Not the tone I wanted. It was too teal in the sunlight in Florida.Did he mislead your or just turned out to not be what you were looking for when you saw it?
I can vouch for their niceness, and they are one of the shops that don't just sell gems, but can make jewelry as well.
They're located in a part of Canada that makes it not practical for them to get lab reports. They do offer third-party appraisals, but that's just not the same thing. So I'd definitely recommend them for gems that don't typically have treatments or are routinely treated in the same way, such as oiled emeralds.
However, I personally (since I decided I would only buy unheated sapphire) would hesitate for corundum and have not pulled the trigger on ruby or sapphire from them. Just thought I'd put it out there because we on PS routinely tell newbies to get lab reports on higher end gems. I am also that person who has never recommended a CS vendor who sells only via Instagram, because it's not a proper business platform that offers buyer protection.
