So a purple stone is highly desired by the lady to be....it seems like sapphire is a very durable stone...

I really want to get a beautiful stone and don't mind spending a little extra since it isn't a diamond ...

Are these values about what these are worth?

https://www.gemsny.com/sapphires/1.4...g&r=1147861267

Both have solid return policies so I guess we could go for it and if we aren't happy...send it back.

Thoughts? Thank you !

Sorry to not be any help - I personally have a green sapphire ring and have no idea of it's value. Have you tried researching it?

This one - Untreated 1.43 cts. PURPLE Sapphire Round (Item# PUSU82012GRD) - at https://www.gemsny.com/sapphires/1.4...g&r=1147861267

I think that's a good price for that size and medium colour grade of the violet stones. It has good clarity and a true, untreated violet colour, nice faceting. I think it has more pop! to it than the darker purple or lighter violet colour grades shown. Very nice stone.

The more I stare at that one the table facet doesn't seem to be proportional / symmetrical. Should it be for that price?

It is. It's an oblong octogon, and the way the stone is sitting, it's resting at an odd angle so it doesn't appear symmetrical.

I am a precious stone ignoramus. But both of those stones are beautiful.

Either would make lovely rings.

So on this one it was pointed out to me that there is a lot of black when you look directly into the stone...extinction. Then the back of the stone ....the pavilion has no pavilion mains.

The first one does seem dark in areas. I did spot some natural inclusions. I personally would prefer the color be a little deeper, but that's personal preference. I'd have to see it in person because it can be hard to tell online.


I love sapphires, though. I once sold a bracelet that was made from a rainbow of natural sapphires and it was gorgeous.
