I love morganite because it is such a beautiful soft pink and because my wife’s name is Morgan.

I love opals because they look like something a mermaid would wear.

I love moissanite because it is incredibly sparkly and moody. I also love its scientific background.

I love pearls – if that counts – because they are my birthstone. Emeralds are my sister’s birth stones and I love them and rubies are my mom’s birth stones and I love them. The majority of my exposure to different gems is just the different birthstones in my family. I have recently fallen in love with opals after buying my mom an opal ring for her birthday.

I love fancy colored sapphires, especially padparadscha, pinks and peaches.

I also love tourmalines. Paraiba and rubellite are my favorites.

Amethyst is another favorite. I love purple and it’s DH’s birthstone which makes it even more special. I have a little amethyst geode that I got as a kid. I’d love to have a big one to display one day.

I love diamonds, especially antique cuts. I really love their gorgeous sparkle.

I recently fell in love with turquoise. Turquoise from the Dry Creek and Number 8 mines as well as Tibetan turquoise are a few of my favorites.

I love peach and padparadscha sapphires, because they are very durable stones and the colours are to DIE for!

I also like morganite too 🙂

@Eight6Eleven:  I love those earrings!

I have a lot of favorites:

Sapphire-love all the different blue colors and peachy pink is one of my new favs

Moissanite- never seen anything so sparkly in my life, swoon

London blue topaz- Such beautiful color

Clear and Blue Diamond-the steeliness and depth of clear diamonds and blue-greenish color of blue diamond is so beautiful

Tanzanite and Iolite – the purple blue color is just soooo pretty in both these stones

Emerald- green is one of my favorite colors

Alexandrite-I think it is so cool that it changes into TWO different beautiful colors depending on the light

Pearls- Although not technically a gemstone, I  love how lustrous they are and how they feel warm after you have been wearing them for a while

Rubies, Aquamarine, Amethyst, Garnet, Morganite….I could go on. I love them all actually. I want to buy one of each and then put them in a satchel that I carry around then shine a flashlight on them occasionally…my precious lol

@Anardana:  You did that’s awesome! Idk you could even find it without mining or something. Me too, I’m 25 and I still collect rocks when I am outside, any time I see some quartz or something shiny gotta pick it up.

For some reason, I really love garnet. In a white gold or silver setting. Looks sharp with little diamonds on the side too!

Omgsh, I LOVE gemstones. I love mystic topaz, theres so many types. Favorite of them are Luminous Star and Mercury. But I love pretty much all of them. I also love blue topaz. So I’d say as a whole, topaz is my favorite.

I also love alexandrite (which is one of my birthstones) but I like the more purpley ones than the brown/green ones.

I love opal. Again, theres so many types of it. I love almost every opal I’ve ever seen, except the black ones. They’re sorta plain to me.

Morganite is one of my new loves. Looks amazing in rose gold, but its also really pretty in silver.

Tanzanite is gorgeous, but I prefer the more purpley ones than the blue.

Apatite! I almost forgot that one. SOOOO pretty.

I could go on and on.

I love Emeralds, and all the pale pastel Sapphires – they have a really watery quality that’s so pretty. Grey and black diamonds (my e-ring is a black diamond). I also absolutely love lapis lazuli, hematite and koroit opals:

I adore Sapphires, especially teal Montana Sapphires
