I personally love a colored stone. I have black diamonds and was looking at an aquamarine stone before.  I love the significance of using birthstones as well. I’ll have to hunt up the pic of the one I was looking at though.

ETA- Here we go, this is the one I was looking at.

It would have been all together. I do have a thing about looking for loose stones… but it was just so pretty. I may still get it for a right hand ring…

That setting would look amazing with an Aquamarine in it! Just gorgeous.

I have a coloured gem and I couldn’t be happier with it. I will never “upgrade” because I had my heart set on a green tourmaline in the first place, and that’s what I got!

Go with what makes you happy!

I had originally wanted an aquamarine as an engagement ring!  We didn’t get one because we found a blue diamond we liked better.  When we were looking, we were looking to set an aquamarine into a setting traditionally for diamonds.

Having a colored stone is an interesting experience.  I haven’t gotten any negative comments, although one girl who knew I wanted an aquamarine commented that I would be happier that I got a diamond down the road (wtf??).  Most people who know me know I like to do things a little differently, so I think it was kind of expected that I wouldn’t have a more traditional looking ring.

We seriously considered getting a peridot ring… FI’s birthstone.  Sometimes I wish we had, because I am super into bright colors, but I’m happy with my diamond.  Two of my friends have colored stones and I’ve never heard anyone complain about it.  I think they are stunning, one is pink sapphire and the other is pink topaz i think.  I think it’s a great way to get big bling for your buck.  Aquamarine would be beautiful.

I’m a March baby too! I love this idea, & all the rings posted/ the ones I have seen are very stunning. I have a right-hand aquamarine ring that I’ve gotten from my parents & I love switching hands to see how it would look. That ring looks like this:

And I think it could easily be used for a e-ring.

I have an aquamarine e-ring & I LOVE it! It really has fire to it and often gets mistaken for a diamond.. kinda funny

I have a sapphire engagement ring and love it.  I love sapphires and he is British so it is more traditionally with his heritage.

I don’t regret having a coloured stone at all.  I get a lot of compliments on it.

My fiance surprised me with his great-grandmother’s aquamarine ring as my engagement ring. I absolutely love it.

(The picture shows how he presented it to me: in an oragami flower.)
