Buying The Right Jewelry

A few years ago, I got a great gift for my wife. I thought it would be nice to choose a gorgeous gold locket with our family picture in it. She absolutely loved the gift, so I was surprised when she never wore it out of the house. After I talked with her, she explained that the locket was too nice to wear with most of her everyday outfits. That day, I learned a little about buying the right jewelry. Together, my wife and I have developed this blog dedicated to all things jewelry, so that you can buy the right gifts for your loved one.

The Rise Of Alternative Gemstones: Non-Traditional Choices For Custom Engagement Rings

If you're like most people, a sparkling diamond may be the first image that comes to mind when you think of engagement rings. However, there's a growing trend of couples choosing alternative gemstones to create a one-of-a-kind custom engagement ring to make personal statements. These non-traditional choices can be just as stunning as diamonds, while often being more affordable and showcasing your unique personality and style.

If you're in the market for an engagement ring and are considering going down the road less traveled, here's what you need to know about thinking outside the box when it comes to gemstones:

The Allure of Colored Gemstones

One of the most captivating aspects of non-traditional gemstones is their incredible range of colors. From deep blue sapphires to vibrant green emeralds, these colored stones can make a bold statement and provide a personal touch to your custom engagement ring. Many couples are drawn to their birthstones or choose a gem that holds special meaning, such as the stone representing the month they first met. Incorporating a colored gemstone into your ring design can also be an opportunity to celebrate your love story and create a meaningful connection to your engagement ring.

Standout Stones: Sapphires, Rubies, and More

While there are countless alternative gemstones to consider, some of the most popular choices for engagement rings include sapphires, rubies, emeralds, and morganite. Sapphires, available in various hues such as blue, pink, and yellow, are highly durable and symbolize loyalty and trust. Rubies, with their deep red color, represent passion and love, making them a fitting choice for an engagement ring. Emeralds, known for their rich green color, exude elegance and are associated with growth and new beginnings. Meanwhile, morganite has gained popularity in recent years for its peachy-pink hue and romantic allure.

The Beauty of Unique and Unconventional Gems

For those seeking truly unique and unconventional options, there's a world of lesser-known gemstones waiting to be discovered. Consider moonstone, with its mysterious blue sheen, or labradorite, known for its iridescent play of colors. Tourmaline offers a wide range of colors, from vibrant greens and pinks to the captivating watermelon variety. There's also the option of incorporating raw, uncut stones or geodes into your custom engagement ring for a truly distinctive look.

Balancing Beauty and Practicality

When choosing an alternative gemstone for your custom engagement ring, it's essential to consider factors such as durability, rarity, and personal preference. Consult with a knowledgeable jeweler to ensure the stone you select will stand up to everyday wear and be a lasting symbol of your love.
