I’ve never heard of that but it sounds really cool! There are some great gemstone rings on the bee!

My Boyfriend or Best Friend just bought my green amethyst ring. Don’t have any IRL photos yet because he hasn’t proposed.. but here’s the stock photo:

@Stormchild:  Yes it is Gemvara. My Boyfriend or Best Friend says that their customer service is really good! They even sent him a picture of the stone via email. So he sometimes shows the picture to me when he wants to get away with something. “oooo looky! Be nice or you won’t get this!”

I’ve never really been a diamond girl.. so this was perfect πŸ™‚ There are diamond accent stones though… as well as iolite. I was feeling adventurous in my selection. Everyone who I show the design to says it’s very “me”.

My finger is a little small too (not sure what size you are)… I’m a 5 1/2. So we’ll see!

A green moissanite might be a great choice too for those on a tight budget and who want a stone that will be a bit harder than a sapphire (althoigh the are hard too).

I love green amethyst/prasiolite. It also goes by green quartz, just in case you didnt know. My Fiance is getting a green amethyst ring because my e-ring is pink amethyst.

While I was searching for rings for him, I found TONS of beautiful ones. If you want, I can send you some links to them.

My only concern with any quartz based ring is the hardness of the stone. But if you aren’t too hard on jewelry, it would be quite beautiful.

@Stormchild:  I don’t normally post here, but just wanted to log in to comment on the “hardness” question.  I think this has been overblown by the WIC especially with respect to less expensive stones.  I have a topaz ring and have had no problems with scratching, cracking etc.  And you know what?  Even if it happens, it’s not a big deal because I can get another topaz stone for under $50.  Or I can use it as an excuse to get a different color stone altogether.  Green amethyst is way cheaper than diamonds, so I would take a similar point of view on that topic.
