    mellow likes to soak her jade in blueberries, so you might want to try a blueberry cobbler. :lol-2:

    Thank you. That has gotten the most nods among my new stuff irl :)

    Need to check if I have enough pieces left for a ring to match it.

    The camera does not like photographing the fluorescence if I'm shining the black light directly on the ring... so it's not even glowing as intensely as it could be since the black light is shining way off to the side.

    Red and white for me today to mark Singapore's National Day. The bangle has green streaks but I turned it to the white side.

    Dreamy pattern - so close to 'ink in water' which is so telling of the 'water' quality of the jadeite - or so I think!

    I tend to post a bit of my junk here: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/specific-gravity-of-grade-b-jadeite.243863/page-73

    I think I did not speak much about this rubellite ring and another rubellite ring because I bought it at a difficult time when we had just been burgled and I had been very blue. The rubellites have been certified by GIA.

    I have been told to wear red this year because it is the year of the pig and the red would help pave the way to a better 2020 (I don't believe in all that but I do wear my reds more subconsciously and today being National Day.......). So here I am, in one of my reds. There is a smudge on the rubellite. I must have been eating too many pineapple tarts and snacks and stuck my hand in the jar one too many times.......

    I’ve never looked at that thread before - thought it looked too technical but it seems to have morphed into something else. :D It’s stunning did you have it designed? I couldn’t see anything in the thread but I only looked from where you had linked, will start going through it properly in a bit.

    ohhh, 75 pages. In short don't overpay for Jadeite, avoid YY and Jasmine Jadiete (that's been my very bad experience but different people may have different views), and there are very good Live shows on Facebook by other vendors that you can buy good legit jadeite from. I will post when I have time.

    I love your emerald marble!!!:kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2::kiss2:.

    What a fabulous rubellite, until I read your second post I thought for sure it was a humongous ruby!!!

    That bangle is to die for too, what a great combination for Singapore National Day and to eat cake! =)2

    Thanks! Just realized I didn’t say what it is. :lol:
    3.3 ct Burmese spinel. GIA certed as red. With wonky cut and slight window. Not PS standard.

    Yeah was thinking about the setting but shall see what the HK setters have next time they are in town. Something halo since I love halo. What is “TTL 大大理颗 diamonds ”? :confused:

    Do you plan to have a thread for the rubellite? So big and so woah! :love: I can’t carry off such big rings so shall admire yours and @prs big big rings for now... :kiss2:
