    Thanks to everyone for sharing your pendants and necklaces. I’m currently on an inspiration recon mission for pendant settings for an emerald cut tourmaline. This thread is super helpful.

    Keep the pics coming. They’re beautiful!!

    Me too!! but lavender jade doesn't seem to be very common, although hunting down a gem rarity adds to the fun. =)2

    Your citrine pendant is a beautiful amber color, thanks for sharing.

    Have you started wearing this more? It's too pretty to hide in a box!

    I just got it appraised and am getting insurance on it in the next week or so. Hopefully that will push me to wear it more, since that way I won't be totally screwed if I ever (god forbid!) lose it.

    DW's latest acquisition is an agate bead necklace. The beads are graduated from 10-18mm.

    Haven't seen much agate on here, but I think this necklace is quite pretty with interesting color combinations. Didn't cost a fortune either!

    I love agate and that necklace has such a beautiful feeling and simplicity to it. I love the boldness of size and color too.

    We really don’t see enough agate/chalcedony in these threads. I have been looking for a large, blue bead agate necklace with huge, asymmetrical beads. I once saw such a necklace while visiting a small shop in Mendocino. I am kicking myself for not buying it in the spot since it was gone when I called about it:( It was the most luscious flow of softness and shades of lavender, huge, long cold and slippery shiny beads.
    I have spent forever trying to find something like it. Naively, I thought that since agate is a more common stone, it can’t be that hard to find similar beads. I have found nothing like those again. They came from Tucson and even the artist who purchased them did not find them the following year.
    So the point is that when one sees a gorgeous agate piece, it might not be found again, since pieces can be so unique!

    Here is the material I’d like to find in large, huge beads!

    And in shapes which are elongated, a symetrical, more curved than the below necklace, and longer length. But this necklace has a great chunky softness about it.

    While I’m on this thread, I can add this pendant/pin to the list of personal favorites.

    Forgive the very low light picture wearing as a pendant. I love the fact that when worn as a pendant, it reminds me of an eclipse. when worn as a pin, it feels a little like different phases of the moon based on positions.

    We've been on the lookout for a blue lapis lazuli necklace in larger size beads, but I'll have to broaden my search to include blue agate!

    I've never seen a carved gemstone that really appealed, but yours is extraordinarily beautiful, and the setting is superb.

    I have seen blue chalcedony round beads in larger size at 22nd street show. I cannot remember which vendor. However the colour is light blue. The price is not high for those beads. I didn’t buy it because I was looking for beads with stronger blue and didn’t find any in Tucson. I have also seen light coloured chrysoprase round breads from Australia The chrysoprase beads are very expensive.

    The darker blue is hard to find in large beads. In order to be blue, the bead would have to have a significant size since it can be so translucent . The loveliest material which I’ve seen comes ftom Turkey I believe. That one picture is from a rough seller in which one can order, but then getting it cut would be the challenge.

    That’s interesting about the chrysoprase. I can imagine large, high quality beads...must have been really beautiful!
