I’m in the process of deciding what type of engagement ring I would like. I stumbled across white sapphires and was curious if anyone had one. Can you post a pic? Also what is the difference between the look of the white sapphire and a diamond?

i have a white sapphire e-ring. i have had people comment on how huge my diamond is. i’m not shy about telling them that they’re wrong and that i actually have a white sapphire, not a diamond.
the one picture shows the e-ring with my wedding band. i see the difference in the sunlight, because the rainbows are a bit more prominent with my band, but not indoors. my sapphire does have flash to it when the sun hits it and i do see rainbows, just a bit less than with a diamond.

I’m pretty sure white sapphires could be described in other ways than that…

White Sapphires are sapphires that are white. simple as that.

Here’s my e-ring! The centerstone is a white sapphire and the sidestones are diamonds. A white sapphire throws more blues, as opposed to a diamond which throws a rainbow. Your jeweler will know the difference, your friends and family will not. It was much more inexpensive (ahem) than its diamond counterpart, but it looks the same.
Let’s please refrain from snarky or catty comments ladies. That includes calling others’ stones cheap, or calling other users trolls…

Uh…white sapphires are real.
Although I do prefer the blue, white sapphires are gorgeous as well.

This may be useful although kind of hard to read due to the background I’d suggest copy and pasting it into a document:

Thanks ladies. I wasn’t interested in the white sapphire because it was less expensive. I simply had never seen one and only knew of the blue kind. I actually thought it was a beautiful stone and was considering diamond alternatives not because I couldn’t afford one but simply because I thought it was beautiful and for other political issues that I won’t rehash here. Thanks for the photos, your rings are beautiful.
Since it came up, do any of you have to deal with rude comments about your rings?

I have yet to experience anything blatantly rude…just a lot of hinting that I would have been better off with a diamond. For what reasons? They never really get around to that part.
The white sapphire rings in the post are gorgeous. I was initially considering the stone for my e-ring when I discovered moissanite, which I ended up choosing.
Good luck! 🙂
