    I know this is a thread for jewelry but I’m really enjoying our foray into furbaby town. I love all these little tiny faces. Those are some seriously cute babies you have there. :kiss2:

    You should start your own thread, voce :) I love seeing other people's projects and you have a great eye!

    Yvonne suggested alternating the demantoid and paraiba and I'm so glad she did! I would still consider making an all paraiba band in WG with slightly larger stones. Good luck finding a Jedi spinel :)

    I already have the spinel. I keep the box in my purse so I can look at it at work from time to time, or if I'm waiting at a Costco gas line. The top picture represents what I see most of the time. Sparkly and bright even indoors at night. The bottom picture shows you the inclusions. I was able to buy this at a reasonable price because of that surface-reaching inclusion. However, because it is not at the girdle, I think/hope the inclusion will not be an issue when setting the spinel. Note that the pictures are the vendor pictures; because I'm lazy, I can only muster the will to grab the camera on the weekends.

    Lol, I hope people notice those are the vendor's nails; I'm not good at maintaining mine.

    Not a great pic but I had fun wearing my star sapphire ring today. Seeing the star appear sparks joy. ;)2

    It's the weekend, it's 35 degree Celsius. So keeping it light and breezy with a mix of Hetian jade, Burmese jadeite, rose gold and yellow gold.

    Going to work today... here’s a cheer me up. Has anyone ever noticed that rubellite photographs darker than what you see? :confused: It could be my pasty skin.

    Thank you for your kind words. The chrome effect was an experiment to see if it’ll stick to SNS. It’s been good so far.

    Here is my blue for the day.

    @scouty_gems the way your furbaby was looking back at you, waiting for you, is adorable! I love the contrast between the sapphire and diamonds in your ring!:geek2:

    B6FEC0B8-D992-4E15-8A6D-7883CD37D1BD.jpeg My recently received (from the bottom of my mother’s safe) emerald and diamond ring. Old fashioned style but the emeralds are a great colour and the setting beautifully executed. I love it.
