There are some stones up for sale that I am debating between, do I need any? No, but when does that stop me? They all will be gone (at their current prices) fairly soon. Looking for observations on the quality and then the likelihood of setting in a RHR.

Sorry I'm in my phone, have like 5 minutes and can't get links and pics to load properly

Malaya garnets need to be seen in sunlight and artificial light because they typically brown out in sunlight. Darker stones should also be viewed against a lighter background, or they look brighter than irl.

I didn’t bid on those garnets because I knew they were dark. (That’s a nice Instagram charity auction page, though. I’m aiming for one of the paintings. ;-) )

You are the best. I will hold off I think, I am sure Yvonne would accommodate me but perhaps with a tad more lead time.

Thanks! Get more pics if you’re interested in those gems. A good vendor should accompate such a request.
