I just ran into the most amazing set of quotes about gems, here: http://www.quotegarden.com/jewelry.html

there are many that I think are particularly good.

One I especially like is:
Jewelry takes people's minds off your wrinkles. ~Sonja Henie

what's your favorite?

On a more serious note, I like this one about the opal:

There is in them a softer fire than the ruby, there is the brilliant purple of the amethyst, and the sea green of the emerald - all shining together in incredible union. Some by their splendor rival the colors of the painters, others the flame of burning sulphur or of fire quickened by oil. ~Pliny, about the opal
