This is my first post here, so I apologize if this is a question that’s already been asked. (It probably has, but I couldn’t find it.)
My SO and I have been together for almost 8 years and are finally able to seriously start looking for rings. We’re mostly browsing online for styles since our budget is pretty low- we’re both fairly minimalist so don’t want to spend a crazy amount on a ring, no matter how sentimentally important.
I don’t wear a lot in terms of jewelry, and my everyday rings are a smallish college ring and a claddagh, both with purple stones. For an engagement ring, I’m leaning towards a white stone that isn’t a diamond, for both ethical and financial reasons. If you have a moissanite, white topaz, white sapphire, CZ, or other similar stones, could I see a picture? It’s hard to pick a stone since I can never tell if the seller’s pictures are really accurate.
And in case anyone is curious, for myself I’m leaning towards round cut, shank, possibly bezel and/or halo, 1-3 stones as long as it’s not a simple solitaire or it doesn’t stand too tall. (I put my hands in my pockets/wear gloves a lot, and need something that’s not going to catch on everything.)
Thank you very much!

Here is my 0.8 Carat equivalent moissanite. Round cut, color F, clarity VVS1 set in 14K rose gold. The accent stones are tcw 0.1 moissanite color EF, clarity VVS1. I love my moissy, but in the end its not about the ring, it’s about the love.

I could have written this exact post a few months ago! I had pretty much the same thoughts. The bezel set rings I found at most stores had too high of a setting, so I ended up getting mine custom made. I love the low profile and it’s simplicity.

jessam : this isn’t mine, it’s a ring I helped my friend design for her fiancé. It’s a pear white sapphire in a bezel with a halo of garnets 💚💚💚

hissoon : Your ring is so pretty! My 4 prong setting makes my diamond look cushion… and I’m not a fan of that. I love how your prongs keep the round look of your stone. Absolutely beautiful.
