With that said, some of you have been dreaming of that flawless, 2+ carat diamond ring set in platinum and guaranteed forever. For those of you looking for something different though and not your standard clear, cut diamond set in gold or platinum there IS an alternative! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A huge trend now are colored gemstones. A few celebrities have spotted these rings like the Midnight Blue Sapphire stone the Duchess of Cambridge has, or Jessica Simpson's Blood Red Ruby engagement stone or remember J.Lo's Pretty Pink diamond when she was still with Ben Affleck? There are soooo many options out there from rubies, amethysts, aquamarines, peridots, to gorgeous moisannite, morganite and iolite stones in peach and pink hues and even diamonds are now trending in chocolate, black, yellow, pink and even blue colors. I mean the possibilities are totally endless! So if you are the kind of girl who loves to break tradition, one of these rings may be the one for you!
