Yay! The sapphire I bought from Gary Braun (Finewater Gems) has been set by Sally in her Nur setting. I asked her to use her highest carat yellow gold and she used 20/21 k :twirl: For those who wonder, the sapphire is .93 carat round, VVS clarity, royal blue Sri Lankan sapphire (heated but no other treatment). Here are the photos she shot. I cannot wait to get it in the mail. I will update this thread with real life hand shots once I have the ring in my hands :appl: So thrilled!

WOW look at the yellow on that high carat gold! That's gorgeous!

Sally's work is just wonderful isn't it? The twisted shank is to die for.

Let's hope it gets to you quickly!!!

I think this is my fav. Heart of Water setting! I also think it's cute that both vendors refer to the water of gems.

Was it difficult logistically to send the stone to Sally in Thailand and have it returned? Are their customs fees on both sides?

Thanks everyone :) I will upload handshots the moment I get it. Pregcurious, it was super easy to ship to Thailand. Sally sent me a looooong list of very detailed instructions. I was shooting bullets when I went to the post office as I was freaked out by the idea of mailing a sappphire in a bubble mailer! But I followed her instructions to a tee and sent it off. She immediately sent me an etsy message upon receiving the package (it took 7 days). I did not have to pay custom fees and it was not very pricey (about 30 bucks). The next time I have to send something to her I will be much less nervous :D

Lovely!

Was the head handmade as well or is it manufactured?

I'm pretty sure Sally (or her benchpeople) handmake all the settings just like Daniel M.

I forgot how popular Sally used to be on here before JKT and Daniel M came into the picture. It seems no one really uses her anymore, though i will say it is a pain in the rear to ship stuff to her in Thailand.

Those pictures show the beauty of the ring even more clearly than the vendor pics! :love:

I hope you don't mind, but i have asked sally for a quote to set my 5.8mm Mahenge spinel in a Nur. I was looking at simple settings, but getting distracted by twist bands, so maybe it would be clever to combine the two...! :wink2:

I love the gold/sapphire combo! and the twist band is fantastic!

I looove HoW, and Sally is just the sweetest person. I have slowly been expanding my collection from her, just received lotus studs not too long ago :love: For entirely handmade pieces they are extremely well done imo :halo:

Your photo just proves that Gary has an excellent eye for color! His sapphires are really beautiful. The ring looks awesome on your hand. Does the stone hold its color well?

The spinel is bright and beautiful.
