Why look for an alternative for engagement rings?

There are many reasons for choosing an alternative to the engagement ring. Not everyone likes wearing rings. In some industries, such as the healthcare and hospitality sectors, wearing jewellery is even not allowed for certain activities. You often put rings away when you have a baby around, too, to avoid accidentally harming the little one. Another common reason is sensitive skin, although in this case you could also opt for an engagement ring made of hypoallergenic platinum.

You should be aware that platinum is rarer and therefore more expensive than gold. Your choice will therefore partly depend on your budget for her engagement ring. If you prefer an engagement ring alternative, then you are also saving yourself the trouble of having to find out her ring size without her knowing.

Some people hear much better when you hang a pair of diamond earrings from their ears.

What would be a nice alternative for her?

You certainly wouldn't be the first man to buy an alternative to the engagement ring. In 1953, John F. Kennedy gave his beloved Jackie a gorgeous engagement bracelet. One elegant choice is the close-fitting tennis bracelet, with fine links and diamonds in a beautiful, symmetrical design. A beautiful wedding-day accessory at the same time, too! You could also, of course, go for a sleek gold bracelet and have it engraved for your engagement.
And what if you bought an engagement ring for her, rather than an alternative, but added a gold necklace to it? This means she could wear your ring loose, but close to her heart.
