I made this sapphire ring with deBebian’s a few year’s ago with with a 4.76 center natural sapphire that I inherited. I love this ring but the darkness in the center bugged me which meant I didn’t reach for this ring as often as I should. It was just too expensive of a setting to let it sit in a ring box. Since the center is quite a large,, I decided to look for a high quality lab. I got this beautiful bluish/purple perwinkle sapphire that is 12x10. I also made a small change to the pear’s to lift them up. They originally were pinned down because I was worried about the width of the bridge across my finger. After receiiving the ring, I can see it wasn’t going to be a problem so I raised the .66 tcw VS1 G pear’s to make it look more like a proper 3 stone. I am waiting on another ring right now before this ships but I wanted to post pics of the changes.

The old sapphire feels like it is meant to be in something like a Princess Di halo. I might try something with some large halo rosecuts or OEC’s to give it a vintage look since it is a very old stone. I am super happy with the color. It is a nice match to go with the station necklace he made me last year. The two together are a quick dress up for a jeans look. I will post some pics/videos when I receive it.

I am a little sad that my jeweler has a smaller and nicer finger than me!

Absolutely GORGEOUS! Yes, that is a Debebian's mounting--such exquisite craftsmanship. I also think it is going to go great with your necklace. I'm so happy for you!
I'm looking forward to seeing what you will do with your inherited sapphire too. Your proposed design sounds lovely :).

What a beautiful, beautiful ring! Congratulations on a wonderful addition to your collection! And I agree with everyone else - the new sapphire is a huge improvement and makes your ring look super luxe!

Can I ask you what diameter the stones are in your DBTY necklace? It's so pretty!

Lovely pieces, @swaye2010!

Thank you. It is a huge improvement in color. The darkness was making me sad and I spent so much on the setting that I wanted to wear it more. I actually had them send me the sapphire first Just to make sure and it has so beautiful movement.

The DBTY necklace has 4mm stones. I bought 8 perwinkle precision cut sapphire’s from Jim Buday on our gemstone reddit group. I had a diamond 5 stone and a pair of diamond earrings that had 4 mm stones that I never wore anymore. We put those 7 stones into the necklace to make a 15 station 36 inch white gold chain and they were sprinkle set. I drew it on paper and we played around with it until it looked just right. it is a little more fun to wear something unique. I sometimes stack it with a shorter solitaire I have.

Wow, it's truly night and day! Gorgeous stone, gorgeous setting, and a gorgeous pairing with the station necklace. And even though your original sapphire is dark, I think it will be scrumptious with a lush halo.

Lovely shade of blue. And the proportions of the pears are perfect! Do you mind sharing your ring size?

I wear a size 8 but someone asked me to borrow my original CAD and shrunk it down slightly in the stone sizes even though it wasn’t really necessary. He wanted to surprise his girlfriend with a ring in this design so bought a 2 carat mined sapphire similar to this color and had it made in a 4.5 finger size. It was really gorgeous in that size too.
