Different people have different preferences. Especially when it comes to choosing engagement rings, it is important to become highly detail-oriented and carefully compare one with another. Because engagement rings play a main role in a proposal, it is important to find the perfect ring for your partner. While some may prefer having diamonds or color diamonds on their engagement ring, some may prefer other gemstones. Here we have lists of few gemstones that can be good alternatives for your engagement ring.




Beginning with the birthstone of May, Emeralds. While Diamonds are known for their brilliance, Emeralds gemstone are attracted by their colors. Because of its appealing green colors, a lot of people found themselves falling in love with Emeralds. Since they are also included in the precious gemstone category, it is common that quite a number of people chose Emeralds as an alternative on their engagement ring gemstone.




Another precious gemstone, Sapphire. Sapphire is made of Corundum which is one of the hardest substances after diamond, which means it is as strong as diamond and perfect for anyone who is likely to slam their hand anywhere in the house, you no longer have to worry about damaging your engagement ring. Although Sapphire’s colour ranges may include yellow, green, blue, orange, black, and pink, by far the Blue Sapphires are the most likely to see and gems with rich blue to violet colour are the most preferable.




Just like Sapphires, Rubies also belong to one of the Corundum species, which mean rubies are as strong as sapphires. The only difference is that rubies only have one shade of colour, which is red. In the past, people believed that these red colour gemstones symbolize power and protection. When worn as a talisman, ruby was believed to protect warriors in the battle. Not only that, many Medieval Europeans wore ruby to guarantee their power, wealth, wisdom, passion, and success in love. Therefore as a symbol of passion, ruby becomes an ideal perfect romantic gift.


Lab Grown Diamonds
