Black and Blue


More new stock!  I have some absolutely gorgeous pale indigo rose cut tanzanite; very clean material and full of sparkle.  I know that there are some real tanzanite addicts out there, so this is a real treat!  Also new in is melanite in 4mm, 6mm and 10mm kind of rose cut.  What I mean by ‘kind of rose cut’ is that it is a cut that I see other people routinely describe as rose cut but which is a little less complex than my standard rose cuts.  My supplier calls it something like ‘upside down checker’ but I think that would create even more confusion!  It’s triangular facets, and they make a rose pattern, but just without the fancy flower that I normally have on my stones.  Also have 8mm coming in, but I still have to photograph and list that.  Finally, Swiss Blue Topaz in a 4mm rose cut, lovely and vibrant, to go with all these bright colours that are coming in this season.
