I recently spent half a day at the Baton Rouge Gem & Mineral Show. These events are such fun for those of us who love looking at gems!
So many beautiful stones; do you have a favorite gemstone for jewelry? Malachite with its rich green swirl? Jade with a hint of the orient? Lapis lazuli? Onyx? Maybe quartz or even rose quartz? The beautiful lavender/purple shades of amethyst?
It seems that the most popular gemstones for jewelry are black onyx and pearls (not sure pearls are actually gemstones....), which makes sense - black and white with sterling silver jewelry are so classic and easy to wear with almost everything in your closet.
