I am unsure of how many people read my previous post asking about gem selection for my sister and wife...but I have decided what to purchase and wanted to show you guys the photos.

First off I wanted to thank three people in particular who helped explain some great things about gems.

The first is Maurice, aka MJO, who spent alot of time answering my questions, and without him I wouldn't have been as informed. He is a great guy..with amazing knowledge of gems, and quite a collection.

The person I did purchase the stones from was Richard Homer, as quite a few of you have. The cuts on these stones, as well as color and size, fit these special gifts perfectly. Richard has been very busy, yet made time for me...and I truly appreciate it. This Christmas will have some emptiness, but I am hoping the bond created between my wife and sister with my mothers birthstone, and idea of a fresh start with something so beautiful is something that is priceless for me. Thank you.

Alright...on to the stones. I appreciate any comments or observations.

Those are simply gorgeous stones. What wonderful gifts. What are you (or they) going to do with them?

WOW!


BTW I just read your original thread. What a lovely thought, to give garnets in memory of your mother.

Cind11,

I am unsure what my sister is going to want to do with the Orange Spess...but I am hoping they will both mount them in settings.

I am also taking care of the setting for my sister, so it will be a pendant or ring. Whatever she prefers.

My wife is going to choose a Leon Mege design, so it may be a while before she gets to wear it...but it will be worth it.

Leon Mege is the current plan. I have spoken with him on the phone a couple of times, but he is very busy right now...I will post the photos as soon as the rings are done.

With the trillian orange stone, it will be a little more difficult to find a decent mounting in my opinion. A large triangle center stone seems to be a tougher thing to find an example of.

I think your sister''s would look better in a pendant than a ring. And a leon for your wife? *swoon* That will be beautiful!

I agree the trillion would be best as a pendant, and the tsav as a ring... good luck w/setting them!!
