I think emerald is so stricking, bold, and beautiful. I’d love a pair of earrings with matching ring. 

Loved these earrings that Jolie wore.


Also, I love wearing a lot of black, white, and purple which I think emerald would look amazing with.

Aside from rubies, I absolutely love emeralds.  The color is so striking to me.

Definitely emeralds. My favorite color is green, my eyes are green, my favorite movie is the Wizard of Oz, and I love the musical Wicked (as in, I spend any extra money I have to see it multiple times when it’s in a city near me).

This thread needs more gemstone porn!!!

@Anardana:  Spinels do come in lots of colors. The most expensive and sought after is red. Thru-out history, they have been mistaken for rubies. They are magnesium aluminum, not corundum. They’re actually in the crown jewels! Hardness is 8, so a little more fragile than corundum, but not by much. Here’s my black ones.

I am tsavorite garnet girl. I love all garnets really.

I am also a big fan of spinel. I have a set of colbalt blue ones that would rival the most beautiful Kashmir sapphire.

Besides diamonds, my favourites are blue sapphires (they are gorgeous, and my birthstone is sapphire) and amethysts (purple is my favourite colour!)

Purple sapphire and Amethysts because I LOVE purple. But I love green garnet (my BS) and blue sapphires too.

I even have purple amethysts in my wedding band:

Sapphire hands down!  It is my birth stone and blue is my favorite color.  I almost considered getting a sapphire/diamond wedding ring.

I love Alexandrite- real, natural, Russian Alexandrite.  So beautiful and extremely rare!  Appears to change colors.  I have a lab grown one (that I put into) in DH’s ring.

I also love Montana sapphires because we used to live there and my part of my soul is still there, but I have some sapphires DH found in the mountains there.
