Lori,

I''m going through my collection, getting ready to attempt some photos, and I have an AWESOME sapphire that I want you to have....it is SO YOU!

I posted my email address and got scolded, rightly so, and don''t know how to send this amazing stone to you.

CAN A MOD PLEASE HELP HERE?

OMG I LOVE your collection Freke - its just so yummy, I feel like I''d be tempted to never set any of them because they are so beautiful all sitting out together like that

Awww...Loriken, we''ll see if they can help us out. Do you have any pics?

Thanks AmberGretchen! I don''t know how I''ll set any of them! Although I have some ideas...

I love your entire collection, Freke! They all have such personality. Those Rasp. Rhodolites would look mighty pretty as earrings with diamond halos surrounding them.

Freke, thanks for posting those photos, that was SO MUCH FUN!

Lori, maybe you and Freke can both contact a PS seller or appraiser and ask them to exchange your contact info?

Wow Freke, your collection is INSANE! I love all the colors and shapes and sizes-seriously amazing! Now get to setting them, woman! I think the bezel idea from Etsy is a great idea!

TL I just now saw your post in between my pics! So what do you think of my spinels? I have to be honest, the more I look at my blue from Dan, the less impressed I am with the color. But the deep purple that comes out under fluorescent light is pretty stunning.
I think they''re very beautiful and I think each one is unique. I love the cutting and the rainbows of different colors they throw out.

I love the shot of your collection on the coffee table. The colours seem to pop out in that picture.

Love them, they are all so bright and beautiful. Reminds me that my collection has some growing up to do. You are such a bad influence

WOW Freke WOW!

Your Spinel family is gorgeous but I''d have trouble choosing a favourite because they''re all yummy! I can''t wait to see what you do with them. I love your Etsy idea.

Oh Freke... Your collection is amazing. I, too, adore spinels, especially dark or candy pink ones. I''ve been talking with Barry for a possible new stone to fit a LOGR ring. He doesn''t have the rough yet, but he''s keeping his eyes open for me!

Anyhoo... thank you for your pictures, it was delightful looking at it!!

EBree I''m actually considering putting one in a ring and giving it to a friend. I''m just not a red girl. I have a garnet oval that I never really wear. Anyway, she''d get more out of it than I would. Just a thought.

Thanks yingh!!

Lori We''ll figure something out.

glitterata That''s a good idea.

Geckodani I think (and this may sound weird) but I think I want to put the Darth Vader spinel in rose gold. What do you think?

Kelli Thanks! Love the new Avatar!

Thanks Thing2 I need to get more big stones. And I need more colors. I want a peachy stone, maybe a tourmaline? I need more variety. And I need more blue. Big time... And I should try to get a quote from someone on etsy.

TL Well maybe one day a spinel will catch your eye and you''ll just have to have it. I adore the big gray one--because the color is unusual and it throws off the best rainbows!

Chrono Thanks! That shot is now the background on my computer. I should take my stones out and photography them more often!

LtlFirecracker I''m a great influence, what are you talking about?!

DandiAndi Lol! I''m glad you liked it.

LD Awww thank you! They came off looking very soft somehow, I''m guessing because of the gray undertones. But removed from the bright garnets, bright amethyst, and topaz, they really take on a softer appearance. I dunno. Maybe I''m just weird!

mochi Awesome that you''re looking for more! I think I need to hunt down a purple or violet one. What LOGR setting are you trying to fill? (I love admiring your avatar btw!!!)

Eeeeeek, Freke! Thanks so much for posting these! I love the pics of the whole collection on the table, and the white paper pics!

Loriken - that was so nice of you to offer Ms Freke one of your sapphires! I do hope a mod will help you two get together!

Freke... it''s the same setting that TL has, 8mm cushion one. I''m also having such a problem locating a stone that I like for the setting.

Thanks for the kind comments ladies!!!!!

Lori, do you want to email Barry? I don''t think the mods are going to help out. I''m going to go ahead and email him.
