Who else is doing something other than a diamond for their engagement ring? And what was your reason?
Personally my ring is in the process of being made, but we used a golden Imperial Topaz. We are both November babies (Scorpios) and we have the same birthstone. Plus I am not a big fan of diamonds. This way we have something more signifigant to us too. And for anyone that thinks citrine is the birthsone for November, you must have been born after 88. It use to be that all the charts said Golden Topaz, but as they have become more and more rare they slowly changed over to the less desirable but cheaper citrine. Many dealers want to make a sale and will tell you they are the same or look the same, but if you believe that you have never seen a golden topaz in person. Also if you buy one, make sure you go somewhere reputable. They are rare and hard to find, so some place that are not so reputable will try and sell citrines as topaz. I have seen this for sure on ebay and etsy. Though there are real ones on there too.
