I have an emerald.  But I don’t have a camera, so it’s kind of a lousy picture.

@Mrs.Lotus:  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.

@Mrs.Lotus: 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.

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

@Mrs.Lotus: 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.

@Mrs.Lotus: 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 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.
