10 Alternative Engagement Ring Stones

Engagement rings with coloured stones are a major trend at the moment, and with good reason. Not only are colourful center stones eye-catching and beautiful, they are often less pricey than the classic diamond – depending on which gemstone you choose. If you are looking for a vintage inspired ring with heirloom touches, consider a ring with rubies or emeralds. For something more bold and unique, how about the purple amethyst or bright yellow diamonds? Or if you prefer something elegant and understated but with that extra touch of colour, the morganite or pearl ring might be your option. Have a look at each of the stunning gemstone options below and let us know which is your favourite!
