Which Gemstone Is Your Favorite? - Page 2

post #31 of 52
Sapphires (my birthstone!), though I love tanzanite too. Most any bluish/purplish stone will make me happy.

I despise diamonds because I think they're ugly... no icky diamond engagment ring for me!

I love diamonds, emeralds (my birthstone) and rubies, but my favorite gemstone is the garnet. I just love the richness of their color.

I really like them all but garnet is one of my favorites.

I love rubies because they are my birthstone but I also like black opals.

Emeralds are my absolute favorite!!!! There's just something soo striking about them! I love them! I'm also a huge fan of diamonds, pearls, and sapphires as well

Tourmalines are cool, too. I have a ring that has a pink tourmaline stone in it, and I just love it!

Sapphires are my birthstone, too, and I do love them - they're just not my favorite.

When my Mom was here visiting last year, she had a ring that had a stone called a platinum topaz: it was sooo cool! I've tried to find one, but haven't had any success. I guess they're extremely rare..

I also love the black opals & fire opals (heck, ANY opal, for that matter!) I had the neatest pair of opal earrings once, but lost one of them, What a bummer..

I also love abalone jewelry - even though I realize abalone isn't a gemstone. Some of the moonstones are really cool, too - especially the multi-colored ones.

There aren't very many gems that I don't like! I am purposely avoiding the jewelry channel now that we have cable, b/c I know I'll just go nuts!

I love pink tourmaline (my other birthstone, besides opal). I love pink, and I love how it sparkles and shines. I don't really like opal though. And I lovvveee diamonds! I have a BEAUTIFUL one carat diamond that was my grandfather's. He got it from diamond mining in Belgium I think. My grandmother had it set into a single solitaire ring. I told my boyfriend he can propose to me with that, since it's something special and I'd rather him propose to me with something with sentimental value, then something he spent a lot of money on.

See - peridot is beautiful if you get a GOOD one - a lovely deep shade of new grass green! Most of the lower end ones don't have good color.

I am a gemstone GEEK! I have been interested since I was a little girl and helped purchase my first piece of jewelry from birthday money. I still have that pendant - a Victorian-era lavalier -- rose gold, amethyst and seed pearls.

I don't have a fave, tho' ruby is my birthstone. I only have a couple of small ones.

Citrine is the alternate stone for November, Graciecat and again, if you get a good one- golden or madeira, they are beautiful sunny golden orange or reddish brown.

My GF's birthstone is garnet, I think the dark/deep reds look really sharp. My mom's birthstone is emerald, my sister's is turquoise.

I'm really not that fond of precious gemstones. Sapphire is ok, I guess.
I really like the semi precious or even very regular stones... or anything that catches my eye. I like onyx in jewelry.

I have several abalone shells *looks left, right, and under desk* ...around here somewhere. Oh! I put them under DH's desk!

I have absolutely no idea what to do with them. If anyone has ideas that doesn't involve buying a bunch of expensive equipment to work them, I'm open to suggestions.

black opals are my favorite, altho i don't have any i also like diamonds, emeralds, garnets & amethysts [the last are also my birthstone].

Opals are my favorite, and theres an old wives tale that I like that says anyone who doesn't have an opal for a birthstone and wears one will have bad luck whenever they wear the ring! My mom borrowed it from me and she had bad luck, but that could just be a coicidence!
