    <—- My e-ring is my avatar.

    A yellow sapphire ring with a double halo of yellow sapphires and diamonds.

    The color of the clothing I wear wasn’t even a consideration when debating what color stone I was going to get. I knew that I LOVED yellow sapphires and that was it.

    There’s really no need to be THAT coordinated in the big scheme of things.

    I have a blue diamond, and honestly, I never worried about the stone matching any of my clothing.  I absolutely love the ring my Fiance chose, and in my own mind (though I might be a bit crazy…), I like to think that everything I wear enhances the blue of the stone, not clashes with it.

    I have a center diamond with two sapphire sidestones and I’ve never given a thought to how it matches.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE my ring and couldn’t care less!!!

     

    Although…. lol, now that I think about it, I do tend to wear a lot of blue… so it works out!

    My stone is a tsavorite garnet (it’s emerald green) and I have never thought twice about it matching what I’m wearing. It’s just my ring!

    My wedding band has some emeralds in it, and I didn’t worry about clothing when I chose it.  I figure my ring is my ring.

    Hahaha. I TOTALLY hear you. I have a lilac sapphire and was concerned about being able to wear red with it. I have some really smokin’ red dresses that I love. Lol. The first few weeks that I had my ring I will confess to trying to match my outfits with it which, in retrospect, is kind of hilarious. Needless to say I still wear red sometimes, and it doesn’t clash THAT badly… not to mention I’m pretty sure little neurotic me is the only one who would ever notice that anyways.

    I don’t think matching it with your general wardrobe palate is crazy though. I wear a lot of pastels and greys so it works out perfectly and I think as an adult you know which colours you are more bound to wear. If you wear a lot of warm bright colours then power to you girl! Yellow stones are stunning!

    Okay, I had a three stone ring with diamonds and rubies.  (Diamond in the middle, two rubies flanking it).  I wore it for 6 years before getting my upgrade ring.  Honestly, yes, sometimes the rubies bothered me.  I think more subtle colors would blend in, blue or yellow or even pink, but my stones were a bright blood red color.  It felt odd sometimes wearing it with pink, or whatever.   I do love the flash of color though, and miss it sometimes!

    Nope! I never really cared if it matched all my clothes. I have been a fan of black diamonds for awhile. I got a black diamond with white diamonds on the band though so the ring matches everything I wear really. I admire the ring most of all cuz of what it symbolizes between my Fiance and I and that it’s a gift from him.

    @LaurenK0105: Would you consider a yellow sapphire? Citrine and topaz tend to be very fragile, so for an every day ering it might not be ideal.

    I have a light blue sapphire and I never even thought to match it to my clothes. I don’t think people would be like, OMG, her ring doesn’t match her dress ahahaha. It just seems silly to me, get whatever you want!!

    I have a light blue sapphire too and it “matches” everything.  Even if it didn’t I wouldn’t worry about it:)

    I have a moissanite e-ring and a diamond wedding band but I wear a CZ sapphire birthstone ring and a CZ peridot birthstone ring stacked with my set (I’ve posted quite a few pictures you’ve probably seen it).  The colored rings don’t bother me at all but I’m not sure if I could have made the commitment to a colored gemstone e-ring.  I like having the set I have because if I really feel it doesn’t match what I’m wearing then I could just wear my wedding band and e-ring.  

    If I did get a colored stone e-ring I would have either gone with blue (dark blue sapphire) or green because they are both neutrals and go with just about everything. A yellow or bright red stone might stand out a bit more.

    I have an amethyst but I wear a ton of black,white and grey so it always “goes” with my outfit.

    I’m more worried about nail polish, tbh. I used to love wearing bright neon polish but it just looks weird against my pale purple stone.
