I mentioned in my last thread that recent pricing for (Vietnamese) lavender spinel caused a bit of sticker shock for me. Now that I've pulled the plug on pursuing that stone, I've started planning to set my red spinel. While casually browsing designs, I was dazed by the price of this guy... The gem is phenomenal... no doubt about that. But $30k? We're approaching mid-range ruby pricing now. And that's not to say it isn't deserved. I forget how many times rarer fine red...

Is it just me, or are some of these pieces, with the exception of the huge pink sapphire ring, a bit too low?? This was an auction of the jewels of Red Skelton, Mary Tyler Moore, Barbara Sinatra and Tony Randall. I was shocked at how low that huge pear shaped diamond went for, and the emerald necklace ..read more

Hey there, I'm in a FB group where people, pros or not sell gemstones. A gemologist lady posted this Swiss Blue Topaz of 34 carats for 1800 USD which seemed... steep to me to say the least comsodering it isn't a fancy cut or anything I decided to look around online and found so many different price points on one site.

After lurking in this Pearls subforum for a few years, I’ve finally gotten round to buying my first “real” pearls! I went to the Hongqiao Pearl Market in Beijing, fully expecting to pick up a strand of chunky white Edisons, but walked out with baroque peacock Tahitians. Needless to say, I didn’t really *get* pearls until I saw the good stuff in person, especially Tahitians. First though, I wanted to provide a short review of Hongqiao Pearl Market in Beijing - and sorry, even though I was... Read more ..read more
