Eurgh! That is so misleading. They portrayed it as a bright cobalt blue but the real thing looks like an inky navy blue. NOT what was ordered!! And shady vendor dealings on the refund to boot.. No thanks..
Yes, I consider this to be materially different. Did you weigh it? Maybe he's just a broker and he sent you the wrong stone... The refund situation is making me anxious for you so I wish you good luck.
From a recent Mastercut gems sale, a cushiony oval zircon. Plan to set in yellow gold. Fell in love with it in one of Rachels videos and in real life was not at all disappointed! Top photos from Mastercut.
They really need better photography. I've wanted to buy MANY of their stones but the pictures are so hard to read. Sometimes the cuts look super wonky and the girdles look all over the place but then I see photos of their stones that people have bought and they look wonderful
I've been happy with my gem purchases from them. Only returned one, and only because it was too big. They have a no questions asked return policy and are gracious- always. And great prices, especially during sales!(there's one on right now...I picked up a pad colored zircon!)
Eurgh! That is so misleading.
Just seeing this but I have to add that this is so easy to do. I have done this by accident by just increasing the "exposure" in post-processing. It's amazing how gorgeous you can make a dark sapphire look without too much trouble. I do not know this vendor but have been tempted by those glorious-looking stones.
I picked up this pendant on DiamondsbyLauren website. It was a total pleasure working with them, my first ever FLY, but I don’t see the saturation in the stone in my day to day as was on their website. It’s hard to buy jewelry online!!
Your first picture is really blurry any chance you could post another? It’s hard to compare because of the first picture.
Hi. So sorry about that, I’m a terrible photographer. here Are 2 more pics, hopefully taken better. Again, no dig at DBL, just hard to shop online ( for me, at least).
I understand. I have a DBL ring and it looks like the photograph. That one does look a quite a bit lighter. Don’t hesitate to return it if you aren’t happy!
Sorry for double posting. I forgot to mention, that the stone is more bluish and slightly more saturated in real life compared to my pictures. Colour shifters are really hard to photograph.
In this photo, tone, hue and saturation are most accurate.
Took it seconds ago in front of a window, while a small blizzard is raging.
