I am really falling in love with colored stones. First it was Morganite but now I am reading that they get cloudy and will scratch. So now I’m looking at champagne sapphires. Does anyone know where I can buy a champagne sapphire loose stone online? I can’t seem to find exactly what I want so I think I’m going to have to find the stone and setting separately. And information would be of great help. Thank you 🙂

Jewlery TV is a reliable source for loose stones. Jtv.com. They have some amazing prices as well.
Now you have lots of places to look!

@RadiantRed: I have been absolutely coveting this beautiful unheated, unenhanced, champagne sapphire for a while now so if you get it come back and share because I will be super envious! First Row, Middle stone:
PriceScope recommended vendor, cut by Andrew Gulij, & comes with AGL certification (among most reputable lab for colored gemstones). PriceScope is an excellent resource for your search: http://www.pricescope.com/forum/colored-stones/. Good luck!

Thank you @kansas_nurse @sassy411 @reebee !! It’s so hard to decide! I went from Morganite to sapphire and now I have people making me think about Moissanite. So many choices!
I do know that I want oval in rose gold. I just love the vintage look of the oval shape. Now I just need to decide on a center stone. Here are some styles that I would die for.
@kansas_nurse I have looked at etsy and wow there are so many beautiful rings! The only concern I have is that almost none of the sellers have any type of warranty.
I’ll be getting a ring soon and I’ll be sure to post what I finally end up with!

@RadiantRed: Have you seen the peachy-pink moissanite? it’s a kind of morganite-ish color
it comes from this store but I’m having trouble acutally finding where you buy the loose stones, I’m sure someone on the bee or btd knows though.

@RadiantRed: Beware colored moissys. My understanding is that the color on colored moissys is that the color is a surface treatment. But I am team sapphire all the way!

something like this?? and many of the shops do have them, they just are not listed on the item page, you need to contact the seller i believe the main one that has what you are looking for edielprecious, when i have talked to him before has a return and warranty i believe….just send them an email, almost all of them are very friendly and willing to communicate!

@RadiantRed: I am in love L.O.V.E. with the second ring you posted. What website did it come from?
I’m actually a red head too! Us Gingers must be drawn to the semi-monochromatic-ness of the rose gold and morganite/peach sapphire with our pale skin. 🙂
Have you seen this morganite ring from Blue Nile? It’s AMAZING!

Most coloured moissy is coated yes, but it is nothing to fear. You just can’t use high heat on the stone. There are many many gemstones that you cannot use heat with. The barely pink is much more champagne coloured than peachy pink though.
I also like sapphires though, but moissy is way more sparkly. This is barely pink.
and this is peachy pink

@RadiantRed: My fiance got me my dream champagne sapphire engagment ring. I was in love with it. Then I had a horrible accident and it ended up being ran over quite a few times. The sapphire still looks amazing and although they tried to save the ring it was too delicate a band to do so. He got it on etsy and the customer service from the seller was nothing to write home about. I did find another girl on there that let me pick the setting and will be setting my stone in the ring. She is so far amazing to work with and I believe she will make a custom mount for you. I just purchased my new semi mount tonight that is not as delicate as my first and will hopefully hold up better. Here is her etsy link- Email her and Ill bet shes willing to make something custom for you based on what you want. From the experience Ive had its hard to get a jewelry store to have a mount on hand. Seems they must be ordered to thesize of your stone.
