Beautiful Alternatives To Diamond Rings

If you are looking for engagement rings, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a diamond ring. After all, we have all come to associate diamonds with this precious piece of jewelry. However, the truth is that this is just one of the many options that are available. Here are some alternatives that are worth considering:


1. A Knot – If your partner is someone who prefers classic and simple styles of jewelry, like that sold at Opals Australia, a knot engagement ring is ideal. It also has a beautiful meaning and aptly represents you and your partner tying the knot. This design is also a popular choice of a wedding ring as opposed to an engagement ring.

2. A Meaningful Gemstone – Instead of looking for diamond rings, why not select a gemstone that has a special meaning to you and your partner? It could be something that beautifully conveys the connection you share, or it could be a stone you know she adores. Here are some of the most breath-taking gemstones to consider:
I.    Agate – This gemstone represents strength, protection, and truth.
                      II. Apatite – Apatite boasts a beautiful meaning – a blend of the old and the new, while it is also a symbolization of communication, which is, of course, key in any marriage.
                    III. Aquamarine – Not only is aquamarine a striking shade of blue, but it is thought to provide protection and give people the courage to overcome fears.
                    IV. Blue Topaz – Blue topaz is associated with integrity, gentleness, friendship, and fidelity.
                     V. Garnet – Garnet is an alluring shade of red, which symbolizes devotion and passionate commitment.
                    VI. Onyx – Onyx is a gemstone that is associated with perseverance and determination. It is believed to deflect the negativity of others.
                  VII. Opal – Opal boasts a beautiful meaning; it is associated with spontaneity, creativity, inspiration, passion, and, most importantly, love.
                 VIII. Pearl – Pearls are ideal for women who like elegant and classic jewelry styles while they also symbol purity, harmony, and grace.
                    IX. Rose Quartz – This gemstone symbolizes calm, peace and gentle love. It is also thought to heal emotional wounds and remove negativity.
                     X. Ruby – Ruby is a stunning shade of red and is perfect for an engagement ring because it symbolizes love and the opening of the heart.
                    XI. Turquoise – If your partner is also your best friend, turquoise is a beautiful choice.

3. Family Heirloom – Perhaps you have a special ring or piece of jewelry that has been passed
down over the years? It could be the ring your father gave to your mother? Or, maybe it is a
beautiful necklace your grandfather gave your grandmother? If the ring does not fit your
girlfriend’s finger, you can always have it resized, and if the piece of jewelry is a necklace,
bracelet or pair of earrings, you can have the gemstones removed and put into a new setting.
