    Oh gosh, I couldn't choose, I love them all. However, I never cared for opals at all until I was at Tiffany's in New York & saw GOOD ones, and was amazed. I guess I had only seen cheapie ones all my life. The ones at Tiffany's look like the pictures that moomies posted, just gorgeous.

    I adore sapphires, emeralds, amethysts, rubies... I don't care for garnets. Oh, and I love aquamarines....

    A lady I know has a green diamond. It's very striking. It's a deep green like an emerald, but for some reason it doesn't look exactly like an emerald.

    Gawd, I was wearing an amethyst ring one day, and this woman (a stranger) asked me if it was a "purple ice." I guess she watched home shopping network way too much.

    Thank you! Arwen has been a favorite of mine since I was 14, and I totally approved of Liv Tyler playing the part.

    Never turn any of them down! I would hate to have to choose just one,although diamonds will always match. like-when you are not sure your outfit is all that great, just throw on some more.

    My birthstone is a diamond, but I think they are boring too. I would love to have a fancy coloured diamond. Like a deep blue/green/gray or a chameleon.

    That's funny because I too love opals (colored in particular) and my birthstone is actually peridot. I don't MIND peridot but I don't EVER wear green so it's hard for me to wear the peridot jewelry I have that people buy me.

    PS: Opals are only unlucky if the you buy them for yourself and your birthday isn't in October. If someone else buys it for you it's okay. Also, I don't think it counts if you consider fake opals (which most of my opal jewelry is lab created so it's fine with me!).


    I absolutely love, love, love...diamonds.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    I love peridot, it's such a lovely color, imo.
    I heard (somewhere.... as usual ) that this was started by the owners of the opal mines to stop the miners stealing the opals..... isn't that funny?

    I love garents & pearls due to the contract with my skin (coz I have no colour except that of a dead fish), but my engagement ring is 12 diamonds & they sparkle like mad! I've never liked diamonds before! Mr Novice insisted...
    I prefer coloured stones tho, and I have a passion for pearls. I buy mine from an indian place off the internet & have got both fab deals & amazing product!

    Tanzanite is also quite a beauty. I like its varying shades and hues of blue.




    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    I love sparkly things; I most definitely love the color of tanzanite. One thing I really really want is a black star sapphire.

    I absolutely love tanzanite (deep purplish blue). I got my first one on a trip to St. Thomas and I've been hooked ever since. I also love citrine and peridot.
