Love all these BIG RINGS!!!
So my Sapphire Bombe ring had a beautiful round cut (rare!) 4.55 carat royal blue sapphire in a mid-century platinum and Marquise cut and round cut setting. Probably 4.0 carats of Diamonds.
I actually traded it in so I no longer own it…hence my newest quest for a large cocktail ring!!!!
I actually am not super sad that I no longer own the ring.
I was consolidating my collection and just realized I truly wanted a no-heat no-treatment Sapphire.
Oh and btw…I wore it whenever I felt like it not just for dress. It probably got more wear when I was in my bathrobe than anything
So now I’m on the hunt.
I know no-heat is more of a mind-clean thing but I think there are enough fellow PS-ers who will understand.
Anyway….I have a big Orange Sapphire (9+ carats) that I love and a big Emerald ring so I am on the fence about whether I want a regular everyday Blue Sapphire or whether I want to lean in to my natural “go big or go home” proclivities and buy a Knuckleduster.
I want this next purchase to be investment grade (whatever that really means because jewelry really is NOT the best “investment” but I think telling myself this makes me feel better!) so I am not sure whether it’s better to:
1-buy the best quality sapphire (for example… a 2.0 carat Burma no-heat at $5000/carat
2-buy a 10 carat Ceylon no-heat at $1500/carat
Theoretical of course….so I’m on the hunt!!!
All thoughts/experiences welcome as I think this one over.
