@ms.melli:  my husband bought my ring here: http://www.gemvara.com

He was worried about the stone, so the store sent him a couple of options, he took to a jeweller and then decided which one he wanted for my ring. The stone is a pink saphire.

I would buy what you love, from a reputable seller with excellent feedback (if you’re using etsy or ebay) and a liberal return policy.  Once you get the ring, immediately take it to a local jeweller and ask them to verify the stone’s authenticity, the metal purity etc….  It might cost you $35-$50, but then your mind will be at rest.  Also, you’ll have an appraisal in case you ever decide to sell it, or if you need to make an insurance claim (if you rent, check on your tenant’s policy, they ususally have a few thousand dollar’s coverage included at least).

Having said all that, don’t be too concerned about the cost of the ring.  Honestly, citrines run about $5.00 a carat wholesale (yes… you read that right, FIVE DOLLARS) and about $50.00 a carat retail, so they’re not an expensive stone by any means.
