Blue and white is probably one of my favorite color combinations, so if asked to choose my favorite precious stones, sapphires and pearls are my top two choices. If I could design my dream ring, regardless of what it’s for, it would be a pearl surrounded by sapphires, all in a white gold setting (Yellow gold looks horrible on me.). I’m not a huge fan of diamonds, as I think they’re too obvious and the go-to stone for everything, but I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t love to have the Duchess of Cambridge’s engagement ring. It reminds me of the “Heart of the Ocean” necklace from Titanic, only oval-shaped instead of heart-shaped.
My other favorite precious stone would be aquamarine. I think aquamarine and pearl would be a nice combination as well. Maybe something that looked like this —
