    In all seriousness, I think we PSers should be able the find a personal shopper for the show. How awesome would that be? :D

    Have you considered purchasing a whole boule of synthetic? That would be enough to make many many stones . From what I've seen the price for a boule is around $100.
    I can't remember - did you see this video?

    Maybe colour number 114 on this site?

    http://www.gemcutter.com/syn-ruf.htm

    Only 19 cents a carat!

    The czochralski rough also looks like a good bet, but I haven't seen it anywhere other than rusgems as yet...

    Have you contacted the vendor directly to see if you can purchase a larger piece?

    No, I can't find a whole boule of that color either. :(

    Good luck! Maybe they can point you in the right direction if that's not quite the right colour still :mrgreen2:

    Omfg I am dead over that. The sapphire from BTD is nice as well, but this is just insane!! What's the size and how big are your fingers? I need to snag one of these!

    It’s 8.9mm on my 4.75 finger (at least that’s what the ring finger is).
    The color truly is phenomenal and I’m so, so happy I got it! :dance:
    You definitely need one. Lol

    It sure is beautiful, Elle. I would even wear that! ;-)
    BTW, who is "BTD" ? (where you got it from)

    Oh, wait, I thought that's where the pink sapphire came from - I was confused. What was his price on that one? It's gorgeous, BTW.

    Do you know what the height of this stone is? (I'm thinking of having one cut in that diameter, IF it will sit low enough in a setting to suit me) ;-)

    Does Gene do custom order? I tried many times to make purchase through the website and either I was too late or just a bit late. What is the tip? I check his website once a week

    He does! $50 deposit. I also asked for a commissioned hot pink lab sapphire! He was very pleasant and quick to work with!

    Did you request a particular shape?
