What alternatives are there to a centre stone?

Would your intended prefer a non diamond engagement ring in the centre? Diamonds can be worked into the ring design more subtly, too. Just think of the eternity ring which owes its name to the diamonds set all round it, making them seem to run on for ever. Another option is an engagement ring where the diamonds are set on the ring band as well. Timeless and elegant on the one hand, and on the other, tougher than the classic engagement ring.

Men can also wear a ring such as this. Especially if you choose black diamonds. Perfect if you are looking for an engagement ring for both partners.

What alternatives are there to a diamond?

Every woman has her unique personality, style and taste. If she doesn't like diamonds, you don't necessarily have to look for an engagement ring with no gemstone. Surprise her with an engagement ring with some other fancy coloured gemstone. The finest alternatives are undoubtedly the red ruby, the blue sapphire and the green emerald. Perfect for  those women who love colour. Or for those women who prefer  a vintage engagement ring.
