Here is my entire collection at the moment. There are three new additions since my last "entire collection" photoshoot.

The three new additions...

--White Topaz from Barry, 4.45cts, 8.3x10mm, Supernova oval, cut for me.
--Periwinkle spinel, Barion, .54cts, 4.60mm, Dan Stair, from Dan's new drop.
--Purple-y Color shifting sapphire, .88mm, octagon, Gene, from a friend. (This sapphire is really really hard to photograph, and looks dismal in this photo)

My garnets. I just liked this photo because of the colors. The red garnets look dark, but I think it's because the camera was too close.

And for the sapphire, in various lighting. I can''t capture this, but when its in outdoor light, it turns bluish green. Not joking. The closest I could get were the pictures to the right, and they don''t show the green at all. And in other lights, it throws tons of red flashes. It''s pretty amazing.

Thanks Coati and akmiss!!! I love my stones. When I took them out today, FI says to the dog, "Your mom is playing with her toys again..." Lol. I really need to start setting them.

Very pretty! Love your collection. I can''t wait for you to get your stacking ring. Is this a etsy vendor? I just purchased a set for my daughter.

I''m so excited for you!!

I was thinking stacking bands from this etsy vendor, like this link--I love her bezels and the delicate bands. Link

She hasn''t gotten back to me yet though...

mochi Thanks! I hope she writes me back soon! If she doesn't I'm going to have to look for someone else to do them...

Innerkitten do you want to know the average size of all of them or just the new ones?

They range from 7.41cts (big white topaz) to the tiny 2.75mm demantoid (no idea of the carat weight on that one). I can try to figure it out if you'd like.

BeachRunner I was shocked that no one had snatched it up by the time I got there.

LtlFirecracker Thanks!!!

I had a bad thought; if the stones are close in size and especially for the rounds, you could make a multicolour / multi-gemstone necklace or bracelet!

Catmom Thank you!!!

Chrono Don''t give me any ideas!!!!The dark red garnets, the Barry tourmaline, the pink Dan spinel, the blue Dan spinel...they are all very very close. (But don''t really go together! Thank goodness...)

TL Thanks!!!! (We need to find you a spinel...)

mochi I love it! It called to me from the case with it''s crazy color. Even though it was super tiny I had to have it. And it wasn''t exactly expensive!
