flattering, but I want to show you the best and the worst before you make a decision.

@Bonsai please verify here whether you have contacted me via LT and, if so, whether you were the person whose initial was A or the person whose initial was D. I specifically listed this for you, so I did not expect more than one person to contact me via LT. :shock:

Ok, thanks for confirming! I was wondering why you wouldn't text me back. I got the payment and will be mailing the stones out tomorrow. I hope you love them.

Hi, Voce,

Oh, ok, thank you. I’m wondering where I can find something like this, but if you lost melé from it, that’s not good. Well, if anyone knows what this type of case is called, please let me know… I’ve searched all kinds of places for something like this and I can’t find any. I’ve looked through Ebay, jeweler’s websites and jewelry supplies etc. Can’t find anything! :confused:
Thanks again!

I bought these yesterday. They are like some of the ones the sellers sent the gems in but other gems came in different bags and I don't have containers for them.
It comes tomorrow I can let you know how it work
