Hello! I'm looking for a pretty stone for my anniversary ring project. Initially, I was thinking aquamarine, but I love some of the blue-green, Montana-type sapphires, though, it'll be tough to find one (in the size I like) in my price point. I'd like the stone to be at least 8mm, I love cushions, and am considering ovals & pears. No rounds or princess cuts. The stone doesn't need to be perfect, but I wouldn't want one with obvious flaws. I love the lighter shades of blues & greens. As far as sapphires go, I like the blue/green lighter ones, not the true/dark blues.

I saw this pear on Etsy...it's at the top of my price range. Any thoughts? https://www.etsy.com/listing/181595540/blue-green-sapphire-pear-shape-240

Thanks in advance

An aquamarine by the same seller, though I worry a little about wear/tear with an aquamarine

A really light colored aquamarine. I'm fine with lighter shades

Kind of a cool teal-ish sapphire pear, but concerned about windowing

Here's a couple to kick off; I agree that it might be a challenge!!

Is this too saturated? It's a lighter blue and has size and price on its side:

This is less saturated, but leans purple, not green:

Might be a bit more cyan than the others, though it faces-up a little smaller:

And for something a little different;

I'm looking to make a ring similar to this, depending on the center stone shape
