@AshleyR83:  Oh they are, I think only like 2% (don’t quote me) of sapphires on the market are unheated. But to alleviate OP’s worry on people’s perspective I don’t look at colored gem rings as cheap (unless it’s SUPER obvious, huge, way too perfect color, clunky looking setting), I look at it as “Oooooh, where did THAT come from?”

I have a pad spinel waiting in the wings for a perfect setting, no treatment, and it will GLOW once it gets into it’s right setting! Colored gems are fascinating to me!

What! I do not think sapphires are cheap at all! Have they not taken a gander at all the royal jewels from all the different countries? Most of them include sapphires and/or rubies!

I think they’re gorgeous. If I loved the color pink as much as you, I would have gotten a pink sapphire too! I was seriously considering a blue sapphire for a long time. But a yellow stone just looked better on my skintone

Oh I think pink sapphires are so so so lovely. I had asked Fiance for a pink sapphire engagement ring before I realized he had already bought me a diamond.

No, it’s not cheap at all.  Maybe people might think it’s cheap if they’re totally uneducated on gemstones.  But anyone who’s actually looked into the price of an engagement ring knows that the price of a nice setting and natural sapphire isn’t cheap at all.  As for the look, no, the look itself isn’t cheap.  Your ering’s gorgeous, btw!  If I saw that IRL I’d think it was stunning, unique, a lot of things, but not cheap!

I loved colored gemstone engagement rings! And your pink sapphire is gorgeous 🙂 Don’t worry about what anyone else thinks. If you and your fiance are happy that is ALL that matters.

I’ve never seen a pink sapphire in person..but I love all these colorful e rings I see on the bee. I personally have a diamond, but I can appreciate an awesome gemstone. If you love it, then it’s the stone for you!

@KatyElle:  I think you’re right about that 2% number!  For a while I considered a sapphire and diamond wedding band, but after I learned it was essentially impossible to make sure the tiny sapphires in the band were untreated, I gave up that idea. 

For those of you who buy colored gemstones, I think it’s important for you to know what treatments, if any, your stone has been subjected to so you are not getting ripped off.  I think too often a jeweler will hike up the price of a stone even if it’s been heat treated or chemically treated/diffused.  I don’t think there’s absolutely anything inherently wrong with treated colored stones, I just think you should know what those treatments are so you are not paying a premium for something that you shouldn’t be.

@ShutterbugCait:  I think your ring is gorgeous.  I’ve been through the whole “uhhh, that’s not a diamond” thing as well.  I think you should be proud to rock such a beautiful, unique, precious stone!

1. Your ring is stunning.

Some people just haven’t been exposed to as much wedding/engagement related stuff as we have, and so they assume that diamonds are the only engagement ring option, and they don’t know that other gem stones can be even more expensive, and are just as legitimate. Hopefully they weren’t trying to be hurtful.

@MrsBlueSeptember:  Oh, and I think that we should just share our collection of rings with each other- we do live pretty close…. 😉  Lovin that sapphire.
