A distant acquaintance of mine received a “respect ring” for her engagement.  The ring was made up of a ruby, emerald, sapphire, peridot, emerald, citrine and tanzanite stone, which together in that sequence spells “RESPECT” (if you take the first letter of each stone). Apparently was a popular kind of ring in the Victorian era and she was big on that.

I don’t have a picture unfortunately, but I bet it looked very unique and non traditional.

Here’s mine. I’m newly engaged, barely a month in and I’ve already gotten a very rude comment about it not being a diamond. I didn’t want a diamond I wanted something unqiue . Mine is a 3.5 carat peachy pink spinel in rose gold, and to me it couldn’t be more perfect.

Girls, I do have something a bit more traditional, and even then you get the rude comments! MY Fiance was talking about my ring to my bro’s girlfriend, and she made a face like she smelled something bad and said “Yeah.. that bling thing you mean right?”

Knowing this .. chick, she was trying to get Fiance or me down about it.

It didn’t even slightly upset me. If that’s all she has to say about it, her opinion just went down on my list of important opinions 😀

And comments like that shouldn’t upset any of you! It just says so much about the people making these comments. It could be jealousy, it could be not being able to think outside the box. Hell, I don’t even know! 

I love that we’re in a time where there’s so much possible and we’re all able to shine in our own way.

Rock that non-traditional bling ladies!

I love all these rings. It gets really boring seeing the same couple styles of plain diamond engagement rings over and over again. I’ve personally only ever gotten compliments on my untraditional ring.. Who are these jerks who are telling other women they don’t like their rings? What happened to ‘if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all’?

So many beautiful rings!  

Mine is also different from the traditional. 

Champagne diamond in 18k yellow gold bezel setting with colourless diamond halo. My own design and I love it!

ikuyo:  Haha I totally agree! Sneering at others symbols of love and commitment is way tackier than not choosing a diamond as said symbol. . .

We decided right away that we wanted a non traditional stone. I never particularly loved garnets but when i tried mine on I fell in love. (Managed to sneak some diamonds in there too)
