It's best to open them now and inspect them / view them in various lighting. If you wait until Sunday, it cuts down your return period window.

I do understand that it's more fun and exciting to wait to open them up on your birthday though.

I''m really happy with them, they sparkle like mad and I love the color. The picture on the website is really accurate. I would/will purchase from again!

MustangFan, they are simply divine!!! OMG, the ear pic is to die for, the stone looks like it is glowing on your ear. I just love the color and can't wait to see the finished version.

Gorgeous, and they look like a very good match to your e-ring!!! What a lovely velvety color!! Now that you''ve purchased from simplysapphires, out of curiosity how well would you say the color in person matches to the picture from the vendor? I''m in the market for a sapphire as well and I''m not sure where to buy from.

I posted a picture from their site on the stones, it''s the big one with the haze. I think they are fairly accurate and they say they take 30 pictures to capture the nature of the stone, not to make it better, it''s believable, I''m very happy with them, and it was a great price I feel. I shopped around and didn''t find this color for the price. Simply Sapphire is alright in my books

Diamondfan- I am talented! I had to twist the camera around and look at the mirror, while pushing the button with my other hand! lol

SDL--

Unfortunately I felt funny taking a picture of the wax, so I didn''t. I have a hand drawn picture of the mounting, but that''s it not even a CAD


It has 7 pointer diamond pear sides with melee around them
The head of the sapphire will have a heart shape with a bezel set surprise sapphire in the middle
and a custom euro setting

I love your ring, you inspired me to look into the plain 3mm w-band I love your set so beautiful and classic
