I used to be a geologist, and it’s the reason why I have the ring I do! It is a diamond, but not too traditional since it’s a rough diamond (uncut). I liked the idea of having a stone that looks unprocessed and like it just came out of the Earth.

I’ll play! I picked out a 3 stone blue sapphire ring. No regrets here, sapphires have always been my favourite stone (thank you Princess Diana, her ring remains my favourite).

My e-ring has a sky/cornflower blue sapphire as the centre stone and recycled diamonds in the band. To begin with, I didn’t want diamonds at all (for ethical reasons), but then the jeweller had recycled diamonds to hand, so we went with those.

I can’t seem to upload a pic now, but will try to do so once I’m back at my own computer.

Mine is a sapphire that looks purple in fluorescent light and blue in natural light. It is genuine but heat treated, almost exactly one carat. I think it is elegant but not flashy. It’s me. I love it. I fell in love with the stone but we got that months before we went and looked at settings. Ultimately the engagement was a surprise, so I got the best of both worlds, getting something I was sure to like but also the romantic surprise.

sjhanddab2014:  Thank you! That’s it with the flash/natural light. They are normally a lovely deep blue. Love that ring!

damarajade: Thanks! I’ve attached a closer pic of the side. The jewel took my ‘3 stone and vintage looking’ and this is what she found. I also added the picture she sent me so you can see it in white gold. 

 

 

And my set just cause, 🙂

damarajade:  Well, it all started about a year and a half ago when he asked me ” If you could have any engagement ring you wanted, what would you want”?  I started to think about it ( maybe a little too hard ) and he asked agin before I got out and answer, but this time he didn’t say the word “engagement”. I immediately stopped and asked which question he wanted me to answer. He was shocked and said the answer should be the same. I said no, it wasn’t. When he said engagement ring , I was thinking along the diamond route, but diamonds aren’t my favorite stone. I prefer colors. From then on, I was on a Google search for the prettiest pink stone I could find. I stumbled upon a picture of a warm pink stone and proclaimed that it was the one. Turns out my favorite stone was a mix of orange and pink ( duh…I love those colors. Lol). 

 

Here is my engagement ring: 1.87 natural untreated padparadscha sapphire in a diamond an 18K gold setting. I love how the color varies with the lighting. I really like having something different and rare.
