It''s sunny here today so I was finally able to capture a little bit of the color change in my cushion sapphire. It''s amazing how the color really changes depending upon the light. I hope you can tell at least a little bit from these pictures.

Here is what the stone looks like in normal inside lighting. It''s a pretty strong blue with lighter blue flashes.

Wow I just LOVE that stone--in all of its colors! You HAVE to wear it to the May GTG so I can see it in person!

HI:

Hmmm, Catmom, I have a feeling I need to see this ring in person to get a full sense of the color change. Please send it to me directly, so I can evaluate the same, and I''ll have it back to you after Easter.........sometime.

hehhehheh

It''s wonderful regardless of what light in which you show it!!!!


cheers--Sharon

Thanks everyone!!!

DJ, I can''t wait for May. I really want to find that vendor again with the stacker eternity rings. I want a pink one and maybe a green if they have it and yes, I''ll wear my ring!


canuk-gal, you know I was just going to pop it in the mail for you when I realized that we don''t have mail service here. I''m so sorry................

Hi Catmom! I keep returning to this thread, just to admire your ring and the color of your sapphire. I LOVE the color! May I ask where you got such a beautiful sapphire and setting?

Very nice Michelle! Capturing color change with a camera can be a tall task. Regardless, that is one incredible stone!

Thanks so much for all the compliments on my ring! I''m so glad you like it as much as I do. Zoebartlett, I got the stone and setting from a jewelry store in Florida. The setting is a Parade Designs setting and this particular store carries many of their pieces.

It''s beautiful, I can''t decide which shade I like better!!
Thanks, Sophie, I''m staring at it right now in a very low light and it''s glowing deep purple. Almost looks like an amethyst. I love this stone!

Thanks NYCsparkle and Firegoddess!
