Settle a dispute for us please. What color would you call this sapphire? I say indigo, she says London blue. London blue is topaz or am I crazy? Lol. Pictures taken outside on cloudy day. 20200727_134153~2.jpg 20200727_134837.jpg

My first impression when I saw the sapphire was royal blue! But pictures can disguise the true color depending on what type of lighting environment it was taken in. So I agree with @marymm! Med-dark sapphire, royal blue. I’ve always associated London blue color stones for topazes....

I would call it Blue, or medium-to-dark blue, or royal blue.

On my monitor, based on the photos posted above, I don't see indigo (not dark enough) and I don't see London Blue (not inky enough).
Thank you both for humoring our little discussion. I guess we both lost. Lol

100% agree with this. It's definitely not London Blue as it's missing the inkiness, and not indigo either as indigo is more purple.

I would have thought it's closer to royal blue too.

I don't even know what is considered indigo, royal, etc.:errrr: I just go by light, medium or dark and the variations in between, plus any sort of modifiers if it has any, and also degree of saturation.

Medium dark blue or Royal blue to my untrained eyes.
