Lol, now I've stumbled into the world of coloured stones, I've just learned that sapphires and rubies are the same stone (corundum), but that ruby is the name of red variant, while all other colours are called sapphires, except pure corundum which is clear.

More reading here (with beautiful pictures of the stones as well): http://www.gemstone.org/gem-by-gem/english/saphire_fancy.html

Would that be colourless or coloured diamonds? Or both?  

See here for info and pictures of coloured diamonds: http://24carat.co.uk/diamondscolouredframe.html


Had a look, but I think I prefer "traditional" diamonds - but only if they are real. None of this cubic zirconia crap!!!  

The black diamond was pretty cool though!

Diamonds, you say, Maxine?

Check out chameleon diamonds:



Frankly, I dont see a big color change in the example above (still pretty and sparkly though, oooooh!), but I understand that there are diamonds in which the color change is much more intense.  These diamonds are THOUSANDS of dollars.  

Ill just enjoy the pictures.

Wouldn't mind a couple of those in a nice ring setting or a lovely necklace!

Premier Windchimes.  These chimes are specially tuned.  They’re not much to look at but sound gorgeous!

I like Summer Simmer.

I got these chimes, and they are hanging on my front porch.  They sound gorgeous!  I highly recommend them.

Davis Blanchard wind chimes are on sale at windchimedirect.
