Completing.Our.Family:  I don’t have a huge center stone to share, but you might want to re-consider topaz and tourmaline as forever stones. They aren’t the most durable. If you want a colored gemstone I’d suggest a sapphire instead. Check out The Natural Sapphire Company website and prepare to fall in love!

Large, light colored sapphires are somewhat rare and fairly pricey. That was my first choice. 🙂 I ended up going with a 2.67 ct aquamarine. It’s the beautiful softer, ocean blue shade and a little harder than topaz.

Beautiful! Also blue zircon… *DROOLS*  .  You can also set the stone in an amazing bezel to protect it. I chose a halo for my ring. Both because I wanted the look of the white tiny diamonds against the intensity of the color of the center stone and because if I bang the ring, the first thing to hit whatever I hit would be the halo, not the center stone.  Might not e enough but then again, even diamonds can crack and depending on the setting and cut, failry easy at times! So some of it is pure luck. Obviously going for stones that crack with sudden temperature changes is not a good idea. But the rest I’d say some is luck
