Thanks you so much for all the effort you put into finding my sapphire ring. It's just what I had in mind. You have been wonderful to work with and I hope
to again when I get earrings. I never bought any jewelry on the internet but you made the experience so easy. I would feel comfortable telling my friends.
Thanks again and Happy New Year!

0.90 ctw Ceylon Sapphire and Diamond Ring in 14k yellow gold
many rings with sapphires close to 1 carat and slightly smaller. We also have a
range of shapes and shades of blue. Our most petite design,
GR-5760, features an east west set
radiant cut Ceylon sapphire in a light to medium cornflower blue hue. The east
west setting creates more of a band style ring so this one is great for stacking
as well. The baguette diamonds on each side of the sapphire complement the
radiant faceting as well. This ring is available in either white or yellow gold.
We also have a three stone, past present future, design,
with an oval cut rich blue sapphire flanked by a round diamond or white sapphire
on each side. We love this particular setting because we've given it a vintage
feel with the engraving on three sides of the band that extends to the back of
the ring. For those looking for a more uncommon shape, our
features pear shape white sapphires on either side of a round light blue
sapphire. This design also has prominent engraving on the shank. Our most
classic style is of course the solitaire ring,
GR-5944. This elegant
design has beautiful lively round sapphire just over 1 carat in size. If you
want a simple design with a touch of diamonds, we would recommend our
GR-5457 which have an
oval sapphire center and a trio of diamonds on each side. The band is done with
a high polished finish. The contrast between the sapphire and diamonds is eye
catching and the ring will bring many compliments! We do have wedding band
style rings with channel set sapphires done in shades of blue sapphire,
GR-5229, or matched
cornflower blue sapphires in an eternity style,
GR-5575. Sapphires are the traditional gift for the fifth
and forty-fifth wedding anniversaries and the
birthstone for SeptemberEnhancements: Although cutting
most basic enhancement method necessary to display the beauty of a gemstone,
there are many methods by which man has demonstrated his ability to
draw maximum color, luster, clarity and brilliance from nature's
treasures. With a basic understanding of these enhancement techniques,
one can better appreciate the beauty, durability and value of the gemstone
jewelry. Most sapphires are treated with heat after being mined.
Heat treatment of sapphires is a permanent, industry accepted treatment
requiring no additional care over that of unheated sapphires. Other
treatments are used to enhance the color of sapphires which are not
industry accepted, may not be permanent, and therefore not sold by
MyJewelrySource.com. Approximately, 99% of sapphires used in jewelry
are heated, leaving 1% which are unheated and
considered very rare. You should assume that the sapphires
sold at MyJewelrySource are heated unless stated otherwise.
Buying a Sapphire: Overall, sapphires
can be considered the ideal colored gemstone. Besides the amazing
selection of colors, sapphires are highly durable with a rating of 9 on the Mohs scale of
in sizes of more than 1 carat are considered to be important. Minor
inclusions are generally acceptable although certainly not as many as
with ruby or emerald.
Nearly all of the sapphires at MyJewelrySource.com are eye clean and
most important, all are very pleasing to the eye. We offer a wide range
of colors from a traditional Ceylon blue,
to rich lustrous royal blue, to many styles with bubble gum and baby pink,
Care of Sapphires: Since sapphires are
and durable, they can withstand most cleaning methods. While steaming
and ultrasonic cleaning will not damage the gemstone, these methods are
not recommended by MJS as they may loosen the setting, and
subsequently, stones may fall out. Your jewelry may be cleaned with a soft-bristled brush or a cloth with
plain or soapy water. Sapphires must not be put in boiling hot water.
Avoid exposure to hairspray, perfume and chlorine, which can dull
