by peakysapphire » Dec 1, 2018 I don't know much about gemstones so please forgive me, what I've learned is mostly from here. I'm searching for a blue/green sapphire for my e-ring and originally wanted a Montana sapphire but have heard that: They can be gray in some lighting and Their price has gone way up in recent years I'm thinking I want a pear-shaped sapphire and definitely want one that is a brilliant teal (mostly blue, slightly green) with great clarity. Budget for the stone is $6k and I want something 2.5+ carats (the one I picked out in the jewelry store was over 4 carats). Anybody have suggestions for where to look/people to work with or just advice in general? Thanks so much!
