It ‘s the time of year where one gets inspired by color. I know the Pantone palette doesn’t include pink this Spring (you have to wait for the fall palette, although that pink, “Vivacious” is really more of a fuchsia).

And then there was a story I read:

All of which inspired me to dig into my vault for pink rocks.
Almost all pink gemstones have a “love” theme to them, and since this is the season for it, underscored by all the baby ducks and geese I ride by in the lagoons at the park, I thought these would be appropriate to make and share.
First up: these rose cut pale pink sapphires, I paired them up with andalusite garnets (an absolutely fabulous rock, the color changes depending on which way the light hits).
Then, another pair, for the girly girl:
For the drama queen/Goddess woman, may I suggest:
For the glamour girl:
I made another fabulous icy pink kunzite raw crystal ring:
Finally, I picked up one of my rare rhodochrosite stalactite slices that I’ve been hoarding:
