Hi Bees! I thought I’d share some pics of my engagement ring (because heck, I’ve got an engagement ring!). I knew off the bat that I didn’t want a diamond, but that I wanted something vintage-styled. I wasn’t big on bright gemstones, either.
I LOVE my ring, and it was a very good price for an engagement ring, too!

It’s BEAUTIFUL!! What type of stone is that?
ETA: My guess is a garnet? I’m admittedly not very knowledgeable when it comes to gemstones…

Thank you all! You sure know how to make a girl feel loved!
It’s a smoky topaz (also known as a smoky quartz). I actually found it very hard to find a white gold ring with this stone, since it is a less expensive gemstone.
I like that the color is neutral and earthy, but that it still has a bit of bling factor. 🙂

@Sunnybrook: Bah. I thought it was a bit too brown to be a garnet. It’s really beautiful though.

I was so going to guess a smoky quartz. I was just swooning over a ring with that gemstone. Congrats, it is beautiful.
