    Picked these up unexpectedly on a detour on our way to our little weekend get away. We went to a geology and mineral museum on a whim and they had simple handmade 14k/SS earrings with different precious gemstones and they were strangely low in price...like very low in price.

    After looking at all they offered, scouring many tanzanite cab dangles and diamond studs I saw these bright blue green gems (the only ones there) shouting at me and immediately thought "Emeralds?! Here?!" And oddly enough they ended up being 5mm Columbian emeralds set in sterling silver prong studs. They were only $70 and I couldn't resist! I only own emeralds in rings but after wearing these all weekend I must say that emeralds are beautiful on the ears especially on brunette or auburn hair shades.
    They're not amazing quality but for their size and clarity they sure are worth more than what I paid. Theyre so understated yet the color of them adds such glamour.

    I wore my blue cuprian 13 ct tourmaline today. It’s not neon, but it’s interesting and has some typical needle inclusions.

    Cheating bc this isn't mine, but had fun window shopping at one of the local Jewelers yesterday. 20190619_143410.jpg 20190619_143415.jpg

    Love this lighter color of emerald!

    OMG how cute @lovedogs

    Any chance you know how big the stone was? Asking because I am obsessing over that damn pad and I want to know all about small and mighty stones.

    PS I haven't ignored your request for more pics of the tourmaline! I just need to wear it! Been freezing so I look like I died several times over and live in a cave.

    Aww no worries! The stone is 1ct. Obviously going in there made me strangely like small stones! Who am I, and where did my normal huge bling loving self go?!?! :lol:

    I almost bought it bc it was $995! But realized it wouldn't get enough wear

    This is an aqua looking paraiba, and your stone came to mind. I love the pale pink melee around this stone, and I thought of your heart. I think it would look superb in a similar frame. Anyway, this really isn’t a thread to discuss setting the stone, I just saw this and wanted to put it out there before I forgot. Your aquas are so pretty!! Mom did great!

    @Stone Hunter this is SO lovely! I recently bought an antique setting that's quite similiar. This style accentuates the center stone so well!

    Found myself in another gas line at Costco...

    Edit: another one inside Costco. My eyes see a vivid red, but the phone camera isn't up to the task of capturing its true color.
