3 IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT CHOOSING AN ENGAGEMENT RING

Differ from Diamonds

If you’re getting engaged, but worrying over the cost of an engagement ring, why not buck the trend and opt for something unique- Differ from Diamonds

Tradition leads us to believe that to be engaged means a diamond engagement ring, but this can be pricey. Why not save yourself the trouble and explore different gemstones? After all, if we broaden the marital spectrum, we are spoilt for choice! We seem to have forgotten that the idea of marriage is to celebrate love and the all-important engagement ring has become a token of this.

3 examples of ways we can branch out and express our personalities, selecting the perfect gemstone to make each engagement ring fresh and unique. Another pointer is instead of opting for that traditional gold band, maybe think about using white gold or even silver. Different gemstones complement different metals so why not do away with tradition entirely and go for something truly different? Even if your bank balance is skating on thin ice, mixing things up in regards to your engagement ring may actually be more meaningful! So maybe step away from uniformity. Diamonds are beautiful, yes, but so are other gemstones and these in turn add a more personal, thoughtful touch. So start dropping hints, ladies, the horizon has broadened!
