My bf and I are getting married October 18, 2014. We are both grown, he’s 37, I’m 41, we have been together a little over 7 years. This will be our first time getting married for both of us. We are having a traditional Catholic Ceremony. We have been ring shopping various times and I have not yet fell in love with any diamond ring. In my hunt I came across a rose gold morganite cushion cut ring I really really love. Is it a big deal if I don’t get a diamond ring?

@ss1gina: Heck no!!! There are some stunning diamond alternatives out there! If I had known more about moissy, I would’ve asked for one. I still don’t have my ring yet but I know he already bought it and it is a diamond. Post pics when you get it!

I’m in love with the rose gold with Morganite! I never wanted a diamond either, they just aren’t me, so I didn’t get one.

Of course it’s wrong! Didn’t you know that only 100% natural diamonds are magical enough to create true love? If you don’t have a natural diamond, your relationship is a sham!
Obviously I’m not being serious and only crazy people think that. 😉 Rock whatever ring you like best. Rose gold and morganite is an awesome combination.

@ss1gina: Nope. Here is my wife’s ring, which I had custom made based on the ring she described about 19 seconds after we met.

Everyone’s going to say the same thing! 🙂 There is absolutely 100% nothing at all wrong or weird about not having a diamond on your ring. It is the diamond sellers who have created the flimsy illusion that engagement rings must include a diamond. More and more people are getting non-diamond rings these days. I personally have a moissanite that everyone believes is a diamond unless the topic happens to come up at which point I correct them. I love love love colored stones as well and seriously considered a peach-champagne sapphire.

First: there is NOTHING WRONG with not wanting a diamond.
Second: if I had had my say that’s exactly the ring I would have gotten (rose gold and morganite!) It’s beautiful!
