I’ve seen sapphires in oval, princess, square, asscher, emerald, round and cushion. So I guess pretty much the same as a diamond. It is really hard to find sapphires as they are really rare. Not every jeweler will ever work with a sapphire in their life time. To me when you want gemstone jewelry, out source the loose stones yourself. It’s educational, stressful, frustrating, draining, constant migraines but all worth it. hahaha

yeah I spent a long time looking for a pink sapphire I liked but it’s even harder with colors. Plus so many are heat treated!

Oh I know. It just depends on you if you want an untreated or a heat treatment (which is the only one that is acceptable). The value still goes up with the heat treatment, not as much as the no treatment, of course. So far, the pink sapphires in my collection makes me smile. They are all the shade that I want and just so beautiful. You’re right, the colored are a little bit harder because of the different shades that there are to choose from.

The way I see it, people might just be curious about the carats so they can know how it translates into size, much like here on WB. I asked one of my friends how many carats her stone is for that exact reason; I really couldn’t care less how much her fiance paid for it. The price of a certain carat varies so widely that I would never assume that’s what someone wants to know. Plus, if it is a setting from somewhere like Jared, or from a certain designer, its pretty easy to figure out the price. Rudeness is subjective, and I think a lot of people forget that.
Also, how much your house sold for is public information. 🙂

I have the same problem on my iPad and ONLY on Wedding Bee. It is completely frustrating! It will take one word and break it into two different words! Total nonsense and I have to keep going back and typing again and again what I meant to say! I don’t understand it because it honestly does not happen to me anywhere else when I am typing on my iPad or iPhone.

good point. for the record, I wouldn’t actually be offended if anybody asked me what carat size my diamond is. it just feels like something I’m not supposed to ask others.
I’m actually pretty clueless when it comes to wedding related etiquette! I’ve learned quite a lot since I’ve joined the bee.
