This weekend I’m going to either set my 8mm blue cushion sapphire or buy an eternity band w/ sapphires in it – I haven’t decided yet.


If I do set my sapphire, I want diamond traps on the sides, however I’m afraid it may be out of my price range.


What other stones would look nice witha sapphire? I have a pic on here somehwhere, but I can’t find it – but I have psoted it on the boar before – if you are motivated enough you can take a peek at it. If not ,just your opinion – what color ,besides white, would look good?


Thanks! - feel free to psot examples :)

How dark is your sapphire? What about light purple?

Depending on your preferences either pink or purple or peridot green could look nice. But if you really want that blue/white look why don''t you use colorless beryls or zircons instead of diamonds?

I agree with Adam, do you want me to photoshop it, how fat you see your traps should be? Also do you mind yellow gold?

Two half moons or pears. I''ve been drooling over the three stone combos by Leon Mage... and those are the two that look the most amazing, IMO with cushion as beautiful as yours.

I would do another shade of blue... more sapphires!! Lighter or darker depending on the color of your center stone.

I made your stone into side trillions settings for now, one Adam''s color, one Cehra''s.
If i find nice traps for your sapphire''s beautiful shape i''ll re-make them.

I''d save until I could get the side traps or either a split shank. Seriously, sapphires need white diamond accents, IMO...nothing is more beautiful than that!

I like the idea of pale pink or pale yellow sapphires. if they are cut well and clear they could really sparkle. What about tiny opals? I guess that it would be hard to find them in that shape though.

damn, you are SO talented!!!!! I like the double blue but only because the yellow and blue were my school colors and it makes me think "go chargers!" hehe They''re both really nice - it''s actually nice to see something other than diamonds!

I love the one with the baby blue sides!! It''s a stunning mockup!

I am actually thinking about doing two colorless sapphires with my Montana blue sapphire. It would be a true sapphire ring! Perhaps the same would work with your lovely cushion...
