I am absolutely thrilled that my now husband chose a deep, dark blue sapphire for my ring. It also doesn’t hurt that he totally took all those pictures I snuck under his nose seriously, and chose an antique style setting. I didn’t get my ‘engagement ring’ until the day before our wedding, since I proposed to him, so even though we just got married I am totally still showing this thing off!

I love how ‘old’ it looks! Do you have any pics of it on your hand?
Did the band come with it?
Sooooo beautiful! Congrats, lucky lady! 🙂

thank you ladies!! i’m getting a lot more love on here than in real life. seems like people’s brains trip over themselves when they see a non-diamond engagement ring. i love how the women at my work all came in and grabbed my hand today only to have this look of deep concentration on their face. the most common response: “that’s so…interesting.” i guess they prefer their cloudy, yellowed diamonds to my clear sapphire. oh well.
the band did come with the ring, the cut work matches on both. i will post a pic with it on my finger.

I think it’s absolutely gorgeous!! I love the antique detailing to it! and ain’t nothing wrong with a sapphire as an e-ring…I had originally thought I want one with a combo of sapphires and diamonds…I didn’t get that, but still I don’t think anyone should judge at all!

Your ring is beautiful!! And your weding band is gorgeous too. I love non-diamond e-rings. My FI gave me a sapphire e-ring. The people that know me say it suits me, but the ones that don’t seem concerned that I’m being cheated out of a diamond. I love that it’s just a little bit different.

I feel like we are kindred spirits. Both from Harrisburg, both proposed to our men, both got sapphire e-rings, and both love antique-style settings. Yours is GORGEOUS! I totally feel ya on the crystal clear sapphire>yellowed diamond front.
