    Mine does not have sapphires, but it does contain black diamonds on it. I wanted something unique, and regular ‘white’ diamonds weren’t that unique to me. So I got the best of both worlds:

    @lifegirl:  Yeah they really are. I’m so honored to have them! I also have my grandmother’s pearls to wear on my wedding day and a cameo pin that my mother wore for her wedding that I will pin on my bouquet. So I feel like I will be blessed in my marriage by three generations of women in my family!

    @ponyrider:  Thank you, I’m rather fond of it myself! It’s actually very comfortable. i’ve never worn a ring everyday before, and I’ve been really surprised how comfortable it is.

    I wanted a claddagh, conflict-free, and not a diamond. 🙂

    My first engagement ring was a saphire (same guy different ring :P) and I wanted a saphire because I LOVE saphires and I’m a total motard (it matched is Dress Blues). I felt like the ring represented us because it had a an emerald cut saphire center and a row round saphires on either side of it and a row round diamonds on both sides of the row of saphires. I was VERY young when we got engaged the first time (senior in high school) and we are an interracial couple and so the contrast of the two stones totally reminded me of us! However, we went through a lot of changes as a couple and we ended up getting a different ring. We still have the saphire, but we are a little unsure as to what to do with it.

    @Scintillante:  Thanks! It’s yellow gold. It took me awhile to get used to the gap but now I love it!

    I dunno if it’s true, but I heard sapphires are more rare than diamonds.

    mine is not a sapphire, but it is a ruby. I don’t personally care for diamonds due to the controversy, and because they are a status symbol (of which I do not personaly care about lol)

     

    I asked Fi for something vintage looking and different, he choose a ruby because its his birthstone <3

    I don’t have a saphire find, neither I want one, but I have to say that what stone your e-ring is, it’s yours and your Fiance business and none else! DON’T let anyone tell you what you should or should not get, it’s your e-ring, you are entitled to want what you want an only your Fiance is allowed to have an option (other then yourself).

    Enjoy your saphire ring, and use it with proud, don’t let people get you, just be happy.

    When other people go like: “Why not a solitaire” just say that you like that one better and that’s your choice.

    You have to right to make your own decisions, let say you love one dress, and x goes and say: “Oh that’s not normal you should go with xyz”, are you going to do it? na na

    🙂 The saphire ring IS beautiful, and if YOU like, then that’s you ^^

    @beautifulmama28:  You should get a lot of compliments because it’s a stunning ring! Laughing  I have not seen another one like it!

    I was not asked what I wanted (DH wanted it to be a surprise) and I got a small diamond e-ring.  Had I been asked I would have chosen a gemstone, specifically a blue sapphire.  I love sapphires with diamonds in the same ring.

    I am starting to see more gemstone rings around me, maybe because I am paying attention more, maybe because they, in general, are more affordable than diamonds.  Even though gemstones were the first e-rings, I’m glad to see more and more people picking gemstones.

    I have a sapphire ring as well. My (now) husband wanted me to be in on the ering shopping process (which was fine by me and we both found really fun) and we saw a lot of stones – both sapphires and diamonds. Sapphire is my birthstone and we were both totally open to getting one. I looked at diamonds just in case, but they just weren’t doing it for me. I have a lot of small blue sapphire jewelry already so I wanted something a bit different – so we looked at white, champagne, peach, ice blue, and light green. When I saw a few champagne/peach stones I was hooked. They go with everything, are very unique and STUNNING.

    I’ve had my ring for nearly 2 years and I catch myself staring at it sometimes.

    Go with what you love and you won’t be second guessing your decision later.
