How big are you thinking? I love my ice blue sapphire, but you can look at different ones as well. I am currently obsessed with peacock sapphires. Since they are not the typical blue, you can usually pick them up for a little cheaper. Other than that I also love the colored moissanite stones! If you are looking for a rich blue, I suggest topaz. It comes in all different levels of blue. Good luck and I can’t wait to see it!

Indicolite is a beautiful blue/green.

Depending on the shade of green you prefer, green garnets can be quite nice.

This isn’t my ring but a pic of a ring a bee had made with a cheap ebay Indian mossanite. I love the green and the added sparkle that only a moissanite can provide.

How much do you want to spend? There are a ton of choices, but it makes sense to have an idea of your budget before I recommend anything.

I would look into Australian sapphires. They’re sapphires they’re just a very deep blue. They almost look black or a midnight blue. My engagement ring is sapphire and I believe it’s an Australian sapphire. They’re a lot more affordable for some reason but just as durable.

You can find blue or green moissanites for a decent price on ebay and etsy… there are some sapphires that aren’t too spendy. Spinel is another option and is probably the most affordable out of all I have mentioned here.

I have seen stone that’s called Demantoid, I know nothing about it but it has lot of fire and nice green color. It’s garnet so it’s quite soft stone so maybe less pricy than sapphire and emerald.

lisag103 :  i personally love the shade of blue of blue diamonds, though i think most of the reasonably priced ones are enhanced somehow to get that color

Nancy_c :  Demantoid garnets are the most expensive of all the garnets. The ones from Russia can be over $1000.00 a carat. There are slightly less valuable ones from Madagascar. They are valuable because of the colour, scarcity and as you said, the brilliant fire. I love them but they are not for someone on a budget. Anything over a carat is particularly hard to find and then the price rockets.

 OP if you are on a tighter budget I would go with an Australian sapphire. Parti sapphires are lovely as they are a combo of green/ blue or green/ yellow or all three shades. The other option would be to go with a lab sapphire which are very inexpensive.
