Rubies: One of the most coveted gemstones are rubies. They represent the color of love and heart. “Pigeon blood red,” a slightly purplish red with a medium-dark tone and vivid saturation, is the most wanted after ruby color. Ruby’s durability, rarity, and associations with love make it a fitting though expensive choice for engagement rings.
Colored Diamonds: Diamonds are forever indeed. But a colored diamond can stand out even more! Remember Jennifer Lopez’s yellow diamond ring? Yup! People still do. Roughly 1 in 10,000 diamonds exhibit natural color. Those with the most intense colors are prized more profoundly and, thus, cost more. Colored diamond options include bold canary yellow, sparkling pink, pastel green, eye-catching black, and champagne. Pink diamonds rank among the most expensive.
2. Meteorite Rings

Frankly, your ring will be ‘out of this world’ – no pun intended. Meteorite Rings are considered more of an environmentally friendly option and assure cruelty-free sourcing until some Aliens come calling! Ha! You are safe. What can more convey your love than something that came from outer space – literally to the moon and back
3. Minimalist Rings
Sometimes, less is more when it comes to engagement rings. Brides who don’t like too showy and pomp stuff prefer the minimalist way. Delicate ring makes a statement nonetheless, and it’s often a more romantic declaration of love because they depict sweetness. From dainty-banded solitaires to unique cuts and colors, they come in all. Minimalist rings pair well with wedding bands for a more ‘stackable’ appearance without looking too bulky.
4. Vintage-Inspired Designs
Ever coveted a ring right out of history? A ring of the great kings? Some history attached to it? Though it’s tough and expensive to give such historical heirlooms for as engagement rings (until you have that kind of money) Take a hint from antique-inspired trends and consider a ring with Victorian or art deco feel. Who wouldn’t love an engagement ring with an heirloom quality—it’s both desirable and timeless.
5. Stacking Bands
Stackable bands are the coolest because they are so easy to customize. Pile it up however you like. You can add a different band for each milestone – think 10th anniversary, 25th, and so on, that will make a super cute story for your grandkids. It can also be easily split to be ‘passed down the generations’
No matter which ring you choose, it should tell a story – your story.
