One trend that I would love to see more of is the non-diamond engagement ring! Some girls dream of that perfect diamond for a long time – and some girls don’t.
I was one of those girls that didn’t.
If you have seen my wedding pictures, than you know that I love hot pink. (And this is also obviously reflected on this blog). So I knew for a while that when it came time to send my boyfriend some friendly ring ideas (let’s face it, I am way too much of a control freak to be completely surprised), I would be sending him pictures of pink tourmaline stones and pink sapphires. I also had a big issue with the cost of a diamond – but I will stay off my soapbox on that one!
At any rate, I just love seeing other brides that choose the non-diamond approach and wanted to share some of the ones I have found for some funky alternative engagement ring inspiration! Enjoy.
