Hey there Bees,
This is my first posting, and I wanted it to be about Pink Sapphire proposals… i.e the ring. My fiance and I are currently in the process of creating a custom made pink sapphire engagement ring. We have currently bought the stone (which was more costly than I had anticipated) and now we are searching for the right setting for a cushion cute, medium/vivd pink stone. I have in mind a high-set, emerald-shaped double-halo setting, with an eterity band. Going through this process has been much more intimidating than I originally thought. I figured, hey, picking out dimonds and stones should be pretty fun and easy. Now I am realizing the depth of this decision and have find myself on plenty of wedding boards and re-thinking my sapphire choice. Would a diamond have been more classic? go with everything? does it even look like an engagement ring? These are all questions that have gone through my mind. My question to the community is this: Has you pink-sapphire ring outgrown your taste? I know these things are more than just “taste” but, you knw what I mean… i hope lol. Please feel free to share pictues of your pink sapphire or colored engagement rings.
The pictures here are NOT my engagement ring but rather the model I am using to have it custom made.

I don’t have a pink sapphire, but I think they’re beautiful! Whenever you go for something other than a very “classic” design like a round diamond solitaire, I think you do risk that it will go out of fashion or that your tastes will change moreso than with a simpler design. But I don’t think that should stop you if you love it now. Tastes change regardless, and fashions change regardless, and you can always switch it out, reset it, or chose to wear just your wedding band. And if you hang onto it long enough, it will be “vintage” eventually and come back into style! I doubt if women who got art deco e-rings in the 20s/30s worried about them being too trendy and going out of style.

I was going to get a pink but ended up with a natural blue sapphire. No matter what you get, your “taste” may change over the next 50 years. You may love it always, you may want to change it up. Either one is fine.
I’m not a fan of that first model.
In general I’m not a fan of double halos either, but done right, could be beautiful like the last two photos. rose gold looks amazing with pink stones.
I would only caution with eternity bands because they’d be difficult to resize if needed.

What will your ring actually look like? I personally am not a fan of mixed metals on a single ring, but that is a very personal choice! (On the contrary, I LOVE mixed metals if they are two separate rings)
I like the head more on the first photo, but that simple band of the second photo. Eternity bands are tough to resize if you were to need to change it at some point.
Will you actually have a small halo of small pink stones set in rose gold? Are you going with white gold?
Morganite and sapphire are starting to see more love, and I LOVE that! I think your ring will be beautiful, and I personally don’t see it “going out of trend’. If it’s what you want, you will love it! A lot of older people I know with the big gaudy rings from the 80’s couldn’t care less if their ring is “out of style”, they still love it!
However, if down the road you don’t feel the spark anymore, you can always upgrade your center stone, and repurpose your beautiful sapphire!

I have a blue sapphire. I absolutely love pink sapphire engagement rings. I love a small halo, but I do think the double halo is too much and takes away from the beauty of the sapphire.

My fiancé gave me a peach cushion cut morganite surrounded by white/chocolate diamonds and I had several of your worries but when I finally got it back from being resized all fears were gone. I am sooo in love with my ring and I love the fact it’s so different and stunning. I like the setting of the ring in the second pic you posted and I’m positive you’ll love your ring once it’s completed.

Mine has pink sapphire side stones. I adore it. It was custom made by my fiancés uncle who is a jeweller. I love the idea of the centre stone being a pink sapphire as well!
