@gpiglet:  Opal is not a good option… The stone is way too soft and not durable.

Whats her favorite color? What is her birthstone? His birthstone? And what is the budget?

@gpiglet:  does she not want sapphire because she doesn’t want blue, or because she doesn’t like sapphires in general? Because sapphires come in a rainbow of colors. She could get a green, yellow, pink, orange (etc) sapphire. Sapphires are very durable, but she could get a unique color that isn’t commonly seen.

I have a green sapphire which is pretty uncommon. Sapphires come in all of the shades of the rainbow they’re not just blue pink or yellow. 

color change sapphire might be a good option if she wants something really unique. You can find lots of them on Ebay.

@gpiglet:  I have a black diamond. I’ve only seen them here on the Bee and a couple eternity bands in stores so having a black diamond feature stone isn’t incredibly common right now. And there are tons of other colors for diamonds too!

Here is mine.  It is a rubellite tourmaline (so not as hard as diamond or sapphire, but not as soft as emerald, lol) in a halo setting.  I had complete control over my ring and center stone, and wanted something unique and totally me, and so I searched long and hard.  This stone is my favorite color…magenta pink.  

 

 

Rubellites have a bit of dual coloring to them, mine is very strong red-pink, so in certain lights it goes very red, and gets mistaken often for a ruby.

@gpiglet:  gotcha. well, sapphires come in so many colors!

 

I have a purple sapphire, which is fairly uncommon. I’ve only seen a handful on the Bee, and never one in real life. Also, it changes colors depending on the light–sometimes I see blue, sometimes hints of red.

London blue topaz and alexandrite are two options that are gorgeous and uncommon. 

London blue topaz is like the teal version of sapphire in my opinion

And alexandrite is a color change stone which makes it more unique.

What about rubies? I love the rich color of rubies and I rarely see then used as engagement rings! Here’s some ideas:

Also, be sure to check out Gemvara.com. You can customize rings there and choose all kinds of gemstones! The second ring I posted above is a Gemvara ring.
