Apparently the SO has saved up cash for said ring but hasnt started payments yet.Its still a mystery if my fav ring will win out.(he loves surprises!)
So Im thinking that I would get some of the input from the hive on which ring you yourselves would enjoy. Ultimately it is up to my SO of course but Im just curious as to what you all think 🙂 I like seeing what everyone prefers in the end.
All are about the same size (over 2 carats) and the same price (or around there)
my ring size (finally found it!) is a 6
here they are!
In order- lavender amethyst
aquamarine (the leading contender because have told SO I loved it)
tourlamine (mispl?) and SO’s favorite because the man loves anything and everything green
So vote in the poll and let me know what you think!

They are all very beautiful, but I voted for the aquamarine because it is my birthstone 🙂

I prefer the aquamarine. I love the color and I prefer the shape. My second choice would be the amethyst. But really…you can’t go wrong with any of them. So exciting!

@noritake22: Thank you, we spent alot of time searching for these babies in our price range and Im glad we found them- honestly we talked about which one to pick for weeks, so ultimately I told SO- you do it! Cus I cant pick decisively! All I know is that I love the aquamarine because its shape and how reflective it is!
@kelmac: Indeed 🙂 Im very excited about it- also you picked up on the thing I liked the most about the second choice…the shape!

And the tourlamine is making a comeback in the polls!
and some how Im managing to sound like someone announcing the Kentucky Durbey!

I love the aquamarine. I like all three, but the aquamarine to me is most “neutral” if that makes sense. It would be best for every day wear. And I love the shape and the milgrain band.

@SapphireSun: Yes thats the reason I liked it too- it seems classic and timeless
the other two I have reasons for though as well
I love purple- its my fav colour and I love lavender very much as a flower, scent and color
SO’s colour is most certainly green- he LOVES it- so if I wanted something that completely reflected him it would be that ring
But we both love blue…so oddly enough my money is still on that one! Cus we both agree its great 🙂
ETA: Im surprised more people havent picked the first one :S I was sure that one would win out cus its so different!

The tourmaline is O.M.G.!!!!! The color is so rich and deep, I don’t think I would ever get tired of looking into it. That’s my pick!

@jayce: ahhh someone else who loves green! Indeed it really is deep and clean isnt it? I love that about it also, and you have to admit when compared next to the diamond halo it stands out the most out of all three! 😀 glad you like!
Looks like alot of people agree with you also as well 😀

@cyndistar3: 🙂 great to hear! Thanks for voting!
Still surprised so few for the first one….but not so surprised that the second one is winning at the moment 🙂

Voted for the third, because green is my favorite color! And I’m with jayce, the color is so rich, I would never get tired of it.

I am a bit shocked as well, it is beautiful! I am just not a purple person myself =)

@babybumblebee: Thank you for voting! Indeed it looks like that one is alot more popular than I thought it would be
@cyndistar3: Its also not the most valuable out of the three actually from what I can tell from the charts I looked at (yes, I couldnt make up my mind and had to resort to value charts lol)
I think (and I could be wrong on this) the value of stone goes aquamarine, tourmaline, and amethyst- but I think thats for average quality of gems
Any jewelry bees out there?

I LOVE the amethyst, but the aquamarine is stunning – actually, heck, all THREE are gorgeous rings. Love them!
