It's amazing! So much prettier than I ever dreamed it would be. Here's what he said about it: "Finished with the sapphire! I am quite pleased with the way it turned out. The inclusion I was worried about did not cut out, as I thought it might not. However, the stone faces up very clean, and the inclusion in question is quite hard to spot. Also, a slight reorientation of the stone helped lighten it up considerably and adjust for some zoning that is present in the stone. As a result, it faces up a very even blue and is not overly-dark. The vitals are: 6.3 mm and 1.47 ct. Attached are a couple of photos for you! Please let me know what you think."

ETA: sorry - the pictures are out of order

I was lucky that he had the rough already, but from start to finish it was about 6 weeks.

Athena ~

Jeff is a CS god, I swear! Congrats on the sapphire turning out so beautifully. Now, you cannot possibly use that 'paltry' word when referring to your collection.

Just incredible. :love:

I don't feel right saying exactly what my budget was, and I went a bit over anyway, but I have a feeling it's going to be totally worth it.

I cropped some pics to see if I could see the facets better so I thought I'd share here too. Sorry - I'm excited.
Edit: Ha! That didn't really work. Well, you get to see the pictures again. Sorry :oops:
