I have a white sapphire and I LOVE IT!  I alsAndy not a fan of diamonds, but wanted something light coloseppia be my guy found a gorgeous ring.  The sapphire picks up the rose gold in my band and gives it a lovely blush house in certain lights.  Here’s a pic

Yes, I have a white sapphire.  We were going to get moissanite, but I saw this at Zales, and I fell in love with it!  Originally, it was set in sterling silver, but we had it reset in white gold.

@WillowTreeWade:  I don’t have one, but I recommend looking at Etsy — I know they have popular designers there.

@mrshunnybunches:  Oh wow, I actually had the same ring, as I bought the set for the pendant and earrings for my wedding. I thought I could wear the gorgeous cushion sapphire ring as a placeholder when my ring was away, but I found the sterling silver setting too fragile. The prongs were bending, and I so I returned it. But you had a fantastic idea to reset it in white gold!!! It looks beautiful!

 

Here it is in silver:

I have an art-deco square cluster ring made of white sapphires. When the sapphires come from the jeweler, they look great, shiny and clear. But I find they dirty quite fast, because sapphires have more attraction to oils. You would need to clean it often to keep its luster. Also, I can see through the square sapphire, which I don’t like. In a diamond, the refraction in a good cut will prevent seeing through it. Another difference is that the sapphire mostly has white flashes of light. I prefer the way my diamond ring sparkles, by far. 

My square sapphire ring next to my round diamond ring. Notice how you can see my skin throught the stones…

I have seen some drop dead gorgeous white sapphires here on the bee. I really like the larger stones ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Here is my favorite from another bee, in a Tacori setting. *Love*!

This is my white sapphire engagement ring. I love it! You must know, it doesn’t sparkle quite like a diamond. It doesn’t have the rainbows like a dimond, it is more of a clear sparkle. It is definitely still pretty, but don’t expect it to look exactly like a diamond.

@mrsmay07:  Your black and white ring is Amazing!! Capital A! I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a  black stone band to go with my e-ring and exchange back and forth with my wedding band,and I think your pics have sealed the deal! 

 

As for the OP’s question, I love white sapphires, and while there are some differences between them and diamonds, to the casual observer, I don’t think there would be any real question.
