@mrsmay07   Wow, good eye!  I love those Tacori rings, I’ve got one from Overstock and it still looks amazing after 2 years.

@Kaitykait23  They would have found something to moan about, even if it was flawless.

I don’t understand why women insist on being that way toward other women.

I like it and I love sapphires. They have an allure and a certain mystery because they don’t “give up” as much as a diamond does. Seems like I find something new about my sapphire…some new facet and some new way it teases in the light.

Don’t listen to them…you love your ring, right? 🙂

I agree with everyone else, it’s gorgeous!! and if you love it, then who cares what people say!  🙂  Even being white sapphire, I bet it sparkles like crazy.  I had a princess cut white sapphire and it was really pretty.

Hi Ladies Cool.  I just have to put my two cents in here about the unbeeelievably beeeeautiful white sapphire.  I recently got engaged and like many, I didn’t want a diamond for obvious reasons (blood diamond, insanely inflated prices…they’ve been done to death) so I told my guy to get me a white sapphire after LOTS of researching. I have a 1.25 carat round brilliant cut white sapphire on a plain 14kt white gold band, and it’s simply gorgeous. I have had many many compliments on it. I’m rambling…..sorry.

Bottom line:  they are extremely sparkly with rainbows of white, light blue, and yellow in incandecent light and natural sun light.  They are NOT flat or cloudy, and they have fantastic depth. And my jewelry guy said that regular cleaning will keep it looking sparkly for life.  I am so picky about jewelry it would make you laugh for days, and I totally approve.  Happy ring shopping!!

@Kaitykait23  I think your ring is beautiful! To be quite honest.

I know this is old, but this is the first time I’ve seen it, so wanted to add $.02.

My opinion on white sapphires is they are a beautiful gemstone. My opinion on the ring  is…. I agree with the co-workers.

It’s not jealousy. Sometimes the truth hurts. A white sapphire is a beautiful gemstone in its own right, but they don’t look like diamonds. The bigger it gets, the less it looks like a diamond. I love gemstone engagement rings and have no problem with diamond simulants either. But since most engagement rings are diamonds, and a lot of people aren’t even aware that white sapphires exist (much less have seen one in person), many many people who see a large white sapphire engagement ring are going to immediately assume it’s a fake diamond. It might be rude to say it looks fake, but it’s not jealousy. That kind of doesn’t even make sense — why would anyone be jealous of a fake-looking ring?

Here’s what it should come down to for the OP: If she bought the ring because she loves it, she should just tell people “well I love my sapphire engagement ring and your opinion doesn’t matter.” If she bought it because she wanted people to think she had a big honkin diamond, it didn’t work.

I also have a white sapphire engagement ring, with a substantial stone as well (7mm/1.6ct). I love it for all the physical things that sets it apart from diamonds and simulants, especially its tendency to glow and the lilac-blue hue it takes on in most lighting conditions. I don’t think it looks anything like a diamond because it simply plays with light differently. Despite common belief, it also sparkles like crazy! Just in white and blue as opposed to throwing rainbows.

I’m very proud of it and the significance of the stone to me, as sapphire is my FI’s birthstone. I’ve gotten nothing but compliments on it, and yes, people do notice how unlike a diamond it is, and think it’s beautiful nonetheless. I’m sorry your coworkers are catty, but you shouldn’t feel insecure because what they are saying is untrue. A white sapphire is a beautiful gemstone in it’s own right.

Well, first of all I can’t soak in anyone said anything about your ring in the first place.

I think your ring looks really cool, the design and everything.  And if someone wanted me to remove it from my finger there would be a problem.

Thing is I have a white sapphire ring.  It’s my choice and if others don’t like it thats tough.

That said as far as white sapphires go I feel the cut can make or break the stone.  The cut controls the light reflecting off the angles and overall shine.  I got my stone on e-bay.  On e-bay usually the seller will state something like, ‘exceptional cut’ or ‘diamond cut.’ I would not purchase a stone that didn’t at least state something like that for the cut.  And when I took it to my designer she appriased the cut as exceptional.  I got lucky because I ordered it sight unseen.

And again, what the hell is up with any girls at disney telling you to remove YOUR ring?  That offends me much more than any ring would.
