Well, well, well.
This one exceeded even my expectations.
Back story - I wanted a “budget” (this is a relative term ha ha) friendly pre loved but worthy setting for one of my 9mm sapphires. Or did I?
I found the setting and then was torn about splitting up the pair of well matched 9mm round sapphires. Do I use the better of the two ? The other? Neither? ugh.
Then my beloved eBay delivered the solution, another sapphire. A cushion cut. Woo Hoo. Then Covid, then should I wreck a perfectly good sapphire ring when I already have at least two loose sapphires, three if I include the white sapphire?
I went into my jewellers today to pick up some of the other jobs and a “surprise” awaited me.
Here she is. Very very nice.
Cushion cut heated sapphire around 4 carats set into 3 1/2 carats of diamonds ballerina setting.
Love a huge halo, love massive coverage on size 7 1/2 meaty fingers.
AND the bonus, the white sapphire will fit into the other setting! 6525D85E-432C-41B1-B3A4-AB1F1D05F692.jpeg C77BEC28-7374-4263-B5D8-809A6813D372.jpeg BF3415F2-45D3-4D58-9CD5-93353EBD1BB4.jpeg 79BC9697-7A4E-4CBD-B210-3210683656BB.jpeg 7683A461-B18E-4C5F-8005-A5E3C568A119.jpeg 37BDA585-2DE3-43B7-AA9E-9935C4DB8F76.jpeg 5C649966-8FAE-48B1-8CF7-DD983E6A8704.jpeg AD70513B-9060-44CF-8F5F-715D2E486A70.jpeg

Stunning!!! And if I’m reading this correctly does this mean you still have two loose sapphires??

That sapphire is incredible, @Bron357 - and I know and understand your love for a big setting!

This is a wonderful result - the best of all worlds! Congratulations on 2 (almost - when the second one is set!) wonderful new pieces!

So now what are your thoughts on the 2 remaining blue sapphires? You have incredible pieces!

This is truly beautiful!! I love the blue sapphire and I love the ballerina halo - regal and glamorous! How about some beautiful earrings with your sapphires to complete the set?
