    What a gorgeous ruby. It's going to look amazing set. As for your setting options, I love both but the first one (floral one) is my favorite. :kiss2:

    Finally figured out the lab side stones for my opal doublets!!

    Both will be 3 stone rings and will likely involve a halo because #haloallthethings is my bling mantra :lol:

    Looking forward to seeing your gorgeous opals getting set! Though I have a sneaky suspicion you might wait to receive the belemnite first before shelling out money setting something else. :twisted2:

    Correct!!!!!! I spent a bunch on the belemnite and think I might end up setting it first if I love it as much as I expect to.

    $170 including the cutting and rough? I think it is a good price. But it also depends on the colour of the stone.

    My flame fusion precision cut Ruby has arrived, and the colour is gorgeous!

    By the time import duties and custom charges are added to the purchased price and shipping, it comes to nearly 200 GBP! :eek2:

    I believe it is worth it, so I keep telling myself! :roll2::lol-2:

    Gorgeous colour and great cutting! I think, how much would a comparable natural stone cost? In comparison £200 is a right bargain! Import duties always hurt though, I hate paying that extra 20% :cry2:

    I have received the CAD for my lab pink sapphire. It will be a RHR, set in 18k rose gold. I'm very excited!

    @elle_71125 Here are a couple outdoors. It's darker than I thought it would be, but it is truly exceptional!

    It’s definitely a little darker than I thought too but it looks fantastic against your skin tone. :love:
    Any ideas on what you’ll do with it?

    ooooh I actually prefer the color in your pics vs the ones Gene posted. I was thinking it was too pink/light for my taste, but the colors in your pics are much more "pad-like" IMHO.

    @elle_71125 It's going in the ever-growing large pile of stones awaiting settings. I have four other labs in that pile...:wall:

    Hey ladies and gentleman! Was just wondering if the person who Scott cut that beautiful little OMC spinel for awhile back on his instagram was a PSer? If you are I would love to see some shots of it. I'm so tempted to have him cut me one between my birthday and christmas but I only saw the one picture he had of it.

    Forgive my slight off topic-ness!
