    I love them.  The e-ring I have picked out has blue sapphires in the band, but can’t convince BF that a white sapphire would be a perfect center stone for the ring.  He’s pretty dead set on a diamond.

    I do have a pair of hand-me-down earrings from my mom that are sapphires (her birthstone), and they’re pretty old, but still look good.  I know she has several pieces of jewelry from my dad w/ sapphires in them, and has had no problems keeping them looking clean and brand new.

    my mom took sapphires from my grandmother’s jewlery and made me a pendant on a pearl necklace for my wedding, it is beautiful.

    I can’t imagine why anyone would hate sapphires! They’re gorgeous! I originally wanted a rich blue sapphire for my engagement ring, but my husband stongly preferred something white instead. I plan on getting a sapphire for my right hand when we have a baby in either blue or purple, depending on the gender. (Not a huge fan of pink)

    I love sapphires because they last, they come in so many different colors and shades, and look great in a variety of cuts.

    I like really big sapphires! My mother has a 5carat Ceylon sapphire ring and it’s such a beautiful ring.  She was willing to let me pick a hand-me-down diamond for my engagement ring, but was unwilling to let me get anywhere near that sapphire, lol! I would love an oval blue sapphire ring on a split shank diamond band. A girl can dream 🙂

    I love sapphires..though I wouldn’t want one as my main stone in my engagement ring. I have a light pink sapphire eternity band I wear on my right hand. I also really love blue sapphires and would love to own one someday.

    I love my sapphire e-ring! I always knew I wanted color but wasn’t sure if diamond or a gem was the way to go. Glad I did a sapphire!

    I love them 🙂 but I’m a little partial with a color changing sapphire engagement ring.

    I love sapphires, especially deep blue ones!  My engagement ring is all diamond, but my wedding band will be a dainty blue sapphire eternity band.  My grandmother who passed away gave me her favorite piece of jewelry, which is a blue sapphire and diamond pendant necklace, and I wear it often in memory of her. I guess they have a double meaning for me 🙂

    My e-ring is a perfect white sapphire, mined in Sri Lanka. I clean it about once a week with a toothbrush and that keeps it just beautiful. I love how sapphires sparkle so brilliantly in indoor light and have a beautiful glow outside. There is really nothing quite like it. I definitely want a pink sapphire someday for my right hand.

    I love sapphires so much. I’ve always wanted something different, and I love the colour variety sapphires offer. Mine is blue:

    Sapphires are awesome!  I wear mine when I shower and never really have to clean it unless I’ve moisturosed my hands or done something messy

    I have a ruby, or red/pink sapphire. I love a coloured stone! My mum had a dark blue sapphire in her original ering, it was almost black.
