    jessjlstar:  Do you have any pics? Personally, I got a blue sapphire because I’ve always wanted a blue stone. I think sapphires are timeless and blue goes with everything. 

    All of the rings that you described sound beautiful. Have you tried any of them on?

    I voted for the peachy-pink sapphire, but then I’m a morganite girl! I like that it’s a hint of colour that stands out, vs. a full on jewel tone like an emerald, etc. And I like girly, lady-like, romantic things, so it worked for me.

    My second vote is definitely for the blue sapphire, primarily because I’m into vintage rings and have looked extensively and love the sapphires–even the green ones!

    White sapphires, for me, fall a little flat. If I want a sapphire, I want some colour. If I wanted a white/clear stone, I’d go moissanite for all of its fire!

    By the way, it might be an easier choice for us bees if you could post some pics of the these three rings! Besides, we all love some ring porn!

    I LOVE sapphires- my ering is a natural yellow sapphire (which would definitely be my favorite).  

    Of those 3 choices I would definitely have to pick the blue (also like pears!).  White would be my least favorite.  I don’t really see the point of getting a sapphire over a traditional diamond if it wasn’t for the brilliant gorgeous colors.  Peachy pinks can be pretty (not really a pink girl though), but I often find pepto bismal to be the common shade of pink.  Blue sapphires are really pretty- I actually like the lab created ones better than the natural.  They are a brighter blue, while natural blue stones look almost black to me.

    jessjlstar:  They are all very beautiful! I love the blue, but personally, I would find the ring too big. I love the shape of the cushion cut sapphire. What colour of stone do you prefer? Will the company that you are looking at change the type of sapphire for the setting? For instance, if you wanted a blue cushion cut sapphire instead of the peach, would they be able to do that? That will give you more options. (as you can tell, I’m a tad biased towards the blue sapphire).

    jessjlstar:  That’s kind of how I feel. Blue is timeless (not that peach isn’t), and it goes with everything. I also knew that it was something that I wouldn’t get tired of.

    I have a peachy pink sapphire RHR in rose gold. My daughter’s e-ring has two blue pear sapphires. The great thing about sapphires is their wide range of color. That being said, I’m not fond of white sapphires. They don’t have the fire of diamond and their sparkle is just kind of flat.

    I just want to point out that sapphire (corundum) is a *very* dense stone. The size of sapphire to fill that setting would probably be over 2.5cts, esp in cushion cut.

    But you’re getting a lab sapphire, so size/cost isn’t as much of an issue. Unheated/untreated mined sapphires can be very pricey.

    jessjlstar:  I was in a similar position to you and tossing up between blue or pale pink sapphire.  Originally I wanted blue, then I tried on a pink ring (actually pink diamond, but that’s way too expensive for me) and it was game over!  I love the warmth of the pink, rather than the cool of blue.  Pale pink also goes with everything that I wear.

    Have you considered spinel?  It’s an affordable hard wearing natural stone that comes in many colours and has fire to rival diamond.  The only reason I didn’t get spinel was because I wanted a small stone (less than a carat) and spinels are hard to find any less that a carat.

    jessjlstar:  Where are you looking? What is your price range? I’m pretty good at digging up stones :).
