@lawyerbride15:  Aquamarine is very light, but it needs to be cleaned frequently.  You could probably find a pretty pale pink or champagne coloured sapphire.

Aquamarine?  A pale pale blue/green sapphire?  a pale blue sapphire?   A lot of the “standard” e-ring gemstones that are deeply colored also come in paler versions, such as blue, pink, yellow, violet, blue/green sapphires.

Do you have any pics of the setting? Check the basket carefully. Some are integrated – built as part of the ring and some are exchangeable.

Sapphires come in a variety of hue intensitys. I would start there. Natural Sapphire Company would be a good online spot to see what your options are.

Sky blue topaz is what we went with – very pretty, fairly durable, and ridiculously affordable.

not my e-ring, but a light blue topaz ring that I really love! It’s ice-blue, and really sparkly (although it’s not super clean in this pic). Sometimes it’s so light it almost looks white.

Aren’t Montana sapphires typically lighter colored? I would go for a muted tone sapphire. I think  the more saturated a sapphire is, the more expensive it is? I could be wrong, but wanting something paler might save you money. Plus sapphires are durable!

@Pepperwoodsy:  

 

Montana sapphires do seem to be easier to find in lighter tones, and the more saturated colors are indeed more expensive. I would love to be able to upgrade to a light Montana stone in a few years, but as my fiance doesn’t plan to wear her engagement ring after marriage I can’t really see much point. 

http://www.gemfix.com/sapphire_montana.html has a great range of Montana stones. They’re really all over the map!
