Beige for another round of color#1040


Beige droplet, clean and bright I don't use beige as a color very often, but this standard round brilliant is an individual. It has a nice clean pastel look and is very flashy. It weighs 1.8 carats and has been accepted by the droplets.

Now I didn’t look up the definition of beige when I name this standard round brilliant, it just came to me.  What I am seeing is the pinker side of wheat and I still like beige for that.  I may have to push the weight limitations for this candidate for the droplets, because at 1.8 carats she is a bit heavy.  But she has such a pleasant color with a decent pastel tone level that she is needed with the droplets.  She is eye clean and very flashy.



About Bruce Fry

I was born in Summit, NJ in 1947 and graduated from Summit High School in 1966. I graduated from the Colorado School of Mines in 1970 and after spending another year in graduate school, I left to see the world of Brazil. After spending some more time discovering myself, I ended up working for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for 32 years as an Air Quality Engineer in the Department of Environmental Protection. I retired in 2007 and took up faceting gemstones again after a long hiatus that reached back to my twenties. I had started cutting cabochons when I was 13 and bought my first faceting machine when I was 15, but ran out of money and time until I retired. My great love in gemology is tourmaline and the collection presented here represents my effort to get as much beauty and variety in the colors of tourmaline as I can. I was particularly lucky in being able to get unheated cuprian tourmaline before copper was discovered in gem grade tourmaline from Mozambique.
