Go to the store and try some on…that’s how I decided on a pink sapphire ๐Ÿ™‚

Fiance worked with Laurie Sarah Designs to make mine, it’s a natural pink which I recommend. I love mine!

Check out EidelPrecious on Etsy. AMAZING rings, and I’m sure she could find the right color sapphire for you. The prices aren’t too bad, either!

I have a violet sapphire center stone in my engagement ring and my Fiance designed it at The Natural Sapphire Company in NYC. I would say that the most important part of your sapphire selection process is to find the right place to look for them. You have to find out if the store or company has natural, quality sapphires, instead of synthetic stones. I would definitely recommend the Natural Sapphire Company because their sapphires are natural, unheated (which is rare for sapphires) and untreated.

Next, whoever sells you the sapphire should be knowledgable about the stone. They should be able to tell you the cut, clarity, color and carat. The stone should look symmetrical and should have a clarity of Perfection (IF, VVS2), and the color and cut are up to you. I’ve learned that a sapphire that has a color of vivid or intense is the valuable.

I second the idea of walking into a few stores.  I found mine randomly in a local shop.  I didn’t even know that I was into halos or pink sapphires until I saw the combination

@mylittleviolett:  No, that actually isn’t a very good picture of it. I thought it ws pretty in the sun but it didn’t turn out really well. This one is a little better. It’s amazing how much it changes though, it direct sunlight it’s more a light rose color in artificial light it’s more bright and vibrant.

@pumpkinlee:  That is such a pretty pink stone! I like the way the halo makes it stand out!

When you say “light pink”, what does that mean?  Personally we vetoed the pink sapphire only because sometimes its more “cool” toned (purplish) and I prefer peachy toned.  But I agree with PP that you should go talk to them at a store!  You can always use the information they give you elsewhere, such as online at naturalsapphirecompany or etsy.

Pink rings are to die for!  Goodluck and make sure to post pictures when you get it!

You basically described my ring to a T! However mine is not an engagement ring. I bought it at Peoples (in Canada). It is a pink saphire in the middle, white saphires on the halo, and diamonds on the band.

Here’s a picture! (The white saphires are a lot whiter than they appear in this picture)

What is “quality” to you? If you are looking for something that is clear and well-cut in the color you are looking for, you may want to consider looking into lab-created stones. They tend to get talked-down about, but they’re the same composition and they’re often able to achieve better color and clarity at a fraction of the cost. However, for some people it is important for the stone to be natural (and more valuable) so lab-created isn’t for everyone.

If you are interested in lab-created, has light pink sapphire:
