Mine is a blue diamond. Yes, the diamond is treated with heat to bring out the blue color, but mine is not lab created, it is a real diamond, just not naturally blue. I got mine at Helzberg. I would have been happy with a sapphire as well, since that is my birthstone.

They will grade color treated diamonds, but not clarity enhanced, and many times they go hand in hand.
What is your budget? You may be able to get something that is natural and graded for less than you think, since diamond prices have droppped so much. You won’t get the same color saturation, however, without spending a lot.
For instance this one (which is sold) looks very blue, and is a reasonable price. http://www.diamondsbylauren.com/index.php/jewelry/loose-green-diamond-101ct-light-green-si1-cushion-cut-diamond-gia-r6744 If you contact them, they will work with your budget to try to find you something you will like. I do not believe they sell any treated diamonds, however.
There are lab created diamonds that are real diamonds.

This is my ring! I love it! The halo is sapphires and the center is a diamond! I love colored engagement rings, I’m sure he’ll get you something you love!

You can get a GIA blue diamond. It would have to be a natural blue diamond to be GIA graded as the GIA does not grade enhanced colored diamonds.
Natural colored diamonds are more expensive than their colorless counterparts. However, colored treated diamonds are cheaper than their colorless counterparts and are real diamonds as well. My own engagement ring is a colored treated black diamond and it has held up perfectly for the past four years.

I have a treated blue diamond. I absolutely love the teal/blue colour.

Thank you! I couldn’t agree more 😉 That said, zircons *are* softer than diamonds or sapphires…BUT honestly it’s so beautiful that I don’t care. Plus, this (newish to me) ring is 25 years old and my jeweler says the edges on the cuts are still perfect. So re:zircons…YMMV.

thank you so much for all your advice!!! I will definitelu encourage the SO to have a look at those jewellers 😍
Ooooh that is gorgeous!! I love how you have made the halo something slightly unusual ❤
That is worth knowing too. I have to admit to being 😍 over the colour of the treated ones.
Oh wowwwww. That is STUNNING!! 😭😭 I want it!!! 😍😍❤❤

My FSIL’s engagement ring is from Gemvara. It’s similar to the Flora ring you posted, I believe it’s called Ivy something? It has the diamonds on the band but has a round centre stone with six prongs instead (a London Blue Topaz). It is amazing. When I see her I’m forever staring at her finger because it’s beautiful. I have a thing for teal stones too…
