Katie_Soo:  I think it’s stunning and romantic! However, I would stick with the sapphire. I knew a woman who had a tanzanite e-ring and the stone had to be re-cut 2 or 3x. AFAIU, It’s not a daily wear stone.

Katie_Soo:  If it’s your dream ring it’s great. End of story. The only person who has to love it is you.

Personally I don’t care for it–I find it kind of gaudy and cheap-looking. But you are the only one who needs to love it! If this is the ring for you, then get it. Life is too short to worry about what other people think, because people will ALWAYS have their opinions no matter what ring you choose. Go for it!

It’s not my style in any way (blingy, big central stone, heart shaped etc – I feel a similar way about big solitaires) but tgere are a few things that come to mind. 

1 if you love it that’s what matters

2 will you still love it in 15-20 years time? There’s a lot to be said for something timeless (I don’t mean traditional here. Just any design that wouldn’t seem odd later) 

3 it doesn’t matter what other people say 

4 if you’re going to be bothered forever about what people think then maybe tone it town. you shouldnt have to but if you do care then that woukd be my advice

I honestly think it’s beautiful!  I will say that I used to have a non-traditional ring, and at first I liked it, but I did deep down want a diamond.  You will have a lot of people ask if it’s an engagement ring, but people can be judgy.  What matters is if you like it.  Do you have a certain price range, or do you just really want a saphire?

Katie_Soo:  I personally don’t like it, but I’ve always hated heart shaped anything. But whatever we think (positive or negative) doesn’t matter. If it’s what you’ve always dreamed of and makes you happy, then it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. 

So my vote is for me no, but for you yes 🙂

I don’t have much opinion on rings, but I was once acquainted with a jeweler who did call heart shaped jewelry “tacky”. But honestly, who cares? (a) That guy was a jerk, and (b) everything is tacky, seriously everything. All this wedding crap that we obsess over while planning our nuptuals (BUT I LOVE IT). There’s always the haters.

as u can already see There are PLENTY of other bees that didn’t go the traditional route! I say let those people think what they want,let them have their concerns about ur ring. The ring is gorgeous! And it says YOU not them.

What pretty much everyone has said – there will always be people who are rude about your choice of ring – espeically if it’s not a big shiny (boring, in my opinion) diamond.  I have an aquamarine – not heart-cut, just pplain old oval and I had quite a lot of sniffy “so it’s not a diamond?” comments.  You’ll probably get a lot of “oh, heart shaped”.  YES, HOW PERCEPTIVE OF YOU.

If you love it, get it.

If it makes you swoon when you see it, buy it! You are the one who has to look at it everyday, you wanna see it and feel butterflies, not regret that you conformed to other peoples wishes.

Plus you migh not have to wear it for 20-40-60 years, there are always those lovely anniversary presents!

I love sapphires. And you said it’s your dream ring, I say go for It! Jewelry, especially rings, is for us to enjoy, no one else. 

Also a little story about me following others’ advice. When choosing my upgrade, I asked a coworker, my husband and my grown daughter for advice. They didn’t like my choice, so I went with theirs. Big mistake. Two years later, I finally changed again and went with my first choice as I should’ve in the first place as it just spoke to me and I am the only one wearing and looking at it every single day. 

Good luck and congrats!!

I mean this in the nicest way possible, but you look pretty young in your picture and I have a strong feeling your tastes in jewelry will change within the next 10-20 years.  I agree with those saying that it’s ultimately up to you, but remember this isn’t just a ring that you would wear occasionally; this is a ring that you would hopefully wear for life.  I’m not trying to talk you out of this one, but when you’re 40, 50 years old do you think you would be happy with your 20-something self for choosing a ring because it looked like the necklace from Titanic?  Again, I’m not trying to be mean here, but I think do you really need to think of yourself in 20 years and ask yourself if you would still love it then.  I say this as someone whose jewelry tastes HAVE changed in the past 10 years (I am 27 now) and I wouldn’t want you to purchase a crazy expensive ring only to not like it in 5-10 years.
