What a stunner? What's the price range for something like this? I'd assume over 10k
Oh not at all. It's set in platinum with 0.63ct diamonds weighing 16g total. From a shop that sells second hand items imported from Japan.
Definitely 4 digit and some haggling.

Congratulations!! It’s beautiful and nicely large:) welcome to the star family on PS! Does it have a name?
Thank you! Im stuck with seaglow at the fair venue waiting for a cab. Inspiration will set in after dinner. Too hungry and am seeing stars (sapphire) haha :)

@YC, you have that amazingly celestial star ring also. Do you have a favorite I’d the 2? Do you ever wear them together?
Bluegemz, nooo.... never together. I am still getting used to larger sized rings and two seems a bit too much for me to handle at the moment. :))

Some star sapphire fun. Wish has been passed to my jeweller to be sent to the lab. I realise it fluoresces with my uv torch but not the 9ct one. So we brought out other lighter coloured star sapphires and though pale, they fluoresce too. Chances are Wish and them are from the same mine at Mogok.

How interesting and fun! Love the pics of more stars. Also, I would LOVE to have one of those giant ones as a desk stone. They are rustic but beautiful.

thinking about lavender stars, there is such a huge range of colors and they look so different. Just browsing lavender stars.

Of these shades of lavender and purple, which would you all chose? Color alone, I think I’d choose these. It’s amazing how they each have such a personality based on star, star color, translucency, hue and tone, etc etc.

Sorry for reposting AGAIN, but I can’t resist this image, ( bottom one) . Lavender is next for me ( or so I hope. But with stars, we never know what we will find.)

I wish! :)

Lavenders and purples probably Ceylon or African. Not much of those in Burma now.

Idk. The vivid purples are stunning but there's something oh so feminine and less in your face with the softer, more muted dusky shades.

Maybe 1 of each? :kiss2:

@Bluegemz All are fine (up to some conventional ranking favoring the transparent & whatnot; leaving the long pink aside), but the first (round, deep purple) is something else - even a cab of such intense colour would be news. Seeing a coloured star (as opposed to white asterism) that is still complete & strong is an event.

Very modest additions. I finally got my black star sapphire and start ruby set. Both of them were cheapies, but Daniel M made them look very nice! Too bad it's dusk.

I love that black star stacker, although despite the color is usually unfavorable I just think that they're so mysterious and fem fatale!
Lovely!

I love it because I snagged it for less than $5 on Ebay, and it's a nice, not-wonky star!
