emilypaige:  I think it is a very savvy idea and the etsy store has gorgeous jewelry!  I’d say no pearls, my friend always says pearls bring tears (so just in case!  Or is it a moonstone?).  I love the pink one though, it’s gorgeous, and the last one goes very well with your set.   She also has GORGEOUS opal rings!  And the Quartz is stunning: https://www.etsy.com/listing/195923269/quartz-ring-gold-ring-set-with-an-ice?ref=shop_home_active_21 .

I wouldn’t recommend a stone that is under an 9 on MOH’s Scale of Hardness and even then I would think twice. Even sapphires and rubies at a 9 (corundum) are softer than a diamond. See how the chart jumps up? The difference between a 9 and 10 is still a steep jump.

Emeralds are very fragile stones and need special care. If it’s a ring you want to wear all the time, sapphires (my favourite) are less expensive than rubies. Actually rubies are more expensive than diamonds – and far more rare.

What a pleasure to see another TB lover here 🙂

Maybe silver/wg ring with labradorite/smokey quarts or jade?

(seriously, my yellow gold wedding band not really goes with bracelet.. what a pity)

Out of those 3, I like the pink one.  I love the citrine one she has.  Like a pp said, just be careful because they will need extra care.

emilypaige:  Out of the rings you posted, I really like the pink one and the pearl ones.

It seems like Etsy has tons of options.

This is a huge 16mm labradorite ring. Too large to wear every day, but pretty nonetheless. https://www.etsy.com/listing/198285075/20-off-labradorite-ringgemstone

This is a labradorite ring in a design similar to what you posted above: https://www.etsy.com/listing/122031696/20-off-sterling-silver-ringlabradorite (same shop, she also has ovals, squares, and rectangles… and seems to have a second, separate shop with even more labradorite options https://www.etsy.com/shop/AnemoneUnique?ref=l2-shopheader-name)

 

Here’s a 10x8mm oval: https://www.etsy.com/listing/96730963/labradorite-ring-sterling-silver-10x8mm

 

Vestigia Fortuna even has an 8mm Labradorite: https://www.etsy.com/listing/171006165/gold-ring-set-with-a-blue-flash

And this one looks really cool: https://www.etsy.com/listing/202138385/8mm-labradorite-ring-celtic-engagement

It really depends on what you like and what your style is–there are tons of options. If you’re looking for a gemstone (sapphire, ruby, etc), you’ll get more bang for your buck if you go with a lab-created gemstone, and your gemstone will have the same physical properties as a naturally mined one. I only mention that because I know you’re getting an Amora Gem, so it doesn’t seem as if you’re averse to lab-created stones. Sapphires can come in a variety of colors too, if blue is not what you’re into.

SavannahJ051212:  That citrine is gorgeous as well!

I’ve always wanted an opal! These are some from Pinterest

My great aunt worn an opal ring (notoriously “soft” stone) for ~50 yrs and it still looks good. As long as precautions are taken and the stone is properly taken care of, even a “soft” stone will last.

I been wearing a topaz continuous for the past 4-5 years. Still looks good as it did when I first put it on, don’t see any wear with my loupe. Clean it weekly and take it off for any potential “hands on” tasks (gym, housework, gardening, showering, sleeping, etc). I try not to knock it on things but it has happened a couple of times.

  • Wedding: A very pretty church.

emilypaige: I would probably try to match metals and go with a silver/white gold/palladium rhr as that seems to be the colour of the rest of you stuff. Faceted moonstones are my jam, I love this one 

Also, and I thought of this when I saw your beads…

Unfortunately sold, but they have plenty more and would probably be open to a custom design.

Another option is an ornate band.

Happy wishlisting!

emilypaige:  Get something that you like & matches your everyday jewelry. A white metal. The ering matches anything.
