I don’t think so! 

White sapphires can be as clear as diamonds; you have to vet them just like you do diamonds.  The difference is that they don’t refract light like diamonds…instead of rainbow firey sparkles, you get a lot of white sparkles.

I think you should go for it (or at least look at your options)!  What kind of wrap are you thinking with your e-ring?

I’ve looked into sapphires for other jewelry, and as long as you get really clean, quality stones you should be good. There might be a *slight* difference that somebody who’s getting real close to it might be able to see that it isn’t a diamond or isn’t a really clear diamond, but the average joe will have no clue. Everyone told me that you’d be able to tell the difference in quality in my stones (center stone is almost colorless, side stones are, well, sidestones) and I have no idea what they were smoking. =] You could alternate blue and white sapphires, too =]

I would personally go for the wrap because your ring has so much going for it, that I think the Tiffany would take away from how special your engagement ring is. They are both beautiful choices though, so whatever you decide will look amazing, I’m sure! 🙂

I have a white sapphire center stone and diamonds in the setting.  They do look different- the diamonds are lot more sparkly and refract the light a lot more giving it that irredescent sparkle, while the sapphire basically just captures and reflects the light.  And I do find that if the ring get dirty, then the shine of the sapphire is more effected than the diamonds.

Assuming your avatar picture is your ring- I agree with Ms TN- the double milgrain would best compliment your ering.

First, I must say, I really like both your options!

but I understand about your attraction to the Tiffany Swing ring.  I love love love it!!

Are you set on buying a band that you wear on the same finger with your E-ring?  If not, you could always wear the Swing ring on your left hand as your wedding band and your Engagement Ring on your right hand….

Just a thought. 🙂
