    OT: Ring Bling--Colored or Clear?
    BalconyBelle posted:
    Hi everyone,

    Just out of curiosity started by comments in another thread...when it comes to rings, do you prefer clear stones (white diamonds, sapphires, topaz, CZ, ect), or colored ones? And would your preference change in regard to wedding bands/engagement rings?

    I truly don't care for favorite stones are ammolite, black opal, mystic topaz, topaz, sapphire, amethyst, tanzanite, alexandrite, Tibetan moonstone, high quality labradorite, and pearl. I love bling, but I like it to be colored from the twilight & oceanic shades of the spectrum

    For my wedding set, I'd love mystic topaz flanked by sapphire and topaz accents set in white gold--it would suit my taste and personality much more than a diamond band, no matter how beautiful.

    Does anyone else have a preference for colored stones? And would your preference carry over into a wedding set?

    I have no stones. The only jewelry I wear is my wedding band - slightly convex white gold with two yellow gold rim-type edges. His is identical.
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
