Wow that setting with the rose gold and pink sapphires is stunning!! Its different and amazing. I would def go with that one. But find out what kind of metal she wants first. If she wants something white gold I would go with the far right, I like the pink in that one too!

Seconding PP about the side details. She’s not going to be able to wear a wedding band if you get one of those rings. I know some girls don’t like wearing more than one ring anyway, but it’s something to consider.
Personally, I like the second ring in the last picture, most, but it sounds like you’re pretty sure she’ll like the first one, and that’s what matters! Definitely check around with family and friends, and think about those side details…

I think your explaination of the reason why she would like the rose gold and pink saphires is perfect and I think she would love it! However, I think you should try to fish around and ask her friends and family without giving her ANY hints if that’s the type of style she wants. At the end of the day, she has to wear it every day so getting A LITTLE imput, even if it’s just a small suggestion made by her, in my opinion, is important. Good luck 🙂

I would definitely check with women close to her. Just because she likes the color pink doesn’t mean she’d want it in a stone for her engagement ring. I had my walls painted pink growing up, but I only wanted diamonds in my jewelry. She’s probably mentioned details to someone, so I would try to find out before making any purchases.

The rose gold with the pink sapphires is amazing. Seriously stunning. It will get a lot of attention! Before youmake that purchase though, you should see if they have a wedding band to match. The intricate detail on the side will make it hard if not nearly impossible to find a band. And if you do find a band, they will most likely have to be soldered together so the rings don’t get damaged my rubbing against each other.
You know your love much better than us and it seems like you are putting a ton of thought and effort to make this ring perfect for her. I think if you think she’ll like it, chances are she will!
Good luck!! 🙂

wow thanks for all of the quick and informative replies!
I did not think about the rubbing together of the wedding band with those side stones. Do you think this would be a big issue, or do you know of any way to get away with wearing both rings together and them not rubbing? I am going to ask at the jeweler where I saw this ring and see what they say.
For center stone – I am going with a .54 carat round VS2 hearts & arrows.
Although I described my gf as princessy, she wears almost no jewelry, at least not anything made from gold or diamonds, mostly just bracelets that she makes. So I dont see a problem with matching her other jewelry.
Also one girl that I know who is much more into modern-style jewelry was saying she wouldnt go with rose gold because its too “trendy” and causes alot of problems with matching. My gf and I are a little more old-school and I thought the rose gold would match her style alot better. I dont know anything about rose being too trendy, though, and I dont think I know anyone who is wearing this color.
I will see what I can find out from her friends.

if your Girlfriend makes her own jewelry it says to me she is into arts and crafts, in my experience women who love that love unique things and rose gold would be perfect. I don’t think rose gold is trendy, maybe re-discovered as people are sick of yellow and white, I get sick of it myself lol.
My set is white but I wear alot of rose gold with it elsewhere, doesnt look wierd at all. I don’t get the whole “you have to match” match stuff, surely if your ring is one color gold your not going to restrict your whole jewelry wardrobe to that forever? Seems silly. 🙂

If your gf doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry she may not like a high setting that catches on everything. Take your time to think about what she does with her hands on a daily basis. She may want a low profile or bezel set ring.
With that being said, your choices are beautiful.

How matchy-matchy is your gf? My engagement and wedding rings are rose gold, but matching it with other jewelry is never a concern for me because I’m more of a casual dresser, myself. Doesn’t bother me at all.
It is becoming trendy, but I’m hoping not too quickly! I like having a unique metal myself. 🙂
P.S. Feel free to ask me anything about rose gold.

My engagement ring has side stones and I was a bit concerned about them rubbing against my wedding band. We have now been married for 2 years and I have had no problems with the rubbing.
Here is a picture of my ring to give you an idea of the side stones.

I would go with the one with the pink sapphires! Once you are married, she can get the rings soulderd together and they will not rub.
Rose gold is becoming more popular but it is not considerd to be common yet. And it has just been gaining in popularity within the last few months. Eaither way, Rose Gold is beautiful and looks really good with pink stones.

Thanks for the helpful replies. I talked to the jeweler and they said they do not forsee any problems with the side stones rubbing on the wedding band, and they do free maintenaince and repairs to the rings for life, including stone replacement so if there were any problems with that, they can fix it. They can also sauter the rings together if we want.
They will also do refunds/exchanges if it turns out that my gf has issues with whatever I choose so I am not really worried about there being any problems.

I think the second picture and the ring on the left is beautiful and very princess-like! 🙂
