Idiot question: if the cabochon were gray instead of colourless (same glass quality) - would the price be the same?

It would be less because it's not a desirable shade. Same if blue base or yellow base. But if it's a good green base or imperial green...whoa sky's the limit.

How lovely, the saying. Sounds like good luck on a saucer flying all around.

That donut is a fall into and dream your life away color. It's striking because it's - whats the word - it's - where is @Bluegemz when you need her gift for description? Floating? Anyway, I can't wait for a neck shot. Any ideas how to set it?
Awe thanks @suzanne2 . Reminds me of a moss covered river stone with ice over it, or of streaks of clouds in the sky, though green clouds. If they were blue, they would be extra sky and water like. Actually, like looking into a pool of fresh, still water with clean tiny water plants inside.

Doesn't look as pricey as your green oval cabs! Hearts are done when they can't get circles or ovals and have to cut round a flaw.

Besides. Doesn't look THAT green.

Erm enough smacking?
Haha yes! *sigh*
I'm a sucker for a halo-ed heart! I really am!

You know what Pink Bandit told me when I squealed and showed this to him?

"Show your jewellery friends first and DO not message the people unless you buy"

I will say one thing for No5 at least she responds! The other people aren't great at responding!

Do you (or anyone else really) ask her about stuff in other people's shop?

I am tempted to next time!

But I figure you livestream a lot so maybe that's why she responds.

She was awesome when I bought cheap earrings but they were listed under her.

No heart for me right???

Technically she's boss. You can try and tell her you are our friend but others no response!

Anyway I'm just watching and surfing to gauge price. No big purchases until I can see the physical goods myself. Greens and lavender differ too much in photos and irl. Lack of evenness bugs me too.

I just put dishwasher soap in a glass of water. Then I put my ring or pendant in there. Then I let it sit over night. I take it out and rinse it after 24 hours. Sometimes, have no time. So it is in the soap water for 48 hours.

Don't know if that is the right way to do it.

Better not. It is waxed so not sure if that will remove the layer faster.

Clean with cloth is ok. Or mild soap with water. On livestream if there is dust in crevice, they use a soft tooth brush to gently brush it off.

Oh I did not think of that:oops:. The wax can be eaten off by the dishwater soap. So ok, not doing that anymore for jadeite. :eek2:

Yes, on LS, I see them wiping with like this cloth for glass.

I asked if there was colour zoning. She said don't have. She said it is the light.

Dunno.....I am supposed to be wearing a lot of red this year, though.

She repeated: Muna.
