I’ve definitely seen some gorgeous non-diamond engagement rings on the hive.  I don’t have one myself, but I have been drooling over these gemstone engagement rings.  I think that the blue sapphire rings are my favorites.  Or maybe the pink sapphire ones.

I bet some of our fellow bees would love to show us their non-traditional engagement rings πŸ™‚

Here’s a pic of mine that I’m sure I’ve posted all over the bee. It’s a 2.5 t.w. carat yellow sapphire with a double halo of diamonds and yellow sapphires.

I always wanted a colored center stone and debated between a yellow and a peach sapphire. In the end, the yellow won out. My husband had it custom made on Etsy through LaurieSarah Designs and I couldn’t be happier. If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Just because an e-ring is non-traditional doesn’t mean it’s not “bling” not an expensive ring.  Maybe you want to get a simple band ring with a bezel set stone.  Check out etsy.  There are some really pretty rings on there.

@Wanderlusty:  Careful – by non-traditional I assume you mean not a diamond. Other gemstones are more delicate than diamonds so might not be suitable for a rough type of job.

I’d get a wedding band with some sparkle… maybe channel-set diamonds? The setting will better protect them. If you’re stuck on wanting something that looks like an e-ring, maybe a bezel setting is a good idea – it’ll also help protect the rock.

I’m not the flashiest person, and I like to be active. I didn’t want a ring that was huge, nor one that would be easily damaged or snag on things. I also wanted something affordable! 

This is basically what I got: http://www.etsy.com/listing/97552899/moissanite-bezel-set-cushion-solitaire?ga_search_query=moissanite&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_6407697

I got a narrower shank though. I wanted palladium because of the durability, and I wanted Moissanite because it was more cost effective, but still a nice clear sparkly stone. I also got the bezel setting to avoid snags and any damage to the stone. It has a lower setting too, so I will hopefully not bump it into anything! It can still fit a wedding band flush against it though. It fits everything I wanted!

It’s still somewhat traditional, but it breaks away with the Moissanite and also not having the standard prongs. I love it though. It’s clean, simple, and me.

Hi, I also like non-traditional e rings and wedding bands. I didn’t like diamond though. but like you, i’m kinda rough on things at times, so i picked sapphire (which is a pretty hard gem as well ) to be the stones on my ring. I wear them 24/7. They are comfortable to wear. I would wear them when I travel too! the sleleton setting makes it easy to clean. Hope that helps! 

Here are my e ring and wedding band. three stone style with eternity band. stones are natural vivid, eye cleanse, ceylon sapphires. wedding band was ordered from israel. πŸ™‚

@stephanie760330:  Your set is breathtaking! I love how deep the blue is without it looking black. Is there a special reason you picked sapphire? I like them because they are my husband’s birthstone πŸ™‚

@Bridey77:  Hi. Thank you! I picked sapphire was because of the meaning of it. Blue is my favorite color, and it is a hard gem. So as long as i keep it clean, it is pretty bling! Sapphire symbolizes wisdom, loyalty, protection, and spiritual insights. I happen to be a counselor so I mde it a constant reminder of the symbol of power and strength, but also of kindness and wise judgment. 

My husband’s birth stone is emerald. But I don’t like green πŸ˜€

@stephanie760330:  My birthstone is emerald. I actually love emeralds, and I wanted a couple’s ring with both. I love meaning behind it in relation to your being a counselor. Your set is really unique. Thanks for posting it.
