Hi there! My boyfriend and I are looking to get engaged and I’ve always wanted a blue sapphire ring. Gemvara.com is having a 25% off sale right now and I’ve found a few rings on their site that I really like but I’m worried about the quality of blue sapphire. Their stock images aren’t great, but I don’t want to hold that against them. I can’t seem to find any review photos where I can get a good look at one! Gemvara provides information about the sapphire that would be set in the ring and they all say they’re AAA, lab-created sapphires (done research on lab-created and I’m cool with that; drops the price significantly).
Does anyone have a blue sapphire ring from Gemvara that they could post photos of for me? Or have you purchased jewelry from Gemvara and want to share your experience? All help is welcome! Thanks in advance!!

Just to show you what else is out there, I found what looks like a pretty close duplicate ( except for the claws on main stone) to Gemvara’s Aria in excess of $1000.00 less than Gemvara’s sale price, with the option of making an offer! The diamonds are also GIA graded.
I don’t know anything about Gemvara but from what I have seen I do think that they are a tad over priced. There may be better deals out there but go with what makes your heart sing.

Well if your not set on that ring there are many options and since you said you’re open to lab sapphires, I recommend geolite. They do lab sapphires and have great customer service although I haven’t purchased anything from them (yet lol) but I routinely peruse their site and have chatted about specific stones in their inventory. I would totally purchase a loose stone and have a setting made or find a semi-mount that fits the stone size your looking for and go from there.
Happy shopping! 🙂

FH got my sapphire from gemsny.com. He also paid a second appraiser to view the stone in person to verify its authenticity (it’s certified and everything but you can never be too careful).
Here is its listing
And here’s the finished product
Very faceted and incredibly beautiful.
FH had the stone shipped to us then had a custom setting made here in Chicago. When all was said and done the ring appraised for $1500 more than what he paid!!!
FH worked with Ernie at gemsny.com and had a wonderful experience. Feel free to DM me if you need more info!

I don’t have a sapphire ring, but I do have a Gemvara engagement ring. My ring has an onyx and is in a sterling silver setting. Realistically speaking the ring was probably overpriced based on the materials in it. But, and this is a huge but, I couldn’t find anything anywhere else that came close to the look. I would have to go custom to get something I liked this much and custom wasn’t something I was willing to deal with. I think they have some beautifully creative designs and the fact that you can choose every stone and metal used was worth the increase in the price.
As for quality of the ring, I think mine has held up marvelously. I’ve had my ring for a bit over 2 years and there have been no issues. The center stone is still firmly in place. There are some scratches along the metal, but that’s to be expected in a ring that gets daily wear. The side stones (bezel set) are still in place and just as sparkly as before. And the onyx center only has a couple scratches (for a Mohs 7 stone, that’s pretty good). The ring itself has some weight, it’s not super dainty, but it’s not designed to be that way. So with a ring designed to be more dainty, your mileage may vary.
Overall I had a great experience and the customer service was wonderful. If you don’t mind putting in the extra money to get the design without having the bother of going custom it’s definitely worth it.

My first ring was from Gemvara! They were great. But I then upgraded to a new ring with David Klass
