LiebeLicht:  What about a lightly pink diamond/moissanite/sapphire/etc? That would look beautiful with rose gold!! I love ovals in pink too!

If you don’t like anything you see out there, and since you mention that budget is not an issue, maybe you can try designing your own? There are some jewerly sites out there that let you design your own rings mixing all kinds of different settings, metals, and stones, and the cool thing is that you can see an image of how it would look, so you can decide if you like it or not. I got my Ering from Gemvara, and couldn’t recommend them enough. So try something like that, maybe you’ll find one both you and your boyfriend love!! Good luck!!

LiebeLicht:  What about something like this:

White sapphire is rose gold. Not a diamond, not traditional, but still a solitaire.

LiebeLicht:  I agree with playdohpants! Morganite is gorgeous and looks fantasic in rose gold. There are also pink sapphires that look wonderful. 

There are a lot of unique morganite engagement rings on etsy and they are all so beautiful. But if all else fails there are moissanite, the regular moossanite has just enough warmth and I think it compliments rose gold well. Or if you want to go traditional without the diamond white sapphires are also very unique, affordable and gorgeous! 

Move seen moissanits and white sapphire in person and I honestly couldn’t tell they weren’t diamonds at first, but once you know they aren’t I swear they look more beautiful looking at the different qualities of each gem.

Good luck!

LiebeLicht:  this is one of my favorite morganite rings. It’s really unique in the way it’s set and the band is really original.

Although I love rose gold and morganite (I even have a set that’s just like that) I’ll give you my take on rings that you plan to wear for a loooong time (barring losses, thefts, misplacements, etc.). It needs to be something that you absolutely LOVE. And yes, of course the meaning of the ring is more important than the actual ring; and of course it’s important that he likes what he gives you. However, it’s also really very important that you look down at your hand and get little shivers of excitement. 🙂

If diamond solitaires are what make your heart speed up, they’re what you notice and love on other women, you find yourself stalking the WB ring boards for them, and almost every one you see you’re like “ooooooooooooh” then you should have one. If your FI loves unconventional rings then that’s the kind of ring HE needs so he can get little shivers of excitement and contentment when he looks down at his ring. 

I recommend you sit down with him and tell each other what you really like and what you really want and then go from there. I’ll tell you my story. I wanted a rose gold morganite and diamond halo ring. But my then SO (now DH) thought halos looks like “flying saucers” so he bought a rose gold w morganite bezel. He didn’t think that looked like an ering so he also bought me a platinum and diamond solitaire cuz to him the metal is what’s important in a ring. To me, it’s the whole design. While I wear both sets with love and pride my heart yearns for something else and my husband knows it. Then came the time for wbands. I wanted something that wasn’t your “average” plain wedding band so I bought faceted rings (mine rose gold, his palladium) and it turned out that HE wanted a plain platinum band…long story short neither one of us got what we really wanted the first time around. we’ve talked about it, we’ve laughed our asses off and it’s something that we’re willing to fix so that we’re both happy with what we wear. Long story made short…bc we have such different tastes it’s been a clusterf*k getting our rings to adequately match our unique personalities and tastes. All of it could’ve been avoided if we had each talked about and respected what we each wanted from the beginning. Good luck OP!

My husband and I were exactly the same! I wanted a round solitaire, he wanted something that ‘wasn’t boring’. After LOTS of too and fro, and hours of me trying on different styles, we decided on an oval moissanite. He loves it because of the history and science focus (we’re both scientists), and I love it because it has a gorgeous rainbow sparkle but is still a clear/white stone.

Don’t lose hope! There will be a ring out there for you!

Morganite and rose gold are a match made in heaven. That morganite oval ring posted by mggBoyles is to die for! What a stunner.  The set that playdohpants posted is also absolutely gorgous and screams engagement ring, not RHR.  Would you consider a few diamonds in the band to lighten the look? 

Could you compromise though – tell him that the the overall set needs to be considered. The e-ring needs to be what makes your heart sing and get the diamond solitaire you want, but let him choose ornate rose gold wedding rings. Remind him that a soliatire goes with everything so he can go to town on the wedding rings. Or else the moissanite route is a great alternative.  

Here’s some other morganite/rose gold e-rings I think are gorgous, and a little unusual.  

Keep looking, there is sure to be something beautiful out there that makes you both happy.

LiebeLicht: Reading your post I was immediately reminded of a store I stalk on etsy called ‘winged lion’ they do many amazing but ‘out there’ designs unlike anything I’ve seen around, both solitaires and halos. They seem to be open to using various colours of gold and different stones and many of their rings have a corresponding weddingband design that locks in neatly, so you can have all the style drama without the ‘oh no what about the band’ drama, quite a few even have a matching ‘masculine’ band.

Sometimes the perfect ring doesn’t exist until you commission it.

 

The top one is a personal favourite. So much drama! I bet it would be unbelievable in rose gold with a warm stone morganite, Moissanite, a
