Windborn :  Your set is so beautiful and your sapphire is just the perfect blue 🤗

I’d like to have a blue one too, but for now I’m happy with my pink sapphire.

I like deep blue sapphires, as the two sidestones on my ring are sapphires. Another question to consider is whether you want natural sapphires or are okay with heat-treated ones. Most sapphires on the market are heat treated (or have undergone some other treatment, some more invasive than others) and typically less expensive, as the treatment is a way to deepen the color of the sapphire to the rich blue most people associate with sapphires. However, this treatment process typically destroys the rutile silks which are seen in most natural sapphires to varying degrees. Star sapphires are examples of sapphires which have such extreme rutile silk patterns that they literally reflect a star pattern of light when they are polished into a dome shape. Others may be more subtle, and a heat treated sapphire will be clear without any reflections of the rutile silks. 

Here is a good basic guide on sapphire quality: https://www.gia.edu/sapphire-quality-factor

The sidestone sapphires on my ring are natural sapphires, and they react differently to different lights than a perfectly clear stone due to the rutile silks in them. They aren’t quite as clear, but have a sort of… pearlescent sheen. In mine it seems to be more of a surface sheen in low lighting and an internal glow in brighter lights. It’s hard to get a picture of the sheen in low lighting, but here is a picture where you can see the glow reflected by the silks.

I  initially wanted a peach but fell in love with this one. The color looks different in every lighting and goes from pure blue to green and grey hues.

I love your ring! I would get the same color as yours. Very pretty! (I’m talking to the original person who posted this thread. Lol)
