Wink sent me the pic of the sapphire I just bought. He received the stone today, but hasn''t had time to take a video of it. Here is a pic:

Beautiful stone! What are you planning for the setting? Isn''t your other ring by Maytal?

Thanks, LtFirecracker, Kaleigh, Skippy, innerkitten and diamondseeker!

Diamondseeker, wow you have quite a memory! My engagement ring is by Maytal. This stone is going to go into Coatimundi''s James Meyer setting. I''ve already talked to him. I''d like the shank to be white gold, and perhaps the "wraps" to be yellow gold. Jim suggested that I have him make the bezel yellow gold as well, because he thinks blue sapphires look good in yellow. I don''t know because maybe it will be too much contrast? Or maybe the platinum bezel would deaden the color? I want the ring to come off as more "white" than yellow though, because I have been more into white metals lately. What do you all think? If the shank is white and the wraps are yellow, should the bezel be yellow gold or platinum? Or should the whole ring be white? (platinum bezel, white gold shank, platinum wraps) So confused-ha ha! Help!

Yay, I just posted that JM ring all by myself! My DH had to help me post the picture of the sapphire. I am computer illiterate as a general rule-lol!

Lovely stone. Great color. It would look dynamite in that setting too.

Oh Cind11!!!! That is going to be a fabulous ring. Aren''t Wink and Richard wonderful to work with! I envy you for knowing just how you want to set your sapphire. I am suffering from setting committment. But I digress. You have a beautiful sapphire!!!

Gorgeous sapphire, and I think the setting will be beautiful - I am more of a single-tone person but that is just me - maybe one of the photoshop experts can help out with a visual

Wait until you see the stone before deciding on anything. Color could be a bit diferent than the photo suggests (you never know).

Gorgeous stone! The blue is almost electric.

I agree with the others who said to wait until you see it in person. I am not much of a two-tone person but I do think that you could get away with a YG bezel and wraps. IMHO, yellow and blue were just meant to be together.

That stone looks AMAZING


I vote for yellow gold wraps and a white metal bezel, because I tend to prefer the tones that white metals bring out in sapphires, but I think it will be beautiful either way.

Thanks secondhandnews. I actually haven''t talked to Richard, but Wink is such a nice guy. I think my stone is your stone''s little sister-lol. I would have loved to have bought a stone of your size. I saw the JM ring and just knew that was it! Hopefully, your setting will jump out at you too!

The last time I talked to Jim Meyer, I told him I thought I had a sapphire. So, I never asked him how long it would take. Wink still has the sapphire. I hope (maybe) he''ll ship it to me on Monday?

Yes, you''re right. I should wait until I actually see the stone before deciding anything. But it is fun to think about!

Wait a second, you get the maylay and this baby? Lucky you. I bet it''s more lovely in person than in the photo. C''mon Wink, no video?

Enjoy! Do you get to see it in person before it''s set?

LostSapphire, I LOVE your sapphire-so gorgeous!

Mercoledi, I have been a bit over the top buying both these stones but... What can I say?

Yes, I am going to have Wink send me the stone first and then I''ll send it to JM.

Wink said he''d take the video today. I hope he''ll post it, because I probably won''t know how!

Thanks, Geckodani. JM seemed to think the yellow gold bezel would be best. That''s why I''m glad I get to see the stone first. Then maybe I can play around with it and maybe I''ll know the direction I should go in for the metal color.

2 stunning sapphires from Richard Homer in traditional flat faceting!
It cheers me up to see such quality gemstones.

Gosh, I hope you don''t mind, I shipped it to you moments after I finished the video that I sent you earlier. You will have it tomorrow.
