Hi there. Posting some pictures of my sapphire ring in a new thread, as has been requested by a few PS'ers.
I must admit, I am nervous to post. My sapphire, although beautiful to me, is likely not PS standard (being darker than what I see often shown here, without silk, and with extinction). But, she is very special to me: my husband suggested we buy a significant piece of jewellery during my first pregnancy, which was tough on me, and this is what we decided on. I will forever associate this stone with my beautiful daughter, and I hope that she will love it one day as much as I do.

The sapphire is difficult to photograph. When she darkens in low light, she goes a beautiful deep royal blue colour with a hint of violet. Unfortunately this colour doesn't show in photographs and she will photograph almost black in poor indoor light.

I've taken these photos with my Canon in a range of different lighting conditions, on a sunny day and on a cloudy day, inside near a window and outside.

People post blue sapphires here in all kinds of colors, and I don’t know of a PS standard in sapphire. :confused: I’ve posted mine and they’re far from trade ideal, but the important thing is to post them. It’s a beautiful ring and stone, and I’m glad you posted it!!

hey dont worry, we love sapphires of all colors! i like grassy green sapphires with yellow in them which i have seen considered as "not ideal" here but i still adore the color and am on the hunt for one. your ring is beautiful and congrats on your growing family. i'm sure your daughter will adore this future heirloom.

Your sapphire is very beautiful.
Certainly some colors and hues are more “trade ideal” but everyone loves what they love and that means differences thank goodness.
Neither my aquamarine (too green) nor my emerald (too pale) are top trade colour but they are MY top color and that’s what matters to me.

I think it's a very pretty ring and it's completely understandable that you are proud of it. Enjoy your gorgeous ring and your gorgeous daughter. Thank you for posting. I love to look at gemstones that are trade ideal/top color, but I cannot afford them. There are many truly beautiful gemstones out there that aren't trade ideal and it makes perfect sense to love them as beautiful affordable gemstones in their own right. I own a few myself.

Everyone's comments are so kind - thank you so much. I will always love this ring regardless because of it's meaning to me, but to have you all take time to chime in and say such nice things is so lovely. Thank you again.
