It was 11 pm, 2 glasses of wine in, hubby snoring. My phone notified that an ebay listing I was watching had 15 minutes left. I noticed that the current bid was the same as it had been for days, so why not. These items always go up like crazy in the last minute or so. I entered a bid- "You are the current high bidder". It stayed that way until it said You won.
This was a completely unplanned purchase. I have 2 projects currently rolling, and also hunting for a pink sapphire or spinel. But here I am, new owner of a blue sapphire ring.

Stats- 3.2 ct GIA heated sapphire with 2.0 cts diamonds in a heavy 15 gram platinum setting. It's a little bit Dynasty, but I kinda love that about it! It isn't the top shade of blue, but has zero gray or violet modifier so can completely tick the "blue sapphire" box that my pastel blue and my avatar sapphire doesn't. I can't seem to capture the same shade my eye sees though. To me it's gorgeous. I'm a happy camper!

Now to show hubby because he assumed when I said I have a package it was one of my projects completed :lol:

Serendipitous, that's what you're going to tell people.;)2
It's lovely, and mountain of platinum? It's a definite score!

@Mreader , @ItsMainelyYou @elle_71125 thank you! Yes, I really feel like a got a great deal, which made me a little suspicious. I had told myself to be prepared to be disappointed in person. I knew it wasn't a vivid royal or conflower like some PSers have, but it has no window, is VS in clarity, and isn't so inky it looks black. Another bonus is it was sold as a size 6.5 and I thought I would have to size it down but it is smaller than that and the with the wide band I won't have to!

I am gonna take her in for some wonky prong work which I saw in the vendor's pics but the stone is very secure. The platinum could use some polishing maybe, but I don't mind the patina and probably won't.

My kind of ring... she is a honker!! I love that you're not afraid of a bold ring, even though you have delicate hands. Enjoy that beauty!

The ring is beautiful! And I think the sapphire is very serene, like a deep cool lake. I love the chunky platinum setting. Just wait a little while more, it will be all the rage in fashion again ;)2
