    Here’s my teeny tiny but green as hell emerald.

    If it were a diamond, it might be .35-40 points. But it is literally the most pure green thing, not just emerald, I have ever seen.

    Yes! I'm discovering the joys of using the index finger for an extra ring!

    i think every ring needs a finger

    I would gladly rock an index finger ring if those digits weren’t arthritic and slightly bent:( Instead, I wear bands on my right thumb.

I purchased preloved from a lovely Pser. I even wear them sleeping so comfortablle! So tho tiny, I get compliments! The rose gold setting really enhances these littles!

    Wait! Dang it I read the thread wrong! It is suppose to be small, but mighty ‘rings’ and I of course posted earrings! :sleep: Ugh!

    But on another note, I love seeing everyone’s mighty gemstones, (some of course I now want) @mellowyellowgirl, I love the emerald ring! I now want an emerald! Give me more stats please and where did you get the emerald??

    Mine was 0.66cts, 5.9mm and I got it from:
    http://www.embassyemeralds.com/

    There was a bit of drama with it initially as when it arrived it had some surface reaching inclusions. One looks like a chip on the girdle and one looks like a chip on the table.

    I contacted EE who were quick to respond and offered a range of very fair solutions to the issue. As I live in Australia, postage was going to be a huge issue so I took up their offer of a discount and kept the stone because of the amazing colour.

    I had it set and obviously it survived the setting process just fine. I really love the ring and it is one of my most worn ones.

    This stone has had a lot of adventures! I had quite an encounter the first time I tried to get it set!

    So there you go! That's all there is to know about that one :D

    Bonus pic with its big friend!

    My little grandidierite. It's small but it packs a punch. I remember ordering it from Brad at The Gem Trader, not really intending to keep it, just wanted a look. When it came the color blew me away.

    The top no heat eye clean Vietnamese rubies over perform even the best Namya spinels or rubies from other sources I ever saw. Those pics are made in bad daylight on a very cloudy winter day.

    Adding my teeny sapphire and konerupine ring - sits nice and low as the stones are so tiny I don’t have to worry about whacking it!

    She is the cleverest little thing! Can do anything/any trick you teach her. She really should have been with someone who was more motivated to train and compete with her.

    She's also got a knack for making us feel guilty! We KNOW she's good at this and she's the most spoilt baby ever but we can't help ourselves. She does an excellent solemn "I have been severely mistreated" face.

    It's quite common for the family to stand around and feel sorry for her when there really is nothing about her to pity :lol:
