Yay!! The two pics you posted are beautiful. If you don’t want a diamond, I’d personally go with the sapphire idea & not the opal. Opals are gorgeous, but you want something that will last & you can wear everyday. I also love rose gold!! I think peach, champagne, pink & green stones really pop when set in it.

Try the first ring on if you can because I would have the same concerns as you- that the sides would rub my other fingers or that it wouldn’t be comfortable.

Good luck & congrats!

Girl, that first ring is amazing. And I never have ever seen a ring like the second one! What a beautiful color combo!

Call me crazy, but could you get the 1st as an upgraded e-ring and someday get the second as a right hand ring? That way you can have both…or get the 1st as a right hand someday and get the 2nd one as the e-ring. If you have concerns about the 2nd one wrapping around your finger, maybe you could hold off and get it another time? I don’t know how you will pick….which is why I suggested both!

Those rings are seriously gorgeous! I’ve had that exact rose gold one bookmarked on my computer for months and months. As far as rings go, I think sapphire is the way to go. Opal is a notoriously soft gemstone, one reason it’s not most commonly set into rings. They have a porous surface and thus should never be soaked in anything, be it water or jewelry cleaner. Opal is beautiful but possibly more suited to a necklace or something that doesn’t get banged around as much as a ring. 

I recently tried on a ring setting very similar to the first photo you’ve posted. My finger is a size 5 and I personally thought it looked too blingy for me! It sort of overwhelmed my hand. Your best bet may be to stop in a jewelry store and try on something similar (or at least similarly sized), just to get an idea of how you feel about it. 

Best wishes!

@LaraW:  i love the rose gold with that blue-green color…i’m getting an aquamarine RHR in rose gold for just that reason.  the contrast really makes it pop!

they are both beautiful! Do you have a pic of your original ring? Tanzanite is a rare gem stone and they are running out of Tanzanite soon. If I had to choose one between the two you posted, I like the 2nd better, but in white gold.

It looks beautiful! I’m glad you chose that one; I hear that opals aren’t durable enough for everyday wear 🙂
