Ask for this post to be moved to the Rings forum! 🙂

I’d let your boyfriend surprise you if you like both of the options remaining!

Eother would be gorgeous and should last a lifetime! I agree with PP who told you to let him pick if you like both 🙂

@Owl_Doctor: Get a sapphire with diamond accents!! Do a search for gemstone rings, or check the  ring boards, you’ll find a bunch of threads with all the gorgeous gemstone rings some of the Bees have!

here are some to get you started:



My ring is currently in production, and I’m getting a purple sapphire with diamond accents. And this decision was actually made because SO isn’t really a fan of diamonds, so I’m in a similar situation that you are.

I think colored e-rings are gorgeous!

I love my sapphire and have never regretted not getting a diamond.  It honestly depends on your tastes, how each one looks on your hand, etc.  Diamonds and sapphires are both beautiful, so in the end pick the one that just feels “right”.

Sapphire but I’m partial. I have a purple color change sapphire with diamonds.
