What would be your 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th choice for an engagement ring?
And please do tell why?
Of course you can put more choices if you like. And feel free to add images.

3. Purple Sapphire
4. Blue Sapphire
I’m pretty traditional in some ways and it never occurred to me not to get a diamond, after all, they are a girl’s best friend. I prefer the idea of natural stones. But I like a colorless, sparkly stone, so my second choice would be moissanite. After that I’d stick with sapphires, because they’re nice and hard, first purple, because that’s my favorite colored gemstone, then blue, because that’s beautiful too. I don’t feel like white sapphires would sparkle the way I like, but I don’t think I’ve seen any in person.. And a lot of other stones I wouldn’t trust to be durable enough; I’m not the most graceful person.

Diamond, diamond, and diamond. hahaha No, in all seriousness, if I could not have a diamond, I would get a metal band with no stones. I don’t do moissanite for an engagement ring, nor do I go for colored gemstones for something I have to wear every day.

1. moissanite (I debated between colorless or pink)
I’m pretty non traditional, so diamond isn’t even in my top 10

1. quality diamond (couldn’t afford in the size I wanted)
2. moissanite (what I went with)
3. natural opal (which I know would end up ruined with wear and tear)
4. morganite in rose gold (so many lovely morganite rings on this site) OR a purple stone

4. blue sapphire
I like colourless stones for an everyday piece because they go with everything and I’m totally falling for the old commerical trick here but to me, nothing says forever quite like a diamond. I know it’s silly but I can’t help myself. My next choice would be a moissy because they’re colourless and gorgeous. I’m not a big fan if white sapphire or white topaz though, they just don’t seem sparkly enough to me so my next choice would be morganite – I love, love, love the gorgeous soft pink colour. Next choice would be a lovely blue sapphire, they’re absolutely stunning and still quite traditional.

My ideal was diamond with sapphire accents. For rings with 1 stone type
1. Diamond (which I have)
4. Sand. I know, not a stone, but FI gave me rings filled with sand from special places in my life, one of which we share.

1. Diamond (even colored)
2. Sapphire (Clear, blue, then champagne would be my favorites, but any are gorgeous!)
I like natural stones best, hence the choices. Moissys are pretty, but not my thing.

2. Blue Diamond
3. Blue Sapphire
Diamond would always be my first choice because it’s my favorite gemstone and my birthstone. Sapphire is my daughter’s birthstone, and blue is my favorite color. Amethyst is my husband’s birthstone, but it made the number 4 spot because it’s not as hard. I would worry about damaging it, although I have had Amethyst rings that I wore a lot in the past with no problems.

Diamond – I’m rough on my hands & fairly traditional.
Moissanite – Going back to tradition with a clear stone & also durability.
Sapphire – This is the birthstone for the month we got married & I’ve considered getting a an anniversary band in the future to stack with my engagement ring & wedding band with this stone!
Ruby – Ironically enough, this is my husband’s birthstone!
