I have a customer (and friend) looking for a nice sapphire to
celebrate his and his wife’s 25th anniversary. It will be set between
2 5mm rd brilliant diamonds, so I am thinking at least a 6x8mm oval.
They would like a darker rather than lighter blue stone.
I work in a pawn shop; we see a lot of diamonds, but not many nicer,
larger colored stones. My usual source for colored stones is Darling
Imports in Atlanta, but I think I could perhaps get more for my (his)
$$, as well as patronizing my compatriots, here in Orchidland.
Most likely we are looking for something that costs under $1000
(WS). It certainly does not need to be investment quality, but nice
color and cut would be a plus. I recently had to set some large oval
citrines with massive girdles and enormously bulging pavilions and
don’t want to repeat that process!!
