Pricescope Upgrade/Maintenance Is Complete.
We still have a few things to iron out. If you see any bugs, issues or have any concerns, let us know here in this discussion.
It doesn’t have cert but is from one of the trusted vendor, price wise less than $600. I’m not after the size, mainly looking for bright yellow color. Some part of it shows the color I like, especially in picture 3, but the other is like not sure.It’s too orange for my taste but a lot of colored stones is personal taste. It has a cert to confirm it’s not BE treated? That color in yellow sapphire often suggests BE treatments
Cut is not precision but I’ve seen worse for sure
I did browse through their website, the two yellow sapphires under 1k are pastel in color? especially the studio shots are a little gray to me.The middle is a bow tie effect. It is an artefact of the cutting. Have you looked at finewatergems? They have a few yellow sapphires.
i have a pendant project in mind and the theme is about moon and cloud. I’m not sure if it is realistic, I want the main stone to be in round or oval shape, have the color that remind me soft yellow moon like this. I narrowed down the type to be yellow sapphire or chrysoberyl, no treatment or heat only.To me it looks the color of a lower grade spessartite garnet going by the picture.
What shade of yellow are you looking for are you looking for?
This looks nice, but I’m after a loose stone not for a ring right now. By the way, your avatar yellow sapphire is Amazing!This isn’t my ring so hopefully no one gets mad about this, but my brother is selling a sapphire ring with a similar color -
Agree that it is not exactly that soft yellow I'm after, I'm wondering if it is a common thing with yellow chrysoberyl that most will have a greenish undertone. I don't see brown in it. Oh but it sparkles, holding its brilliance under dime light when compared with my garnet and tourmaline...still on the fence.Wouldn't be the color for me if I were looking for yellow, but YMMV.
I don't dislike it, just not my thing, and it doesn't quite seem like it's hitting that soft yellow that you're after.
Yellow is a very difficult color to nail down.
I saw a yellow sapphire at mastercutgems that looks nice. It's smaller than the other stones you've posted, but I like the color, and maybe it gives a reference: https://www.mastercutgems.com/Products-251-Ruby_and_Sapphire/10066-Sri_Lanka_Natural_Yellow-Blue_Sapphire_1_16_carat-Gem.php?FromPage=1
true green, not oily green, in chrysoberyls is beautiful. Some of them shift to green in different lights, and the ones that don’t are less interesting, JMO.A lot of chrysoberyl does have that greenish tone, but not all. There are also occasionally yellow garnets that pop up, and heliodore can be that nice soft yellow as well.
