I love my sapphire band. I have had it way before Kate got engaged. I realize they are a traditional wedding jewelry stone, but when I first got it no one had a sapphire band and that is what I loved about it. Now, low and behold, they are starting to pop up. I am not a crowd follower but am starting to feel like the crowd is following me. Have you ever felt the same thing with your ring?

@MrsFuzzyFace: Sapphires have been used in wedding jewelry since Queen Victoria, even before. 🙂 It’s classic, that’s why everyone loves it 🙂 And if it makes you feel better, my wedding band (and e-ring) will have no sapphires 🙂

No, mines pretty common so there’d be no point in wishing that. I dont care if a million people had it anyways, I only see mine on my hand and love it all the same.

@love108: I know that they are a traditional wedding jewelry stone but they have re-emerged from near obscurity lately. It is just irritating to do something different because it is different and then have your something different become more common.

Blue is the colour of loyalty and sapphires are the stone for engagement, at least traditionally before Deberes decided it should be diamond. Your ring is beautiful and classic and it doesn’t matter how many other people have sapphires yours is unique to you.
I have sapphires on my wedding band. We didn’t really care what kind of stone it was so long as it was blue. My Fiance origionally proposed with a small piece of blue beach glass, I obviously didn’t want a piece of glass in my ring, but sapphire was the stone that was closest in color to the origional glass and that is why we chose them. But I am aware they have been the classic engagement stone for eons.

Your e-ring is perfect 🙂 I will not be getting saphire band, so no worries on me! hehe.
Plus i don’t really know anyone who has one! Maybe you are just more aware of it now after the super-Kate-ring and notice them more. IMO color bands take attention away from the actual e-ring, and yours is so stunning! I do love sapphires as right-hand rings or really any other jewelry <3

I guess I don’t see why it matters. Love yours, who cares about anyone elses!

I’m not really sure why it bothers you…I seriously doubt that people are trying to copy YOU…they are probably thinking the same thing about every other person who has the same style/color stone/shape/etc
I’ve always tried to find someone with the same ring, but haven’t been able to. No amount of googling will find a person who has the same ring, which is pretty cool, and not something that was intentional.

No it does not bother me. I knew in my heart that my ring was what I have wanted for many years and all I need to know is that my ring is right for me. It is exactly what I wanted and it is unique to me. I’m not trying to be the ONLY one todo anything because, especially in jewelry, your never going to be 100% original.
I’m sure back when marquis were first coming out people thought they were going to be very unique by choosing that stone. Now half the women who got married in the 80’s have them because they were extremely popular. You only have so many cuts to choose from and so many gem stones. There aren’t millions of choices. You just have to be happy with the fact that it’s yours.

I could see how it could be a little frustrating. However, sapphires have been around for a REALLY long time. But, if it makes you feel better, my e-ring and (future) wedding band are sapphire-less, nor do I know anybody who has a sapphire ring. 🙂 You should be flattered! 😉

I suppose I am the opposite of you. I received a sapphire and diamond e-ring after the whole princess kate craze and I sometimes worry that people will think I am copying or trying to be like Kate. I have always loved sapphires and gemstone e-rings so it’s definitely not a trend thing for me but I know some people probably think it is. I just try not to let it bother me. I love my ring and wouldn’t change it for the world so why should I care what others think/do right? 🙂

I don’t think a lot of people have rings similar to mine, but if they want to get a ring as awesome as mine, then good for them! 🙂

I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. Your band still has a fairly unique design, and you’ve said on numerous occasions before that a) you don’t care what anyone else thinks of your ring, and b) you’re not terribly sentimental about jewelry and you’d love to have a whole bunch of engagement/wedding rings to swap out according to your mood, so I think you should take a page from your own book and stop thinking of your ring in terms of what other people have! 🙂

Not in internet world it doesn’t bother me, since internet world has sooo many people on it, but it does sort of irk me IRL I guess.
I was the first of my group to get a halo and now…everyone says, “I want a halo like AmeliaBedelia’s!” I’m like…… Ok. It’s a compliment, I get it, but I do kind of get what you’re saying. I also realize, like you do, that when things come into style we can’t logically be the only ones. Lol.
