    @suzanne2 :twisted2:
    please report back when you get it! I couldn't wait to see what you end up picking for metal colors and setting.

    I’d be tempted but I’m just a huge oval gal. Awesome color for sure.

    I had given up on finding an affordable well saturated mint so grabbed this...and very happy that I did. I thought the window might bother me but the color and sparkle distracts my eyes from it.

    I’ve purchased 3 of his gems and love them! I like the designs he chooses and they are very well cut.

    I always thought that ring was so unique and pretty. It’s not my usual style but there’s just something special about it that draws the eye. :love: I can’t believe it hasn’t sold yet.

    I think it would make a pretty index finger ring. I love the bright color. It’s very eye catching! Sorry, I’m not helping, @lilmosun !

    I’ve seen a flurry of nice looking electric blue topaz rough lately from a couple of vendors. While I can’t help you avoid buying this one, I did fall prey to the siren song of the electric blues...

    Very pretty ring, @lilmosun, I understand the temptation! This setting would look awesome with bright green demantoids, too :)

    I was relatively good and only bought an inexpensive dark blue aqua and some demantoid melee for an upcoming project,

    I’ve been watching this for months, but can’t bring myself to pull the trigger. If someone here bought it, it be excited to see photos!

    That vanadium chryso pear is divine! I was so tempted I put it into a cart and started the purchase, but then I remembered my 2019 vow... "finish what I've already started" ...

    FWIW I definitely agree with 2Neezers this pear would be stunning in a diamond halo!

    @2Neezers wow what a find! Too bad I maxxed out my bling budget, need to set some gems that I already bought. You *did* mean that the vanadium beryl would definitely pop in a *yellow* diamond halo, right? Because imo that would blow a white diamond halo out of the water in accentuating the minty color. :lol:

    A yellow diamond halo would be gorgeous with a minty stone @voce ! That is another thing to add to my wish list :D.
    @marymm I had the pear in my cart all day yesterday too. I asked David for a hand shot of the two stones and he sent it late last night. I think they are a little lighter than what I am looking for, but the cut on heart is really grabbing my attention in the photo.
