I went to a Gem show this weekend. One of my friends got me into the wholesale area whereupon I stumbled across a strand of sapphires- actual, honest-to-god strands of blue corundum- for $20. Now, they're not hardcore transparent gem quality but they're beautiful. I made a necklace (for me!) using some sterling silver daisy spacers and some white freshwater pearls I had lying around.

Bruce was baffled as to why I wasn't planning on selling it for $200 but I wanted it. These pictures do not even begin to capture the sparkle those facets impart.







Oh, and just so you know:

I'm wearing a hemalyke star illusion necklace and my dangerous boots.
