I swear, I only ever find these things when they're about to end.

I want this! But I don't quite want it $18 worth, and the cheapest shipping offered is $8, and that's assuming I could win it with the minium bid. If I weren't a little strapped for cash coming up on the end of the month and next month's rent I might be wild and crazy and do it, but I just can'te quite justify it.

The item in question: http://cgi.ebay.com/ELEGANT-PADPARADSCHA-ORANGE-NATURAL-SAPPHIRE-CEYLON-NR_W0QQitemZ350025913557QQihZ022QQcategoryZ110883QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1713.m153.l1262

If that thing is anything at all like the photos, it's worth FAR more than the starting bid, but... *sighs* Ah well. Were it ending in a couple of days I'd try and cut a deal with somebody, but I don't think anybody will see it in time.

Just my luck!

Edit: ooooo, this one is nice too! Though not quite as nice, it's not as clear. But the color is excellent. http://cgi.ebay.com/5X4-MM-PADPARADSCHA-SAPPHIRE-LOOSE-GEMSTONES-NATURAL_W0QQitemZ230223744602QQihZ013QQcategoryZ110883QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
