    Have you thought about moissanite? Or a lab created sapphire? I got a gorgeous treated sapphire on ebay for $10 (to put in my original e-ring setting) and I get compliments on it all the time!

    I voted to let him choose because at this point he has heard all your opinions on a number of rings, and sounds like he has been attentive. I think you can trust him now to choose something you will like within his budget. Plus it’ll be a surprise and you may love it more for the romantic value 🙂

    Green diamonds (the affordable ones anyway) are usually irradiated, which IMO puts them pretty much on par with a lab created stone. I think if you want something that is afforable and beautiful (and something that YOU want!) then you should talk him into being okay with lab created stones.

    I would also take a second look at moissanite, or perhaps even Asha (CZ). My ring was well under $1000, and is pretty blingy if I do say so myself Wink

    Are green or blue diamonds natural? Do they heat treat them or something? I’ve never heard of any color other than yellow.

    @GoldfishPie:  Totally agree, I was just googling the blue diamonds and it seems like a lab created stone would be a better bet

    Colored diamonds do naturally occur, but the affordable ones are usually irradiated.

    Yeah the site I read said that natural blue diamonds are so rare most jewelers will never see one.

    At this point I would let him choose. I am in a similar situation to yours where I can’t make up my mind but the difference is my husband refuses to choose so it makes it that much harder for me. I am exactly like you, obsessing over rings, losing sleep, embarrased, every jewelry store in the area knows who I am and I have Blue Nile on speedial and everyone has to throw the phone around to see whos turn is it to talk to me lol
