Posted on Thursday, September 5th, 2019 at 3:21 pm by Ad

If you like to stray off the beaten path and want to put your adventurous side on full display, buying a non-diamond engagement ring may be a lasting symbol of your nonconformist attitude. Everyone associates diamonds with engagement rings, their union has been engraved into our psyches. But there is a treasure trove of gemstones out there for the taking, and a few of them are actually far rarer than the routine diamond. 

Don’t get us wrong, diamond engagement rings are an iconic classic. There is a reason why they are so cherished, but that isn’t to say that the other glittery gems should be disregarded. Trends point to couples reaching for more subtle engagement rings. The same can be said for non-diamond engagement rings.

Most Popular Non-Diamond Engagement Rings

Diamond alternatives are growing in popularity. Not only because of their uniqueness, but also because they are more ethical. Today’s engagement ring shoppers are not only looking for originality but also cruelty-free diamonds and gemstones. The diamond trade has spawned brutal civil conflicts throughout Africa, and has a shadowy international underbelly. Opting to buy a diamond alternative is thought to minimize the likelihood that someone was harmed in the mining or trading process. 

(IMPORTANT: Jeweler’s Touch prides ourselves in only offering our customers conflict-free diamonds and guilt-free gemstones that are always ethically sourced.) 

Morganite Engagement Rings - Morganite has blinged its way onto the engagement ring scene, snagging the title for most popular diamond alternative. It seems that the rise of ‘rose gold hues’, in everything from cell phones to handbags, has prompted this new demand for morganite engagement rings. The ‘rosé all day’ crowd will fall head over heels with this warm-peachy colored gemstone. As far as durability, morganite ranks rather high on the hardness scale. Coming in at a sturdy 7.5–8 on Mohs scale, this makes morganite suitable for everyday wear and an excellent, ultra-feminine addition to any bride-to-be’s ring finger. 

Tanzanite - Tanzanite, often confused with sapphires because of its deep blue jewel-tones, is actually 1000x rarer than the diamond. Tanzanite can sometimes sport vibrant violet hues as well. Only known to exist in one place on the planet, this ultra-rare gemstone is mined in Tanzania near Mt. Kilimanjaro. This diamond alternative is for the sultry types, and is sure to turn heads when out in public.

Pearl with Gold Engagement Ring Setting - Second only to the diamond, the pearl is about as classic and traditional as you can get. Pairing a pearl with a gold band can turn any non-diamond engagement ring into an elegant masterpiece. Jeweler’s Touch has affordable freshwater pearls set in gold bands that are fitting for a fairytale finish to your engagement night. Pearls are also said to bring good omens and be associated with loyalty, generosity and purity.

Newborn Created Diamonds - Did you actually think we shamelessly slid a diamond engagement ring into an article entirely about non-diamond engagement rings? Well, we did. While the look, feel, clarity and composition are all up to par with earth-mined diamonds, the one glaring difference is that our Newborn diamonds were created in a lab. Even experienced jewelers can’t tell them apart from natural diamonds. You may find this to be a great alternative to buying a mined diamond. This is also an excellent choice for those that want a diamond engagement ring that is an entirely cruelty-free diamond.
