    Padparadscha journey

    Wriston did say he thinks stones should be bought in person. Especially for stones like pads where everyone has their personal pref regarding the color/saturation. If you have decided which date/time to pop by and wanna have a quick meet up let us know and maybe we can gather at Wriston’s or...

    1.94 sapphire pictures by me in natural lighting!

    Has she indicated that she would like a blue sapphire? Not sure if you mentioned it before. Multiple threads so is quite hard to track. I know enough women who disliked their engagement rings which is why am asking. Just in case she wanted a diamond ring... Just in case she only wears a...

    What to do with a star ruby?

    Probably not based on quality factors like translucency, star niceness etc. but imo a lovely reminder of your father so sentimental value is high. I would say $2k-ish. See: https://www.starruby.in/store/vietnamese-star-rubies

    I took so many pics omg Then eliminated those where my skin looks too grey, too orange, too pale or simply strange... it was overcast when I was outdoor btw. Anyway I asked Wriston and he said the oval has the ideal pedigree (Sri Lankan) and even distribution of orange and pink. But I...

    Ok some pics. Took vids but I load later. No brown irl. I looked a long time. But many of the pics I took are either orangey (not posted) or the color is just off. Irl the tourmaline is just pink but in some of the pics it looks orangey pink. So yeah need to see irl

    Hahaha speaking from personal experience right? But true that. A bit of a waste to get smaller stones and then to feel like upgrading later. Since setting the stone is pretty much fixed cost anyway. Anyway am likely to pop by Wriston’s later coz am in the area. If my appt finishes earlier...

    Which pic or video is the most color accurate? Your hand looks darker/more brown than I remember. (Just relooked and actually your hand looks different in all the pics) @Lilith112 You really do like pad colors? Maybe a bit late to ask but same like @YC pads aren’t flattering on my skin. Do you...

    Ok or this month end if you are clearing any leave and will be in SG? Jan is a short month with CNY and I’ve a few early Feb deliverables so could get slightly crazy work wise for me. I feel tempted to start a what should I ask Phoenix to wear thread lol. My collection is modest compared to...

    #JOTW 2.05 CBI from HPD

    Hey yeah m in sg. I think halo away if you think you need bigger finger coverage. Most of my CS rings have such big halos I definitely feel some shrinkage. Happy to show you my 2ct if I get to see your 5ct ;-)

    Padparadscha journey

    Can you ask Wriston to put it in a ringholder and take some pics and video in diff lighting? - If natural light - tell him the bushes near the taxi stand area - If fluorescent light - near the shops inside the mall These are the places I typically go to see his stones before I buy If I...

    Padparadscha journey

    If it looks nice in his pic I think it shouldn’t look too bad irl... since based on past history his pics aren’t the most flattering. Comparison with pics I’ve taken of the pad ring in his store (upper right and bottom left) and natural light (bottom right) But it does have a small window...

    Or this http://www.diamondsbylauren.com/index.php/jewelry/216ct-blue-cushion-sapphire-r8757 Hopefully others can chime in with their suggestions. Am not in North America and I usually buy my gemstones in person so am not best placed to advise

    5.3ct Sapphire for $1,200?

    A Kashmir sapphire at that price? Umm no. Who would sell at that price when it’s 5-6 figures at auctions? Pass.

    Advise will be appreciated - a project with an old brooch/new sapphire

    This is lovely! Is it a brooch or a convertible that can be worn as a pendant? I can visualize this as a stunning enhancer on a pearl necklace too! Just gorgeous!

    How much does white line affect sapphire price?

    Then no. It will bug you in the long run. How about getting from an online vendor with good return policy? Do you have an specific color, budget, size and shape that you are looking for? Is heated ok for you?

    How much does white line affect sapphire price?

    Imo any highly visible inclusion or color banding is a no unless I’ve seen the stone irl and really don’t mind the inclusion/s. In this case it’s on the table so I feel like it could be highly disturbing irl. The sort that I will keep looking at and feel irked. As an engagement ring I would...

    How Would You Set a 58ct Cushion Cut Kunzite

    Some other ideas

    How Would You Set a 58ct Cushion Cut Kunzite

    Border with a bit of design going on instead of a plain one? Vintage vibe Zircons or moissanite melees to keep cost down... or a perhaps a design with a few bigger OEC moissy as accent stones?

    What’s Going on With Me?!?

    Just a possibility... Some silver are rhodium plated. Over time the rhodium wears out and then the tarnishing becomes fairly obvious once the rhodium is gone. Re: skin, could it be hormone related? Have you changed any regimes or been taking any medication that could have affected you? Just...

    3.9 ct is not tiny!!! Btw have you seen my Frozen ring? My stone is also longish but the design worked out fine. Anyway I think his settings ppl won’t be here until next year. That reminds me... I probably should chase for xiaohuang CAD...
