    So, my boyfriend of almost 4 years proposed to me yesterday!!!

    It is a deep purple sapphire measuring 8mm x 8mm. It is a cushion cut with a 14kt white gold halo setting. I wanted the halo and the band to be super-dainty so it looked sparkly but not ostentatious. The sapphire is a very rich purple with strong flashes of a raspbery red, especially in incandescent light. It has just enough flash for me without being overwhelming.

    I love it and I wanted to share :)

    (the pictures aren''t the best- I had a really hard time catching the flash in the stone)

    That is gorgeous! Would you mind posting it in the Coloured Stone section as well? Some of us coloured stone fanatics don''t wander here so often and everyone should see this beauty!

    And finally- showing a little bit of the raspberry!

    I just noticed in the first pic there is a lot of dust on the sapphire- it looks like inclusions but it was just dust. [​IMG]

    Lady Disdain- can I post the same pics in two different forums? I''m not super versed on the ins and outs of pricescope''s rules on that.

    Colored stones is usually where I hang out- but I didn''t know where this belonged.

    Thanks!
