Encouraged by @mrs-b, I figured I'd start a thread for the ring in my avatar. First, pictures of the sapphire by itself!

Bought it from the lovely @Desertrose. Described as a Ceylon/Sri Lankan neon pink-purple sapphire. She got it from Dudley Blauwet. It's a 1.09ct, 6mm round (ish) stone that isn't cut too deep like some sapphires can be.

After stalking ebay for a couple of weeks, I managed to snag a size 6.5 platinum 3-stone setting with "real" diamond sides for <$500!!! I planned to wear it as a RHR so no resizing needed (added bonus!). It was sold to me as having 0.60ctw diamonds, so I'm guessing around 4.00-4.25mm each?

Me being a complete newb in the jewelry world, I neglected to check for any defects before buying. When I took it to my trusted jeweler in CA (only 1 of 2 that I consistently went to), I found out that yes, those appear to be diamonds and it is platinum. BUT, the prongs were messed up and there's actually a crack along one the galleries that will require laser repair! So I spent a bit more $ with the setting process for this ring, but overall the finished piece cost less than $1250 so it qualified for the "Fabulous CS rings under 1250 dollar!!" thread :D (I knew I had posted this somewhere. I finally found the post, from 2018! -- https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/fabulous-cs-rings-under-1250-dollar.211930/post-4381499)

It's still my favorite CS ring. And here's the finished piece in all its glory:

wow that's lovely! what an awesome Ebay steal for the setting, it fits perfectly and looks like they were made for reachother!

What a gorgeous sapphire such a lush and vibrant color!

Thank you both!

I just love the look of 3-stone rings. Now I want another 3-stone but with the side stones similar in size with the center stone, like the amazing one that @silkandsapphires just posted.

And I also want a 3-stone with discernably smaller side stones, like @nala's recent reset.

Absolutely love this ring! And that center stone - wooooooot!!

Thank you for sharing the info on it! Do you have any dimensions on any of the stones, and also, could you share your finger size with us?

But...again...did I mention that COLOR?!!

WOOOOOOT!

The sapphire looks a little rovally to me but it's about 6mm. And the sides are supposed to be 0.60ctw. Google tells me a 0.30ct diamond should be between 4-4.25mm. And the ring is 6.5 but my finger size is 5.75-6. So it wobbles a bit but I don't curr!

I'm already eyeing a 2ct sapphire that may have similar coloring. But seriously, I need to cool it with the purchases. Got bills to pay after all. Stupid adult responsibilities...

I had noticed this amazing ring on your avatar, because I adore pink sapphires and it really caught my attention!!! It looks wonderful on your hand! By the way, we are bling sisters! My original engagement ring has an oval pink sapphire as the center stone and white diamonds as side stones! Enjoy your beautiful ring in good health!
