I don’t really know much about stones. But you might be better off asking as pricescope.com They know all about rings and stones/gems. 


Good luck and when you get the new ring come back and show us! 🙂

Sapphires come in just about every shade imagineable.  If the sapphire color is a purple you love, I’d definitely go with that.  It’ll be more durable than amethyst.  I’ve had a pink sapphire that I’ve worn for years everday with no problem.

I’d go the sapphire route. They definitely stand the test of time, and like pinkshoes said, you shouldn’t have a problem getting one in the shade of purple you like.

I agree, go with the sapphires. I have a couple amethyst rings and both have small chips in them. I have an heirloom pink sapphire ring as well that is still perfect. I wear them all about the same amount.
