Once, I visited a gem fair where I fell in love with a ring made with a sugar loaf tsavorite cabochon. I think of it every now and then. Today I was offered this lovely tsavorite ring. Alas, it is a oval cab, not a sugar loaf. What do you all think? It’s $1500.

I know the darker green isn’t popular here but doesn’t it look just like imperial jade?

I think it's lovely!

Metal type and ctw diamonds?
Ct of the cab and measurements?
Underside is open?
No black marks or distracting inclusions?
How translucent is it?

18 ct white gold, translucent... I didn’t ask about the ct weight. I think it’s very pretty but I I spent too much this month already, so I’m going to pass on it. I still have my heart set on having a sugar loaf cab of some kind.

Aw nuts. Was hoping there'd be a new shiny with hand pics to see here :D But good for you for fighting the temptation! Your sugar loaf cab is out there waiting for you!

Have you looked at sky gems? They have some lovely sugarloaf sapphires right now

Edit. Ugh nevermind. Some of them look nice, but then up close not as much:(

Thanks for looking for me! I think sapphires will be out of budget. But I think tourmalines and garnets will be fine. I’m aiming for a nice clean rubellite now as a realistic target. But if I see the right tsav, I’ll go for it.

Little bit of an update. I found a sugar loaf tsavorite! Pretty included but I really like the color and the unexpected shape (a trillion sugarloaf!). It’s got flea bites on the bottom but I think they can be covered by the right setting. Not very big either at 7.4 x 7.2 and just under 2 cts but I think it will be good enough for me.

It’s now on the way to Daniel M who has agreed to make the ring for me!
