This is a pink tourmaline (blue apatite side stones). It’s not the strongest stone available but it’s ok for a RHR. I think I got it from JTV.

@als1214:  I’ve become a little bit of a gem expert since my FI and I had started hunting for my emerald; apparantly pink or peach sapphires is your best bet for a pink gem because they’re resilient and durable.  But my BFF has a beautiful amora moissanite and it’s just SO gorgeous and just as tough as a diamond, and I know those come in pink too!! *swoon* (though I think they would be pricier than a sapphire? Not sure about that tho.)

 

Also, I’ve read a lot of moissanite-hating on the boards, and I just want to set the record straight, so let me organic-chemistry-blow-your-mind for a minute: 

In org. chem, all compouds have a carbon base.  Carbon-Carbon bonds are the strongest (this is what diamonds are, pure carbon).  Silicone is the ONLY other material that can replace carbon in organic chemistry, and fulfill the same configurations.  Therefore, it is just as durable as diamonds.

 

I’ll let the moissy-haters put their brains back together now.

@PuckBunny:  c’mon Bunny, she just wanted to know about pink stones. Let’s not bait Moissy haters here.

@Aquaria:  You’re right, I probably did bait.  I didn’t mean to.  Just wanted to share something that I thought most probably didn’t know.  I couldn’t contain my inner-geek.  I apologize!

Have you considered a garnet that’s more pink than red? I’d post a picture of mine, but I lost my phone and won’t have another one for a few days so I’ll just post a link to the Kay Jewelers picture of my e-ring.

It’s like a dark purple-ish pink. There are even lighter pink garnets out there too.

Also, some amethysts can look quite pink.

@als1214:  I was so about to post a thread requesting pics of pink stones! 🙂 I’m kind of obsessed over a morganite ring I saw online but I’m worried the color is too close to my skintone and would look weird. Hoping some fellow latinas will have some pink stones to show off!

She’s a Kunzite. Also from JTV but I don’t remember how much I paid for her.

I have a Morganite and I love it! Mine is a 1.03 carat stone, light pink, and definitely sparkles! FI ordered the stone from a gem dealer so I’m not sure what he paid.

Rhodolite garnet, if you like a raspberry pink.

@als1214:  The sparkle is different; you’ll get more sparkle out of a moissanite because it refracts double, but you’ll get a crisper sparkle with a sapphire.  Depends what you like!
