Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. No doubt about it. Marilyn said so!
But… Most of us have more than one friend, right?
Many consumers now seek other options to fulfill their engagement ring dream and we are here to tell you about three alternatives you can explore, that are ethical and eco-friendly as well as have a lower price tag than natural diamonds.
Moissanite Engagement Ring
If you want the classy-diamond-ring look on your engagement ring, let us introduce you to the Moissanite stone. A stone that looks and feels exactly like a diamond, in a fraction of the cost and with no conflicts attached!
This precious stone was discovered back in 1893 by French chemist Henri Moissan, as he was examining mineral samples from a meteor crater. This is why moissanite is also known as “a gem born of the stars” and who can say “I don’t” to that?! Moissanite can be up to 90% less expensive per carat than a diamond of the same size, so you can allow yourself to go bigger on the stone and the ring design in your engagement ring.

Gemstone Engagement Ring
For a more colorful, modern, and unique style, the gemstone engagement ring could be the one!
Sapphire, Ruby or Emerald, all are dazzling alternatives for diamonds. In a clear stone that looks just like a diamond, or in one of multiple color options and shapes. Every gemstone also has an ancient meaning, power, or belief attached to it, helping you to pick the gemstone that matched perfectly to your love story, your individual personality, or your magical future together.
