My engagement ring is a medium blue Sapphire heart made and bought from India, Europe. Where best cut and found sapphires are to be found. He knows my tastes and knows it very well.
Now, I don't know why people are saying it is cheaper when mine sure wasn't. My fiance paid a little over $1,100 U.S dollars direct to the company as he was stationed in Japan over the summer. However, this ring is appraised a little over $3,000, towards $4,000 US dollars if bought in U.S. I don't find that "cheap" as I always see engagements diamond rings between $400-$999 all the time.
I love sapphires. I am not much of a traditional diamond girl. A good 90% of my Jewelery is Sapphire.
It is also my birthstone (September 21st b-day)
Sapphire is a beautiful shade of blue and it appeals to me more than any other color.
Symbol of our eternal love and going to be together. He is my first love, my first boyfriend, first break up, best friend, high school sweet heart. I mean, he is my everything and he loves to make me happy as I do to. We have always been faithful and loyal and this ring signifies we are ready to make that commitment to each other.
I find it more elegant and unique. I love uniqueness! I like to have different and he sure did great on the design of the band to the ring itself.
