Breaking tradition: An engagement ring without diamonds

Aren’t diamonds the first thing that come to mind, when we think of engagement rings? It seems like diamonds have always been the obvious choice for an engagement ring, and the bigger and brighter it is, the more lucky you are thought to be, to flaunt it on your finger.

An interesting fact, however, is that although we have always been led to believe so, diamonds weren’t the traditional choice. In fact, these stones were available to the public, only after mining operations for this stone were successful in the late 1800’s. It was then popularized by smart advertising campaigns and ingrained into the minds of the common man, that it finally became synonymous with engagements. Remember that our ancestors were all getting engaged and married, long before this happened.

Now that you know the story behind diamonds, you should realize that diamonds needn’t be your only choice for an engagement ring. Plus, if the price of a stunning solitaire is delaying your engagement, welcome the alternative. Do it in style with a different, but equally befitting and colorful choice.

A word of advice here; rather than fix a particular stone, it is better that you choose the color that your lady loves, and look at the various options in that color to find the best ring available. Depending on your choice, you may even be able to afford a bigger stone this way, than you would if you were going for a diamond. Another benefit of choosing a colored stone is that you have the option to have it all by itself, or even set with other smaller stones for a stunning effect.

Let us now take a look at the various other options you have.

Romantic Red: The color that symbolizes love itself, it is noble and signifies friendship, loyalty and devotion. Choose garnet for an earthy, rustic stone, or ruby which is considered the King of Gems to strengthen your bond of love and eternal friendship.

Blissfully Blue: The color of nobility and youth, you have a variety of choices in blue, depending on the hue you like the most. The deepest blue is for saphire, and the stone is rich and lustrous too. For a lighter shade, choose topaz or aquamarine.

Glamorous Green: Green gems represent the power and beauty of nature itself. Emeralds are the perfect symbol of love, believed to bless the wearer with faithfulness, fertility and fortune. For an individual twist, you can also opt for peridot or tourmaline to add a vibrant pop of color to the ring finger.

Pretty pink and Purple: For that perfectly feminine touch, try pink or purple with stones like quartz, tourmaline or amethyst. These stones have a rugged natural finish, and represent new love like yours, that will mature over the years.

Glitzy Gold and Stunning Silver: If you aren’t really keen on stones, you can even choose to have a gold or silver band with a significant icon such as the love knot on it. Choose a matching pair of ear studs and you have the perfect engagement set, that will form a wonderful jewelry set for all occasions in your married life and a wonderful heirloom.
