Mine is a sapphire peekaboo. Sometimes you can’t really see the blue in the stones, but other times you can really see it. Our jeweler did use lighter coloured sapphires. I don’t think a ruby would be too dark especially not if you went with a lighter coloured ruby.

Oh and if you go the custom route you should have no problem doing this. My ring is custom and we could have had any stone we wanted put in the peekaboo. There’s actually a sapphire on each side..

@squishee:  Thanks! We went with sapphire because it’s my birthstone. Plus it’s a more traditional engagement stone. Sapphires were common for engagement stones before DeBeers had their whole “A diamond is forever” campaign and they’re a symbol of truth, faithfulness and fidelity. For a wedding band I’m going with a simple channel set band, probably with diamonds either 1/2 or 3/4 the way arounf (I don’t want them to go all the way around so that it can be sized easier). Oh and blue is my favourite colour.

My solitaire has a surprise diamond under the head.  I honestly don’t even think about that little diamond.  I forget it is there.  Here is the worst picture ever of a surprise diamond.  (Surprise!  My ring needs to be clean and photographed in better lighting :))
