I recently posted about changing my ering (cz) to a white sapphire. I ended up ordering a 2 ct white sapphire solitaire in a simple 10k white gold setting from Overstock (normally a place I don’t find jewelry I like…I’ve ordered before and only kept two rings out of 10) and received it today. I LOVE this ring! I’m shocked! Yes, I know it’s NOT a diamond subsitute at all and it’s not meant to be one but I’m just amazed at how much I love the stone. It has a vintage feel to it and while it doesn’t sparkle like a diamond, it does have a sparkle to it and I just love it. It does the job – is white (the color I want), looks like an engagement ring (fi really wanted a ring that definitely looks like a traditional e-ring and thankfully I do too), has meaning to us, and is affordable! I know I sound corny but there is just something romantic about this stone. I would post a picture but pictures don’t do this ring justice. It’s just simple but I’m in love with this stone!
Thanks to all the bees who helped me with information! I’m thinking that even when we can afford a diamond in the size I want in the future, I might not even get one since I love this so much and it’s the birthstone of September, which has meaning for us!
