Same gem btw! Must be my exceptional (not) iPhone photo skills.
    Barbie the Punk (I keep accidentally doing this) is next, I chose a pre loved setting from Ivy and Rose because I like 1980s style. Something a bit different.
    She will return and I can show her off properly.

    I call it a deep Pink Sapphire.
    The saying goes “it depends on who you ask, the seller says Ruby, the buyer says sapphire”.
    In some cultures any pink sapphire is still referred to as a Ruby, the GIA and AGL say “predominately red toned = ruby”. But even that is subjective and as my photos show, the colour can look more pink or more red depending on the light and time of day.
    For me anyway, I say pink sapphire.

    Barbie the Punk is gorgeous. I love the rich pink color. :love: What are the dimensions?
    Can’t wait to see her set and on your finger. :dance:

    Wow, Barbie is beautiful! I’m reluctant to call anything that’s not RED a ruby, but she is definitely one hell of a sapphire! So, are you going to find her a new home then after she’s set? I don’t know the story of why your parting with your gems, but I have a feeling you’ll have trouble parting with this beauty. =)2

    Barbie is a 6.5mm round, 1.28 carats. Not huge but packs a lot of vividness.
    No, I’m keeping her, she is just visiting the US to get set by Ivy & Rose and then she comes back home.:appl:

    Love the color and the glow. Ruby? Sapphire? Who cares?! Barbie's got glam! I would not have had the vision to choose that setting, but now that I see your vision, I love it! :love:
