It’s not my engagement ring, but I have a lapis ring that is like this. I thought I had pictures of it, but I can’t find them on my computer. =(

EDIT TO ADD: Oh! Wait! I think I have an amber ring (also a RHR) that fits this description, too.

pmaliz:  Almost any jewelry store should have or be able to get you a cabochon. Depending on the setting they can be charmingly old-fashioned, or ultra modern looking. What stone are you thinking of? Garnets make beautiful cabs. I’m sure you’ll find something perfect for your engagement ring.

majorairhead:  Beautiful amethyst! Your post made me realize that my promise ring was also a cabochon. It’s amethyst, too — but heart-shaped.

My cousin’s soon-to-be-wife does! It’s a gorgeous pink sapphire with a star. I didn’t think I liked cabochons until I saw hers.

I don’t have a picture unfortunately.

I guess this also counts as a cobachon – it belonged to my aunt. It is a yellow opal in a very unique crown setting.

ariaK:  Wowza! I love that — both the stone and the setting. My aunt and uncle have matching star sapphire rings, and I’ve always thought they were so unique and beautiful. What an amazing find!

pmaliz:  Here’s a picture of my promise ring. I think it counts as a cabochon, even though it’s heart-shaped. It’s an amethyst. I don’t have a good picture of it on my finger — sorry.

ariaK:  I saw your setting with the ceylon sapphire on another thread. It is AMAZING!! I think the ceylon suits the setting perfectly. Beautiful change and choice! But I do agree that star sapphires are beautiful. Now I’m wanting to find one for myself. Ha, ha!

longtimemrs:  It’s a tourmaline.  “”LOVE””.  It’s been my screensaver for months!  I’ve been a fan of cabochons for years, they’re so classy and unusual.
