What is your favorite Jewel (GEM)

Gems - There is not a gem in the world that doesn't have its own rightful slate in the world of beautiful things. I have never been one for money, jewels or the wants. But These have a quality that makes it hard to ignore

Ruby, Emerald, Pearl, Opal, you name it. I Think they all have their own beauty. Diamonds can be quite nice, you also have the garnet (My birthstone). Choose any one and tell us what you like about it. If it's not listed above add it.

The beauty of an emerald is almost unmatched. I think the a forest touches on how an emerald is truely the closest to the natural world. Of course all gems are from mother earth, but what they look like makes a difference. Red is not my favorite color but Rubys do look nice as a necklace.

My favorite Gem is Diamond because they say its forever and its girls' bestfriend. I like the elegance and the strength it has. Only another diamond can break it. Its also good for making jewelries as its got too much beauty and its really pleasant to the eyes.

I've been out of the loop for so long. Sorry I have not gotten to your answer. (4 months away) Diamonds are wonderful, unfortunately it has been over talked about, and so many people try to make fake ones...which almost look as beautiful as the original which dilutes the expense of a diamond

I agree Diamonds are beyond words especially real ones. The biggest one I've ever seen was on display at a Marks and Morgans Jewelers one day and it was unbelievable, sparkled like one of those old disco dance balls.

Topaz is lovely. I think that when birthstones were introduced it was one of the best things to happen to humankind. It gave you a sense of identity with mother nature

of course, i'll choose my birthstone which is Emerald. The green of the emerald is the colour of life and of the springtime. i just love wearing my birthstone... i have one set of it, a pair of earring, ring, necklace and bracelet.. actually, it's our business, i think, you're familiar with Swarovski stones.. that's what our business, make accessories out of these gems..

All jewels are beautiful but my first choice would be emerald, I guess it's because green is one of my favorite colors. Dark blue sapphires are wonderful. I also find amber very fascinating, drops of resin from the trees over 35 million years ago.

They're all my favorites for one reason or another. If I had to pick a favorite, however, it would be a pearl. It's beautiful and simple--and it has a lesson to it that this is a case of having something bad (an irritant) being turned into something beautiful (a finished pearl).

I love semi-precious stones, and I am very drawn to Jasper - all different types of it. Jasper is known as "The Supreme Nurturer", it sustains & supports during times of stress & brings tranquility. I think the world could do with some Jasper!
