    I present to you a Purple sapphire Cora ring by CvB! Here's a quick video of it in action! https://gph.is/g/EGyDQzn

    The sapphire:
    1.81 ct unheated oval modified "Portugese" cut by Andrew Gulij of Gemfix. Very moody and changes from violet-purple to lavender-purple depending on the lighting. It is 8×7.1mm so it is more of a "roval".

    The setting: I chose CvB's Cora setting in 14k WG with rhodium plate. It is soo gorgeous and detailed! Here are Caysie's renders.

    The COLOR of this sapphire is divine! :love::love::love: Thank you so much for posting this thread. I saw your ring on Caysie's IG and my jaw just dropped. I had to see more!

    Does your ring have antiquing? There is a depth to the tone of the metal that I don't usually see in plated WG.
