Engagement rings that aren’t made with diamonds? Yes, you read that right! Brides today—or rather, their husbands to be—are stepping out of the “ring box,” so to speak. And they’re popping the question with bands featuring semi-precious gemstones that offer gorgeous color options to choose from and a range of price points for different budgets. We just love the idea!
So we’re continuing our series of posts on unique engagement rings (see the links at the end of this post) with a dazzling selection featuring 2 very popular pink-hued stones: Morganite and Rose Quartz! Come and see how these sweet blush gems go spectacular with multi-faceted cuts and glittery settings in rose gold (another hot trend for wedding jewelry). And in truth, you will still see diamonds incorporated in these ring designs!
Engagement Ring Trend: Morganite on Rose Gold
Morganite is actually the pink to orange-pink variety of the mineral known as beryl. Due to its slightly “salmon” tone, it is striking when set in a rose gold band. For a bit of trivia: Guess who this stone was named after? J.P. Morgan, one of the greatest financiers in history!

Engagement Ring Trend: Rose Quartz on Rose Gold
Right on trend as one of Pantone’s colors for 2016, rose quartz is classified as a semi-precious stone. It comes in soft blush pink tones with a milky translucency. It is also known as the “Love Stone,” said to be a high-energy mineral that has the power to nurture unconditional love. It is also the birthstone for November (suitors, take note)!
