There is no doubt that alternative engagement rings are more popular than ever. More and more couples are looking at unique and non-traditional stones and styles to reflect their individuality and love stories. This popularity trend has even been seen in Hollywood with celebrities such as Emma Stone, Katy Perry, Gwyneth Paltrow and more! There are endless options when it comes to choosing an alternative engagement ring with so many beautiful, unique and colorful stones and settings. Also, not to mention, the often-lower price tag is a major plus for many couples.
So, what are non-diamond engagement rings? There is no shortage of unique options out there! Non-diamond center stones can include colored gemstones such as sapphires, rubies, and emeralds. Other semi-precious stones such as morganite, tourmaline, quartz, topaz, garnet, and so many more are popular choices as well.
The most important factor to consider when choosing an alternative stone is to ensure your ring is stunning and durable. Think about your daily life - do you go to the gym every day? Do you use your hands a lot at work? Are you constantly knocking your hands against things? If the answer is yes, you may want to steer away from softer gemstones such as emeralds or opals and look into the direction of harder gemstones such as sapphires and rubies.
