Hi to all my gemstone bees out there!
I just wanted to show love to all of our colored beauties with a thread where you can post your specs & pics! Also, out of curiosity, your country. I’m from the US and it’s very rare that I see other gemstone erings, but when I do I get very excited! Here’s mine.
1.17 ct. natural, untreated peach sapphire from Madagascar.

Damnnnnnnnnn, I love it!!!! Your sapphire is stunning. More pics please.
Here is my morganite and many tiny diamonds in rose gold. Not an Ering.

I have a 1 ct equivalent blue sapphire. I don’t actually know anything about it beyond that but I love it! I’m in the US too and the only other people I know with gemstone engagement rings are my aunt (she’s actually British though and has a ruby) and my SIL picked a sapphire as well!

I don’t really see gemstone rings often either and I’m from the US. .75 ice blue sapphire. One of the things I love about colored stones is that they take on different personalities. Today she is positively glowing ❤️✨

😍 I LOVE morganite
such a pretty blue!
I totally agree. I love seeing all the different hues come out throughout my day as the lighting changes.

Here is my .75 equivalent Chatham lab-created ruby. I am working in a place right now where quite a few of my co workers have gemstones, although I’m not sure I’ve ever met someone else with a ruby. When I got my ring, I’m not sure I had ever seen anyone with a gemstone ring!

I’m from the US and have a sapphire engagement ring. Don’t know too much detail wise. It’s about a 0.5 ct equivalent, naturally mined sapphire from Montana. There’s a crack down the middle of it (which I can never photograph) but it’s my favorite part of it.
I love all these gemstones on here 😀

I’ve never heard of Montana Sapphires before the bee. My sister’s SIL just got one too and it is stunning. What made you choose a Montana sapphire?
Yay team peach! The gold really compliments the hues of your stone. I’m surprised by the number of shades of peach that sapphires can take. FH looked at hundreds of sapphires before choosing mine.
what a romantic stone choice for an ering ❤️

0.75-ish carat green sapphire! White sapphires on the band. don’t know anything else, other than it has a little chip hidden by the bezel. We got it from a local jeweller and I loved it, so didn’t ask questions lol. I’m Canadian!
I didn’t even know sapphires came in so many colours until relatively recently, but these peachy ones are beyond gorgeous!

My fiancé chose the ring, including the sapphire. I told him that I didn’t want a diamond for ethical reasons. The jeweler told him it was from there, so we believe all the negative politics were taken out of it.

I wanted my birthstone – not a fan of diamonds and the markup (if anything, I’d go with a moissanite). I also love the Diana/Kate ring. I picked it out after he proposed with a simpler ring 🙂
Lab sapphire, white sapphire halo, white gold, size 5.25, 10mm with halo

What a great blue! My birthstone is a sapphire as well 🙂

2ct equivalent emerald cut emerald with baguette side stones. It was one of 500 made. I love that you can see the inclusions in the sun because it gives it so much character. Emerald is my birthstone and my favorite stone. I would’ve been happy with a diamond, but I wanted something different and I was willing to take on the “high maintenance” nature of an emerald. I’m glad gemstones are making more of an appearance in the e-ring world as color is always a good thing! I know one person with a blue sapphire, my cousin has a morganite and my cousin-in-law has a lavender sapphire.

Your ring looks regal, I love it! I also like how inclusions in gems are IMO less of a big deal than they are in diamons. You’re right, it gives the stone character.
