    Iolite is a lot bluer than that… you should post one! I think they’re WAY prettier than amethyst, pretty as that is. They also change color a bit to be bluer or purpler depending on the light.

    I have iolite side stones and iolite was the main stone in one of the rings FH and I looked at. (ETA had a thing about hardness here then realized you mentioned it already haha)

    My favorite on this list though is Morganite. I so badly want an RHR of some variety of pink sapphire. I’m hoping for a padparasha someday, if we can ever afford such a thing.

    I voted for morganite, I love it with rose gold! My second choice would be the aquamarine. I prefer softer hued gemstones with rose gold but all are gorgeous!

    I loved the amethyst, but I’ve always been a sucker for that shade of purple. My personal preference for stones is sapphire, though – I’ve got a yellow sapphire engagement ring 🙂

    I actually like the aquamarine stone best, but I voted for the morganite because I think it looks best in the rose gold.  If you were going with white gold or platinum, my vote would be for the aquamarine.

    I agree with sailor_girl that the morganite looks best with the rose gold.  The aquamarine is my second choice … I think it still looks nice with the rose gold, but the morganite is stunning!

    I have a morganite and it really isn’t that pink, which if you’re not that crazy about pink. Mine is untreated (so less vivid) and looks more of a champagne color in most lights. I think it is beautiful and subtle.

    A suggestion since you love blue and your FI loves purple…how about alexandrite? That is what I have and I absolutely love it! The colour change gives you so many different colours.

    Here’s a couple pictures of mine:

    I think the amethyst has the nicest color out of all of those pictured, but you have to be a fan of that checkerboard cut. The aqua is very pretty. To my eyes, I see more brown and white tones in that morganite than pink. I’d suggest a peach, pink, or champagne lab sapphire over a morganite, JMHO.
