I completely second previous poster’s advice to go look at vintage rings. Diamonds have a massive mark up (I say this despite the fact that my e-ring came in a distinctive red and gold box) and a lot of that mark up is scrubbed out once you start looking at vintage rings. I ended up picking out a 1930’s art deco diamond band that was about 20% of the price of my engagement ring but had comparable diamonds in total carat weight. If you get a chance to rock down to chicago, I would check out H. Horowitz (really cheesy website but lovely, lovely people to work with).

I have a pair of white sapphire earrings and white sapphires are just flat looking. They don’t really have any “fire”. It’s also impossible to keep them clean for some reason. They always look dirty even right after I clean them. If you want a clear stone that has sparkle I’d go for a moissy.
