Hi everyone I’m new to here, so please forgive my post if it’s silly. I recenently became the over of a ring and have not had a chance to get it looked at professionally donjysy wondering if anyone can help me out. Do these stones look like natural or man madgod sapphires? Thank you to anyone who can help

lol at your autocorrect errors. How did “man made” ever become “man madgod?”
That being said, it’s really hard to tell from your photos due to the flash but I would guess man made. Natural sapphires often have internal flaws so they aren’t so clear and don’t glitter the same way as man made.

actually, there are PLENTY of mined sapphires that are eye clean (these are the ones that people usually pick out for their engagement rings….). They’re not internally flawless, but you can’t see the inclusions without a loupe.
Bee, there’s only one way to find out – have a jeweler look at it with a loupe. There are a few different methods of growing sapphires in a lab, but two things jewelers look for are growth bubbles or growth rings. But you won’t be able to find out by just looking at it in daylight or posting pics here.
Fwiw, I have an eye clean, very sparkly Ceylon sapphire as my ering.

I say Man made- purely because color matching that many sapphires would be very, very tricky- and I don’t see variation in color like I would expect if it were natural.
Hope I am wrong 🙂

Thanks so much for your help everyone, I don’t really mind if it is man made as they are very pretty coloured ones. I know one lady who has man made sapphires in her engagement ring, and not to be mean, but they look awful, so obvious and plasticy looking. I’ll get it looked at this week. Thank you again 😘😘
