@Minae:  There are a couple recent threads about that very thing. I felt badly for those gals getting reactions like that. I plan on getting a moissy (most likely) and if I have to hear cr*p about it…. grrrr.

My SO’s aunt flat out told me the blue topaz ring I picked out is not a “real” engagement ring. She harps on my SO all the time about it… Even though I’M the one who picked it out! So annoyinggg

I feel like the issue people (read… me) have is when anyone says that anyone else’s choice isnt good enough. 


Want diamond… buy diamond

want moissy… buy moissy

want gemstone… buy gemstone


Have something and love it… yay! 

Someone else has something you would totally hate but they love… great for them!


End of arguement.

I haven’t gotten any direct replies and the feedback I have gotten is great but if anyone asks they’ll get the story and reason behind my ring which makes it far more special to me than anything else could be!  I love all rings, I love the variations and stones and everything else and for me, my ring was IT, and for DH and I, and he claims to love my ring more than I do (since it is based on his eyes lol) – we know that it is US and that’s all we care about.


Off to find a pic of your aquamarine – LOVE them, almost went with one but couldn’t find one in the right shade to match DH’s eyes but mine often gets mistaken for one!

I’m sorry they’re being so rude about your aquamarine ring. I have a diamond engagement ring but I love aqaumarine, it’s a gorgeous gemstone. I imagine your ring is gorgeous. Sounds like the people aroud you are close-minded.
