NSF will send you the stone to inspect before setting. Krikawa also has a pretty good sourcing system for stones and they will send stones for inspection as well.

@birchwood29:  thanks! I love it. It’s a purple sapphire, and the color changes based on the type of light it’s in (although it’s not technically a color-change sapphire). The setting isn’t one of their options. There was a pre-made ring in yellow gold and with a blue sapphire that I liked. We asked if they could cast it in platinum for us. They did, and I think my version is much lovelier than the original! (of course I’m entirely biased!) I think the original has been recently purchased, but there’s a similar ring with an oval center stone (the profile is a little different, though).

NSF was very easy to work with, and the ring came very quickly–I think it took less than 2 weeks to arrive after we approved of the design. And the ring appraised at about 1.5x what we paid for it, so we were pleased!

@pineapplez17:  SOOOOOO GORGEOUS! 


I’m presently jonesing out for a RHR exactly like this! I am so in love with that color sapphire right now! It reminds me of the color of my husbands eyes. Your ring is beautiful! 🙂 

(Edited to add: yes, my husbands eyes are sooo blue, with the faintest purple cast, they’re amazing!)

@dewingedpixie:  I checked out Larry Woods just recently because of your ring, and I have to say I was pretty blown away. I’m seriously dying to buy one of his gemstones, the Songea sapphires are freaking amazing.

@pineapplez17:  So pretty!!

@birchwood29:  My ex husband ordered my engagement ring from TNSC.  It is a beautiful Ceylon sapphire and I absolutely love it, even today, almost 4 years after our divorce.  Even though I don’t wear it anymore, I can’t bear the thought of selling it or pawning it.  So it sits in my jewelry box.

It looks pretty much like this one:

My ex said the company was easy to work with and I even signed for the ring but had no clue because the packaging didn’t clue me in.  I highly recommend TNSC.

@starla:  The good news is has pretty good prices too. I love his cuts. He’s won awards from AGTA.

Know that tanzanian sapphires can be earthy with some brown tones. They also photograph horribly. This is why Krikawa was unaware my stone was a color changer too. In florescent lighting my stone is an orchidy purple that flashes cherry and champagne tones. Some people dont care for brown flashes but I had been partial to brown diamonds as well.  The tanzanian stones are finally getting some recognition of their own right though their purples and color shifters are becoming known. They also have really good pads. Because these stones are just starting to get their own recognition rather than being compared to ceylon/kashir stonesit makes them good investment stones. The color change stones that occur in the songea and umba region have really only been found there. The value comes not in their clarity or even how attractive the tones are but more in how complete they change. I’m pretty lucky because my stone has really attractive color changes and is pretty clean clarity wise.

@birchwood29:  You can get the stone you’re looking at from the NSC sent to you to observe it for like a 7 or 10 day period. Then you can either send it back, or pay for it. You can contact them and they’ll give you information about it.

@birchwood29:  My H got my ring from TNSC in NYC though. He had a great experience and I love my ring! It’s a violet sapphire.

Great thread!! Laughing  I love seeing other NSC rings. Mine is a 1.53ct Ceylon sapphire in a platinum Art Deco bezel setting with Canadian diamonds… I designed it, so it’s exactly what I wanted! Love it so much, and I had a great experience working with NSC throughout the design process.
