A friend and I headed up to the diamond district to buy some gems for future jewelry projects...I love going to the gem stores cause it's like being in a bond film. They are usually in an office building on like the 7th floor with no windows and you have to be buzzed into a tiny room where they look you up and down and you tell them why you are there. Then they begrudgingly let you in. Once inside you can basically ask for anything and they bring out trays and trays of the most beautiful stones. I could have spent hours and thousands, but we only had one hour and I ended up with the below stones...
