In recent years, more and more people are deciding that traditional engagement rings just aren’t what they’re looking for. As a result, there has been a surge in designer rings, custom bands and even a mixing of colors to allow for a more attractive ring. However, most of the custom bands and custom color combinations have a tendency to be much more expensive than their more traditional counterparts and are often out of reach for the vast majority of people.
Thankfully, there is a way to incorporate some beautiful colors in with the engagement ring without breaking the bank. A trend that is gaining in popularity is to use colored stones in the ring that aren’t diamonds. This allows for more vibrant colors and a more customized look without the worry of what you’ll have to pay for the same quality of diamond. The best stone, in many opinions, is the sapphire.
Sapphire and diamond engagement rings are great because the sapphire can come in a variety of colors from pale pinks to vibrant blues and everything in between. It also has the advantage of being worked with more than other stones which creates more products and styles to choose from. The best places to start looking for a sapphire and diamond engagement ring are at local jewelry stores. Here they will be able to help you find the style and color combination that you want. From there it would be a good idea to check out online dealers like Blue Nile to see what the price range on your ring will be.
