I''ve seen a nice cushion cut padparadscha that I''m thinking of buying. Any ideas for a nice cheap setting under $800. I love to put it in a halo.
I just wanted to jump in and try to address at least a couple of your questions..Date: 1/9/2007 5:27:19 PM
I am sooo excited about this thread! My boyfriend and I have just started ''the ring'' talks and since I''m not really a diamond girl I was left with the question... ''well what stone do you want?'' Through the fun Colored Stones- E-Ring/ Eye Candy and all of the ever so helpful pictures and threads I fell into the natural sapphire company and more specifically padparadscha sapphires (and the cognac also!). I know nothing about gems, but my eyes have fallen in love!!! I know I am kind of taking this thread on a tangent, but are there specific things that I should be looking for in a stone that I can figure out online, or is it mostly by sight? I have seen Natural Sapphire and Handpicked both say that people can order stones to see and then send them back, is this really done? Is it proper etiquette to look at stone from one company and then order from another in the end? Is there any place in Chicago that deals in sapphires? Are sapphires a much better deal online then they are at a b&m store? ok, I know that is a ton of questions any help you knowledgeable gem loves can throw my way would be much appreciated!
