I have a white topaz necklace. It is very pretty and shiny but idk if sparkly is quite the right word for it. Also, it’s rose cut and you can see right through it so you can see my skin/ clothing under it when I wear it

I think it’s a pretty stone, but I wanted sparkle for my engagement ring. You might also check out white sapphires.

I had a blue topaz pre-engagement ring, and my actual engagement ring is a white sapphire. There is really no comparison. The sapphire is very sparkly, and the topaz, even a colorful one, looks dull and clear next to it. This is just my personal experience, though I know some ladies are overjoyed with their white topaz rings. I definitely recommend a white sapphire if you’re looking for a diamond alternative. More cost-conscious than a moissy, and there’s something so lovely about having a natural stone. They don’t sparkle quite like a diamond, especially under natural light, but they have a very unique beauty all their own. I proudly tell everyone my ring is a white sapphire, but if you’re looking for something that looks exactly like a diamond, I might go for a moissy.

cdpslh913059487:  Well on a small budget I guess you can’t have everything.  I compromised on a small ring because I wanted a good quality diamond.  Sounds like you’d rather have the size.  For the budget you are looking at in that size you are deffs looking at white sapphire or topaz or CZ but in my opinion all those simulants look fake and like “costume jewelry” in that size.  They are pretty in their own right, but certainly don’t have the sparkle of diamond or moissy, hence the price difference.  I think it looks much better in a coloured stone as they tend to have more sparkle and prettiness due to the colour and look deliberate rather than a “fake” diamond.  Just my opinion though.

A 2 carat white sapphire in white gold, pear cut, would probably run between $1500 and $2000. A moissy of that same size will run between $2000 and $4000. A white topaz in that range is between $500 and $1000 (depends on quality, lab-created or natural, and quality of the cut) but any white topaz that big is going to look very clear and see-through. To simulate a diamond that big, I would definitely go for a different kind of stone, probably a moissy. If you just like topazes for themselves though, go for it! Gemstone rings are so beautiful, but if I were going that big, I might do something more special like a blue topaz or a pink topaz.

I like the aquamarine and the morganite! Those colors are beautiful. You may want to research the hardness and durability though. I’ve heard morganite can damage pretty easily. I found this similar ring from an Etsy seller as a peach sapphire, and sapphire is an 8 on the hardness scale, right under diamonds.
