I stalked your old posts and couldn''t ID it, it looks like a beautiful old cut- can you tell me more or point me to the thread? Thanks!

My sapphire? It''s a "new" cut, from Barry Bridgestock but he definitely cuts nice big chunky facets.

Photos ad nauseam here https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/finally-completed-blue-sapphire-project-times-two.108347/

So glad you asked, because I have been dying to know myself. I thought it was an OEC with flour. It is gorgeous.

Thanks, BizouMom. Glad you like it! I''ve been kind of debating about starting a SMTR thread as well, so more people can learn about the fab color gemstones world, but it seemed like a bit of overkil.

DG- I''m glad to see you''re around again! I think it''s lovely that you and bf are on the same page, especially when it comes to baguettes. It''s important to talk about these important issues before marriage

IceKid,
Your ring is one of my absolute favorites.
I am hoping to have my sapphire set in the next two months, and it is a very similar color.

I plan to read through your thread. I need a different setting idea than yours because my engagement ring is set with the tapered baguettes. I am wondering, since so many people here wonder what the stone is from the avatar, do people know it is a sapphire in real life?
