These two sapphires I panned myself and got to see them from rough to cut. I was going for a rustic/organic look which I am happy about the results. Both stones are around 5mm.

This is so awesome!!! Congrats on these two beauties!!! Very cool that you were able to literally see these stones from start to finish. Love the colors! Were these heated or natural stones? Sorry if I missed that info on another thread.

Hi. Thanks they were both heat treated only, but the green sapphire was around that color naturally and they heated it to clear up inclusions mainly

I love these I feel like they look almost like you just pulled them out of the ground that way. So earthy!

I love them both. Are you intending to wear them as a set? Could you say what color the blue sapphire was before heating, was it already blue?

Hi. I actually have been wearing them like in the pictures, cuase it looks like the are soldered together. The blue sapphire was almost white with a blue tint that deepened with heat treatment :)

beautiful stones and rings! I have panned the (salted) places a couple times, but nothing worth faceting and wearing!

I think this project is just so cool. I think the rustic settings are really suited to the stones. The stones colors are so pretty and go so well with the yellow gold. They look like something that can be worn everyday or for any occasion. :clap:

Love these rings and love that you found the sapphires yourself. I too love the organic/rustic feel/look of these rings. Love the brushed gold too. Just beautiful! :love:

I love sapphires with a story. Self-found! what could be greater?
And since you found them like that, they will also be 100% untreated. WOW. Super.
And the setting is just perfect for the story.
