I wish I had a lilac sapphire!! So pretty. I told my hubbo I didn’t want a diamond ring, meaning I wanted a gem of some sort, but he assumed it was an ethics thing and got me a moissanite, hahaha. Oh well. I think people who would make ANY kind of rude comment about someone else’s gift has such bad manners and judgment that their comment meaningless anyway.

Gorgeous ring! I had regret with mine after I bought it, but only because it had no meaning behind it (that represented us). I’ve never wanted a diamond though. They’re beautiful, but just not my thing. I did give it a lot of thought though and considered it. I’m having a new ring made in swiss blue topaz and it’s everything and more and it’s beyond non traditional, lol.

I got engaged with a diamond ring. However I love the look of morganite and blue & pink sapphires too; had Fiance chosen that style of ring for me, I would have been just as trilled. I love my diamond and i think that is what is most imporrant: loving your ring. If you genuinely love something, you tend to regret it less and peoples opinions also matter less.

I absolutely love my sapphire and wouldn’t change it for anything but I’ve had a very small number of people look at it and say something like ‘oh… That doesnt look like an engagement ring…why didn’t he get you a diamond?’ Which is irritating! My fiance got me a sapphire because he knew I would want something different and a bit more unique than a diamond so it annoys me when people act like he cheaped out or didn’t think I was worth a diamond. I would never change mine in a million years!

I love your ring- its very unique and pretty!!! My husband initially wanted to buy me a diamond but I was adament about a sapphire and I dont regret it at all!!! I wanted a conflict free ring- that is such an important issue!!! I know you can get conflict free diamonds but there is just something about a gorgeous sapphire that I fall in love with everytime 🙂

No regrets here. I wouldn’t trade my sapphire and emerald rings for a diamond ring (and to some people, they have the additional “downside” of being lab-created as opposed to being mined). They’re my rings, not theirs, so why would their opinions matter?

PS. Your ring is gorgeous

Your ring is beautiful!!  I was leaning toward a lilac sapphire until we found out there was a family stone we could use (happened to be a diamond).  LOVE the colors in your ring!
