I have an ice blue sapphire and I love it! I’ve only had it for like 6mos, but I still love it! No one thinks its fake or anything other than a beautiful engagement ring! I have a frend who has a champagne sapphire that she’s loved for 3 years. Still says she wouldn’t change a thing!

As for your ring, personally I prefer the second video. Smaller halo. Either way, get what you want and enjoy it!

I’ve had my sapphire since 2006 (I think) and at that time I didn’t know anyone else with a non diamond e ring. I was always happy to tell people it was a sapphire when they asked, I think many people were not aware they come in other colors besides blue. I don’t have any regrets, although my setting is more plain. I love all your choices though. I think you should get what you love and not care what others think. Some people might not like colored stones or halos in an e ring but that’s life. Different strokes and all πŸ™‚

Here’s my pinky peach

Julia B’s jewelry is what sealed my desire for a sapphire engagement ring πŸ™‚ She has some beautiful stones and designs. I loved the lavender/violet rings you posted when I was looking. Ultimately, I went with James Allen (bc I found my dream stone at a great price), but I know I wouldn’t have had any regrets if I’d gone with one of hers that I loved. 

My sapphire is a lighter blue that is more purple inside & bright blue outside. It has similar coloring to a tanzanite. It’s my absolute favorite color, and I have zero regrets going this route.

I ADORE my sapphire ring (it’s a periwinkle color and the lavender tones really show up beautifully, depending on the light). I’ve had it since 2014, and have only ever gotten compliments on it (I don’t really have the kind of temperament that encourages people to poopoo my choices, though, so if anyone had other things to say, I haven’t ever heard them). The only bummer for me has ever been the fact that sapphires pick up oils really quickly, but I got an ultrasonic cleaner and just drop my ring in there when I get in the shower and that has addressed that issue.

As for your potential rings- I’d vote #1 or #3. Ring #2 is pretty but it looks like the color is so light that it’s washed out so I’d pass on that one.

I have a super dark sapphire that almost looks black. It doesn’t “sparkle” like lighter sapphires but I really like black so it fits me perfectly. 

I agree with PP that the second video with a smaller halo looks more like a traditional ering and would less likely get mistaken for a cocktail ring. 

Personally, I love having a sapphire ring and I love how unique it is. Even with Princess Diana/Princess Kate, there still aren’t a TON of sapphires you see. I think I only know one other person in real life that has a sapphire ering. 

Sapphires are great because they’re hardy enough for everyday wear but they can be super affordable too.

I love sapphires and if you miss the diamond sparkle, you can add a halo or have diamonds on the shank.

I think sapphires are super classy as an engagement ring. I would never think anything negative about it. To be honest, I am a bit judgmental when I see a sapphire ring, but in a positive way. I judge people with sapphires as having great style and more of an easygoing and unique personality because the ring is not your average diamond.

I love my sapphire ring! I was deadset on having something different from a diamond. I have never received negative comments or judgments about my ring, and I often get comments on how beautiful and unique it is. I actually know several girls with diamonds who wish they had chosen something more unique. Whichever colour you choose, I’m sure it will be beautiful!
