HELP ME: Cant decide which gemstone (too many options)
Hi ladies,

So I'm sure you are all sick of my polls, but I'm going to ask anyway because i really need some help deciding what gemstone I'm going to go with for my gemstone anniversary ring.
I've cut down the shortlist from about 20 options to 9 options but i've not been able to decide beyond this.
I would really like to hear which stone you like best and why.
First world problems: i just dont know which gem I should use for my ring!! (This is also a good distraction for me while I'm stuck preggo on the couch)

Option 1# - Green tourmaline - Precision gems (3.18cts)
Sparkly eye candy found at thefacetlounge.com!

Option 2# - Blue/green tourmaline - Rough 2 Refined gems (1.69cts)
Sparkly eye candy found at thefacetlounge.com!

I like 2 and 8!! I'd like to see better photos it 2 though! If you're going with a square shape for 8 then you won't get the elongated look in some of your inspiration photos! I really love the bezel one, but like the last one too! The last one reminds me of my emerald ring Smile

RE: HELP ME: Cant decide which gemstone (too many options)
I would say no to 3,5,6,7
3. Bad cut, cloudy
5. Not as nice as precision. Small, funky color
6. Will black out
7. Step cuts in forums are hard, not a lot of sparkle. Color looks meh.

I love the precision cut stones, he is amazing. 4 is a great stone, I'd ask for a picture on hand to make sure it doesn't get too dark. The blue green is my favorite color but seems small? I love lab emeralds, but you said you want a mined stone, you should not buy a stone that will not make you completely happy.

Can you find a copper bearing green tourmaline? That would have the glow of columbian emeralds

Caveats: I have a spess with black flashes, it's precision cut and amazing saturation, it's a sacrifice I'm happy to make.

I like 9 the most. Something about the color is what gets me. After that, I like #8 for color and cut. In third place for me is #2. The color is so unique.

1, 2, or 9. But 2 is a bit small I think.

I actually like a natural stone and love #1 because his cutting is so great.
