Maybe it all started with Snow White and The Seven Dwarves -- this misconception that gemstones come straight out of the mine sparkling and faceted rather than the reality of being dull and unassuming. Rocks and minerals -- geological, not "gemological," as it were. I am curating a collection of these raw, unpolished pieces. Last month, I received my rubies and sapphires from German Kabirski. And this morning, I opened the black velvet pouch to find my tsavorite eternity band. It is a sparkling green stone. It is the rarest of the garnets. It behooves the gold to mold to its original and uneven asymmetry, rather than being reduced and forced into a setting. And though it costs just a fraction of an emerald, its rarity makes it more valuable and precious than that showy display of finances and fashion. The emerald has its sad ironies. Its price increases as it achieves more clarity in cuts. So in a sense, its not unlike how we as people place value and respect on each other's lives -- the scars make the man. And, it's that the emerald -- which is quite abundant in nature -- needs fixing. The rarer tsavorite is perfect -- and more valuable, more prized -- just the way it is. This ring bears my name and my ego. The sense of self that understands some people will always want that emerald. It's big, green, shiny and screams money. It's polished, poised and pristine. And then there's me and my tsavorite. Raw. And if not rare, then at least real.
