Wow…so many rings posted since I last checked. Thank you also to the other poster who sent me the link to you ring. Oh gosh…I am just so in love with your ring… So in love… You are so lucky! I hope to have a ring like that one day!
I swear…I am loving the ruby color so much now that I see your ring and the other ruby posted.
I just love all the rings posted above!! Too many to comment on but ladies, they are all gorgeous! Love all the blues and purples and tourmaline (so original!) and love the rose gold. I don’t see that often at all. So pretty with the diamond.
Please post more! With this heat, I’m stuck inside and love seeing these unique rings!
Can I ask you all…what is your typical response when people see you don’t have the traditional diamond? My husband isn’t convinced about me having a pink ring, or even a blue sapphire, but I think after all this time of me changing my mind and talking about rings incessantly, he doesn’t care anymore. ha ha

I have an emerald. But I don’t have a camera, so it’s kind of a lousy picture.
People not quite knowing how to respond is one of my favorite things about having a gemstone ring! I LOVE that it doesn’t broadcast my status the way a diamond would, but the fact that it’s on my left ring finger makes people wonder. I get a lot of comments from people saying they love the ring, and a few comments asking if it’s an engagement ring. It seems like most people who don’t know me well suspect it is but aren’t confident in their suspicions. (it’s not that I don’t want people to know I’m attached… I just feel weird wearing a symbol of attachment when my fiance isn’t yet)
I’ve found that in my peer group/age group and area, gemstone rings are actually fairly common. I have two female friends who are currently engaged, and neither of them have diamond center stones (one has a sapphire, the other an aquamarine).

here’s another shot of it. It’s a dark blue sapphire and often looks black.

My ring is all over the bee but here it is again:
My ring is a yellow sapphire.
I’ve gotten mainly positive feedback about my ring. Many people think it’s SO different, but also think it’s just a canary yellow diamond. I don’t share what it is unless people ask. However, I think sapphires have become more popular due to Princess Kate’s engagement ring.

Honestly, I haven’t gotten one single person commenting negatively on the fact I don’t have diamonds. Everyone wants to know what kind of stones they are because they’ve never seen anything like them, but it’s always asked in a postive way.

I love your ring. It looks regal and I love sapphire!
I find that really interesting…that people wonder b/c it’s on your left hand but are not sure if it is an e-ring. I think gemstones are becoming more popular too but my husband isn’t too familar with it so he thinks it’s kind of odd, but at least isn’t opposed to it! Gorgeous ring by the way!
Wow, wow, wow…that’s all I have to say. 🙂
that’s good to know. I still keep wavering between the pink sapphire and blue sapphire 3 stone ring. I love the solitaire but wonder if people won’t think I’m married but in another sense, why should I let it bother me. I’m glad to see more women having gemstone e-rings. i love your set…so unique and such a one-of-a kind!

I chose a purple sapphire. I am sooo happy with my choice! Here is mine.

I have a white sapphire center with blue sapphire sides, so most of the time, it doesn’t raise too many eyebrows. But, I just explain that I love sapphires, they are my birthstone, and we got engaged in September, so it just seemed fitting. I usually don’t lauch into my whole list of other reasons we chose a sapphire unless I know the person well.

I haven’t recieved any negative feedback from anyone about my ring. I was a bit fearful about it, but the comment I always get is “I love that you got something besides just a diamond. The ruby fits you so well!” But then again, I also have diamonds in the side-stones and I thinkn the three-stone ring looks very much like an engagement ring, so people don’t mistake it for a random gemstone ring.

I don’t get many comments on my ring. I don’t know if they figure it isn’t an engagement ring or what. Even when they do see it, they will say, “oh” or “oh, nice.”

I love your ring! I drool everytime you post it!

Haha! I wish she would come back and post her band! I’d love to see it!

I have a pink e-ring!! I have posted the CAD drawings of it before but never the real deal. Excuse the allergy sausage fingers… we were sitting in the grass.

Ooohh…love it!!! Do you ever find it annoying that it doesn’t “match” things, like your outfit? Sorry, know that can be a dumb question but I do wonder about that. Also, do you still love it as much as when you first got it? I change my mind so frequently, that I worry I’ll have regret with a color gemstone in a sense, since I’ve worn a diamond for so many years.
