Congrats on your purchase! It’s going to be gorgeous when it’s completed!

 

We bought my engagement ring stone (light pink spinel) from a seller in Thailand as well and I was so nervous but it ended up saving us a bunch of money and is very pretty.

j_bishae :  I went through the same thing as you, where I wanted morganite coloring but something a little harder. I looked at sapphires forever but couldn’t find the right color. My spinel leans towards a lilac pink color but had the same lighter depth of color as I was looking for. It seems the true morganite color can’t be recreated in other stones.

Im excited to see your ring when it’s completed! I love the classic design with a twist for the color. Be sure to post pictures!

 

Here’s my spinel, it’s off being turned into a ring now.

j_bishae :  I bought my yellow sapphire on ebay and I LOVE it!  Where did you order your setting from?  I am leaning toward Jared’s as they said they will match my centerstone in the side stone.  These matched side stones and custom setting are killing me, lol

Beautiful! This is my morganite. The diamond stones in the halo are really bad quality and I want to get them replaced with moissanite eventually. I can’t wait to see your ring!

j_bishae :  Super cool.  I think mine is taking extra long because they have to find a bunch of stones to match the centerstone so that is a whole process.  I am trying to be patient, but it’s waiting is not my strong point.

j_bishae :  thanks! I’m setting it in rose gold. I swore I was a white gold girl but when I tried it on my finger I hated it! I’m having the setting custom made. It will have a plain band with a milgrain halo, and I’m getting two matching bands that have more sparkle to them. 

jgti23 :  I love your band stack!
