I’m going to try to do this actually.  We’re going to have my wedding band custom made (we’ve actually seen a wedding band made for my ring) and we’re going to talk to them about incorporating sapphires because I LOVE the look of sapphires especially in vintage looking rings.  He said he thinks he has an idea to make it work so I think it could definitely work!

I don’t think it would be weird at all. Mine don’t match, and I think the band you have picked out will compliment your engagement ring very nicely.

I think that would be very nice!  My engagement ring has a colored stone, though the wedding ring I like wouldn’t.   So backwards not matching.  But, I think they could compliment each other really nicely without matching.

My sister has rubies and diamonds (rubies are her birthstone). I think it looks really pretty and definitely unique!

My e-ring is only diamonds, but my wedding band has green tourmalines in it.

Here’s pictures (I don’t have my wedding band yet, it’s on order. But these are pics of the sample band; the rings are in the wrong order because the sample was way too big and that’s the only way I could get them to be somewhat-flat against each other.)

“That’s lovely! What made you choose green tourmaline?”


I came to green tourmaline working with the jeweler (online jeweler: ID Jewelry). I originally was looking for tsavorite, that’s what the first ring I tried on at a local store was. They aren’t very hard though, so then I thought I could do green sapphires, but the ring didn’t come in green sapphire and it wouldn’t be as intense of color. The store sent me a sample in tourmaline and their tourmalines are just as bright as tsavorites, so that’s what I went with. I honestly wouldn’t have thought of tourmalines if the jeweler wouldn’t have sent me the sample ring to look at!

I love colored stones and I think your idea of incorporating amethyst and white sapphire is beautiful and meaningful!  Love both of the rings!

@abbyful: Great rings!

1) I love your e-ring!

2) I don’t think colored stones would be weird at all for your wedding band!

3) I love the idea of using your signature color, purple, in your band! Makes it more personal!
