I like the 1st one 🙂
I like the 1st one 🙂
Both are beautiful but I like the second one better.
This might sway me if I was in your position…
What are the stats on the Gemstones themselves… are they both “Naturals” or are either of them Lab Stones / Lab Enhanced ??
For an ERing, I think I`d want something totally natural if at all possible.
both pretty… but I love the second one the most… now that is because I prefer yellow gold or rose gold….
thanks bees. Sorry for the delay. My sister got sick and things got hectic . :-/ all under control now.
Back to the topic, @This Time Round: Yes. You have a point in what would help me choose. Originally i wanted a sapphire, but getting one with such an intense color that’s more than one carat and NON heat treated and not a round is pretty hard. I get thst heat treating sapphires is just a way of making the stone prettier and more appealing but that doesn’t cut it for me. In my mind the treatment kills the purpose of getting a natural stone, i might as well get a lab sapphire in the cut I want and color I want for a fraction! So in my never ending gemstone obsession I came across… spinels! OMG they can be sooo beautiful! Natural ones can be pretty darn expensive too doending on color intensity and clarity. But they are normally not treated, are still fairly hard and the colors can be naturally pretty much like glow in the dark! Lol
So I started searching and this are the 4 that my guy likes. Our favorite is the one on top on the left side. It’s a 3.51 carats and very rich color, VVS1 the one on the right is an oval. Although we are not too crazy about ovals I love the color of this stone. It has a very attractive price and it is VS1 and 5.4 carats. Spinels, as sapphires tend to be smaller compared to a diamond of the same weight for some reason. Two bottom ones are still pretty and they are 4.5 and 3.60.
We’ll have the ring custom made with the stones we choose. Now SO wants to ask for side by side pics of all four stones in different lighting conditions and in a hand by the ring finger so we can get a better idea of the stones.
Hopefully we will love one (I think it will be the first in the pic) and he can proceed to buy and talk to the jeweler!
