Studly Porno Obsession. WHAT? Sparkly Pink Morganite Earrings.

I love big studs. Hee hee.

It’s time to shake it off just like my girl Taylor Swift, and lighten up the content/mood here at Casa de Enchanted Seashells.

There’s no better way to accomplish this than by sharing one of my bestest prezzies this year.

Studs on a  seashell.

My erstwhile tugboat man again departed for a smallish portion of the vast seas and that means that I need to return to my (ab)normal life as a part-time single lady.

Single and ready to mingle — with aisles of shoes and racks of clothes, that is…

I spent the better part of last evening attempting to capture the exact hue and sparkle of my new three carat oval morganite studs.

With American Idol droning on in the background, I posed (wasted three hours) these guys in every position, under every light, with every background, and have come to the conclusion that photographing jewelry is a most difficult task.morganite2

Shooting porn with two willing adults would prolly be easier, ‘tho I’ll never know, THAT’S for sure.

Anyway, here’s my jewelry porn.

Pink.

Studs.

Three of my most favorite words in the English language.

What is MORGANITE?

Have you ever heard of it?  Just after graduating from college, I worked part-time at a posh jewelry store in La Jolla and that’s where I gained a lot of knowledge about gems and all that sparkles and shines. If you’re thinking that most of my time was spent trying on all the jewels and parading around the store like a princess — you’d be right!

Like emeralds and aquamarines, morganite is one of the better known gemstone from the colorful group of the beryls.

The enchanting soft pink to peach color is produced by trace amounts of manganese.

Morganite found its name in 1911 when it drew the attention of one of the world’s most esteemed gemstone experts, George Kunz of Tiffany & Co, He named it in honor of millionaire banker and mineral collector John Pierport Morgan.

Legend says that beryl was once used to ward off demons and evil spirits and that it can protect the wearer from danger while traveling.

Other legends also state that beryl can be used to bring good luck, cheerfulness, energy, and eternal youthfulness.

Morganite is believed to nurture feelings of love and to increase tenderness in a relationship. Morganite can enhance one’s communications skills and provide patience to help focus during times of stress.

Enchanting, gleaming, illuminating,…PINK!

I don’t often purchase jewelry online, but these three-carat studs set in a basket of real gold caught my eye.

I’ve been obsessing about pink stones for a while, not that I don’t love my sparkly white diamonds, but I’m one of those girly-girls who LOVES pink.

Pink diamonds are way out of my price range, but for their size, these morganite studs are perfect.

They have a huge presence and sparkle. I’m in love.morganite5What’s YOUR obsession?

  1. You need studio lights to do jewelry properly — if you are going to shoot indoors. All that subtle color and reflection is difficult. I used to run an online shop. I finally bought lights. I still have them, but am too lazy to set them up. Alternatively, just go outside and shoot in bright shade. That pretty much always works. Can’t go wrong with natural light.

    The picture on the shell is lovely, though I think the color is little off. You could fix that in a processing program, adjust the light “temperature” to add a little red.

    Anyway, pictures or not, I’ll take them. They are GORGEOUS.
