    I have a non-traditional ring and I love it to death…if I couldn’t have a good 5 carat diamond then I didn’t want one…and we’re not that well off so I wasn’t getting that!

    I love amethyst and would love it as an engagement ring (then again at this point I’d take scrunched up tinfoil–not even shiny side out). I can see precious stones other than diamonds gaining popularity presently. Aside from being more affordable (which is always a great thing), they can have a special meaning to the engaged couple and allow brides to express individuality with color if they like.

    I love it. I definitely don’t think that an e-ring has to be a diamond. My only question would be, how will you get a wedding band on with it? Is the setting high?

    P.S. My dad’s family has an old bishops ring as the family engagement ring.  I believe it’s a 3+ carat amethyst with a wide gold band.  It’s beautiful!

    I have a non-diamond engagement ring, because, well, it was my dream ring and I adore it. 🙂

    Oh my goodness that ring is gorgeous!! I fluctuate between the “different” rings and a solitaire! It’s awful being indecisive!! Guess I’ll love whatever Cam gives me, though!

    Yes!  I have a sapphire engagement ring, I love it!  No offense meant to anyone, but I think diamonds are kinda boring and I want some color in mine.
