    I definitely like the 2nd one the best. I do not like the setting of the first one, it looks cheap.

    I love all three, but I picked the white saphire for the poll. I would have probably gone with the third for me, because I like thinner bands. Though I’d wear all three of them 🙂

    If you do go with a colorless stone, my vote is for the first one. That being said, I really like the green garnet and I think you should go for it! I have an aquamarine and I’ve never run into problems with it matching what I’m wearing or with people not recognizing that it’s an e-ring.

    I picked the second one because white sapphire is much more durable than white topaz.

    The white sapphire is beautiful and durable, but they tend to get a hazy or oily look to them. Try looking at other white sapphire pictures and make sure its something you could live with! I voted for the green garnet, because it is gorgeous and unique.

    @MrsSnowMountain:  oooo yay for ring piccies! I personally like number 2, the sapphire the most. I love the slightly wider bezel setting, and I also like that the band is slightly slimmer and a bit more elegant than the topaz band. However, I also like the style of the green garnet, it’s a bit more unique, and as you said you probably wouldnt wear it with the band or even at all, maybe just go all guns blazing and get the really unique one to enjoy for a while 🙂 I know what you mean about matching, I’ve always like art deco-y emerald rings, but I used to worry that it wouldn’t go with everything I wear (first world problems, ahem…)  but seriously, if it’s just going to be worn for a year or so why not get something different and interesting and just enjoy it? It would also make a beautiful right hand ring in the future 🙂 

    If it was me, I would honesrtly go for option umber 2 though, just because it’s the ‘safer’ option I suppose, and looks more traditional whilst still having the tree motif that is important to you. Perhaps…..perhaps if the budget allowed….you could get both the sapphire AND the garnet??? Or get the garnet one as a pretty ring for an anniversay gift/birthday treat? Oh god I’m so greedy!

    White sapphire will be the most durable, but I love the color of that garnet, so that’s what I voted for.  Either way, they’re all lovely rings, and you can’t go wrong with any of them.  Btw, have you looked at Bandscapes’ rings on Etsy?  He’s got some gorgeous nature-themed ones.  His delicate leaf ring was a contender of mine for a while.
