- Wedding: April 2013
After hanging around the wedding bee ring board for a while, I have learned a lot more about E-Ring options than I ever knew. I now know about mossainite and Asha, and wonder now when I see young girls if that’s what their rings are. I have also learned about the many styles I never knew of (I knew of three stones, solitaires, and small hallows and that’s all i had seen!). I also have learned a lot more about non-traditional E-Ring options.
I was wondering however, why some women choose lab created stones. I don’t ever mean to offend of course, I am just curious. As someone who looked forward to a diamond her whole life… I never considered much else other than Saphires which I love and are FI’s birth stone. He never even entertained that idea.
I definitely understand those that don’t love or want a diamond. There are many beautiful stones out there… saphires, emeralds, ruby’s… blue topaz, peridot, even things like moonstone and carnelian. Coming from Western NC where there is perhaps a more hippy vibe to thing I’ve always believed in stone meanings, and worn various stones for certain results. Moonstone for example is an incredible stone to wear. I even have friends who have pendulums (stones that would read your energy) and find it very fascinating at marvel that these objects come from the earth.
To Me, I love what nature creates and don’t really understand why lab created stones would be preferable, I’d love to hear thoughts on this!
