Oh gosh - the other one landed on my doorstep this AM - huge surprise! Last status update was that it was still stuck in Memphis!

It is absolutely beautiful - where the bigger pink stone is whimsical and magical, this one is ethereal and ultra feminine - it has a gorgeous, delicate sparkle, and a soft lilac/baby pink color. It is soft and delicate. The window is obvious, but the color is just gorgeous, so I don't care.

Oooooh I love them both!!!!

It'll be a while before I can afford to set either - if you have read my other threads we've had a recent pet emergency that set us back a pretty penny. BUT - I can enjoy and admire my beautiful new stones for months while I wait!

Here are some pictures!!!!

So glad you decided to buy both. They look amazing and completely unique from one another. Congrats on your two new shinies!

I’m glad too! Thank you so much! :)

@Cerulean, did you get any lab reports for either of these stones? I’m considering a silky blue sapphire right now, same price range as your sapphire, and wonder if I should ask for a cert or wait for it to arrive and send it to my local lab. The milkiness itself is a sign that it’s unheated right?

Yes, milky/silky type inclusions suggest natural stones, so I wouldn't worry too much about stones like this being unnatural

I didn’t bother getting reports and probably won’t - I might be more risk tolerant than other PSers...

both stones were well under $1k, and appeared visibly natural as @lovedogs mentioned - the pinker one had visible carbon inclusions and color zoning on top of milkiness

Super excited to see your sapphire! Please share with us!

I did it, I bought it! The seller is including a CGL report for free. The price is so good for these silky stones compared to trade ideal, I couldn't resist. Fingers crossed that I'll love it and I'll start my own thread so I won't hijack yours.

Congrats on your new purchase! Hope it ships quickly and turns out to be even better than in pics.
