Spess finally arrived! Unlike most I’ve had in the past, it’s pretty much straight up orange, not yellowish. I’ve left it in the box because I’ve been really tired and didn’t trust myself! Took a pic with my other spess, which has a kiss of red in it, for comparison. Solo pic is indoors, comparison pic is outside on a cloudy day 1A61A21C-0E9F-4160-AC1E-AF63B5344962.jpeg 37F0DF01-59A7-496E-A0F1-3683490BB4A7.jpeg

You're not the only one, Elle. I sent in my order for it. It is such a luscious hot pink, and he had me at OEC. Perhaps I'm not the first one to see your update here, though. Did anyone else go for the order on that pink sapphire?

I’ll cross my fingers for you. It’s a gorgeous color and we just don’t see enough gems with an OEC cut. :love:

Nope, it was sold right before my own order. I'm still on the hunt for the next OEC in a color I like.

@voce Ugh! So frustrating when the happens! I was thrilled that I didn't "need" anything from today's drop. :lol-2: I was tempted, though!

That pink is stunning! A question for fellow members and experienced consumers, can this be considered the top colour of pink sapphire? I saw it’s given a colour rating of 10 by Gene, just like a previous 1.6ct pink sapphire not long ago.

It’s a nice pink sapphire, and you just always need to be wary about color shifts in various lighting to a color less desirable to you. Always ask about that when considering any gem.

Sorry you didn't get this! Was hoping to see real life photos from A PSer, that color looks so lovely!

I went back and forth like 5 times, putting it in the cart then removing it, was somewhat relieved when it showed up as sold then came back and was available again so... I bought the lab blue sapphire. I need another lab stone like I need a hole in my head but couldn't resist that blue color. Would it be my holy grail blue sapphire color? All my previous ones have been a bit too light and too much purple, hoping this is more pure blue.

I might be putting some lab stones up for sale to make up for this one...

OMG awesome! You're amazing! I also took the advice of @PinkAndBlueBling and emailed Gene to see if he had any more rough. I know I've been absent for awhile, but I love this community!

Hey, do you still want the stone? It's beautiful but I realized that I want more of a cool gem (blue/green/purple/etc), as I am new to colored stones I'm exploring.

No intents of budging in line in front of @mdi
As I’m not in the market for any new stones-
But can you share some photos of it? Multiple lighting environments?

Here's a few pics and video. I'm terrible at taking them as the stone is like a glowy red that shifts to glowy red/pink and peach.

@mdi You have dibs, I'll probably list it for sale.

Sorry! I just saw this! Yes, I want it! I'll send you my email via DM.

ETA: Ugh, I forgot we can't do that on here (I don't think?) -- if you make a post on LoupeTroop, I'll message you there!
