In the Name of Beauty Everyone should have a Pink Shield.

Stable brilliant medium rich pink shield cut A fine larger pink shield cut with it all. It is a GEM and knows it. It weighs a significant 4.66 carats, which is large enough to make a statement.

I like shield cuts and this larger one is in the pink.  And I mean pure pink.  The shield cut brings out a vibrant  scintillating flash the is not obscured by any flaws or a lack of transparency.  The medium rich toned color does not flinch an inch when it goes from a bluer natural light to my yellow incandescent light.   At 4.66 carats this pink shield would make quite a statement in a golden pendant.


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.
