Ariel rocks one of their sapphire engagement rings and I have one of their cool sapphire bands that I like to mix and match with my wedding rings. But enough about us … let's talk about pretty sparkly blue things! Pardon me … Ethically-sourced sparkly blue things! Sapphires are an awesome alternative to diamond engagement rings. I just love the infusion of color in something that you wear every day. Plus, the cool thing about sapphires is that they can come in every color of the rainbow. Seriously, check out Brilliant Earth's loose gemstone gallery and search for sapphires only — you'll find so many variations on a theme of blue, along with pinks, purples, greens, yellows, even orange! The mind boggles. And of course, like all of Brilliant Earth's jewelry, their sapphires are ethically-sourced, making your pretty, colorful bling super Earth-friendly. Head over to Brilliant Earth to check out their sapphire collection and add a splash of gorgeous color to your wedding finger.

But I discovered that if I want one of their settings, I HAVE TO purchase a diamond from them… so SO disappointing since I already have a lovely diamond that I want to use. I can't afford to buy a diamond, and seriously, what is more 'green' than recycling a diamond?! I hope someday they'll reconsider this policy, so even brides with small budgets can enjoy their jewelry. 5 agree Reply Have you thought about posting on Etsy Alchemy? Reply I haven't… I'm familiar with Etsy but didn't know about this feature. Thanks for the heads up! Reply I love the idea of having no diamond in the ring. My daughters' names are Crystal and Sapphire, and I would love having them in my wedding ring. Thank you so much for that idea. Reply My FiancÃ© purchased my gorgeous white sapphire ring in Paris and proposed to me on a little bridge over the Seine. We had discussed previously that I was not hip on diamonds and wanted no "blood" on my hands, so to speak. He found a gorgeous ring that looks like a little sunflower and is just perfect. It's kind of hard to see in this pic, but here it is! http://bit.ly/hT4hZK Not Brilliant Earth, but I love it nonetheless. Maybe B.E. will be my wedding ring! 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
