    This color of topaz is achieved through irradiation in a nuclear reactor and they tend to give a small dose of radioactivity to the wearer. Just mentioning it as it may or may or may not matter to you. It is considered a “safe” amount by the NRC but the situation is a little more complicated than that (there’s actually no such thing as a “safe” level, and the regulation is poor).

    If you like blue, but not sapphire, how about aquamarine or spinel?

    What about blue moissanite? It’s not irradiated, and it will be more durable than topaz for an everyday ring. Plus, it will sparkle :). I don’t think MoissaniteCo carries it anymore, but it can still be found.

    I like 1, 4, and 7. I like the shape of #1, #4 is nice because it looks like multiple bands. Same with #7, it almost looks like an e-ring and wedding band combo

    Beautiful choice. Topaz is a softer stone so I hope you are not a klutz with your rings like I am ๐Ÿ™‚

    @jenart:  I get so exciteid everytime I see the words “help me xhoose ”  and “pic heavy” in the dress and ring boards! haha.

     

    I like your final choice but am batshit over the one you threw over, that is an outstanding design. Why did you throw htat one over? The stone is the same in your final choice so how is the 2nd one sturdier?

    @jenart:  Well then, I’m going to buy that $25 ring and take it to a jeweler to have it copied in diamonds and platinum. Only I think I’ll use tanzanite as the center stone, I love that shade of blue.  (In my dreams Kiss this is happeneing. )
