Do you like gemstones? I think I often prefer them to more expensive stones like diamonds and sapphires (though, FYI, I wouldn't refuse diamonds or sapphires). I've recently discovered my favorite gemstone: the moonstone. I love its muted tones of grey and iridescent white, and bezel set in simple gold the moonstone is understated and stunning. As June draws closer, and with it the Victorian reading challenge, I thought it might be fitting if I put The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins at the top of my reading list, and perhaps once I've finished reading it I might treat myself to a pair of those earrings.
