Yellow beryl for bezel ering?

Barry's checking on the depth of a pale yellow beryl for me that might cut to fit my bezel ering. Is beryl a good one to use? I don't see much of it on here..tho I know there are a few, I'm being pulled 27 different directions currently and am too lazy to search, so I thought I'd get thoughts.

I'm looking at a pale yellow grossular garnet too. It's really pretty, however my concern is that I've been a bit spoiled by the cushion cutting of one Mr. Bridgestock. I've pictures of the garnet but honestly, it was the least cooperative stone ever. Worse than the neon purple supernova. It's sparkly and pale, very very similar to my round chryso from Barry.

Back in a bit w/garnet pics too but have to get Thing1 from school and wanted to ask about the beryl first.

Aren't beryls, like emeralds, a little brittle for rings? Would this be an everyday e-ring?

Not everyday, no. Even still, I don't want to have to baby the thing like crazy either. I only wear my rings when I go someplace, not ever cleaning or yardwork or anything.

last ones. the ones that show brown were under the trees on the railroad ties. the ones that have greenish were in the bathroom light-I think those are the "sunlight" bulbs or whatever that have a blue tint to them.

Can you take a pic with the ering AND the stone?

This is almost the exact color of the room I grew up in. Light buttery yellow...

Oh duh, I didn't think to do that. I had it in the ring holder thing and wore it w/my ering but didn't think to do pictures.

Same color as my bedroom growing up too!

Dang !!!!
I had a light yellow bedroom too !
Maybe that was the only color they had back in those days .....
(I am speaking for myself !!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: )

Anyway, I really like the color and cut of your stone !
I am a bit confused, however ( *perhaps due to the Whiskey Sour* )
That's the Garnet you are showing pictures of, ya?

I would love to see the color of the Beryl....
Just to be able to choose, choice is good.... :sun:

Shiney you make me smile~

No pics of the beryl..I think it's just rough he was measuring to see if it would work. I think I'm going to nix the beryl tho. I think a garnet would be sparklier and prettier.

A lot of yellow beryl is irradiated, not sure if that's a concern to you or not.

They're not full of fissures and cracks like emeralds are though. They're around a 7 on the hardness scale. Not good for everyday wear, but will hold up to moderate wear, if you're careful.

I didn't realize that about yellow beryls, TL, thanks for the heads up! For just a whatever ring I wouldn't care if it was a pretty color but for this ring, I don't want that.

Freke told me the lower RI would make it less sparkly than the garnet so I think I'm going to rethink the beryl.
