I went to an event at our local jeweler's last weekend: Balloon Pop. Each year they sell tickets, and you get to pop a balloon for every ticket you buy. Each balloon holds a loose gemstone. If you want it set, they will do it for the charge of the setting alone (free labor).
We did six balloons and received a garnet that is just weird (kind of like a long flat chip), a 1 carat blue topaz, a 1 carat lemon citrine, a 1 carat peridot, a 1 carat amethyst, and a 4 carat laser-cut pear-shaped citrine.
Guess which one I had set?
