    Few months ago I posted about a 4.55 carat unheated round blue sapphire from Burma in the thread linked below:
    https://www.pricescope.com/communit...lue-sapphire-agl-prestige-report-help.203697/

    The round shape makes the sapphire brilliant, but limits the setting choices. I already have several micro pave color stone rings, a smaller blue sapphire in a Princess Diana type cluster setting and also 3-stone rings. After months of looking for a unique setting online and in local stores, I finally decided to order a platinum hand made, Sebastien Barier octagon Art Deco inspired pierced setting, through 66 Mint. I would like to thank 'asscher girl' for introducing me to Sebastien Barier and 66 Mint. I would not have known about the designer, nor the local dealer, if I have not read her posts about her gorgeous, and now famous, Sebasatien Barier ring. After a long wait of around 2 months, I finally received the ring just before Christmas. I took pictures with both a point and shoot Canon and my iPhone5. I have trouble capturing the true color of the sapphire. The iPhone captures the color better, but cannot get sharp closeups without a macro function. Here are pictures taken inside and outside, in the sun and in the shade. The color shows best in the sun.

    Oh my word, that is incredible :love: :love: :love:
    Your sapphire is incredible- just amazing and gorgeous- you are so fortunate to have found such a jewel- the blue, and all the vivid richness and magnificence- stunning.

    Aannnd- your ring!it Beyond beautiful, it is my favorite. We are gonna be ring twins! I had a diamond (smaller than your sapphire) set in the same setting, getting it any day... mine took even longer than 2 months, lol. Needless to say, I think you couldn't have chosen a lovelier mount for your jewel- are you happy with it? I think it is gorgeous. Looks great on your hand. That blue just GLOWS there- what a knockout- a true heirloom piece.

    The sapphire necklace and earrings- all together it is fit for royalty. Stunning. Thank you so much for sharing and may you enjoy those pieces in good health.
