Nor me, and don't think anyone else has mentioned them either. Red and orange are colours I'm not keen on in general which probably has something to do with. I did buy a silver band ring from Q with two rows of the tiniest rubies channel set as a token to my birthstone, it's actually quite pretty. I do love rubellite, have a red spinel ring and some rhodolite garnet, but they all lean more towards pink than red.

Only because I said what I didn't like! I love rubies and I love Mozambique garnet which has orange tones, Mookite with all its range of colours and I also like citrine, yellow topaz, hessonite garnet, Mexican fire opal..........the list goes on! I wear a lot of orange/burnt orange and autumnal tones so a lot of my jewellery reflects that!
Oh yes, marcasite, I've got several lovely pieces bought from RocksTV when they started, for ridiculous prices.
Ah, those were the days when they had rising auctions then falling auctions and stuff going for a tenner! I bought a few marcasite in silver pieces and they certainly have stood the test of time.
Lovely choices ladies, I do admire your tastes. Indicolite is one stone I dithered over and then missed out on....sadly. But I have seen some pink Tanzanite pieces that DK hauled out of the depths of Rocks&Co 's vault yesterday and also some lovely pink (treated) diamond rings that he couldn't believe were. still there and never been auctioned.
Has anybody mentioned pearls? I find I like them more as time goes on and fresh water pearls set in silver are quite reasonable to buy, though my favourites are the golden colour ones!
