my tourmaline from Ivy New York :)
I agree the third of the stone that isn't blacked out is indeed spectacular, Justin, could you perhaps share a better photo with us, I'd love to see that stone in all its colored glory!

Stacked a purple spinel with an apatite with my watermelon ring. Wore an Afghan tourmaline in middle finger, and my favorite spinel. The Afghan is included, but I’m not sure what that black spot in the middle is. There is no black spot in the stone???

@prs, that’s some of the nicest bezel work on your tourmaline ring. It’s also a protective setting, which is great, because tourmaline can be chippy. Nice stone.

I shall make a thread out of it...

An antique brooch with not-so-interesting center removed and replaced by a sapphire. Love the look!

ETA: where does one get a velvet necklace ribbon?I think a choker with this brooch on a black velvet would be nice.

With an enhancer bale your "brooch" would look fabulous on any necklace, and in particular a diamond necklace. If the velvet ribbon doesn't work out a simple white gold wheat or rope chain would look PDG.

To maintain a horizontal EW orientation, and when hanging on a ribbon or chain, I think it would need to be suspended from two points on either side of center. If it were suspended from a single point there's a danger it would hang at an angle to horizontal. Hung N/S those issue go away, but for sure it does look better E/W.

STUNNING! The diamonds really accent the blue of the sapphire.

Thank you, @Stone Hunter!

I bought two antique pieces. One is this one, and it has been done by Joseph Jewelry in a week or so.


The other one is a long-standing project, because me, I have no time to check on it, and my favorite jeweler has no time to make it! That one is a spinel in antique setting (a lucky fit) and on PP white pearl string.


Maybe I should bring it to JJ too.

@TL, gorgeous stones and remember how you once taught us? 3C’s of colored stones. Color, color, color. Your tourmaline is gorgeous. The other ones, too. I don’t see an inclusion.

Awww thank you @Arkteia,
You have a collection fit for a queen. Love that new broach and tsavorite pendant.

Her ruby is wonderful, but the spinel is redder than the ruby, and I think you got them confused.
I did get them confused. Thanks voce. Both beautiful.
