My soon to be fiance and I picked out my ring together. It’s a white gold tapered pave ring with a 1 carat blue sapphire center. We’re currently waiting for it to be made, but I’m just curious as to how it will be received by everyone.
For those who have sapphire rings, do people make rude comments or not think it’s an engagement ring? I’m confident in what I chose and I know I’ll love it, but I know that those who are more traditional will question what I’ve picked.

I don’t have a sapphire engagement ring, but I love them. I don’t see them that often but when I do I absolutely never question whether they’re “real” engagement rings or not – they’re as classic a choice as diamonds (maybe more so), IMO. I love gemstone engagement rings in general, for what it’s worth.

I have a sapphire engagement ring. No one has ever said anything bad about it, at least to my face. Lol. The only comment I have had is someone said it is a dark stone. I said I know I picked it out and that’s why I love it. She wasn’t being mean or anything. I have been engaged for about three months and people didn’t realize I was engaged even though I wear it on my finger every day. I love it and wouldn’t switch it for anything.

I have a peach sapphire engagement ring and I have never received a rude comment. On the contrary, people frequently remark on how pretty and unique my set is.

I have a sapphire e-ring and LOVE it more than anything. I have had a couple odd comments, like “oh… is that your engagement ring?” and “what is it?” but they didn’t bother me. (I’ve also had some comments like “I LOVE your ring, diamonds are so boring and I would never want one for my engagement ring either”). Wear it with pride! 😉

if you want a sapphire solitaire as your engagement ring why would you give a rodent’s recumbent rectum what anyone else on earth thought?

I’ve never had anyone think it wasn’t my engagement ring. Blue sapphires are quite well known as engagement rings (the royal family!?).
I have had people ask if I told my husband that’s what I wanted or if I picked it out myself. I don’t take those as rude comments, just curious because non diamond stones are not the “normal”.

I have a sapphire center stone. A few people did ask what prompted me to choose a sapphire. But I cannot recall anyone slighting it because it is not a diamond or even questioning if it is an engagment ring. There does seem to be a secret club of sapphire ring wearers and we always notice each other and it’s a great conversation starter.
Also, If anyone does questions it, just point out that Sapphires are the traditional stone for engagement dating back to Roman times (blue symbolized fidelity).

I also have a sapphire ring and I’ve never heard any rude comments about it. But my Fiance has told me that his friends told him he’s lucky that I wanted a sapphire because it is so much cheaper than diamonds, which is not true for every case. I’ve also had older women ask me “is that what you young people are doing now? Oh I’m so behind the times” or something like that haha
Overall I’d say no rude comments, but then again I’m an engineer so 95% of my coworkers are male and they could care less about what’s on my finger LOL

If anyone knows anything about gems then they would never question “why” you went with this beautiful option. A natural sapphire is more $$$ than some diamonds. Sapphires represent faithfulness & sincerity in marriage !
my wedding band is sapphire and diamond and it’s mesmerizing LOVE ❤️ all sapphires.

I love having a sapphire ering! I get many compliments on it. No one has EVER shown any negative behavior or made comments that were not 110% positive.

No one has ever questioned whether my sapphire is an engagement ring, they just comment on how nice it is!
A sapphire is actually more traditional than a diamond anyway.

I have a sapphire wedding ring and my original diamond e-ring. I wear the sapphire more than the diamond and no one has ever made any comments. Mostly people are curious as to what the stone is because my sapphire is quite a bit lighter than common sapphires.
