Well folks, ask and you shall receive.

Without further ado, here are pics of my burgeoning colored stone collection (and some fun ones of my ering too!).

The Twins: 2 green Tourmalines-1.5ct and 2.0 ct oval, one more included than the other, both 7 x 9mm
My birthday present: Imperial Malaya Garnet 1.27 ct pear 7.38 x 5.88 mm
My ebay steal: Acquamarine 1.05 ct emeraldy-cushion cut (very elongated) 8 x 6 mm

I have no idea. I''m thinking of a bezel for the acqua and a halo w/ rose gold and pave for the pear. The tourms are still up in the air. My mother wants me to have earrings made, but there''s a setting I have my eye on as well.

Well robbing the museum certainly gave me a headstart TL! I''ve got to say that I also particularly liked the way the balaclava emphasized my eyes!
