JEWELS

General Use of Jewels

"As I stood tensely, ringed by the lances of the caravan guards, the wall of tharlarions parted to allow the approach of Mintar, of the Merchant Caste. A bejewelled, curtained platform slung beneath the slow, swaying bodies of two of the broad tharlarions appeared."
"Tarnsman of Gor" page 119

"Pa-Kur himself rode a black tharlarion, one of the few I had seen. The beast was bejewelled and moved with a grave, regal stride. I was puzzled as the great procession halted and a palanquin was borne forward by eight members of the Caste of Assassins."
"Tarnsman of Gor page 189

"I wore at my side a jeweled sword, no longer the sword I had worn for the long years when I had served Priest-Kings."
"Raiders of Gor" page 213

"The sword was brought. It was a fine blade. It had been carried on the 25th of Se’Kara. Its blade was figured, its hilt encrusted with jewels."
"Marauders of Gor" page 22

"I thrust out the silver paga goblet, studded with rubies, and Telima, standing beside my thronelike chair, filled it."
"Raiders of Gor" page 223

"Targo wore purple sandals, the straps of which were set with pearls. His thick fingers were covered with rings, which glittered as he moved his hands. About his neck, in the manner of a steward, he wore a set of pierced coins threaded on a silver wire. From the lobe of each small, round ear there hung an enormous earring, a sapphire pendant on a golden stalk."
"Outlaw of Gor" page 191

" “I will give you two of the stones from this scabbard for her,” I said. Actually I had no idea of the value of the stones, and didn’t know if the offer was a sensible one or not. In annoyance, looking over the rings of Targo and the sapphires which hung from his ears, I knew he would be a much better judge of their value than I."
"Outlaw of Gor" page 193

"About the robes and over the hood and veils of the garmenting were slung medallions and necklaces of wrought gold, pendant with gems. On her hands were white gloves, fastened with hooks of gold. Beneath the final hem of the innermost robe I saw the toes of golden slippers, jeweled, and scarlet-threaded, sparkling in the torchlight."
"Slave Girl of Gor" page 43/4

"Her hands wore many rings. About her neck she wore, looped, four chains of gold, with pendants. On her wrists were bracelets of silver and gold."
"Marauders of Gor" page 114

"How beautiful she was, and proud and fierce, in the brief skins and golden ornaments. She was beautifully figured and she carried herself arrogantly before them, taunting them with her beauty, and spear. Verna, leader of the Panther Girls, speaking to the men she and her band have just captured in the Northern Forest."
"Captive of Gor" page 120

"I looked at the girl, now after her long days of suffering and flight at last a captive, her slender wrists encircled at last by Thorn’s hated bracelets, beautifully wrought bracelets, like many, of exquisite workmanship, bright with color, set even with jewels, but like all slave bracelets, of unyielding steel."
"Outlaw of Gor" page 62

"It is called the Whip Dance, the dance the girl upon the sand danced. She wore a delicate vest and belt of chains and jewels, with shimmering metal droplets attached. And she wore ankle rings, and linked slave bracelets, again with shimmering droplets pendant upon them; and a locked collar, matching."
"Raiders of Gor" page 100

"Thurnock and Clitus seemed pleased with Thura and Ula, who now wore expensive silks and jeweled collars."
"Raiders of Gor" page 131

Trade in Jewels

"One of her most famous and precious, exports are the small carved sapphires of Scehndi. These are generally a deep blue,but some are purple and others, interestingly, white or yellow. They are usually carved in the shape of tiny panthers,but sometimes other animals are found as well, usually small animals or birds. Sometimes however the stone is carved to resemble a tiny kailiauk or kailiauk head."
"Explorers of Gor" page 115

"You will note," he said, "that you wear a common slave leash and collar. There is nothing unusual or valuable about them. The collar, for example, is neither set with sapphires nor is it trimmed with gold. The leash, similarly, is of plain but sturdy material. Both devices are quite ordinary, but, of course, quite efficient."
"Kajira of Gor" page 337

"They are probably false stones," I said, "amber droplets, the pearls of the Vosk sorp, the polished shell of the Tamber clam, glass colored and cut in Ar for trade with ignorant southern peoples."
"Nomads of Gor" page 20

"Suleiman, with his finger, pushed back certain of the stones toward me. I replaced these in my wallet. His greatest interest, apparently, lay in the sereem diamonds and opals. Both sorts of stones were rare in the Tahari gem trade."

Amber

"I looked at him steadily. “They are probably false stones,” I said, “amber droplets, the pearls of the Vosk sorp, the polished shell of the Tamber clam, glass colored and cut in Ar for trade with ignorant southern peoples.”"

Amethysts

"“You, Master,” said Tina, to a handsome young seaman, who wore a wristlet studded with purplish stone, amethysts from Schendi, “would you be so kind as to rise and come forward.”"

Diamonds

"“I had brought you a five-belt necklace of diamonds,” said Kamchak, “for I had heard you were beautiful.”"
"Nomads of Gor" page 94

"I speak of lean, scarred Ha-Keel, who wore about his neck, on a golden chain, a worn tarn disk, set with diamonds, of the city of Ar."
"Raiders of Gor" page 273

"Suleiman, with his finger, pushed back certain of the stones toward me. I replaced these in my wallet. His greatest interest, apparently, lay in the sereem diamonds and opals. Both sorts of stones were rare in the Tahari gem trade."
"Tribesman of Gor" page 88

"Before Suleiman, now, there lay five stones, three sereem diamonds, red, sparkling, white flecked, and two opals, one a common sort, milky in color, and the other an unusual flame opal, reddish and blue. Opals are not particularly valuable on Earth, but they are much rarer on Gor; these were excellent specimens, cut and polished into luminscent ovoids; still, of course, they did not have the value of the diamonds."
"Tribesmen of Gor" page 92

Emeralds

"I saw the scabbard was set with six stones. Emeralds. Perhaps not of great value, but worth taking."

Opals

Pearls

"The girl was naked, save that she wore many strings of jewels and armlets. Too she wore bracelets and anklets of gold, which had been locked upon her and were belled. Her collar too, was of gold and belled. She was blond, and it was said she was from Earth. A single pearl, fastened in a setting like a droplet, on a tiny golden chain, was suspended at the center of her forehead."
"Rogue of Gor" page 10

"“Paga!” called the standing men. “Paga!” A blond girl, nude, with a string of pearls wound about her steel collar, ran to the table and from the bronze vessel, on its stap about her shoulder, poured paga into the goblet before the seated man."
"Rogue of Gor" page 77

Rubies

"Targo, with his short, rolling steps, went to the girl and placed one thumb, wearing a large ruby ring, under her chin, pushing her head up."
"Outlaw of Gor" page 192

"And, as I watched, on that square of sand between the tables in a paga tavern in Port Kar, under the ship’s lanterns, the movements of the body of a slave girl, the lights reflected in her chains, the rubies, the shimmering golden droplets, I grew slowly furious."
"Raiders of Gor" page 110

"I thrust out the silver paga goblet, studded with rubies, and Telima, standing beside my thronelike chair, filled it."

Sapphires

"The Forkbeard then went to the heavy leather sack and ripping the leather away at its throat, poured onto the dirt, lustrous, scintillating, a shower of jewels, mostly a deep blue, but some were purple, and other white and yellow, the carved sapphires of Schendi, each in the shape of a tiny panther."
"Marauders of Gor" page 196

"One of her most famous, and precious, exports are the small carved sapphires of Schendi. These are generally a deep blue, but some are purple and others, interestingly, white or yellow. They are usually carved in the shape of tiny panthers, but sometimes other animals are found as well, usually small animals or birds.
