    @jessjlstar:  Congrats on such a special time in your lives 🙂

    My husband (before we were engaged) got me a dating anniversary ring from Sam’s club for only $200!

    It is a lab created (which is the exact same thing as a mined stone chemically, just that it was made in a lab instead) 9mm blue sapphire in a white sapphire 14k white gold halo.

    I have a couple pics of it, as well as a video if you are interested:

    @jessjlstar:  Thank you 🙂

    I don’t feel like they get dirty very often at all. When I wore that ring constantly I cleaned it about once a week and it was always super shiny. I think the cleaning issue is more pertaining to larger white sapphier center stones as opposed to melee/pave.

    My engagement ring is a moissanite in a diamond halo and while the diamonds shine a little more than the sapphires, they both stay clean for equally long in my experience.

    Try looking at jewelry stores for estate rings, I have a friend who got his now fiance a gorgeous antique natural sapphire ring (it’s a group of them but not at all what you think when you hear the word “cluster,” it’s not quad-set or anything, not that there’s anything wrong with those rings) in 18k gold for about $300.

    I also saw the same blue/white sapphire ring in Sam’s and I thought it was sooooooooooo pretty! I wanted it lol. 

    I think you should go with a blue/pink sapphire unless you really like the look of white sapphire. All the white sapphire I’ve seen in shop kinda look like glass(I’m sure there are ones that look very pretty, just I’ve never seen one in person).
