    @nikkidrew90:  Definitely a colored gemstone! Yellow sapphire would be my pick if I couldn’t have a clear or colored diamond (eg black). 🙂 Like this one from the NSC!

    Coloured gemstone!! They are my favourite non-engagement rings anyway. So much character.

    I have been drooling over this green amethyst ring on etsy!

    Moissanite was my first pick before diamond, so I’d stick with that.  If I couldn’t have a moissanite, I’d have a colored gemstone; and if that wasn’t available, I would go with a white sapphire.

    @nikkidrew90:  I have been drooling over peach sapphire in rose gold halo settings. Swoon! But my diamond is tiny (0.2) so I’m not obviously not much of a diamond girl!

    @rubytuesday:  Ohmy gosh that is beautiful!

    My degree is in geology so I would not want anything manmade (moissanite, CZ). Treated stones are kind of toeing the line. I would prefer something neutral/colorless so that it would go with anything, but it would need to be something with a hardness of 9+. So… I think that just leaves white sapphire. I haven’t seen one in person though, so I’m not sure if I know how I’ll like their look! Interesting question!

    Peach sapphire! I love them with rose gold! I always drool over other bees’ rings that are peach sapphire and rose gold combo.

    Probably not a fair question, since I have an aquamarine by choice anyway!

    I would have an Aquamarine- it’s my FI’s birthstone, and I have always loved the pale blue of it.  It is something I suggested as a centerstone when we were looking but FI insisted that it be a diamond as that is “traditional” for him.

    @nikkidrew90:  I’d stick with my champagne sapphire in rose gold. Diamonds didn’t do anything for me and after trying on several I told my FI I wanted Something other than a diamond. Mossys look too much like diamonds imo and Id still want a little sparkle so that leaves the color gemstones

    I would choose an Adventurine ring.  Its different and I think this stone is GORGEOUS, or I’d pick a Carnelian ring.

    It would obviously be set in real gold and made smaller to look like an E-ring instead of a large everyday ring.

    Probably Morganite with white sapphire sides.

    I would probably go morganite too! I love how it looks in rose gold. (In this picture the sidestones are diamond, so I guess they’d be swapped out for white sapphire or something)
