ametrines are a girl's best friend

Take note that it looks kinda weird here because Ben took the photo of the back of the silly thing.

Moments ago we got back from a gem show at our friend Jordan's workplace (he is a watchmaker and works at a jewelry store). There were so many beautiful stones (I of course loved the 70 carat monstrosities best), but the best part... the BEST part... Banks found a stone in his "carat" cake! AHHHHH! I'm so excited. I kept saying, "This is the best day ever!" Anyway it is super pretty and I think I'll have it set into a ring. I never win anything! Good thing I have children to win things for me.

It really is beautiful! I hope I can see it in a ring in person someday.

And I'm glad banks didn't eat it! :)
