I was worried the mount was too high. This is actually the customized lower profile.

The purple color is more saturated under incandescent light. It''s more pink purple.

I wish I had a pro-quality camera and capture the ''fire'' of the taaffeite. It has so many facets on the surface, small table though. There are facets on the side which make it even sparkle more. Initially I wanted a solitaire but the side white sapphire pears accompany it very well. Thanks for letting me share!

Wow, we've been waiting for this ring forever. It's gorgeous, but you need to take some macro mode pics with your camera. Need some up close shots on that beauty.

Congratulations on your rare and beautiful treasure.

Thank you so much ladies and gents! I will need to get a loupe and learn how to shoot good pics of the taaffeite. My Sony DSC-W170 does not have a large enough lens to capture it easily.

Thanks again. You PS''ers have helped me alot in deciding on this taaffeite. Via this thread below:

https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/taaffeite-as-center-stone-for-e-ring-pricing-help.98228/

I went to 2 separate jewelers who were dedicated enough to find a jewelry quality taaffeite. There seems to be alot on ebay that are under 1ct and are rough, poorly faceted. So finding this one so fast was very fortunate for us.

I was contemplating on a pad sapphire instead but the color that I want is very very delicate. It will probably take years to find that perfect pad sapphire hue. :) My 5 yr anniversary ring it will be! :)
