    If you don’t like it, holler at me. I’ve been wanting a round yellow sapphire, though lighter in color. I’m very interested to see how your pics come out and if you like it.

    I hope I got it! I’m still waiting for a confirmation from Gene. It’s possible someone beat me to it and he just hadn’t marked it sold on his site yet. I’ll update as soon as I find out :D.

    I totally get that. I’ve had that happen to me a couple times (with different vendors).

    Crossing my fingers for you. I really hope you get it! I still have a yellow sapphire on my wishlist so I’m living vicariously through you here. Lol

    Thanks, that makes me feel a bit better! I still love the original stone, but wasn't my first choice for color.

    I woke up to a PayPal refund from Gene, so it looks like I didn’t get the yellow sapphire :(2. It’s okay though, I really should put that money toward setting a stone I already have! I hope another PSer got it and will share pictures :D.

    That’s a bummer. :(sad
    I’m totally with you on settings. I need to stop buying new things and just set what I already have. :shifty:

    It was me...admittedly, an impulse buy...I didn't hear back until this morning and so assumed when you posted, that it went to you. If I decide not to keep, you can have first dibs.

    Will do. I bought it because I don't own a yellow sapphire except melee size...but that's largely because yellow isn't exactly a good fit with my skin tone. So I think it will depend on whether I'm inspired to set it in a halo of some sort.

    Not sure if I will keep or sell. It doesn't go well with my skin tone. But I have some denim colored benitiote melee which it pairs well with..but I only have enough for a single halo and I prefer more finger coverage. Thoughts?

    It's beautiful for sure, but somehow I see a green secondary that I don't love. But that might just be pics, since I know accurate colors are sometimes impossible to capture on camera.

    It’s so pretty! :love: I think it looks fantastic with your skin tone, but if you decide to sell it, I would definitely take you up on the first dibs offer :)). I do think it looks right at home on your hand though!

    Admittedly, I don't see any green modifier in the stone. Maybe my eyes aren't as sensitive to it or it's the monitor.

    Give me a day or two to think about it. If I can't figure out how to set it with the benitoites in something I'd wear, it's yours.

    No, it's probably just me! I really like it, but somehow it looked yellower in the vendor pics, so that's probably what I'm reacting to. It's very lovely though and looks great on you!

    . You are correct in seeing a difference. In his listing, I saw a deeper golden yellow than it is IRL (which is more a lemon yellow). The funny thing thing is I hesitated because of his photo as I am super sensitive to brown secondaries in yellow stones...but bought based on his description.

    EXACTLY! Maybe my brain is trying to understand the difference between sunflower yellow (which is what I saw in his pics) vs lemon yellow (what I see in yours), and my brain interprets the difference as green. Haah who knows, Im not great w colors!

    It’s gorgeous and, personally, I think it looks great on your skin tone. :mrgreen2:
    The blue halo would be beautiful and a fun color combo.

    Ooops...I just realized that my email address on the listing was wrong. Corrected it now.

    I just noticed that Gene’s offering a 10% discount on any of his Umba sapphires with code UMBA
