Medium blue sapphire asscher
So you ladies don't think I've been holding out, lol. I finally found a true medium-dark blue sapphire in a 10mm asscher. It's dark but doesn't black out indoors, is a true blue without as much violet as I was seeing in other stones and isn't too pale in sunlight.

And it was not expensive! I'm not really able to take good pics ever, let alone right now, but hope this gives an idea:

You certainly know how to pick winners and make them absolutely special. Can't wait to see how this comes together. Ideas? Popcorn

I'm not sure yet! I was almost thinking about a diamond halo a la @ JooJooBee4, because I don't currently own a halo and the juxtaposition between the clean line sparkle of the asscher with the twinkly halo is really nice.

Another idea is the milgrain bezel...maybe even in yellow gold if I can muster the courage. Ideas are welcome. Smile It will be a while before I'm able to set it anyway so I have lots of time to change my mind, lol.

Thanks, ST! I'm feeling pretty "duh" lately and lacking creativity myself. Which is cool, I'll just enjoy all of ya'll and your projects for a while. Popcorn

RE: Medium blue sapphire asscher
I love blue and asschers are my favorite! However asscher's are cut really deep so it might be hard to set into a ring unless you don't mind it hovering 8mm + above your finger. I personally wouldn't care at all, I'm a ring girl, but I know it isn't meant for everyone. I think a thin halo would look smashing. Especially with a beautiful undergalley!!! oh the wheels are turning in my head! Beautiful sapphire and I can't wait to see what you do with it!
