Alternatives to the classic natural diamonds for engagement rings


When thinking about engagement rings, many go for the classic natural diamonds. But it's also important to remember that while nothing beats the classic, alternatives are an option, and choosing an engagement ring is still a personal decision. It pays to explore all your options to find the perfect ring. One may decide to stick to the classic natural diamonds or opt for colored gemstones, moissanite, or lab-grown diamonds. 


Colored gemstones come in a wide range of colors, from deep blues and greens to soft pinks and yellows. Each has a unique meaning and symbolism. This gives the couple free reign to choose a stone that reflects their individuality, uniqueness, and personality as showcased in their various colors, shades, and hues. Some popular colored gemstones used in engagement rings include sapphires, rubies, emeralds, and morganite.



Moissanite is a lab-created gemstone that is known for its brilliance, durability, and affordability. Often compared to diamonds because of its sparkle and fire, it is a different type of gemstone altogether. A popular diamond alternative that is often used in engagement rings and other jewelry. Some choose moissanite because it still offers a stunning and timeless look without breaking the bank. 



Lab-grown diamonds are physically, chemically, and optically identical to their natural counterpart. It's becoming increasingly popular as they offer a more affordable alternative to mined diamonds. They are produced in a laboratory that mimics the natural process of diamond formation, which makes it perfect for couples who want to go the more ethical route.  



Getting engaged is more than just finding a piece that fits, but rather finding one that perfectly represents a couple's love and commitment. Make it personal, make it yours. Because it is.
