Not at all. My only thought is: it’s beautiful. People don’t always react well to things out of the norm. I have a yellow diamond – not a white, 1ct, solitaire that everyone around me has. They were so thrown by the difference that their only reactions have been awkward silence. But they don’t have to wear it and I love it. Don’t worry. They don’t think he’s a cheapskate and they’ll warm up. 🙂

I don’t think e-rings with colored gems look cheap at all.  I have a clear colored stone e-ring, but I do have a pink sapphire in a halo that I wear sometimes in place of the first one.  So, I LOVE pink sapphires. 🙂

A pink sapphire sounds stunning!  I got an amethyst, and I feel like it better represents us as a couple, as amethyst is FI’s birth stone and the setting looks like a horse bit (I like riding.)

It sounds like you got a beautiful stone- a color you love in a shape that’s sentimental to you.  That’s all that matters.  I think all engagement rings are beautiful in their own way, and it seems like yours is particularly meaningful.  Congratulations!

P.S. I thought you might also like my username ; )

My thoughts: beautiful gemstone!

Some people have a very set notion in their head that engagement rings = clear diamonds. A very large percentage of women have colored stones and there’s nothing wrong with it!

I love colored stones, so I would definitely not think “cheap!”

@ShutterbugCait:  I truly believe every woman should get whatever type of stone that she wants for her e-ring.  If she wants a diamond, great.  If she wants a pink sapphire, great.  If she doesn’t even want an e-ring, great!  You should get what sings to you and speaks to your heart!

But since you did ask a specific question, I will tell you when I see a colored gemstone, unless it is a diamond, I know that is is cheaper than a diamond (obviously there are exceptions – a teeny tiny diamond will be cheaper than a larger sized sapphire).  Sapphires aren’t super cheap, but they are cheaper than diamonds.  Morganites, aquamarines, citrines, etc. are all extremely cheap compared to diamonds of comparable size and quality.  But that doesn’t mean I look at that person and think – wow they are cheap!!  I don’t look at it in a negative way.

Do it…if you like it then it is your choice…you are the one who is going to be looking at it forever and you should have something you want and not go with something just because it is what everyone else does ….do you have a pic? you do know that we all like pics right lol

Many varieties of natural, untreated sapphires of desirable color actually rival diamond prices. Padparadschas, Kashmirs? Major bucks.

@KatyElle:  Very true.  Although I think unfortunately a lot of sapphires out their on the market are treated, with more than just heat.  Man, I spend too much time lurking on pricescope….

All these wonderful ladies have said it perfectly.  Whatever stone sings to you is exactly the stone that you are meant to have!  I think everyone’s ring is absolutely beautiful, lol, I’m a bit of a hopeless romantic.  But I personally adore colored stones in e-rings.  I myself have a colored stone, and my family’s reaction was different as well.  Somewhere along the lines of, “Oh! Well…it’s beautiful, but it’s orange….” Ha! 

So adore your perfect ring, it sounds lovely!

@KatyElle:  Holy cow, you are so right.  While my husband was choosing the stone for my ring, he fell in love with the Padparadsha.  But then soon found out that it’s like $10,000+ a carat.  Surprised  So he chose a nice lab grown Padparadsha, lol.
