Sure. Pic 1 is on a bed of a north-facing room with windows and doors shut, at 11am of a sunny day.

Pic 2 and Pic 3 are what it looks like under a desk, in an east-facing room at around 11am of a sunny day.

So lovely. Have you thought of how to set this?

Yes, I always loved the setting of Acinom's sugar loaf paraiba cab. I am planning to borrow that design (while hoping that it's OK with Acinom). :)

Are you referring to this?

Yes, that's the one. :) I love the simple and elegant design, and I think it will suit my mostly casual wardrobe well. I have also considered making the setting fancy and big, such as a big halo, but I worry that too much bling on the setting may steal the thunder of the stone. So eventually I came to realize that Acinom's setting is my favorite.

Got my paraiba cabochon today from Paraiba International! It is so cute and I look forward to set it up as a convertible ring and necklace! Already have a design in mind but will wait until next year to do this. This photo was taken in the evening with indoor lights and the neon colour still shows! It looks like a candy :kiss2:

@Django0413 has set her marquise Paraiba in a stacking ring. What a gorgeous set!!! Congratulate her in her thread:
I have also added her stunning avatar ring pic.

A few of mine! Obviously top left (of the three stones) is just a photo from the internet but the rest are mine!

This is a horrible photo as this gem is far more blue in real life! No idea what the camera was doing.

So happy I can finally contribute to this thread: I bought a tiny paraiba and had it set into a rose gold pendant. I received it today and love the glow! Video still below, will try take better photos of it tomorrow!

I bought this huge 8ct paraiba online for cheap a few months ago. It came with a certificate which stated that it had minor oil. Is oiling common for paraibas, especially for bigger stones from Mozambique?

I think the inclusions are actually acceptable but I'd like to know you guys' thoughts ;-)

This one has been a long time coming! I bought this tourmaline from Gene a while ago and sat on it for a while. I had a setting custom made from China then had my jeweler set the pink melee stones and the main stones. It’s 14k rose gold with moissanite half moons. Hope you like it!

Like it?? I do not like it...
... I love it!!!
It’s stunning. Do you have a thread for it?
