It’s from a reputable store in Singapore and certified so I know it’s A jade for sure. Re: origin, it was stated as Burmese on the website but there is no way for me to verify since my local lab does not certify jadeite origin.

Example here:

It’s stunningly beautiful, and it looks exactly like Guatemalan jadeite. The quality is top notch, but I do wonder about the true origin. In any case, enjoy! It’s lovely.

Switched out my rings at the bank today and took out my diamond/gold 2ct medium dark tsavorite and green diamond with faint side pinks three stone rose gold/diamond melee ring.

Excuse the violet spinel shot, that’s one of my fav gems.

The tsavorite always looks forest green in photos, but it’s a brighter green IRL.

Tourmaline ring, diamond bracelet and jadeite bangle

Attractive tourmaline, @icy_jade! I'm digging this color lately and went to try this ring. It closed up quite often but I love that "eerie glow" under the right light conditions. Yours looks brighter and has a better cut.

I only posted pics that had the neon flashes in my earlier post. But yes indicolite can be dark and unattractive so take your time to find the right one.

You can see how it looks like without neon flash:

Yes, I remember your post and it was very helpful. Thanks. Would you say that your emerald is more consistent?

Yes, especially in certain lighting where tourmaline looks “flat”, then the emerald certainly looks better.

Yeah, I reckon. Thanks.

This tourmaline earring is exquisitely made by Vram but... totally black out! @T L, want to set your elongate cut tourmaline like this? Yours looks bright.

No, my tourmaline doesn’t black out at all. It can shift from slightly more green to more blue though depending on the lighting. See below. That’s an interesting design.

I did say that yours looks bright above, lol.

You need to set that baby! It’s shorter in length and won’t rub up against your face like that of the Vram. I love that earring.

It needs a custom setting which I cannot justify getting at this time. Tuition payments are more pressing right now, but thanks for the compliment. I wish I could set it with mocha diamonds, which I think will really make the stone pop.

Just got this delivered by UPS: lavender jade ladybug ring. Seller was super lovely and I thought this was such a steal. Also my cat jadeite bracelet. Reminds me of my baby who sleeps in this position all day, every day.

This looks familiar :) Did you buy this from a Singapore based vendor?
