If you want a sapphire, then please don’t be discouraged because it might look less “engagement ring-like”. I wanted a sapphire, not because we couldn’t afford a diamond, not because I don’t like diamons, not because I wanted to be different, but because it’s what I wanted and I have no regrets. I might get a diamond right-hand-ring one day, because I do also love diamonds, but for my engagement ring I’d have nothing else. 

Here is mine… 

Both of the rings you have chosen are stunning; I prefer the swirl one personally, but that’s because the sapphire would look awesome, if you chose one as a centre stone, and because I was also considering a swirl. 

Good luck making your decision!

I love the sapphires and vintage feel of the first one. It looks very much like an engagement ring!  The second is lovely too, but not as unique as the first one.  Both of your choices are beautiful – congrats and happy choosing.

The second one, for sure. But, that’s just my preference. Go with your heart πŸ™‚

@Epicpooka:  I think they’re both beautiful in their own way, however, you don’t have to pick either! This ring will be something you wear everyday forever, and if you’re getting a chance to pick it, make sure you pick one you love! Keep looking until the right one comes along!

I have a twin sapphires engagement ring in a bypass (aka swirl) style dated from the 1940s-50s, but similar swirl/bypass style has been around since the Victorian era. It’s definitely not too modern!

@Epicpooka:  I’m confused – does it mean you are going with the swirly one or the vintage one? πŸ™‚

@Epicpooka:  The ring I fell in love with in pictures and the one I ended up choosing were totally different too.  Go with the one you actually love in person, not the one you think you should love based on pictures.

@Epicpooka:  You can always get the diamond reset down the road if you decide you don’t love the setting later on.  I say get what you love now!

@Epicpooka:  Lol. The sad fact is, as you and I grow older, our rings will become more and more vintaged, even the modern looking ones Laughing

 

It really sounds like you love the swirl ring. If you are concerned about the modern look, type “Victorian bypass ring” in Google. Here’s one:
