Since purple is my favourite colour, I decided that my collection would not be complete without this purple sapphire ring:

It's lovely and a keeper, but I have to say it does look exactly like (expensive) amethyst!

It's lovely and a good gold weight. Purple is my favorite colour sapphire. Enjoy wearing it, Miss Magpie :).

I agree with you MissM, I've had several pieces from them and I can't distinguish it from good quality amethyst either. I sent mine back because of windowing in the stones, but haven't ruled out trying another piece. Your ring looks lovely by the way.

Update: it doesn't look like amethyst in daylight.

And yes, the stones DO have quite a bit of windowing, which is not good, but I can live with it in small stones (though not large ones).
