Hi Breir, welcome to the forum. I’m sorry I can’t help with your question. You should start your own thread so that your question won’t be lost in this other unrelated thread.

I followed your advice and started a new thread. This is a new experience thank you I hope quotes

I heard about this guy before and been following him. I actually consider asking him about an untreated pad in June when it is my birthday. I told you I collect untreated blues but a pad would be awesome in summer. I guess I will just tell him the referral came from PS. We follow each other with @missy and some others but no clue what your names are on insta girls.

I am always wary of telling vendors about Pricescope if they don’t already know about it for sure. It can cause more problems than it solves if they come here and read honest reviews that aren’t overwhelmingly flattering, even if they’re not negative.

If you want, just tell him Kristen posted pictures. He'll let me know to tell you. I just want you guys to feel good about buying. When I bought my first one from him, I thought, well, I don't even know this person on PS who buys from him. She could be a plant. :lol-2: Yes, thank you- I was paranoid.

It's heeeeeere! HIs pictures/videos are all very accurate to its appearance outside (which is where they were taken). Inside it shifts a little bit gray/violet which is what I expected it to do based on other similar sapphires I have seen. I'll probably be sending to GIA next week because I'd like to have that for insurance purposes.

With a couple of other sapphires... couldn't get them all in good lighting at once

turns out I'm terrible at taking pics of sapphires in the sun but I got this one in the shade

It's probably going to be a three-stone with these oecs.... I was trying to find something with a facet pattern and high enough crown that they'd go decently together.

Wowza! It's HUGE and gorgeous! I'm happy you had a good experience. Idk who bought the 4+, but it certainly is stunning! My 3+ ones feel so itty bitty now.

yes those are the OECs from the pendant! I was originally thinking about a fussy art deco sort of dinner ring with them but I never got any replies back when I asked for quotes from different people... now we are doing fertility treatments and will hopefully have a baby soon so I'll want something UNfussy... but I thought maybe a HUGE three-stone would be decent compensation for not having pave :lol:. Ginormous but simple is still unfussy, right? :lol: This will officially be the "fertility treatments suck, plan a pretty shiny to distract yourself" ring. The other option for this ring is a yellow gold floraly setting, no diamonds. But big three stone sounds more like me.

Unless I decide to put it in a pendant. My mom is convinced it should be a pendant. And I DO have plans for two more blue sapphire rings eventually (an emerald cut, and a saturated slightly silky cornflower blue set in yellow gold). I don't know how many blue sapphire rings it is really reasonable to have??????

Thanks!

It's definitely pretty big! And yes the experience was great. Will definitely continue watching his instagram for more, since there are a few other sapphires on my eventual wishlist.

I'll ask him. I did tell him to not be "private" but he doesn't want his customers visible to the competition. I don't know why it's an issue. I would think the person with the best gems, prices, and business practice would get the business.

I've noticed it with a lot of East Asian and South Asian sellers. The hate posting prices and going private is very common. I think it's different cultural norms where talking about money is gauche and reserved for only when necessary. Also, secrecy equals exclusivity and prestige.

I just prefer when they post prices for the sheer convenience!

Old European Cut, a style of round diamond cut that was done around 100 or so years ago before round brilliants

Gotcha! I've always known them as just European cut, but the deafening are old. Thanks for the knowledge.

Hi all. I am eyeing on a sapphire from CeylonSapphire. I kinda wonder if you will negotiate with them after they quote the price? I am not sure about the practice, because in some countries, the seller will mark up the price for room for negotiations. TIA!

I have asked him if there is room to budge on the price so it's worth a shot if you feel comfortable.

For the PSers who purchased from CeylonSapphireGems before, does the stone take long to arrive?

I received three of my sapphires within about 10 days. This last one I bought has taken longer, but I'm guessing the gem authority that clears them for export is very busy. He wasn't sure when the item would clear for export, and gave me two dates a week apart. All gems have to go through this agency for export.

After two weeks, my purchase arrived yesterday. It took a bit of time for its arrival but it worths it.

I got this 4.99ct pink sapphire from Ceylon Sapphire Gems. I love the light color and the spark of it. The vendor is very patience and answered all my questions. Like all other said, the vendor photos and videos are very accurate to the actual stone. Here are the vendor photo and some photos I took indoor. Sorry for not having a chance to take some photos with outdoor light.

Wow! The pink looks even more vivid in your photos than the vendor's. That's very promising :kiss2:

Ok having serious FOMO over these awesome stones. Alas must build bling budget up to something a tad less embarrassing.
