    What a pretty color. How did I not know about this? Are you keeping things from me Suzanne? :love: o_O
    I'd love to see some more pics of that guy. What size is it btw?

    Those are stunning, you should totally go for it :D. I think it may partially be just me. Too much time spent trying to avoid brown in warm coloured stones and grey in cool coloured stones. Now the brown just screams at me the moment I see a warm coloured stone, it is the first and strongest impression I get of a stone. I guess I must see it almost to the exclusion of all else :lol-2:.

    You know I would never hide anything from you!
    I found that it's much harder to buy a gem at a gem show than it is to have one shipped to you. I was so unsure about the stone that I sent it directly to AGL. They said yes, it's a 1.86ct pink sapphire and yes, it's heated.:lol-2: Just like the vendor said...

    It's very pretty...and larger than I was expecting. You should post some pics in the catch all thread so I can ogle them. :whistle:

    someone needs to save my from myself: Aqua center and 2 spinel sides. Only in the $300s total, but I am on a buying hold until I finalize the red CS/CBI purchases. And before I buy anything new I HAVE TO SET SOME STONES!

    But these are just so gorgeous and tempting. grrrrr.

    FB seller is "Fawaz AK", and leena gems on Instagram (looks like the individual is a seller/manager of leena gems). FB links don't usually work, but their instagram is @leenagemslk.

    I have bought quite a few stones from this seller. I've been very happy with the results.

    I’m looking to buy the yellow sapphire ring. I’ve never bought from loupe troop before. Is there anything glaring about the ring I should ask about. Is the gem report with the ring legit? Thanks!

    Saw this in Gary's latest maildrop, and I hope it will go to a good home! Wish I had the money to spare as the colour pops at me!

    I love the ice blue color!! I have a milestone birthday coming up and I've decided I'm getting myself something sparkly. As my gift to me. I have been scouring LT and the preloved section for something that speaks to me. This aquamarine is SINGING to me. I've asked about it. Cross your fingers for me!!

    I heard back from the vendor at 1 am my time. By the time I replied this morning the minute I woke up it was sold. It sold out while I was sleeping :(:roll

    Perfection. Right there. The colour is out of this world and that is my favourite cut by far.

    Bad picture, but I put it between .5ct ct diamonds in a simple white gold setting. The Spinel looks just like the vendor picture in person.
