I don’t have a solitaire, but a plain shank halo.  I love the colored stone because it’s different than the standard diamond, and mine was a lot cheaper.  It’s a beautiful intense blue that’s a different shade in different lighting.  I also like the little diamond accents which help add a little more oomph to it.  In person, I haven’t seen anyone with a ring like mine.

 I knew that I wanted a vintage art deco ring, and originally fancied an emerald. When we spotted my ring, I just knew it was mine.  

I’ve second guessed myself on almost everything so far (dress, venue, shoes, cake, wedding band) but have never wavered for a moment about my e-ring.

1925 3.5 carat natural cushion sapphire, platinum & diamond setting.

mine is a .58ct AAA yellow sapphire (i guess the “AAA” just means that the color is very saturated, so it appears more orange than yellow).  the details on the sides of the ring are phoenixes (phoenices? lol), so he picked the stone to look like a little bit of fire.  i love it because he designed it for me, to sort of tell my and our story.

Mine is my favorite color. The jeweler did a really good job getting the right hue off of my kinda vague description. Living in Minnesota where we are now on our 8th month of winter (seriously it snowed today, we’re supposed to get 6 inches tonight) the green of the stone looks like something alive when everything around me is dead. I also love how the shape shows off the hue and how it fits my hand. I was really attracted to the antique engraved look, and I really like how the twisted rope design kind of makes an infinity loop, like the ring is tying us together forever. I also like to think of the trellis prongs as a nod to my mother’s ring which is a 3 stone with trellis prongs.
