    Honestly, I was just at the Smithsonian gem collection at the Natural History museum and there are so many BEAUTIFUL gems out there and they aren’t even sold in stores. All you can really find are

    opals

    rubies

    emeralds

    topaz

    sapphires

    diamonds

     

    and some small stones in most birth stones. Super bummer. Loved some of the more out there gems in the national collection. Would love one of those!

    I have a diamond e-ring but I have seen some beautiful sapphires rings.  I saw a gorgeous yellow sapphire on here. I would be fine with a colored non-diamond.

    I have a tourmaline and absolutely love it.

    ETA: What the hey, it’s posted everywhere else, may as well be consistent… 🙂

    Mine is an Asha – a man-made and hand cut stone that has a carbon coating on it, so it’s as hard as a diamond.

    Here’s a picture of it with my band:

    I have a diamond, but I really like the look of moissanite. I’m getting a right-hand ring from moissaniteco.

    mine is a sapphire, but i used to always think of a diamond ering. the bee has opened up the possibility of asha and moissanite and imo, they’re a good deal compared to diamonds. i might get those for my wedding band or right hand ring 😉

    @Miss Tattoo: Will do! I looove seeing pictures of your ring. (You should totally post one for the OP to see since she may not have seen it yet.) We’re actually discussing getting a stone to put into my current setting and selling my diamond center stone (not attached to it, I’m just in love with my setting). Not sure yet.
