I say get whatever you love.  It’s not like either of those rings look like they are cheap or poor quality.  They’re also decent sized, so I don’t see wanting to upgrade to a bigger side down the road either.

However, I say this as somebody who is going to get a moissanite.  Inexpensive doesn’t mean bad!

Those are so unique! The first seller may make anothet for you if you ask, if you still like that one better. I don’t think you are short changing yourself at all, as long as you get what you love.

Those are crazy beautiful!

I say it’s a bonus if the ring doesn’t cost you tons of money! Ultimately, the real value is what it symbolizes–and if this ring represents you and your Darling Husband and makes you happy, then that is all that matters.

Have you asked the seller if she could custom make you the sapphire one? I am not a fan of the topaz one. 🙁

I really like the orange sapphire ring.  It’s unique.

@MrsOliveBird:  +1. Try to see if you can something more custom to fit EXACTLY what you want. The price isn’t what determines settling.

I think you shouldn’t worry about the price being too low and just get what you love. This is really important to you and you deserve to get something special and unique, especially with everything you have going on.

Btw I love the first ring. I agree with previous posters, in that you should totally ask the  shop owner if they can make you another ring.

Love the rings. It doesn’t mean he loves you less, or that there is less value of your marriage. Go for it!!

Get what you love! I would make sure it is in solid gold, though, not filled! That might up the price, though, not that that should be a factor!

My Future Sister-In-Law wears a stone like that (whatever the Nov birthstone is) and loves it. I think it is beautiful and looks amazing 10 yeas later. I feel like whatever you want is great, as long as your Fiance agrees. I would have been happy with a simple band, but it was important for Fiance to have a diamond solitare. If your Fiance loves the stone too, go for it. You will never regret it.

I love the bottom one, so pretty! I can’t help but feel that white diamonds are so… well everyone has one, lol. So I think something with color is so pretty and different.

BIG Jewellery Lover here… so let me give you a few tips.

First off… the rings are gorgeous, in part due to the fact that they have unusual stones, shapes and settings (guessing that the pear shaped one is a tropical topaz)

And for that reason alone, I’d be attracted to them as well, and would want to add them to my wardrobe.

The one thing that I would be worried about is from the pics you’ve posted, it appears as if both them are gold wire settings (one in gold gold, and the other in white gold)

And although these setting are visually stunning, they do not wear well over time !!

I say this from experience.  As I have had a Tigers Eye that was set this way.  The wire is meant to be bent into shape by the Jeweller, and so it is fairly malleable and can be EASILY knocked or twisted out of shape accidently by the wearer.

This meant that I one time LOST the original Tigers Eye without being aware of it, I just looked down and saw twisted wire, and an empty spot !!

I was heart-broken

Also the section of the “band” that goes under your finger, can also get worn, twisted, relocated over time with general wear & tear.  It is not uncommon for the ring therefore to end up being uncomfortable, as your skin can get “pinched” between the wire strips.

Personally, I’d be looking for something more durable long wearing for an Engagement Ring (doesn’t fit into the category of “fashion ring” that one wears occassionally) as this is a ring you will wear pretty much all the time.

If you like unusual rings (as I do) then I suggest that you start by looking for a gem / particular stone that catches your eye… and then finding a Jeweller who can make you a more long lasting setting to accomodate it.

Hope this helps,
