Gem e-rings, do people ever wonder if it's an e-ring

I have a champagne sapphire, and no one has ever questioned if it is an engagement ring, or asked me why it isn’t a diamond. Maybe I am just lucky to have never run into someone who would ask that. 

Go for the blue sapphire! They are gorgeous.

I have a blue topaz and no one has questioned if it’s an engagement ring. I was worried about this too. So far though the only thing I have gotten was how lovely it is :)

Not a gemstone, but I have a yellow diamond and people asked me a lot at first.  It’s pretty bright so I guess that’s why.

Well, when I told my mother that we had picked out the perfect sapphire ring she said “Oh, so, it’s not an engagement ring.” in such a let down pathetic tone for a second I had forgotten that she offended me and just felt sorry for her. I let it go and it stewed for a few days until I blew up and informed her that she was a product of a diamond society and that sapphires were not only my birthstone but the original engagment ring and that of Princess Diana. She felt like crap as a result of my speech and she also admitted that my tastes have always been more on the eccentric and less on the classic so it made perfect sense :)

A lot of my dating-but-not-engaged friends wear rings on their left ring finger. I have asked a few of them if they were engaged. I don’t see anything wrong with asking. So far the only answer I’ve gotten is, “No.” One girl has been with her guy 5-6 years

I’m gonna be rockin’ a beautiful blue Sapphire in April.  I’ve shown close friends and was prepaed for a bad reaction. They loved it and didn’t say anything negative. if you love it that’s all that matters.

I have an aquamarine but no one has ever asked me if it’s an engagement ring. Probably because it’s a pretty traditional design? Mostly people just tell me how much they love it!

I have an alexandrite and I have never been asked if it’s my ering but if they did I would just say ‘Yes, isn’t it gorgeous’ and leave it at that. Honestly, what does it matter what other people think?

Granted I have a white sapphire and no ones ever asked. But a few of my girlfriends rock gemstone rings and I havent heard anyone ask them if they were ering or not.

I have a purple amethyst and no one’s ever questioned it. I only get compliments for it.

I always assume a ring worn on the left ring finger is an engagement ring/wedding band.

I think any ring will do as an engagement ring as long as it is given with love. In Europe many engagement ring are just plain bands, in gold, white gold or even silver. Diamonds in engagement rings became “populair”in the forties, before a gemstone was very common.

I have a ruby, no one has ever asked me if I’m engaged. Some have said “how unusual” in an admiring tone, and a few women have confided that they would really have preferred a coloured gemstone e-ring. No one has ever said anything negative or rude about my ring.
