@MrsVanilla:  This. And honestly I love Heidi’s ring. That’s the only nice thing she got out of that relationship with that douchebag of a husband. With that said I love gemstones in erings. I wish I could convince my SO to go that route as I would love to have a blue topaz ring. But since that’s a no go, we’re going to go with moissanite. Diamonds don’t make a relationship any stronger or committed, because when it comes down to it all that matters is that two people are happy, in love, and committed to each other.

You know who says that e rings have to be gold and diamonds? The jewelry industry. My ring is silver with a blue topaz and I adore it. People need to lay off and mind their own business.

i like this thread.  i agree with just about everything everyone has said.  my first ering was a diamond, my ering now is a sapphire.  neither are big, and both were carefully thought out and given with all the love each of my men have in their hearts.  i couldn’t ask for a better gift than that, and how lucky am i to have the love of both of them, for all that the first no longer resides in this plane of existence?

I don’t have to specify or explain anything to anyone and I don’t expect anyone else to either.  The whole idea is asinine.

Hers is one of the few celebrity rings that I actually like. No one should ever have to justify or explain a ring, or lack-there-of.
