There are trade members that are in the Colored Gems forum on Pricescope, but they can’t advertise their wares or comment on other’s stones (just like on Rocky Talk). You can get a stone custom cut, although I’m not sure at the OP’s price-point. I poked around all the precision cutters web/etsy/ebay stores that I know to get the list I posted, but I’m sure there are others out there that I missed. I looked into getting some small pears custom cut and the cost/carat was the same as if they were twice the size.

Ya… That is why I was happy to find what I wanted pre-cut. But, getting something cut I feel would be ultra cool to do. I hope to do it one day.

Thanks a lot of all bees helping!!!!!
1 more question please. What is a parcel mean? I seen many sapphire sold in parcel/lot, consisting many many sapphire but with very low price.
Example: 10pcs of blue sapphire with 10ctw, cost only 80usd. On the other hand, they also sell 1ct sapphire cost 200usd.
Are the parcel/lot one fake? Or they just have very bad cutting etc? From the pic they are not that bad lol.

You should check out GemsByStudio1040 on Etsy – they have the most amazing peachy pink sapphires, and a good price range! They also offer 3rd party certification for an extra fee. I bought my little sapphire from them and it is gorgeous!! Absolutely recommended 🙂 And one more thing.. They also have another shop where they sell jewelry pieces, you can check that out as well if you want an entire piece and not just the stone.

A parcel is just a way of saying more than two or a group. If the are $10, then the cut will be awful.

To be honest if it’s too good to be true it is. Sapphires are expensive stones if you want a good quality stone. Anything dirt cheap will suck.
Like said above, a parcel is a group of stones. They are all probably super small and poorly cut to be that cheap.
