There is a vast amount of knowledge and Bee’s who know much more than I do. So, I’d like to ask for some help with my right hand ring.
At first I was on the fence about my right hand ring. I didn’t care what it was made of or even if it was equally as big as my engagement ring or if it was ‘cocktail’ looking. I didn’t have a firm idea on color because I love all stones and colors. I was even open to custom design but not now. I’d like my ring to have:
Style: 3 stones or 5 stones I’m also open to an eternity band. 3 or 5 stone rings are my first choice though. I’m also open to styles that look like branches or cable styles.
Stone shape: I really love princess cut, emerald cut, oval or cushion cut. I’ve also open to marquis cut stones. Side note: My engagement ring is cushion cut but its been difficult to find a band with small cushion cut stones.
Stone color: White or yellow sapphires for my stone and I’m open to lab created stones.
Metal: I’d like the band to be in white 10 kt or 14 kt gold. If theres a ring out there thats that great I would consider sterling but I’d prefer gold. I’m open to chain stores at this point.
Price: I’m not as open as I was because I’m thinking about ordering a different wedding dress. I’d like to stick between $1.00 – $300.00.
Where to find: I’m open to places like etsy, HSN or QVC if they have what I want.
Here’s images of rings that have really grown on me located at Zales:
Any help or images are helpful. Thank you!

Have you checked out Gemvara’s website? Lots of different customization options to check out! In my few minutes of playing around, it seems some of their options may be slightly out of your desired price range. But I’d definitely encourage you to look; you might find something else you like (plus it’s just fun to play on their website :-))!
Channel set princess cut white and yellow sapphires (in sterling is still $705): http://www.gemvara.com/jewelry/madison-band/sterling-silver-ring-with-white-sapphire-&-yellow-sapphire/x6b01
Five stone princess cut, only available with yellow sapphires: http://www.gemvara.com/jewelry/five-stone-artisan-band-(2.5mm-gems)/princess-yellow-sapphire-sterling-silver-ring-with-yellow-sapphire/l2hw9
Oval five stone, white and yellow sapphires: http://www.gemvara.com/jewelry/five-stone-gala-band-(5mm-gems)/oval-white-sapphire-sterling-silver-ring-with-yellow-sapphire-&-white-sapphire/dc98w
Like I said, I know some of these are outside your budget, but I only looked for a few minutes. I haven’t ordered from them myself but have heard nothing but good things about the quality.
I’d also encourage you to check out ShaneCo. You can select a sapphire as a center stone in one of their engagement rings. They also have fashion rings that can be customized, and some preset. You can also check their wedding bands; they have lots with sapphires that might be the five stone or eternity style you like. Finally, if you’re near one of their physical stores, they may be able to customize something for you there.
Hope this helps a bit!
