Lovely and unusual variety of stones. U.S. companies stick to the same old "regulars". Boring!
GemSelect also does a fine job of rating the stones. Gemstones are meant to dazzle and a great way to add flash and fun for those of us who like color. Will be happy to share photos of the stones when they are set.
