Move over pendant idea - sorta purple moissy!
Some of you may know I've been looking for a pinky browny stone to put in a pendant. Welllll.... unfortunately my sparkly path got crossed with some of you all who are waiting on the purpley moissy and I got my hands on a really fabulous Barry Bridestock tourmaline that is a complete pink/purple color shifter with brown undertones.

This is possibly the hardest stone to photograph - EVER! It shifts from HOT pink to a strong lilac/purple. It's the classic BB cushion cut, so sparkles are thrown off everywhere. I love his cuts, I can just never find the color I like (last time I got one it was too pinky orange!)

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this - thoughts?

You can see all the colors in this photo

The pink here is not reflecting off my jacket - the stone is actually a bright pink - just can't get the photo right

Ugh, I don't know what I want to do! I don't really wear purple at all...so it might be weird.

Jcent - that Halo is really pretty. I think you are right that to be worn as a pendant this should be halo'd. I actually think it would look best as a simple solitaire with a diamond band...but I don't need that!! haha.

BMV - it's not actually dark. I don't know if you've seen a BB cut stone, but they reflect SO MUCH back at the camera...it's really hard to get a photo of the color. I have like 30 pictures of a "white" stone.

I didn't mean that it was dark, I love it Smile I would make it a pendant because that's what you wanted originally (I think?). But yea I agree with Jenn, halol'ing it would be da bomb!

I like solitaire colored stones too...so I know where you're coming from on that end... Maybe keep it a little longer and play with it some more, and see where it takes you!

jenn, if the Bella didn't work out, I was thinking my next attempt would be recreating that ring.
