I know how hard it can be to capture gem colors in posts. I can imagine what you describe about it though. I really love the size and the presence of the stone. I’m hoping it checks out to be as described! Love your new lavender sapphire!I can't quite catch the right colour of the tourmaline which shows more pink and does shift slightly under certain lights, but it's a decent buy for the size!

Those are almost like opposites in feeling. One so air and sky like, open and dreamy, the other so smoldering in fire with intensity, like a crucible with molten sun in it.. Love them all! Spessartites are just so amazing in their richness.
You are amazing how you bring such poetry and different perspectives to gem viewing!Those are almost like opposites in feeling.

Love! You are getting a lovely moonstones together!
Thanks both! Can't wait to see them. I'm hopeful they can be paired with my other new small pair and another banana shaped pair from last year for a dangling set. Something like this design but not exactly so.Love those moonstones, Burmesedaze!
Thank you! I'm going to take my time to plan out the setting, since I'll get it set locally and it has to be easy to make without screwing upThose moonstones are great together! Love the size relationships and of course, the fact that you will be making dangles! Lovely lovely beautiful.
That’s a great idea! Then you have 2 pairs in one. With those stones, you could go with something very simple...but it’s all in the proportions regarding screwing up.Thank you!

I'd like to see if they can make the top pair a wearable set of studs and the rest of the moonstones, dangles on demand. We'll see.
Thank you! I'm also planning out a moonstone necklace. A variation on the dbty design. I originally wanted to do it with my spinels but I think the moonstones deserve to be matchy!How much fun it would be to 'tag along' with you on these adventures! Gorgeous and FUN stuff........the moonstone earrings will be Amazing!
Chunky gold, as in yellow gold would be amazing! The blue goes so well with the color of the yellow! It would be such a rich look. I love the way it is on you given that I’ve seen how your rose gold and spinel earrings, and your jade bracelet look with the warmer metal colors, and on your skin tone. Also, it’s a natural complimentary color for the blue, which can make the blue really pop out visually.Or... Chunky gold settings
I know absolutely what you mean! Remember this cushion moonstone? My first here iirc. It has a yellow/goldish base so I intend to set it in a simple cushion bezel ring in YG to bring out the gold, as it doesn't have that much blue.BUT, the icy look of white metal is also lovely. It’s a ‘cooler’ as in cold, overall look. The metal is in the background more, in which the stones are the main focus. Using yellow gold would make the complimentary color more a forefront design element.
