holy cows. i was totally blown away when i saw my saharas from bella. i ordered on the 28th, and they were delivered on the 30th. now THAT'S great service!
anyway...pictures. i compared them to my 8mm LY OEC and 8m LY ACC. from left to right: 7mm sahara, 8mm OEC, 7.5mm sahara, 8mm ACC:
They don't look very tinted at all. Just slightly warm to my eyes.
Face down, they showed more color
At an angle they have some color as well
This shot was taken with my hand next to a window on a sunny day.
A couple mins later, a few clouds passed by.
Close up; clouds went away. Look, I caught some arrows!
And I caught more arrows here!
i love the stones. many thanks to bella for having such lovelies available! 7mm is not at all too big. in fact, 7.5mm is not all that big, either!
next thought...what kinda semi-mount do i want for these lovelies?? i think i'd like the 7mm to be something i can wear everyday to work and swap out with my princess tulip when the mood strikes...something low-set would be ideal. for the 7.5mm...i was thinking a 2mm wide semi-mount with half eternity pave band, but i'm afraid the color difference between the stones on the band and the sahara would be too much. must think some more....
