Hello -



This is my first post, and I am hoping for some help.



I am searching for a pair of Crescent shaped blue sapphires. I prefer them to have a dark ceylon blue. I am searching for a pair that would look nice next to a 2.25 carat round diamond. I would like them to "cradle" the round, and not stick out like knobs on the side!



I must have chosen a very unique shape, and am having quite a bit of trouble finding anything - but I have seen them in finished jewelry and know they are out there!



I see that half moon are slightly more available, but only slightly and I prefer the crescent shape.



I was hoping to find a pair around with each stone ranging from .5 to .75 carat.



I am looking for man made or natural.



Thank you for your help and advice!

I tend to see half moons much more often, but I think they would be too "knobby" from your description. The size of the sapphires will also need to be quite precise, to fit around the diamond nicely.

I think you should have them custom cut for you. Finding something like that, in the size you need, will be very, very hard.

I agree, going custom will be easier, they can make it specifically to be proportionate to your diamond :)

It does sound like it has to be custom cut and the inner and outer curvature must fit the center stone. I don''t think you''ll find a ready pair very easily. MTG has given a good list of cutters. www.whitesgems.com is another excellent cutter.
