I’ve got no regrets with my rubies/diamonds a-band/e-ring, which was an upgrade. Red is an earth tone and matches or compliments everything. Like ruby red lipstick. Although I can’t wear that color lipstick; I much prefer the mochas and plums.

i have an emerald set in yellow Gold with diamond pave. I sometimes take it off bc its so big people have told me it looks obnoxious. I hate to come off like that but its very classic, I think. I m not wearing today BC emeralds are so soft and they scratch easily… Only reason why I will probably get a moissy solitaire for everyday wear. Here is mine 🙂

I have a emerald cut sapphire with a diamond halo, and I wear it almost every day and have ZERO regrets.  I get so many compliments (both from older women who remember them being popular in the earlier part of the century, and younger women who notice that it’s very different) and it means so much (to me and DH) that I a unique ring that suits me and was picked by DH.

Yipeebee:  Thank you! It was actually pretty affordable. He is very into rocks and gemstones, and spent a lot of time finding the perfect stone. He was able to find the sapphire on ebay for a good price. I wanted platinum because I’m sensitive to nickel, so that increased the cost a bit more than if it were white gold. The tapered  baguettes were the priciest part, I think.

I’ve never wanted a diamond and I still don’t. I have a gorgeous sapphire solitaire e-ring and I couldn’t be happier with it. I pretty much told my husband that if he got me a diamond, he’d be sorry. Okay, I wasn’t THAT dramatic about it, lol. But when we started talking about rings earlier on in our relationship I told him I wasn’t a diamond kinda gal. We customized my whole ring and I’ve had 0 regrets! I don’t even envy other people’s diamonds. I think diamonds are beautiful but just not my personal taste.

My ring is a gorgeous created emerald with inclusions from moissyco and I love it. It’s at the jeweler’s being resized and I can’t wait to get it back.
