I have heard of people getting diamonds & sapphires done this way. I think its called peek-a-boo diamond/moraganite or w/e stone you get. Also you will probably more than likely have to have this custom made.

I always wanted to do this with a pink diamond. Sounds like a custom job.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: I have a peek-a-boo pink sapphire in my e-ring, I love it! It sounds like the OP is talking about something actually on the inside of a band so it’s totally hidden?

This is my e-ring side profile, though, and you can’t see the pink stone when you look at it straight on. The peek-a-boo stone works really well for a cathedral set e-ring but I’m not sure if you could do something similar with a plain band.

Depending on the thickness of the band, maybe you could have a small one set on the edge somewhere? If it was a very small stone, maybe it could be set on the edge like the peek-a-boo stone but without the cathedral setting. I’ve never seen one actually on the inside, though. I wonder if it would change the fit of the ring at all. I think it’s a really great idea, though!

You can definitely do it, but it is a custom design job.  I think it would be difficult for you to buy a wedding band, then take it to a jewler to have the stone put in.

Also, I have lots of morganite jewelry, and I must warn you that the pink/peach color is really only visible in larger stones.  If you put in a 2-3 mm morganite on the inside of a ring, it would appear to be almost completely clear.  I have a 5mm round morganite that is almost perfectly clear, with maybe the tiniest bit of blushy pink in low lighting.  Just food for thought, if you really liked the pink!

 

Edit: I usually see it being called a “surprise” stone or diamond.

@KatyElle: @kimbean: Thanks so much! It was a crazy idea I mentioned once and Fiance was an amazing listener and got it custom made. I love my ring but I will say the pink never looks vibrant like in the pic…it gets dirty really easily, particularly on the side that faces my wrist. That might just be something to think about–because it’s so close to your skin, it tends to get dirtier and look duller more quickly. If yours is going to be totally hidden, though, I doubt that would be a huge deal!

My engagement ring and wedding band have a blue sapphire on the inside, it was the designers “something blue” idea.

@MM423: How gorgeous! 

I thought the peek-a-boo could be on the side or inside. I didn’t know though for sure. 😛 lol

I am not sure where they got it done , but I think if you explain to a jeweler that you want a stone embedded on the inside of the band they should be able to let you know if that is something they are personally capable of doing
