Anyone familiar with this seller? Thanks
I have this coming. I wanted a larger stone than I bought originally. It looks promising.
Video is nicer than still.
Pulled the trigger, I'm intrigued by the color on this sapphire..."unheated, untreated, eye clean". We shall see! Nervous buying from unknown...
Glad to hear it’s a keeper!
I think it’s a pretty combination.
If put in a very simple straightforward three stone - I think “oh, that’s nice”
If put in one of CVB’s (since you mention her) more intricate designs, I think it’ll really stand out as an all over cohesive design.
My sapphire from leenagems arrived today. I love it in bright sun, but indoors, it's inky, darker than I hoped. Think I will have to keep hunting for the right 7mm sapphire...
Sorry it didn’t work out!
Have you seen this?
I buy from him often. You need to make sure you get as many photos as you can to get an accurate call. Some of the stones I bought actually look way better than the pictures. Others the reverse. But sapphires are bloody tricky to buy sight unseen.
Also these will be mainly native cut to maximise weight - cutters in Sri Lanka don’t think the same way as us in the west about perfect light reflection at the expense of heft. It doesn’t usually make financial sense for them given the market there.
Please remember also that this seller doesn’t have the benefit of light boxes or turntables or a fancy camera or other sophisticated gadgetry to take pictures of his stock.
The one thing you will get with this seller is a bargain on unheated stones because you’re getting it direct from the source. I’m willing to gamble a bit because of that and haven’t regretted it.
