Recently I've become curious about sapphires so I started reading a bit and looking at differnet stones. I tried on this ring over the weekend... it was so beautiful! The photo doesn't do justice to the rich blue, violet colour of the stone. I also tried on a cushion cut center with diamond half moon sides, unfortunately the web site doesn't have a photo. Anyhow, I left drooling and dreaming of sapphires! http://www.turgeonraine.com/detail.asp?pid=408 I'm curious to see the sapphire jewelry that you have or want to have. Please post pics here! Thanks!
