y ring set I have now is a natural sapphire and diamond in white gold. I am giving serious thought to a new ring (keeping my old set as well) and fell in love with two rings from BTD. And well, I need some help making up my mind.
The set I have now (I’m a size 9 btw)
First choice is a rose gold halo with a pink sapphire, either a light pink concave cut Avarra sapphire, or a vivid pink H&A cut Avarra sapphire, about an 8mm
I was sold on the rose gold halo, until I got the idea of setting an Amora Gem in the Tiffany Reproduction ring, in a 7mm or 7.5mm

Personally, the only clear e-ring stone I want is a diamond. So if I went for a non-diamond e-ring, I’d pick a colored gemstone and the vivid pink halo in rose is gorgeous. But since your w-band is blue/white, the moissy would go with that better.

i agree with PP… because of what i like, i’d choose a stone that is a diamond or any clear gemstone. but again, that is just my preference!

I was the original owner of that pink sapphire ring. 🙂
I am a lover of pink, so my vote is for a pink sapphire in a rose gold halo.

I love the set you already have…however, if I had to pick another ring it would be the Tiffany one….love solitaires!

I love the set you have already! Or I’d get a bigger blue sapphire

I wouldn’t get an Amora Gem right now because most countries are patent blocked. I’ve also seen a lot of AGs up for sale lately, and recently unhappy customers have surfaced complaining about the lack of fire. With that being said, I do love moissanite and might consider the AG if it wasn’t illegal to purchase until 2015.
I love the pink sapphire with the rose gold halo. That ring is very beautiful!
But… I really, really like the look of your original set! Have you thought about maybe just replacing the center stone to a bigger sapphire?
I think a radiant cut sapphire would be AMAZING for your whole set 🙂

@redheadninja: can’t imagine trading what you have now for any diamond simulant. I second the suggestion to simply get a larger natural sapphire. Your set is lovely!

@redheadninja: That rose gold halo with a light pink sapphire would be so gorgeous! I love your current set, btw!
Will you be wearing your current band with your new ring?
Have fun choosing a ring, bling shopping it the best 🙂

Oh I just love the one you already own. It is so absolutely perfect. I wouldn’t look at anything else. If you are feeling “restless” either of the two you are looking at are nice – I would wear it as a rhr.
I saw a woman wearing set much like the one you already own the other day and loved the look. There is intrigue and drama in blue sapphire/diamond combinations.

Those options you suggested are lovely as cocktail rings. Not sure I can recommend changing out a beautiful natural sapphire for a fake stone. Maybe have your sapphire reset into an intricate diamond halo setting?

I’d go with the solitaire. Mainly because I’m not big fan of pink. Both are pretty though!

You hit the nail on the head when you said “restless”. I’m not really interested in a full time replacement, just something that I can wear every so often to mix things up. I have nerve damage to my right hand, and wearing anything on it is problemmatic, so rhr is out of the question. Which is a bummer :-
My only regret with my orig set is the princess cut of the sapphire. It is such a breath taking color and was spoiled by the princess cut I wanted. After seeing a cushion cut and seeing how much better it plays the color, I wish I went with that.
My band would stay with my orig set, as it was done to be an exact size/ placement match to that ring.
Thank you all so much for the input, my mind is just going crazy over all the options out there.

@redheadninja: i am a huge fan of the AG! And would definitely say get the 7.5 mm stone. It looks most people feel the same way. The AG is not a fake stone like someone said but as we know it’s a wonderful gem of its own. There are people recently who have been unhappy with the amount of fire, especially when comparing it to a moissy. It’s all a matter of personal preference. I personally am very attracted to this stone because of its resemblance to a diamond. One thing I holy dislike about a moissy is it’s disco ball effect, which the AG thankfully does not have. If you do desire brilliant white flashes, and fire comparable to a natural diamond, then I think this gem will be excellent for you. The Tiffany like setting is a classic, and you definitely can’t go wrong with that!
I am a believer that a man or woman should have whatever ring he/she pleases. It doesn’t mean that you like your original engagement ring any less.

@AquariusLove: “The AG is not a fake stone like someone said but as we know it’s a wonderful gem of its own.”
Sorry but the Amora gem is a man made created jewel just as moissanite and CZ are. None of them exist or have ever existed in gem quality in nature. They were all specifically created to be diamond simulants, diamond imitators at a cheaper price.. The PP who called amora a fake is correct.
