the stone is from Gene at precision Gems and the ring is from American Set

I am very pleased iwth the finished results. it is a bit moody but it''s a very nice blue in most moods :) it''s occasional outbreaks of temper just give it personality and it''s still pretty even then, just not a serious blue color.

it looks best under direct sunlight and flourescent lighting and the worst is brought out under grey rainy sky..(but who can''t say that?)


this first pic is sunny sky but not direct light

Thanks! it amazed me how different a stone looks set than when you have it loose. that''s why I had the sudden change of heart over this stone after seeing it in a number of settings at the custom place from just seeing it in it''s little gem box. it just comes to life set!

Chrono, it just glows like that. it''s like that in natural daylight. :) even today when I was driving home from work and it was grey and overcast, it was glowing. it''s a very neat stone. it''s got about four different colors or shades of blue that are prominent in different lights.

VERY pretty! The setting really showcases the sapphire!

Would sure love to see a handshot (or 2...)

hand shots are coming!

Chrono, what do you think the glow means? do you think it was mined at the bottom of a nuclear reactor :)

Of course not.
It''s probably some microscopic inclusion that disperses the light differently. It could also be fluorescence, but I think it''s the first one.
