Looks like Gary has another bigger one with even more intense colour available, not sure if they’re of same material.

I reached out to Gary and he does indeed have the same hot pink material that I posted a screenshot of... however the shipping terms don't suit me (due to my location). :cry2:

I was also tempted by that material, Gary even compare them with Mahenge or Jedi spinel. Just my budget is not currently on another lab stone~

That's what caught me too! I'd love a mahenge/Jedi spinel but they're all way above my budget. haha!

That would be an interesting comparison between the two they offer!

And one more, quite nice one from Stag and finch.

I know he will cut to order now as he has finally caught up. They have a sale going on during the month of October so I would check with Bryan

I want to share my custom hot pink lab sapphire from Gary. I absolute adore this hot pink material.

I love it! Such a beautiful color! What are your plans for it?

I scooped up a 7mm “hanami” cut in lab Alexandrite from one of Stag & Finch’s flash sales. It’s not a standard size, being 5 sided. I’ve got many rings, so I’m thinking maybe a pendant for this one? The colors are gorgeous, it photographs purple, but changes to bright teal in the light that my camera can’t capture.

Aside from a standard prong setting, I would love to hear any creative ideas about how to set this stone!

I bought a hot pink lab sapphire like that from Gary too. I'd just caution you not to halo it or otherwise set it in a way that blocks out too much light. Mine is haloed and it lights up to be that color shown in your pics under certain conditions. But it looks a lot darker than that in most lighting conditions. I still like it but if I had it to do over again, I'd pick a different setting.

This is a really helpful info, I am just not sure if it’s the light from the side, possibly hitting the stone at the pavilion somehow elevate the vividness and brighten it up. I have had this question for a certain period of time.

I bought this pretty pink sapphire at Gary’s 50% off sale (finewater gems). There are still a few other stones available if someone is on the lookout!

not sure if it would be better in a pendant or a ring? I am leaning toward a rose gold pendant.

Omg didn’t even know about this sale! Wow almost everything is gone. When did it start? Nice score on that sapphire!

Oooh, I've had my eye on that one for months but never pulled the trigger! I can't wait to see what you do with it. I bought his Asscher-cut baby blue spinel.

That is soooo pretty!! I'm a ring gal myself but I think this would look spectacular as a pendant in RG!

Beautiful! Rose gold pendant is exactly what I would do with it :)

BTW I'm also gutted to have missed the sale. There were 2 I've been eyeing for months. Ah well, I'm sure they will make someone very happy!
