Hi Gentlemen form around the world,

Anyone collecting gemstones here?

There are many varieties of gemstone like diamond, sapphire, ruby, emerald, amethyst, opal, garnet, topaz, etc.

For example (from my collection):

Bintang Republik Indonesia with Blue Sapphire Ring:

In some culture, there's even some beliefs that stone can carry certain meaning and effect like health, good or bad luck, and fortune according to someone's birth month.

Good subject Windu. I hope other members will be able to show examples of both stones and mountings.

These days they will be mainly from jewellery - and personally, I think it makes a stone more interesting

to show-it being worn. Look forward to some good examples.

By the way Windu - what's this with 'selfies' and your girl friend on the Comp. ? Results should be out soon. Mervyn

Yes but I keep my collection of raw gems stones (part of the geological collection) here locked away deep in the catacombs under the Home Office, guarded by my dragon and corps of Amazons.

By the way, the whole collection will be coming up for sale in 2015. I'm keeping the dragon and Amazons though. ;)

Regards

Brian

Thank you Mervyn, the gemstone fever is happening in my country. I'm a victim of it.. :P

I don't know if members here are also wear ring with gemstone (aside from the "sorry-i-am-not-single-anymore-ring").

She's one of my bestfriend, I met her in a violin community (I don't know if girlfriend is a right term, hehe). We do some crazy things together.. :D

Let's see the result. I'm happy participating on the competition. It's an annual moment to show more personal things and taste of the members here.

Oo Brian, I'm interested in your Dragon, how many do you have? I can pay 50 gold coins for a pair.. :P

Sorry, dragons are solitary therefore only one per own and not for sale. I could let you have a couple of Amazon guards, it would quickly help you know if the term "girlfriend" was correct for that best friend you mentioned. :whistle:

Great topic aesthetically and intrinsically 

I'm partial to diamonds and sapphire. Here's example 1; attached to my girl's finger. Natural yellow center with yellow and clear accents on the halo, baguettes along the shank. Local jeweler friend custom made to a design I made.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
