    If you’re on the fence, colored accent stones or surprise stones are a good middle ground. I have a tiny pink diamond side stone, which is enough color to make me happy, but is still pretty subtle.

    I have a sapphire engagement ring and yes, sometimes people make comments and say it doesn’t look like an engagement ring. The color combination is unusual too (blue sapphire with yellow gold) and even though I wear a wedding band with it, people have said that they didn’t know I was married because they didn’t think it was a wedding set. 

    Those comments perturb me, but honestly… WHO CARES. Other people look at my ring for maybe 30 seconds, but I look at it every day for the rest of my life, and I love it! I wouldn’t want anything else. It’s very ‘me’. I wanted something unconventional because that’s who I am, and I wanted my ring to reflect my personality.

    I love color to and ended up getting a yellow diamond halo around my center diamond. Maybe you can do something like that?

    Go for it ! I love my sapphire e-ring and think it’s the bomb. Another woman where I work just got engaged and has a sapphire, too. We like to congratulate each other’s good taste. Tongue Out. No one has ever told me that they didn’t think my ring was an engagement ring.

    I LOVE my sapphire e-ring! I’ve never had anyone say it doesn’t look like an engagement ring- and I personally like the pop of color in pictures etc. However, diamonds have never appealed to me which is also probably why I never notice the lack 😀

    Ummm…if a coloured ering was good enough for two princesses then why not for you?!

    The whole diamond thing is a marketing gimmick from DeBeers anyways.

    in other words…do what YOU want and don’t worry about what other people say because I  the end what they say/think really doesn’t matter.

    Oh…and yes…I have an alexandrite ering and I wore a deep purple dress and EVERYONE loves them both!

    @Kazza:  sooo that aquamarine ring is gorgeous! I have a puple sapphire (with diamond sidestones). I haven’t received any weird/rude comments about my ring. Purple is my favorite color (and I’m basically obsessed) so people aren’t surprised. It’s also how you wear it…if you wear it proudly, people will compliment (unless they’re jerks, and do you really care what jerks think?). And yes, it feels like an engagement ring, because it’s the ring my FI put on my finger when he proposed to me! I love my ring and it’s more perfect for me than any diamond would have been.

    Bottom line: go with what you love and will feel comfortable wearing, and own it! 🙂

    @Kazza:  i have a diamond on my finger and doosh bag guys still dont notice it as a sign that I’m not on the market haha.

    one of my BFs has an AMAZING aquamarine e-ring and my mum has a pale blue sapphire. I think they are both beyond fabulous. If my birthstone was a sapphire that’s what I would have got (but its diamond and my SO is traditional). I would have got deep blue as that goes with everything and I’m one of those tragic weirdos who would need there ring not to clash their outfit ;-p

    my engagement ring/ promise ring is a color ring its a dark blue topaz and some diamonds surrounding it it looks awesome. I think it depends on what colors your pairing together.

    How about coloured diamonds?.  Try Diamonds by Lauren or ask a jeweller to use coloured diamonds rather than the usual white ones.
