So, my boyfriend of almost 4 years proposed to me yesterday!!!

It is a deep purple sapphire measuring 8mm x 8mm.  It is a cushion cut with a 14kt white gold halo setting.  I wanted the halo and the band to be super-dainty so it looked sparkly but not ostentatious.  The sapphire is a very rich purple with strong flashes of a raspbery red, especially in incandescent light.  It has just enough flash for me without being overwhelming.

I love it and I wanted to share :)

(the pictures aren''t the best- I had a really hard time catching the flash in the stone)
