    I wonder how much a handmade custom copy would cost… say by an artist on Etsy? :please:

    I know someone on my Facebook and she paints, not bad. I am trying to get her to do one of Chico and myself.

    Oh You mean a ring, a fake double?   Who knows?   I knew someone that did that. She kept the “real stuff” in a safe and wore the fakes.  Her son was big into gold ,actually he was just big, 7’3 or so. I remember turning around to shake his hand and shook his knee instead.  But anyway, he had a lot of Gold coins and when gold hit $1800 or so an ounce he sold them and bought a Island  near Belize or however you spell it.  This guy had to duck to get in and out of the house.

    Since that ring is gold, old looking diamonds (? hahaha but I actually think it’s prettier, vintage-ier this way) and peridot … I was thinking copying this design in the same material :teehee:

    I really like emerald cut – it makes the gemstone elegant  :please:

    Here’s a smokey quartz that I really really like! I love chocolate  :eatchoco:

    Here is a modern, luxe looking design in Black Spinel …

    Checkered rectangular cushion cut seems instantly make the gemstone look richer :teehee:

    Here’s a Green Amethyst that looks like a Prasolite…

     

     

    London Blue Topaz…

    Lemon Quartz…

    Smokey Quartz is my least favorite Gem Stone , with white Topaz right behind that.

    We’ll never fight over gemstones then – since I love Tanz and like Smokey Quartz – and they are on your blah list :lol2:

    I don’t dislike Tanzanite, but it is my least favorite blue Gem Stone.

    I have some nice Smokey Quartz Jewelry, but I got them for the Gold.

    My biggest Gem Stones in Jewelry that I have are Smokey Quartz, Lab Ruby, and Traditional Garnet.

    Any goldsmith, and there are many in NYC, can do that. They may even know where to get one that’s very very similar.

    I think that would mean Rounds hold their value better. I think most engagement rings are Round and I think that still holds today, even though things are a changing. I put this question to some experts , but not from GIA and I should hear from them soon. I also have gem stone cutters I am following on Twitter I can ask.

    Right, if shape were why a stone is valuable. It isn’t. A round stone is more because it cost more in the first place. But it certainly isn’t more valuable just because it’s round.

     

    Well ‘Linda” will shed light on the subject. She was the #1 student in class at GIA in 2005 . Jewelry professional certificate. GIA certification in Pearls, Color Gem Stones , and Diamonds. I emailed her with the question. I also know that the Precious Metals Brokerage House I use sells Diamonds as an investment and they sell Rounds. So, I believe we all are correct.

    Linda (Miss GIA) got back to me and I sent email to Michelle #1 for confirmation. She said a Round maintains value better than an Oval, as we thought. So, the host got this one wrong.

    I am watching JTV Vault Show right now and will report on what I see. They had more Gem stones than three. The host got that wrong too. However, she usually spot on

    That’s because I’d bet neither one of them are perfectly correct. Availability, size, color, and clarity also affect a gemstone’s value over time.

    Like this:

    Sold for $71 million. It’s not round. But it has the other attributes: rarity of color, size, clarity.  You can’t ignore those things and say a certain cut holds value over other cuts just because. It just doesn’t seem to make sense.

    $65 million. Also not round.
