I don’t have one YET, but have decided to get one of the Kashmir blues for my future ering as a stand-in and then switch it for an Amora gem.  I’ve had plenty of time to research this, and after looking at reviews and threads, it looks like they’re amazing stones you can’t go wrong with.  Smile  Just out of curiosity, which color are you considering?

Oooo – those sound pretty!  Asschers are so sophisticated, and cushions have the lovely mix of sparkle + square shape.  I think I want the round diamond cut.  A round diamond cut emerald was a contender, too, for a while.  One thing about the dark ceylon blues: they were discontinued, I believe, so whatever they have in stock on their website may be all you can get.

btw, what part of NZ are you from (have I asked you this before)? I spent this fall living in the Dunedin area

I really want the Asscher blue sapphire – so gorgeous! I have it pinned on Pinterest and I’m in love with it. I hope someone who has one will pop in and share!

I ordered the Avarra concave cut pink sapphire and it was frikkin awesome. I sent it back because i didn’t really have a project for it but I plan to own one someday when i think of what to do with it. It was a gorgeous, gorgeous stone. Absolutely beautiful faceting.

I haven’t but I have one of their rubies on my wishlist… since I will probably never be able to afford, or find, a top-color natural ruby.

@Miss Circe:  Aw, cool!  Loved the South Island.  Yup, that was me.  

@moonadea:  glad to hear your experience w/it as well.  btw, of my favorite rings on the bee, yours is one of the top 5.  Your ring helped me decide I wanted a plain shank halo.

SO ordered one and showed it to me today!  Kashmir blue 6.5mm diamond cut.  I don’t have a picture, but it’s BEAUTIFUL!  Far prettier than any sapphire I’ve ever seen in real life.  It doesn’t black out at all!  It goes from royal blue to sort of a blue jay blue, depending on the lighting.  I’m so excited about it!

@MissPine:  I will!  Originally I thought the sapphire would be a temp stone until Amora gem comes out, but now that I’ve seen it, I might stick with the sapphire.  It’s loose right now, but I’m so excited to see it in a ring!  Eeeeek!
