I will be stalking my mailman Tuesday to receive a sapphire & a ruby from Andrew Gulij at Gemfix. Super excited to see what they look like in person. My boyfriend has said he likes sapphires a lot more than rubies in general, so we're taking a look at one of each :)
I'm having trouble attaching those photos, but it's the 2.17 blue sapphire (Round/Portuguese) http://www.gemfix.com/sapphire_blue.html& the 2.41 ruby (top right corner http://www.gemfix.com/ruby.html. Both show "Sale Pending"...

I stumbled on Leon Mege's site & thought his 3 stone colored-stone rings were absolutely AMAZING! Would either of these stones work well in this type of setting (obviously the side stones would be drastically smaller to keep the proportions :p )?

-Would you guys trust a sapphire or ruby in that type of setting for daily wear?
-Do you think they would make that style ring, but with a lower profile & slightly thicker band, or is that totally anti-Leon?
-Has anyone on here used him to source their stones? Or do most people find their center stone separately & have him set it?

The rings I was looking at are: R4229 & R4806.

I'm realizing that seeing these stones in person is really the only way to judge them, as photos don't really do them justice, but outside opinions & experience with this stuff is incredibly helpful, so thank you!!
