damn that is amazing! I didn’t even have an engagement ring, so that is different, lol. We were super broke and he couldn’t buy one, but no worries. Definitely shows I’m not a golddigger! lol

Your ring is gorgeous! I opted for a non-diamond engagement ring as well. I think engagement rings should be as unique as the couple.

You two have SUCH beautiful rings!  I don’t have a good picture of mine, but the center stone is a Montana sapphire, mined less than ten miles from the house we bought together.  We lucked out when we bought it – based on appearances only, I decided that I liked Montana sapphires more than Yogo sapphires, without even knowing the price difference between the two.  It turns out that Yogos are more rare than diamonds, and I unintentionally saved my Fiance a bunch of money!

I think it is the best of the best! Would not change my tanzanite for a diamond.

Your rings are all so gorgeous!  I’m in the market for a non-diamond engagement ring, so I would love to know where all of your rings came from.  Would you mind giving the source (the jeweler or other vendor) of your rings?  Thank you!

Loving that aquamarine, Mine is all diamonds but if I had to choose I would have had an aquamarine in mine.  But Fiance chose it with all diamonds so I can’t fault him for that since I didn’t really make it known that I wanted a colored stone

I have a fancy yellow diamond, so that sort of counts!

I loooooooooooove non-diamond engagement rings. When my fiancee (now husband) and I first started talking about getting married, I had NO IDEA that anyone ever did anything other than diamond. When I started reading Weddingbee, I realized lots of people did it! Had I known, I probably would have talked up a different stone, because I think they are so beautiful and unique, even though I love my diamond solitaire. Plus you can get a bigger ring with more bling (hehehe)!

I love non-diamond engagment rings!! Honestly I would have killed for a big beautiful pearl ring! A girl I work with has a beautiful green stone (light green….not an emerald….amythst (sp?) maybe) surrounded by diamonds. I don’t understand the flack you all get. I’m hoping to get a wedding band with tanzanite in it (I love your ring daniela). Not to knock my ring…cause it’s flawless and gorgeous….but I wouldn’t have been upset if it looked like any of yours!

Here’s mine. One is my actual ring and the other is the one it’s based on. The side stones are iolites, and they just don’t take flash that well, although they are beautiful in natural light, which is why I include the pic of the other ring.

Here’s mine next to a friend’s that got engaged a few weeks later.  Obv mine is the one on the right!  It’s aquamarine (I think 1.3 carat) with 10 small diamonds, and past the diamonds there’s an awesome filigree design.  Fiance picked it out "himself" (I gave him a LOT of pics to go on) but it was a custom design and I LOVE IT!!  I’ve never gotten anything but positive comments though.  And I love that it allows me to have blue details in my dress and jewelry that totally coordinate!
