This thread is for any gemstones without the polished flat surfaces called facets.

Fine non-faceted gems offer a GLOW that illuminates an entire room! Alas, lately, I am seeing fewer non-faceted gem posts... I'm beginning to think PS has lost their love for non-faceted gems; prove me wrong!

Is that faceted opalite?! I've never seen that before! unique and gorgeous! The emerald carvings with that perfect color and insane translucency still win for me!

The following are only my cabochons that are set & that I still own. I have a quite a few that are unset that I'm just too lazy to upload or other rings that I sold as well but I'm not counting.

My little emerald pendant my beau gave me.

I love your entire collection so much & love love that dumortierite! Your collection is so specific to you and each stone is so scrumptious!

Please let me know if for some reason you never get around to setting her & would like to let her go. I'd slap her in a bezel and enjoy looking at that inner world!

Cabs are so delicious and timeless! I've searched for and perused through PS cab threads many times. Thank you for starting this new one Adam95, my eyes have been blessed.

Luckily I just received a little vintage moonstone ring in the post today, so I hope to share some pictures this weekend once I've given it a clean. I'll also dig out my other antique pieces that have cabs.

Keep the photos coming please! :kiss2:

I LOVE moonstone! When you have complete colorlessness giving way to a cosmic blue sheen...it's magic, I tell ya! Magic!
