@Bunny_the_Bride:  I love amber too!  I have a few pieces of it, but my dream is to have a piece of amber with an insect still inside of it.  I have no idea why…possibly because it reminds me of Jurassic Park or possibly because I’m weird.

My recent obsession has been green amethyst.  I bought some green amethyst studs on a whim a few months ago and they are quickly becoming my go-to studs.  I love the color!

@LeSpice:  Yeah, it really just depends on the seller. This stone turned out fab and is the real deal (I took it and had a jeweler inspect it to be safe). I did buy a topaz ring for my mom once that turned her finger green though 🙁 So you never really know….

Usually though, “you get what you pay for” holds true.

Stuff I have that I’m obsessed with: Carribean topaz. It’s like Magic topaz, but it’s blue/green color change. I have a 2ct earring and 5ct pendant set from St Lucia that was only $85!

Stuff I don’t have: Peach sapphire, morganite, emeralds (my life-long love!)

Emeralds, but only the real expensive quality ones, not the more opaque ones, and padparascha sapphire. There’s a Bee on here that has an amazing pad saphhire engagement ring that I die over.  And diamonds will al ways be my first loves.

I have a ruby engagement ring and I love it.

I love deep red rubies. I also love peach champagne sapphires, london blue topaz, pink tourmaline, and pretty much any other kind of gemstone really. What’s not to love?

@Arshim:  Oh yes, how could I forget about paraiba tourmaline! That ring has got to be the most stunning ring I’ve ever seen. Leon Mege is an incredible artist.

@lavenderstone:  Ooh, I love padparadscha sapphires too. So many pretty things to choose from! I think I missed my calling as a gemologist!
