just wondering...

'Enhanced' in the case of the topaz probably means that the stone is a natural topaz but that the color is caused by a treatment applied after the stone was mined. This usually involves a clear stone with a red coating on the back.


'Created' means that the sapphires were grown in a laboratory instead of in the earth.


Neither of these is an expensive component by itself but this doesn't mean that your ring was a ripoff. There are quite a few things that will make a finished ring valulable beyond the value of the gemstones. Do you love it?
