I recently upgraded by blue sapphires - both for my ring and my studs. I also trade in an orange sapphire for a yellow sapphire.

The YG blue sapphire ring has now had 3 round sapphires on it. I had a .97 carat 6mm, then a 1.56 6.5mm round and now this is a 1.79 carat 7mm sapphire. The YG setting has 4 pointers round diamond accents.

The earrings are my 3rd pair starting with 4mm rounds, then 4.5mm and now 5 mm.

The platinum ring has .39 ctw side diamonds and the yellow sapphire is a square cushion 2.13 carats 7mm. I had a 5.5mm round sapphire in this ring before.

The yellow sapphire has been challenging to capture in photos. It goes from bright yellow to golden yellow (reminds me of yellow beryl) and so fiery I get a lot of reflection back on the pictures.

I am a fan of upgrades - it's nice having a huge down payment towards a larger gemstone.

Marcy, these sapphires are just gorgeous. :love: :appl: I love them and they look so good on you. It's amazing how you can choose these mesmerizing colors. I love them and can stare at them all the day long. Thank you for sharing so many beautiful pictures. They look different in each picture. I am a lover of blue, but that yellow is just YUMMY. :lickout:

Thank you Luv2sparkle. I go to a place in Denver that has a great upgrade policy. You only have to spend a $1.00 more than what you trade in. I've taken advantage of that policy many times over the years.

Lovely upgrades congrats!!! You are so lucky you have a store where you can upgrade most CS vendors don't do that.

Thank you JJDN. The yellow sapphire really has a lot of fire but it has been hard to capture in photos. My hunt for a nice blue sapphire is what started me down the path to my current colored gemstone collection.

Thank you MissGotRocks. When I go in for an upgrade I always tell them up front I want sapphires that are royal blue.

Thank you arkieb1. I think it’s awesome I can upgrade my sapphires and rubies there as easily as I can diamonds. It makes it nice. They allow you to trade in jewelry for another piece of jewelry but on that the new piece has to be double what you paid for the first piece.

Thank you aac2013. Silly me I worried I would think the yellow sapphire was too big but I quickly realized that wasn’t going to be a problem.

Thank you PintoBean. That shade of blue seems like a perfect shade for a blue sapphire.

Thank you Michelle. I love your luscious yellow diamond.

Thank you Junebug. I am really enjoying the yellow sapphire. It is so different from anything else I have.

Thank you Sarahb. Blue and yellow are my favorite color so it’s nice to have them in sapphires.

Thank you CRYSTAL24K. I have gotten quicker at knowing what I like and what I don't. I guess it's from practice. :bigsmile:

Thank you Sphene. I finally got to see the yellow sapphire with a lot of direct sun and it had a lot of fire. I am always driving when I see it though so can’t get a picture.

Thank you Missy. I love yellow and blue together but of course I can only wear one of my sapphire rings at once.
