A few days ago I had the pleasure of taking a tour at the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, California. I am going to cut my ramblings short and let the immense beauty of these gemstones, jewelry, and art pieces speak for themselves. I took these photographs, some of which accurately portray these beauties, and some, I apologize, don't do them justice. In my next blog, hopefully soon, I will show a few photographs of photographs, which will leave your mouths open! Enjoy!
I regret that I did not write down the names of the artists who created the necklace and other gemstone creations shown below. If you know their names, please add them in your comments!
