What is your favorite gem stone?
I like anything purple, blue or pink.
Blue Sapphires, and rose quartz.
I love lots of different gemstones, but as to a favorite I’d have to say a beautiful ceylon blue sapphire of substantial size. It’s my birthstone and I don’t own one and can’t afford that quality anymore.
Others are red Rubellite, Morganite, Aquamarine, Spinel (black, pinkish and red).
Opals; always opals. I love them.
i could not possibly choose! lately i’ve been going cukoo cukoo for the pinks- sapphires, rubelites, kyanites and morganite…… drool :catembarrassed:
For me it’s Emeralds….their exotic green hue and, it’s depth in composition just fascinate me. I’ve also become a fan of Chrome Diopside, which are just as beautiful in color and vibrancy as emeralds. They’re alot more delicate and only rate about a 6 in the hardness scale, but they’re super affordable for now.
Black Spinel is another gemstone fast becoming one of my favorites. They fool even the most experienced in brilliance and sparkle. Mystic Topaz is just so psychedelic and colorful it makes me happy. Like anyone diamonds will always be a favorite, especially cognac colored.
A good quality, decent sized Paraiba tourmaline. They’re a spectacular teal blue, far greater in beauty than a good neon apatite. Years ago I could have picked one up for a little over $300; now they’re $10,000. (Teal blue is my favorite color). Saw some teal diamonds on Etsy, but I didn’t quite know what to think.
Would love to have a good, fiery black opal, or a beautifully colorful “fireworks” patterned gem opal.
Would also love to have a good untreated Kashmir blue sapphire, royal blue and silky, as well as a nice Padparasha (sp.?) sapphire (my birthstone).
My taste exceeds my budget– I’ve found my best stones, reasonably priced, in a good college town rock shop that does a lot of custom and repair work.
This is easy….

Diamonds , I really have my heart set on a chocolate diamond , someday .
My second favorite is sapphires, then rubies .
Diamonds, Sapphires & Amethysts!!!
Oh diamonds………………..:heart: Then Sapphire, Topaz and Amethyst.
Diamonds of course! And not those itty bitty ones either! But I also love most of the colors of Blue Topaz, Rose Quartz and Black Onyx. And I love lots more too. But I can’t say I have a really favorite “one”.
Jewelry has to go with my mood and my clothes. I guess it’s good I have a lot of jewelry so I have plenty to choose from to do my matching because today’s favorite will probably not be tomorrows favorite.
But for me, jewelry definitely has to match your clothes in color and style!
I like malachite, the green with waves in it, from Madagascar.
