Sorry to post another white sapphire question but don’t know who else it ask.
Could any of you ladies who have a white sapphire e-ring (especially a created/synthetic one) tell me how it has held up so far? The reason I’m asking is that because I love my ring so much, I’m thinking of changing the setting but don’t want to spend the money if others have found that the stone somehow doesn’t perform or hold up well over time. I think I have this paranoia that somehow it will lose it’s beauty over time because it is synthetic.
Also, do any of you know much about lab created sapphires? I did take my ring to a really great jeweler I know the other day and he told me that a lab/synthetic sapphire is basically the same as a natural (of course there are differences but pretty much the same composition) but the stone I have isn’t cut well (b/c it would cost more to cut the stone in the way it should be cut than it’s worth). My ring is currently in a 10k setting and nice but I really want a 14k in a 6 prong after looking at so many rings here because I’m worried the stone could be knocked out and I think it will look much nicer. My jeweler (as most others) works with such high quality stones that I’m sure he wonders why I would want to reset such a cheap stone but I love it.
Also, if any of you have white sapphire bands, could you tell me where you found yours? I’ve done searches online but really haven’t found many white sapphire jewelry (except natural sapphire company and right now, can’t afford what they have – although their jewelry is gorgeous!).
Thanks and sorry for posting another white sapphire post! Promise this is my last!
