Comment: From the same rough and custom-cut as this single cab and with the same history. If unique gems and bespoke jewelry designs are your field, please also read the comment under the single gem (I skip it here to avoid repetitions). This matching pair could make dazzling earrings, an airy miracle demanding many closer looks to catch 'what's-going-on', other than 'pretty-glitter'. Again, I would suggest a halo of diamonds around a closed bezel set in white gold. 'Closed' casing will catch the icy blue inside the dome and let it play on the surface (an effect that gets lost not only in our hand-shot below). Either as studs or with dangling motion. Nothing of the kind has been done, ever. Why? Because, normaly clean aquamarines are facetted not worked into cabs; but the day belongs to the daring. See 'more images' with different directions and back-grounds snatching more and less blue and green, bundling it here, dispersing it there, effects impossible to capture on still images. Here, too, the AIGS images on the report cards are in some ways better than our own images.
P.S.: Yes, we SHOULD start making vids, but with 1500 gems online it is a big project for a small outfit. In cheap-labor countries, it could be done for under $10k, but in good old Europe where nobody cleans his nose for less than 75 euro/hour we need an IPO to finance all videos. Drop me a line if you have a less than obvious idea including security and logistics. Perhaps crowd sourcing an idea helps?
