by MaroonWhite » Jul 15, 2017 Hello everyone. I just recently was steered to this forum and its absolutely terrific so far. So much great information! I was wanting to get some thoughts on a pear shaped blue sapphire for an engagement ring. Has anyone seen any available that they thought particularly highly of? Something not to deep with good color and size. My budget for just the stone is up to $6K. I can go a little higher if I find a stone that I particularly like or recommended. Also, I know there is a extensive vendor list, but if there is any particular group of vendors I should look at that anyone recommended, I'd really appreciate it! I'm slightly overwhelmed by it all and just done want to make a mistake. Thanks again for all the great information so far and hopefully look forward to hearing some feedback anyone has.
