Trendy New Types of Engagement Rings

While diamonds used to be a girl's best friend, times and trends are changing, and that may not necessarily be as true as it once was. It seems that more and more, people are seeking engagement rings that are as unique as they are, and as a result, engagement rings are being made with a wider variety of gemstones and in more styles than they used to be. If you think that a gemstone ring may be right for you and your significant other, but aren't sure, here are a few reasons why a gemstone ring may be a good way to go.

There's More Variety

When you choose to shop for gemstone rings instead of traditional diamond ones, you can open up your options to a wider variety of jewelry. From milky opals and moonstones to deep sapphires and emeralds, to fiery garnets and rubies, there can be a wide array of colors when shopping for a gemstone. Not only that, but they can come in many styles and shapes as well. Choosing a gemstone can not only be a beautiful option, but one that sets you apart from the crowd, as well.

It's a Growing Trend

While many do still opt for a traditional diamond, more and more couples seem to be interested in choosing a gemstone ring. Even celebrities seem to be getting in on the trend, for example, Jessica Simpson sports a ruby engagement ring, and Halle Barry has an emerald one. Big name celebrities giving gemstone engagement rings a try is just another sign that this trend not only may be growing in popularity, but also may be here to stay.

They Can Make Your Loved One Feel Extra Special

Choosing a gem could also be another way to show your loved one just how much they mean to you. This could be particularly true if you choose their birthstone. This way, they can have a ring that may not only be beautiful, but is also a special expression of them and who they are. It is also another way to add a personal touch and show them how much they, and they alone, mean to you.

They Tell Your Story

Another benefit of opting for a gemstone is that it can have a personal story behind it. Is there a particular gem that has a special meaning to you or your loved one? Would you like to find a ring that reminds you of a family heirloom? Seeking a ring with that gem can give it extra meaning, so not only can the ring have meaning by being a symbol of your love for each other, but also because of other meanings that particular gem might have for you.

They May Be More Affordable

A traditional diamond ring can at times be pricey. While a gemstone ring can be expensive at times as well, depending on the gem you choose, it may be more affordable than a diamond. Being able to save some money on the ring you choose could not only potentially help to reduce some of the stress of shopping for an engagement ring, but also help enable you to save money for some of the other things in your future, like a wedding or honeymoon.

The Takeaway

Not only can a gemstone ring be beautiful, but it can be a unique and interesting way to express your love for that special person in your life. When you choose to shop for a gemstone ring, you open yourself up to a wide variety of colorful and intriguing options. Beyond this, it may give you the opportunity to find a ring for your loved one that can have a special meaning for them.

So, whether you want to give your significant other a ring that no one else has, or would like to give them something beautiful while trying to save some money, a gemstone ring may be just the right option for you.
