Known for their exquisite quality and craftmanship when creating the perfect piece for a bride-to-be, Valobra Master Jewelers also offers some of the most unique and stylish, non-diamond bridal jewelry. Though diamond engagement rings have long been a popular and standard choice for the bride-to-be, other precious gemstones may have found their way into her heart for her big day as something less traditional than the “norm”.


The good news is that it’s 2022, and an engagement ring can be anything one wants it to be! Bold colors, eclectic designs and even less traditional cuts are quickly becoming as popular as the ever-present diamond, and for more ideas and inspiration here are a few options you may fall in love with!

One need look no further than Princess Diana’s stunning sapphire engagement ring (now worn by Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge) to see that sapphires are just as lustrous and beautiful as diamonds. If you think sapphires only come in shades of blue, you’ll be delighted to learn that they can be a rainbow of colors, making it a great option for your non-diamond engagement ring.


The deep, mesmerizing green of an emerald is another stunning choice as an alternative to a diamond engagement ring. With its distinctive deep and earthy tones, emeralds are both vibrant and eye-catching. Coupled with white gold or yellow gold to bring out its natural hues, emerald is a fascinating option that’s sure to get a lot of comments and compliments!


The sharp, crimson hues of a ruby are a timeless choice that echo the fires of passion and everlasting love, making this gemstone an excellent option that ranks right alongside sapphires in terms of hardness (and one step below diamonds).


The choice of stone (or even the color of diamond!) for an engagement ring is a big decision, and many brides are opting for a special stone that reminds them of a favorite place or moment. Imagine choosing a clear blue aquamarine to remember the moment where he proposed to you on the beach or commemorating your wedding month with that month’s corresponding birthstone. The choices are endless!
