Finally received my sapphire today after FedEx holding it all weekend and not allowing me to pick it up. As soon as I opened the package, I knew I made the right decision. This is my first lab gemstone and the brightness in the color is exactly what this setting needed. I will be putting the inherited mined sapphire in a Princess Di type halo. It wasn’t a bright enough stone fo a 3 stone and really needs a halo because of the dark center. The mined is just under 5 carats and the new one is 6 carats. We had to do a new CAD for the top. We also tipped the pears up a little higher so they wouldn’t blend into the platinum as much. The whole thing looks so so much brighter...

This is a 12x10 purplish blue lab sapphire that I bought from Debebian’s to go with a setting they made me a few year’s ago. The setting is diamond/platinum with .66 tcw G VS side stones shown with a diamond eternity ring also in platinum with 8 pointer’s (3mm wide). The weather wasn’t great for a video but here are a few pics and a short one. The darkness is just a shadow from my phone.

Very nice color on the lab sapphire! I have loved this particular ring from your collection for a while, and the makeover was really a great decision.

I was at the hairdresser yesterday and everyone was grabbing my hand to look at it. It is funny how many times I have improved on this setting but I have you to thank for the color. When I saw your’s it was in the back of my mind for a long time until this one came up and fit. There is just something about colored stones that seem to catch my eye more than diamonds lately...

I'm not surprised they were grabbing your hand :). It is SO beautiful. My lab blue sapphire, (StagandFinch), in my custom Debebians mounting got a hand grab from a guy! I'm so glad you're enjoying it!
