    These are beautiful!

    You have: Tanzanite, which is set in white gold. Diamonds are H color and I2. It does not say the grade of the tanzanite, which is about 2 carats. The price is $1,499.00  and shipping is free. I’m going to guess the tanzanite is at least AAA. But it’s hard to tell because the photo looks darker, and the website photo looks lighter. See this chart for more info:

    Next up is morganite for $899

    It’s about 1.80 carats and is set in rose gold. The diamonds are H and i2. I feel like you see the halo more with this one. Like the tanzanite, it has two rows of bead-set diamond and one row of channel-set, larger diamonds between.

    Next up is garnet for $899.

    If you get a nice red with the garnet, it can remind you of ruby. This is a rhodolite garnet, and it’s big at 2.25 carats. It will have a neat purpley red color and sometimes will exhibit color shift in different lights.

    Finally, we have aquamarine. It is soo soo rare to have an aquamarine with good color. Love in this in yellow gold, because it highlights the blue. The aquamarine is 1.80 carats. Aquamarine is pleochroic, so you’ll see different shades of color depending on how you turn the stone.

    For reference, this is what an aquamarine can look like. Notice the vivid blues that remind one of treated topaz. Topaz is treated to imitate aquamarine, but the heavy irradiation is often done on stones that aren’t super clear, so I think treated topaz tends to be a little muddy in the darker colors. But when you see how bright and sparkly an aquamarine is (a member of the beryl family, and it’s almost always eye-clean) and how they tend to have a greenish tint, like the sea, they don’t really compare to topaz.

    Light, greenish blue

    At first, I wasn’t into this design because it reminds me of a “class ring” again – but then I saw the picture on top and it looks very classy as a middle finger ring! :peace:

    All 4 gemstone options look pretty to me but I’m a little concerned that the Aquamarine and the Morganite may be too light in person because of the lighting in their various product photos and videos :

    Morganite: Nice here

    Morganite: Too light here

    The aqua is definitely light. But sometimes with aquamarine these days, you have to use your imagination to see the blue. I think this has it, although it is pale.

    And you’re right about the morganite. It could also be light.

    That’s your cue, Host Michelle, to flash that morganite you picked up from Rocks to show them how it’s done!
