As the owners of a website that offers fine, gold, designer handcrafted jewelry, and specializing in bridal selections, we’ve noticed an interesting trend amongst our customers. It seems that as soon as some engaged couples are buying engagement ring birthstone of the bride-to-be. The most popular choices in recent times has been the jewel in the center, flanked by diamonds on either side, such as the Non traditional engagement rings three stone ring, or emerald diamond three stone ring, as well as ruby diamond three stone ring.
It is an interesting phenomenon, and I was surprised myself when I got my first call from a woman on the west coast asking to buy gemstone ring as her engagement ring. I realize now that even though diamonds are the most popular pearls wedding and engagement jewelry, Non traditional engagement rings are increasing in popularity for women for several reasons. First of all, some people will always do things differently than others, they pride themselves on doing things the mainstream, and marching to their own drummer. What nicer way to make a statement on the uniqueness of the birthstone ring engagement ring? Second, the birthstone ring may cost much less than traditional diamond rings, because many birthstones are semi-precious gemstones, which is usually lower, because they are less rare. And finally, some women find the birthstone ring just layered with symbolism and emotion.
The easiest choice for Non traditional engagement rings is to use the bride’s birthstone. You can use the birthstone as an alternative center stone instead of the traditional diamond. In regards to using birthstones in engagement rings, it is important to keep in mind the fragility of certain gems. For example, when sapphire is very suitable for use in binding stone, because of its durability, it is Tanzanite opal, or not. It is something to consider, unless of course you will not be wearing an engagement ring every day. If life is what you are looking for in your birthstone engagement ring, try to choose a gem that resists wear usually associated with an engagement ring.
