I did soemthing terably frivolus.  I spent about $50 on compleatly usless thigns.  To be precise lose gemstones.  I'm a TOTAL magpie so if I see something shiny... yeah.  I got a matched set of red spinel (in a round brillant cut) a Mexcan fire opil (also round brilant) and an emrald cut ruby also a "grab bag" of just over 1 ct (1.2 ct) of mixed ruby emrald tanzinite and saphire (this came from Lawence KS) I am very happy with my sparkley things and now need to get them set (hah I will never get them set I never get anythign set)

I am such a girl.

I love lose peices - I'm not a huge fan of my engagment ring (but I'm not a huge fan of dimonds and it's too delicat to ware at my work) I do love rubies becasue not only are teh lovely on the outside they seam to have a life that other gems don't - like an inner fire. And it dosn't hurt that they are my birthstones (and Jared's too - we are lovely outside but real firecrackers inside)

Aqua is a lovely stone! You just never see any of quality around. Aqua was once common in engagment rings becasue it represents long lasting love and it can be cut to have many of the same refractory patterns of a dimond (if you like clear stones) I have to admit I'm a bit of a fan of Heleotrope what they are selling now as 'canary aqua'

well it comes in all sorts of colors - or maybe tones is better but mostly light blues and greens - and of course colorless. My grandnothers engagment ring was aqua someone stol it and she spent the rest of her life saying "I hope he tryied to pawn it - must have gotten $30 for it!"

When it come to the semi precious stones peopel don't htink about how ot present the stones - cut and setting and what not - and they get cut into these cuts that don't suite the stones at all liek you see Aaua in all these square cuts when they need a more brillant cut to let it - I don't know - shine a bit...wow I'm being dorky

I spent a lot of time learign about gems and the meanings of gems and what not when I was in high school.

I'd have to look but I could tell you waht your alternat bith stone is and we can see if you like that better - Like July we have Ruby and onix and then my astlogical sign is Moonstone or Pearl (lovly now I have this image of Jared in a pearl neclace...)
