@Grafton86:  I think it would make a beautiful ering. However quartz is only a 7 on Mohs. The good news is that the stone is inexpensive so you can replace it if it gets damaged. Unfortunatey there are not many transparent hard pink genuine gemstones out there.There is rhodonite but that is even softer on the moh’s scale as is pink opal.

@Grafton86:   I just did a quick search and there are translucent pink sapphires out there as well. Sapphires are typically a 9 on the Moh’s scale. Would wear much better than the rose quartz but have a similar look. : -)Lauren K rose cut translucent pink sapphire “Misha” ring - View #1

@Grafton86:  I’ve seen translucent and even quite opaque pink sapphire jewelry on etsy and other websites before, in assorted shades. It might take a bit more digging around to find the exact shade you’re after, but sapphire is so much tougher than quartz.

Rose quartz is dirt cheap, but it’s not very durable. Even though it may just cost a few bucks to buy a new rose quartz center stone, it would get tiresome paying and waiting to get it reset repeatedly over the years.

Then again, some people wear very fragile stones on their fingers daily and are very satisfied with how they hold up. I guess it all comes down to lifestyle and how often you want to wear your e-ring!

@Grafton86:  I love it! I think the rose gold will look absolutely beautiful with an opaque pink centre stone!

I love the ring! I think the rose gold will really compliment the pink 🙂 my ering is the same shape and style as yours and i think ovals are the best 🙂 I see a lot of girls with gemstone erings and it lasts a pretty long time for them so you shouldn’t have any issues 🙂

@Grafton86:  I really like the look of this ring with the opaque rose quartz (and think it’d look better in rose gold),  but I’ve definitely heard quartz is not durable enough for everyday wear.

As someone who has a quartz engagement ring, a word of caution:

When I brought my ring to be resized, the jeweler noticed that the stone had been cracked when the stone was set (by a different jeweler). Once we saw the crack, we couldn’t un-see it, so we’re replacing the quartz with an Asha.

I currently have a Herkeimer diamond (clear quartz) and it doesn’t shine nearly as much as other stones. In case sparkle is a must have for you.

All of this said, I think the design you’ve chosen is GORGEOUS and love the pale pink with the halo and rose gold!

A pink stone in a rose gold setting would be fantastic!
