My sunset garnet in 14k YG. I love how the garnet blends with the gold.

Oops. Sorry, this isn't a sunset garnet; it's a Sri Lankan Imperial Hessonite Garnet. I just found the original order details from 2016. I didn't set the stone until this year.

Yes, spinel and chrysoberyl. Both are Tanzanian. Thank you!

What is finally set?

Both rings I’ve had for over ten years.

Thanks!!!
Yep, my bad. I've been staring at your cuprians too long while doing some reading on PS.

Have you set your violet one yet?

Is the purple color shifty?

No, the purple cuprian is still loose. It shifts from purple to bluish violet.

This spinel shifts from blue to violet. I prefer it to the cuprian because of the higher RI and finer luster, but they are similar in color, although the spinel can look very tanzanite like in artificial light.

Barry Bridgestock spess garnet in my pawn shop setting (I took out the OEC and illusion plate to set this stone). I was so sad to hear of Barry’s passing. He left us some beautiful treasures! Someday I may reset this in a more special setting.

My camera just doesn't do justice to the neon pink and red colors. There's a warmth that the camera doesn't pick up unless I modify the entire image.

I had a scare today when I dropped my sphene sunflower ring that went plink plink plinking across the floor before it came to a stop. Thank goodness the sphene was not damaged. IMG_20200921_121802.jpg IMG_20200921_121740.jpg IMG_20200921_121855.jpg

Hot pink tourmaline day for me, love how it shifts and almost glows so beautifully neon under the sun!

It’s pretty crazy how different tourmalines can shift colours, took a video when I first got the ring a few months back and it looked cool pink and the colours today looked more warm pink!
