Which pink sapphire engagement ring to select?

by Jessie

Ok, I hope you can help, I feel I am close to picking something out for my gorgeous girlfriend who is a freak for pink.

I always planned to use Blue Nile for my purchase and she did mention she liked the pink sapphire side sets with the diamond in the middle. But since then she has sent me a couple of links of rings she found nice or ok...I will post those two links here...as you can see she has switched to the gemstone as the focal point:




Now I also looked around and found this one...but I am not sure if it is pink enough, I like the style of it...but it may be a bit too purple (I am an LSU fan so that doesn't bother me), but I know she would be excited either way, but just wanted to show this one as well:


The only thing is that I am not sure about the reputation of the site the rings are on...I went on Blue Nile and tried to find something similar, but the gemstone centered rings are very small and not what I am looking for. I am trying to stay at a maximum of $5,000 and am not against a round or princess cut diamond in the middle with some pink sapphires on the side or the sapphire in the middle with the diamonds on the side. The upside with the pink in the middle is that I would be able to afford a bigger stone than a similarly sized diamond.

Just a small amount of background on my gf...obviously she likes pink...she is about 5'5" 125 lbs, very beautiful, i believe she wears a 6 or 6.5 ring size. Long brown hair and green eyes. If there is any there is any other info that may help just ask.

I thank you for your help and any advice you can give.

Thanks again,

Thanks for the reply, you have definitely made me feel better about purchasing from that site if I can decide on a ring, LOL, you would think I am the one wearing it I am so worried about picking it out. I just know it is going to be on her hand for the rest of her life, kind of like a tattoo, and I get paranoid about getting anything that permanent perfect. I am actually thinking of bringing her back to my hometown in New Orleans (I live and work in GA now) and she has never been, and I am thinking of proposing next weekend and the venue: Oak Alley Plantation...I plan to walk her down the aisle of trees away from the crowds and plantation house and do it under the century old oaks (those trees have stood the test of time and I know we will as well). You can see a picture of what I am referring to when you go to this website and see the first picture: http://www.oakalleyplantation.com/

Pink Sapphire Ring

Hi Jessie,
Congrats on being close to proposing to your girlfriend. It sounds as though you are very in love with her :)
The pink sapphire is a lovely choice for an engagement ring....classy yet different than the standard diamond ring. All three links to the rings you both have selected are very pretty!

You are right to feel a little uncomfortable purchasing from a website that you are unfamiliar with. A few things listed on the website make me feel more comfortable with it: They are a member of the Better Business Bureau and have a satisfactory standing with the company. The BBB indicates that only one customer filed a complaint in the last 36 months and that the complaint was resolved. Another thing listed is that they are a member of the jeweler's vigilance committee: this is an organization which promotes ethics and high standards in the jewelry industry. The company also has a decent return policy, in case you are not satisfied with the ring. However, be sure to check out their policy on ring resizing.

You may want to give them a call and see what their customer service is like. This may also help you to feel at ease with the company.
