    Oh, if I was a bazillioniare, sure. I quite like pink and purple colored stones.

    But in reality I like having a colorless stone for an e-ring since it goes with everything. If I had a colored stone, I’d feel like I needed to match my outfit with it.

    And I cannot justify the cost of diamonds, so I have a Moissanite.

    Not for me - I love my colorless diamond :)   But I think they are very pretty, and love seeing them on other ladies!

    @Arshim:  Thanks!! I really hope so too *sigh*

    We don’t have a Tiffany’s in my city so we went to the one in Scottsdale AZ when we were on holiday… I went to look at round brilliant white diamonds and the yellows caught my eye (I’ve always had a soft spot for them) and it was just beautiful!

    I love diamonds that are light yellow but non fancy. I’d love something in the Q-Z range (in a colorless diamond halo with a pave band!) but I’m having a hard time convincing my SO. He likes more traditional rings.

    YES! Ugh, I wish I was on my other laptop… I had the best diamond website, all different kinds of colors. I had no idea you could get a blue grey diamond (my favorite color). They are beautiful and look completely different than gemstones. LOVE!

    Ha! I just saw this- computer software developer, lol, he is… Oh and look at that, he just came in here to talk to me about the diagrams he created for the interface of the program he works on.

    I’ve been really enchanted with grey diamonds lately.

    It’s a strange interest, since neither grey nor diamonds are my style. But I think they’re captivating.

    I would have a pink diamond…that wasn’t in you poll.  ;)

    For an engagement ring, I really like either sapphires, or blue diamonds.  I like the symbology of truth.  I’m also partial to violet and black diamonds, though, too.  Pink diamonds are nice, but I don’t think I’d want pink for an engagement ring.  I definitely prefer colored diamonds to clear ones (except for yellow or champagne ones).  The grey ones, if they have good clarity, and are a violet-type grey, it can be really pretty.
