I think rare earth gets good ratings. A lot of people also like eidel precious here.

 

Another option for you would be the natural sapphire company.

 

The company my ring came from handles a lot of sapphires too but will likely be out of your price range even with a lab sapphire.

 

Know that sapphires are different from diamonds. A white sapphire will have a blue cast when it sparkles, and will shine differently. Colored sapphires may have some color shift in different light sources as well.

I personally love colored stones. Here is mine she is a color changer typically mostly purples but we get, greens, violets, blues, and sometimes burghundy too!

White sapphire doesn’t look like diamond at all to me. It’s clear, but there the similarities end. If you’re okay with that, you can go ahead with it. If I was looking for a diamondlike thing without the cost of diamond, I’d go with CZ or moissanite. Also, if your halo stones are not diamond, replacing them with diamond will be prohibitively expensive later, and if you change them out anyway the stress on the prongs will make them less secure than the original. So I’d go with a nondiamond prong set center stone (easy to change later) and the final setting you want,  down to actual diamonds. The unfortunate side effect of this is that it will make white sapphire look very dull (like a dirty, oily diamond) by comparison. I like the look on its own in certain styles but I personally would prefer a sparklier stone in a halo.

I have purchased jewelry from AllSapphires on Etsy and had great experiences! Rene is wonderful to work with and ships items quickly. Everything was absolutely stunning. Items range in price and I’m not sure if he’d have exactly what you’re looking for, but its worth a shot.

 

Here’s a link to the Etsy store…

We purchased my engagament ring and are in the process of getting my wedding band made from a seller on etsy.

Her shops are nodeform and nodeform weddings

my e-ring has a citrine stone and my wedding band will have yellow sapphires.

I was thrilled with her work and my biggest concern with the process was possible issues at customs since I am in Canada. Thankfully we had nothing to worry about!

Most Etsy sellers list their warranty information (if they have it) in the “Policies” section on the left side of their shops. I think Rare Earth has a one year warranty.

I would also check out Rosados Box because she has tons of beautiful rings, and many with halos. A lot of her pictures are shown in rose gold, but she offers them all in other golds. She’s also super helpful at answering any questions you may have and does tons of custom work to fit within your budget. Her link is https://www.etsy.com/shop/RosadosBox

We are actually looking at either Ruby or Sapphire for my wedding band. We found some amazing ones at Jared for not too expensive. My engagement ring has a unique band and needed something to stand next to it, the pop of color reallly helps and its gorgeous!

dewingedpixie:  This is really good to know. So white sapphires would be perfect to match with blue ones? I’m going to get a blue/white sapphire ring probably and was worried about the matchiness.

blue nile also has alot of good pink and blue sapphires. My blue sapphire e-ring came from them, and it was a great value, and really sparkly!

 

for a protection plan–look at your home or renters insurance. I added a rider which covers loss and damage for my ring. For a ring appraised at $5K, I pay $5 a month extra for this rider. It’s usually a better value than the warranties from stores.
