I am hoping you all can help me with a sapphire. I have purchased a few that have not been what I am looking for and returned them but am feeling frustrated. I LOVE yanaazul's ring [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/sapphire-bezel-ring-david-klass.216659/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/sapphire-bezel-ring-david-klass.216659/[/URL] and with a few mods to the setting would like to create that. I particularly like the bezel aspect which is part of my problem. I originally wanted an oval but all I have found and had sent seemed to be dark on half when looking at them on my hand. I would set an oval e/w. I have 2 on the way from Dana at mastercut and have a round that was I think actually the other stone that yanaazul was considering. Gemfix told me that the round I have currently is somewhat silky which is what gives it the glow and lightness that I love in yanaazul's ring in the bezel. I am looking for ~7mm ish stone round or 8x6 oval. I like the gemfix stone but it is more than I wanted to spend. Ideally I would like to max at $1500 for the stone alone but could go higher if I am in love. I just have no idea how to read the photos online to get to what I really want, that glowy rich feel that won't look dark in a bezel. I will try to take pictures of the stones I have but am horrible getting representative photos. Please help me figure out what to look for and how to evaluate online photos! Also if you have any stone recommendations I am open to hearing about those also! Thanks!
