    I'm already thinking about a stone for next year's fall season, particularly around Halloween since that's when my birthday is. So, let's see your orange stones, please!

    Here’s my orange spess garnet. I have plans to reset it some day.

    And my school bus yellow sapphire (has that orangey vibe).

    The orange sapphire is officially a yellow sapphire, like the second one @elle_71125 posted. It was recut to match the diamond and blue sapphire I already had which according to the specs is 5,9x7 mm. Please note that the depth should not be too steep for a ring like this.
    The rings are made in 18k RG by a local jeweller here in Europe. It can be easily made by a lot of jewellers. I would recommend David Klass if you are in the US

    These are my current orange family gems. The only one I have set is the carnelian.

    From bottom moving towards finger tips: sunstone, spessartite, garnet (not sure which type), tourmaline, anthill garnet (might be more red than orange...)
