It’s not my engagement ring, but I have a lapis ring that is like this. I thought I had pictures of it, but I can’t find them on my computer. =(

EDIT TO ADD: Oh! Wait! I think I have an amber ring (also a RHR) that fits this description, too.

pmaliz:  Almost any jewelry store should have or be able to get you a cabochon. Depending on the setting they can be charmingly old-fashioned, or ultra modern looking. What stone are you thinking of? Garnets make beautiful cabs. I’m sure you’ll find something perfect for your engagement ring.

majorairhead:  Beautiful amethyst! Your post made me realize that my promise ring was also a cabochon. It’s amethyst, too — but heart-shaped.

My cousin’s soon-to-be-wife does! It’s a gorgeous pink sapphire with a star. I didn’t think I liked cabochons until I saw hers.

I don’t have a picture unfortunately.

I guess this also counts as a cobachon – it belonged to my aunt. It is a yellow opal in a very unique crown setting.

ariaK:  Wowza! I love that — both the stone and the setting. My aunt and uncle have matching star sapphire rings, and I’ve always thought they were so unique and beautiful. What an amazing find!

Also, 

pmaliz:  Here’s a picture of my promise ring. I think it counts as a cabochon, even though it’s heart-shaped. It’s an amethyst. I don’t have a good picture of it on my finger — sorry.

ariaK:  I saw your setting with the ceylon sapphire on another thread. It is AMAZING!! I think the ceylon suits the setting perfectly. Beautiful change and choice! But I do agree that star sapphires are beautiful. Now I’m wanting to find one for myself. Ha, ha!

AussieEncore:  That is so pretty! What kind of center stone does it have?

longtimemrs:  It’s a tourmaline.  “”LOVE””.  It’s been my screensaver for months!  I’ve been a fan of cabochons for years, they’re so classy and unusual.
