by StephanieLynn » Sep 4, 2019 Took a few rings to my trusted gemologist including the "unheated Ceylon sapphire" I recently bought off LT. Now I completely disregarded they "unheated Ceylon" part because that's a pretty large claim at the price I paid. I told myself I would be happy as long as it was a natural sapphire. Well it isn't a sapphire at all, it's spinel, it is a natural spinel thankfully. Here is the question though, isn't it kind of a problem that this was sold as a sapphire without the seller checking beforehand? Or is it on me because I took a chance at buying the ring without any documentation to support what it was? I feel a certain way about this only because anytime I sell something I always have it completely checked out by my gemologist so I know exactly what I'm selling, that is the responsible thing to do IMO.
