I’ve been wanting a citrine/yellow topaz e-ring, but my SO seems to really be pushing towards a blue sapphire. My favorite color is yellow and there isn’t a single color that I don’t think yellow matches, but I do love blue sapphire too and think blue is a super color as well. I just wear a lot of oranges and reds sometimes and sapphire doesn’t really look so awesome with those colors.
When you picked your gemstone, did you keep in mind what it matched with? And, do you think it looks weird if your e-ring doesn’t match your clothes?

<—- My e-ring is my avatar.
A yellow sapphire ring with a double halo of yellow sapphires and diamonds.
The color of the clothing I wear wasn’t even a consideration when debating what color stone I was going to get. I knew that I LOVED yellow sapphires and that was it.
There’s really no need to be THAT coordinated in the big scheme of things.

I have a blue diamond, and honestly, I never worried about the stone matching any of my clothing. I absolutely love the ring my Fiance chose, and in my own mind (though I might be a bit crazy…), I like to think that everything I wear enhances the blue of the stone, not clashes with it.

I have a center diamond with two sapphire sidestones and I’ve never given a thought to how it matches. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my ring and couldn’t care less!!!
Although…. lol, now that I think about it, I do tend to wear a lot of blue… so it works out!

My stone is a tsavorite garnet (it’s emerald green) and I have never thought twice about it matching what I’m wearing. It’s just my ring!

My wedding band has some emeralds in it, and I didn’t worry about clothing when I chose it. I figure my ring is my ring.

Hahaha. I TOTALLY hear you. I have a lilac sapphire and was concerned about being able to wear red with it. I have some really smokin’ red dresses that I love. Lol. The first few weeks that I had my ring I will confess to trying to match my outfits with it which, in retrospect, is kind of hilarious. Needless to say I still wear red sometimes, and it doesn’t clash THAT badly… not to mention I’m pretty sure little neurotic me is the only one who would ever notice that anyways.
I don’t think matching it with your general wardrobe palate is crazy though. I wear a lot of pastels and greys so it works out perfectly and I think as an adult you know which colours you are more bound to wear. If you wear a lot of warm bright colours then power to you girl! Yellow stones are stunning!

Okay, I had a three stone ring with diamonds and rubies. (Diamond in the middle, two rubies flanking it). I wore it for 6 years before getting my upgrade ring. Honestly, yes, sometimes the rubies bothered me. I think more subtle colors would blend in, blue or yellow or even pink, but my stones were a bright blood red color. It felt odd sometimes wearing it with pink, or whatever. I do love the flash of color though, and miss it sometimes!

Nope! I never really cared if it matched all my clothes. I have been a fan of black diamonds for awhile. I got a black diamond with white diamonds on the band though so the ring matches everything I wear really. I admire the ring most of all cuz of what it symbolizes between my Fiance and I and that it’s a gift from him.

@LaurenK0105: Would you consider a yellow sapphire? Citrine and topaz tend to be very fragile, so for an every day ering it might not be ideal.

I have a light blue sapphire and I never even thought to match it to my clothes. I don’t think people would be like, OMG, her ring doesn’t match her dress ahahaha. It just seems silly to me, get whatever you want!!

I have a light blue sapphire too and it “matches” everything. Even if it didn’t I wouldn’t worry about it:)

I have a moissanite e-ring and a diamond wedding band but I wear a CZ sapphire birthstone ring and a CZ peridot birthstone ring stacked with my set (I’ve posted quite a few pictures you’ve probably seen it). The colored rings don’t bother me at all but I’m not sure if I could have made the commitment to a colored gemstone e-ring. I like having the set I have because if I really feel it doesn’t match what I’m wearing then I could just wear my wedding band and e-ring.
If I did get a colored stone e-ring I would have either gone with blue (dark blue sapphire) or green because they are both neutrals and go with just about everything. A yellow or bright red stone might stand out a bit more.

I have an amethyst but I wear a ton of black,white and grey so it always “goes” with my outfit.
I’m more worried about nail polish, tbh. I used to love wearing bright neon polish but it just looks weird against my pale purple stone.

@KatyElle: I would be perfectly fine with a yellow sapphire. The problem here is my SO seems pretty insistent on a blue sapphire! We looked at some E-rings online and I would gush over any yellow gemstone and he’d be like “oh but look, here’s this blue sapphire!” Then I started freaking out, what if he already got me a blue sapphire Engagement Ring and is trying to make sure he’s made the right choice so I tried to complement some blue ones. I have no problem with the blue, I just love yellow 10x more.
@all: You’re making me feel much better about the huge possibility my guy will go with a blue sapphire and the fact that the colors that look best on me are in the hot pink/salmon/orange/peach/yellow range. It’s good to know that people aren’t like “man that chick is crazy wearing a blue ring with an orange shirt.” It would probably drive me nuts for the first couple weeks/months, but I’m sure I’d get used to it. I love my peridot ring and maybe could get used to wearing mismatched rings by wearing it with everything I own until my SO actually proposes.
