Mine is an ice blue sapphire, with a rose gold band and marquise shaped moissanites mounted east-west. The actual mount is a 6-prong white gold setting. I just got it and could not love this ring more!! I helped design it, and when I saw it all together, I gasped!!

Here is mine! It’s a cotton candy amethyst with chocolate diamonds and rose gold. This is the unromantic yet hilarious way in which this became my ring: It was my birthday and he took me out for Indian food. I’d never had Indian food before. Then we went to the mall to meet up with my sister and ended up wandering through a jewelry store. And then I got struck with the worst and most sudden case of food poisoning in the history of the world. It was painful and terrible and, as I was sprinting out of the store to find a bathroom, I saw something sparkling out of the corner of my eye. I stumbled to a stop and stared at it because it was the most beautiful ring I’d ever seen in my life. I’m not really a ring person, and I’d never fallen in love with a ring before. And even in the midst of my food poisoning emergency, I just had to stand there and stare until he came over and I managed to point and moan, “Look at it. Just look at it.” And then I had to finish dashing for the bathroom. I made it, but it was a close one. 

And when I came back, an embarrassing amount of time later, he was still staring at it, and my sister was talking about how much she hated it, and it didn’t even matter because it was still the prettiest ring. So the next morning, when I woke up, I said, “Wow. Remember that ring?” and he said “… Yeah.” And I said, “We should go back. And visit it.” And we did. And the jeweller said, “That’s a nice one. They haven’t made many like it.”

And he said, “We should probably buy it.”

So he did. And then he announced that I had to forget I’d ever seen it because he was not proposing with a ring I knew about because the ring was supposed to be a surprise and if I told anybody about it, he’d never give it to me. And then he told all our friends and family that he picked it out himself and I let him because he’s a hopeless romantic and the food poisoning story would probably ruin the illusion for him.

That’s how you know it’s love. Compromise.

I had my ring re-done and I’m I love it. However, its not getting much love on the bee. It has 3 small diamond on each side ( pretty much hidden by my large stone) and 3 baguettes on each side as well. It is unique and different. Not what most ppl would choose and is not mainstream. This ring is very sentimental to me. At last, here it is:

Mine was never very traditional. I started with a blue diamond solitaire, bought online, so I didn’t get to try it on and didn’t realize how high it sat. Eventually reset into an art deco inspired setting. Love it!

walkerqueen4014 :  I love your ring’s new look – total work of art. It reminds me of something but I can’t put my finger on it. Bold and feminine.

kittykatc :  Here’s my beautiful ring which was created in collaboration between my fiance and my best friend who is a custom jewelry designer. I don’t like diamonds so it is a rainbow moonstone, especially meaningful for us because we witnessed the solar eclipse at an amazing festival together last year and on a trip to peru the same year I purchased a bunch of moonstone. We also are cat lovers and rescue cats together (designer included) so the white-gold setting is a cat sleeping on a tree branch under the moon. I never worried about wanting one of these, ever…but I love it so much.

 this is a terrible Facetime snap of my ring on my fiance’s finger! I haven’t actually gotten it yet, but he was so excited to show me when he chose the center stone. We picked the setting together (hard to see but it’s three little overlapping pave bands) but I was out of town when the jeweler called him about this 2ct cushion cut canary sapphire. I can’t wait to get it! For a wedding band I want to get a yellow sapphire eternity pave band that’s about the same size as the diamond pave in the engagement ring.
