    Beautiful with that 18K gold - it really sets off that stone.

    Thanks for the positive feedback! I put alot of time and care into finding this stone and worked closely with the artist to bring my vision to life. I gave her photos of antique Russian rings for inspiration, that I found on pinterest. Most of the photos I liked led me to romanov Russia. Next on the list; an untreated sapphire with the same inspirations!

    @Corbes55 Good job on that, sir. Do you recall what your artist charged for her design fee?

    A good friend of mine who is a GIA GG sourced the stone for me. I payed a little over wholesale for it but I didnt mind because it is truly a top quality stone. 2.33CT , GIA report, eye clean, high fluorescence, Slight purplish Red (stunning vivid red in incandescent) with an excellent cut, Mozambique origin
    *And no indications of heating, of course

    The end cost after taxes was around 4700$ CDN for the ring. It weighs about an ounce. She charges like $100 an hour for the design, I think it was 800-1000$ for the actual wax carving. And she charges a premium on the gold, which I happily pay because i think she is top shelf! 100/gram.
