I bought these two stones :naughty: The Sapphire is 3.64ct from Jason at Select Gem. The Peridot is 2.6ct from Doug at Bespoke Gem. I will get the sapphire next week but it will take 2-3 weeks to get the peridot.

I will post hand shots when I get them. Actively looking for a Spinel :Up_to_something:

The sapphire was a good price. Please send it to the AGL for a fast track memo when you get it. I don't think it needs a prestige report as you paid a very low price if it is like the photos. It is important to just know that it is heated, and no further treatment, and that it is natural (not synthetic). Jason should stand behind it if it comes back from the AGL anything less than advertised. If you ask, he may send it to the AGL for an additional fee.

Thanks TL.

He had it listed on another site for 1300 which is what I paid. He offered to send it to AGL for me at his cost. I will take him up on it, he will refund if not as stated.

Well, you can't do better than that. Congratulations. Please post photos when you get it.

Thanks to all for your nice comments.

Jason is sending the sapphire off to AGL for a fast track certificate for me so it will be a while before I have either one in my hands.

No, why do you ask? Jason sent it to AGL for certification to be sure it has no other treatment.

I think he's keeping it up until it's for sure sold. He has to make sure you like the stone and want to keep it first. Otherwise, he is probably leaving it up in case other prospective buyers are interested (in case you don't want the gem).

The one he had listed is marked as sold. If you look it is a different price and only has one photo where he had four. It is also a different e-mail address.

I would ask him about it, but Jason uses several outfits to sell his gems, and I'm sure he's well aware your stone is sold to you.

That's scary stuff.

Is it the same seller name?

No, it is NOT the same seller name. The name is actually listed as an individual, a female individual.

Nope. Jason is very transparent in his listing. This person I've never heard of before, and I'm a regular poster over there. The same person also has listed a huge parcel of uncut diamonds. :confused:

That's really spooky. Let this be a lesson learned - not everyone can be trusted. I guess it can happen anywhere. :(

Jason was e-mailing the administration of the site. He is to let me know when he hears.

And the "false listing" of the stone (not Jason's) is listed under loose natural diamonds, not colored stones or sapphires. I'm glad Jason is looking into it.....

Sorry, I was confused, as I thought Jason listed the same stone on multiple sites, which he often does. Well, at least you know you got the right stone, and the right Jason. ;))

Out of curiosity, I e-mailed the seller of the false listing to see what kind of response I will get :Up_to_something:
