    I think I would pick a natural untreated peach sapphire.

    Yep. It’s fair to say that I’m a cheater and there is no way on earth that that one would cost less than the most flawless 75pt diamond known to man. But, I <3 it.

    MrsSparkleBee13:  Sapphire (along with ruby, emerald and of course diamond) is actually classified as a “precious gemstone” but a natural ceylon sapphire would have been my first choice too.

    For semi-precious, I’d go with an amethyst since purple is my favorite color.

    Yes, even without the setting. That’s a museum-quality stone.

    I love amethysts, too, though and have several. They are a “cardinal stone” but no longer considered “precious.”

    I understand that Brasilian Imperial Topaz could be arguably a precious stone that’s still officially semi-precious. It’s lovely and I’d enjoy one of those as a center stone.

    Morganite! I absolutely love morganites. I definitely want a morganite RHR one day! I almost went with a morganite ring set actually. The only reason I didn’t is because I like to wear my rings 24/7. I love diamonds – so win win! I almost went for a peachy pink sapphire (not semi precious but still). But I only like the pink stones in diamond halos and I really didn’t want to worry about loosing side stones.

    Here are the morganite sets I was seriously considering ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aquamarine, my daughter’s birthstone.

    Something like this:

    MarriedToMyPillow:  OOh… yes, tanzanite is a great one too.  I actually had 2 beautiful tanzanites before that were stolen when my house was broken into.  ๐Ÿ™

    Is sapphire semi-precious? Because I love (blue) sapphires…An opal would be pretty, too.

    I hate my birthstone (peridot), so that’s out, and DH’s birthstone is diamond, so not semi-precious.
