oooh I have never seen blue moissy! Have you looked at aquamarine? I don’t know how hard the stone is. Maybe you can get the white moissy and then get a sapphire or aquamarine as a right hand ring?

I have a lab-grown diamond. Mine is white, but they come in blue: http://d.neadiamonds.com/blue-diamond

In fact, colored stones are actually easier for them to grow in the labs than colorless (opposite from nature). A few notes on buying a cultured diamond, if you decide to go that route:

1. In the colorless variety, it’s tough to find a stone larger than .5ct. However, I think for colored stones, you can get up to 1.5ct.

2. There tends to be a wait for cultured diamonds because everyone is interested in the technology. So send feelers out and be prepared to sit on your heels for a few weeks. Colorless stones take longer since everyone wants colorless–my guy waited 3 mos.

3. Yes, cultured/lab grown diamonds are diamonds–chemically identical to those found in nature. So if you really like the look of moissanite, this may not be your bag, but just to put it out there as an option.

4. No, they are (unfortunately) not cheaper than natural diamonds.

My engagement ring is an aquamarine! Not moissanite or diamond, but a gorgeous color nonetheless Smile

My ring (which is hiding right now) is a blue diamond.  The color is not totally natural, it was enhanced in a lab, but I love the blue color.  I was actually just looking at a bunch on overstock.com.  Had we not stumbled upon mine by chance, I definitely would have checked out overstock 🙂

I have a blue lab-cultured diamond engagement ring and wedding band from D.NEA! No pictures, unfortunately, but I love my rings.

Another  option for blue diamonds that is less expensive than lab-cultured are treated blue diamonds. These are naturally-grown diamonds that were white when mined, but are treated by radiation to become blue. These tend to be more of a greenish-blue than lab-cultured or natural blue diamonds. I have also read complaints that some treated blue diamonds are on the cloudy/not sparkly side, but I have never seen one in person so I have no idea if that is true. 

FWIW, my lab-cultured blue diamonds are very sparkly. My engagement ring has a light blue center stone and two darker blue side stones, and my wedding band has lighter blue stones. The light blue are like an icy white, and the darker ones are in between the color of an aquamarine and a sapphire (lighter or darker depending on the light).

Hey deathbydesign,

I have blue moissanite in my engagement ring!  I got the ring before Moissanite Co. discontinued this color.  I love your choice of wedding set, by the way.

@Pavillionette:  Beautiful! And I may or may not be saying that because my engagement ring looks an awful lot like yours. 🙂

I have a blue diamond engagement ring!  I only have one yucky cell phone picture, but here it is:

I LOVE that my Fiance picked it out all by himself.  It is so beautiful, especially in sunlight.

I had origionally mentioned how I had wanted an engagement ring with a sapphire because both of our birthdays are in September.  After he proposed, he told me that he looked at sapphire engagement rings but decided on the blue diamond because of the durability.

My wedding ring is a blue diamond and I absolutely LOVE it. I wanted a ring that was a little unique, I did not want one that I had a chance of seeing somebody else wearing also. I had not even considered a blue diamond. To be honest, I was kind of unaware that they even made colored diamonds. My fiance picked it out all by himself. When he proposed he said that it was the color of Bear Lake (where we met, our favorite place, and where we will be getting married!). I think that my diamond is considered to be a “treated” blue diamond- it is a natural diamond, but was white when mined and treated to make it blue. Mine has the somewhat greenish blue color and I think that it is perfect! I think it is a much more unique, eye catching color than your average “blue”. I love everyone’s pictures on here and am glad to see that other women out there think that blue diamonds are as beautiful as I do!

This is my engagement ring. I wanted something different from the usual solitaire, or 3 diamond etc, so we went with a 7 diamond blue & white diamond band!! 

I LOVE IT!!
