Hi Chaz, I was at a jewellery auction viewing today (by chance) and a pair of emerald earrings found the way into my heart! I have never ever thought twice about colored jewels and all of a sudden....I want one of every color!!! You know, like in the lolly shops where you would get one of everything (10 cents used to buy so much.....)! Anyway, irl, I have no intensions of buying these.....but for about 10 minutes I was sure they had my name on them. They were columbian emeralds, 7 carats total, pear shaped, with diamond halos and small line of diamonds that they hung from. Est price over $10, 000....well I am allowed to dream!!!! What can you tell us about these stones from your vast knowledge? They were very princess like, and definately not fot every day! They looked so beautiful on that even my h. didnt growl at me for wanting them, but he asked to see them with a loupe! And thats saying alot!:okay:.
