    This is my first post here, super exciting! 

    My boyfriend of 6 years and I picked out my engagement ring together a couple of months ago. It’s currently hidden in our house somewhere, so the anticipation is killer. It’s not a diamond, but a pear cut, peach sapphire from eidel precious on etsy. I’ve always loved pears and other fancy shapes! They just really stand out more for me and have great character. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here’s a photo of my ring from the site:

    With the specs you shared, I would go for an oval solitaire! It’s as timeless and elegant as a RB but with a twist that will make it less common than a RB (as you mentioned you were looking for something unique). You will also get more finger coverage than you would with another stone shape.
