- Wedding: August 2012
I’m one of those bees who lusted over halo rings and ended up with a solitaire. My ring is lovely and classic, and I’ve come to appreciate its simple shape and versatility.
But every now and then I’d think about gorgeous halo rings and wish for one. I’m going overseas in August and was looking for a decoy ring in case I get mugged. I wanted to find an affordible white sapphire in a petite setting. I went to Zales and the delicate one I found online was gone….
but I saw a HUGE white sapphire cushion cut halo ring and had to try it on. All my halo lustings came rushing back, and miraculously, the ring was only 30 dollars! I bought it for fun and will probably buy a CZ to take overseas (it’s only for 8 months.)
I was wondering how they could afford to sell white sapphire for such a low price, but it’s lab created and I guess its much cheaper to create. Either way, I don’t mind that it was lab grown. It’s still a 9 on the Mohs scale, so I can wear this daily as a right hand ring. Yay!
So to any bees who lusted after halo rings, I recommend searching for white sapphire rings on sale. Many mall jewelry stores have them in their birthstone section, and if you get sterling silver (like I did) its quite affordable. The white sapphire is shocking white (it makes my ering look slightly discolored, oh well) and reflects back only white light, no multicolored fire. But it’s so pretty I don’t mind one bit. Did any other bees have to satisfy a halo craving?
Here’s some pics. I hope they load 🙂
