@azure: Thank you so much! I’m glad I have a moonstone/Berkeley buddy on here! lol Yeah! I got it locally I actual ended up with two.. long story short I got my original monstone from M Lowe and Co but I went with another Jeweler for the band and the setting(Oaks Jewelers On Solano Ave.)  and the people they sent it out to set it cracked it! But Jeff(the owner) was really awesome and he ordered several blue moonstones from san francisco for me to pick from until I found the one that was like the first one I had. He had it faceted for me and gave me the one they cracked for no charge!

Me! I chose a moonstone because I think they’re gorgeous, unique and I believe the meaning is perfect for a wedding band or engagement ring!

Here’s my 1.85ct rose cut blue rainbow moonstone in a 14K white gold setting :]

I couldn’t be happier with our choice!

Actually, not all opaque gemstones are easily damaged. For example, many star sapphires are opaque, and they are tougher than the harder diamond.

Anyway, I’m following this thread now. 🙂

@azure:  i initially wanted seed pearls on my band but they are so soft the fall out with daily wear and break. I would thing twice about it. perhaps get a rhr that you dont plan to wear often?

I don’t have this kind of e-ring but just wanted to say I love opaque gems. They are really gorgeous. Moonstone is mesmerizing…  turquoise just makes me happy when I see it for some reason… etc. 🙂

@Minutiae:  I usually don’t think of emerald as opaque. I know they can be… I’ve got a necklace with tiny opaque emerald beads… but they aren’t usually thought of that way. They are green beryl. Beryls are generally known by their translucent form. For example, a lot of bees have morganite engagement rings that are very translucent. Morganite is pink beryl. Aquamarine… I’ve also seen it on the bee, also only in its traslucent form. It’s blue beryl. Green beryl is just the most prized and rare type!
