I love the oval one.  The first one is pretty, too, but it seems pretty casual.  The oval one is elegant but still unique and whimsical.

Have you tried contacting the designer to ask about getting a blue sapphire set in one of the other settings?  You could also ask about getting the setting without a center stone and finding your own stone.  Maybe someone in the family has a stone you could use?

I love blue sapphires.  I have them as sidestones in my ring.  But those white sapphires are pretty gorgeous in their own right.

Considering both her style and your budget, you might want to look into rose cut stones.  These stones are flatter than your normal cut, they are flat at the bottom.  It is a beautiful antique look, and you also get more surface area with a lower carat weight (so lower price.)

If I were you, I would contact Kate Szabone about what you are looking for and your budget.  Her stuff is awesome, she has some beautiful work in your budget, and I think probably in your gf’s style: http://www.etsy.com/shop/kateszabone

I love her stuff, though I ended up going with a similar designer who is near me because I wanted to pick out my stone in person.

You might also look into blue diamonds…those are really pretty too!

I really love all the ones you’ve posted! I had been eyeing the twig-like bands for my wedding band choice! Rose gold and blue sapphire are amazing together and I think she will love any of those choices, you know her best!

Bump!

I want to see what you decide on! My Fiance was kind enough to let me choose the ring (he proposed with a dummy ring just for the show I guess lol) and I’m not a diamond girl either. I have a 3 stone with a middle blue sapphire and two white sapphires as side stones. 

Post pics when you find the ring! ๐Ÿ™‚

My jeweler just picked up this design and I know the setting with a .45ct GIA E SI2 diamond is only $1000.  This particular ring is dianty but beautiful, and I saw the diamond when I went with my friend who wanted a radiant cut diamond instead of a round, but maybe for a wedding band you can do sapphire diamond sapphire diamond later on…just to be different.

 

 

if you want to email the people, message me I’ll send you info…they only have a paper catelogue but these photos are from the same casting house my homegirl ordered from.

That mounting may only be $600 with a sapphire though…I guess just choose what color she loves, and this can be rose gold…just don’t have the photo in rose gold.

@stayinganon:  They are both lovely! I understand her hesitation with budget- e-rings and all that can be pricey!! But either way, I’m sure she will love either one! I would try to find out which shape she prefers before finalizing it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Early congratulations!!

It’s so sweet you are working so hard to get it right! I can tell you a major consideration for me was the height of the stone on the ring. I didn’t want it set too high where I would constantly snag it and bang it on stuff. That’s just personal preference, though. Some girls don’t care about that.

@stayinganon:  I LOVE that second one you just posted, with the blue sapphire instead!  I too am “halfway hippy”, and that is definitely something I’d love to wear.  I do like that it’s a little more substantial of a stone than the first one without being tooo big or expensive.
