I'm considering selling some of the rings and gems that don't "spark joy". Please contact via loupetroop or reply to thread if interested in more details/pictures.

First up: purchased off eBay as a natural ruby (0.5ct) sz 6.25 in 14kt gold. Ruby color is closer to first picture. Price: $200

Native cut gemstones. Photographed with minimal light:
5.9x5 mm red spinel. I'll have regrets if I sell it for less than I paid. Price: $500
4.8mm 0.63ct sapphire sold as cornflower but IMO a touch too dark. Price: $100

Is the 4.8mm sapphire heated? What is the ct weight of the red spinel, and how purplish is it? Amy photos of these two getting in direct sunlight?

I want to buy the $80 sapphire and want to ask whether the $350 Gene sapphire is also unheated. If so, I would buy that one as well.

I sent you a message via LoupeTroop this morning. I used the listing you posted for the red spinel and other sapphire. Still have not gotten a response back from you.

My apologies @voce , after looking through my paperwork, it seems I don't have any firm notes on the heated or unheated state of Gene's sapphire. I believe I slightly recall that there was a small discount on the stone as Gene was unsure.

Up for grabs is the sapphire ring I grabbed preloved:

Art Deco William Drummond (Royal Jeweler) Ceylon Sapphire Ring. Size 6.25. 4.5mm sapphire which is a nice, bright (my ideal cornflower) blue. Small chip on the edge of the sapphire. Price $265 (F&F or buyer pays fees).

I have decided I won't take the Gene sapphire, but I will take the Gene amethyst! Going to email and ask you what your PayPal info is so I can send the payment.

@Kalliope Here are some extra shots.

I originally bought this ring for the setting, hoping to put the cornflower sapphire in there, but once I purchased it, I didn't see the two meshing well and I liked the ring on its own. I didn't pay attention or note the diamond specs for that reason, but it looks fairly white and eye clean.
