I have an emerald cut blue sapphire. It was actually my second choice. I told him I wanted an emerald cut emerald but if he couldn't find one he liked (a good sized emerald with good enough color for the emerald cut is expensive) I'd be happy with a sapphire. My old boss actually talked him into the sapphire cause it's hard than an emerald and less likely to chip. He actually bought my ring at the store I work at from my old boss (he got promoted) November of 2009 and didn't propose til our 1 year anniversary in March 19th (I'd started working there March 5th). My boss and coworkers had the hardest time keeping that from me.

Mine is a 3 carat green amethyst with four tiny diamond accents. I knew I didn't want a diamond, my mom revived a sapphire form my dad so I guess its not a bit of a tradition! Plus, I love the light green!!

I have a 4.76 carat, natural (unheated) yellow sapphire, cushion cut. I'm pretty picky about my jewelry, so my fiance and I designed it. Set in 18k white gold with four round diamonds on each side, and the sapphire is set in an 18k yellow gold gallery to blend with the color of the stone. I LOVE it, and really enjoy having a flash of color on my hand. Diamonds are gorgeous, but so are lots of other stones!

Mine is a solid gold band with a claddagh in the middle and an Irish knot work on the sides. I have never seen anything like it, and absolutely love it. My son helped my Fiance pick it out and they both did a wonderful job.

I'm trying not to hint at my sweetheart, and I'll be extremely happy with any ring, but I would so love a dark blue sapphire instead of a diamond! <3

I know a lot of girls that have non-diamond engagement rings. There are a lot of options out there (i.e. sapphires, rubies, emeralds, topaz, etc.). Also in this category are man made diamonds or diamond simulants. Either way, it is the thought and sentiment that is more important.

One of the best tips I've had is to pick your setting first--you know, your DREAM setting--and then see what you can afford for the stone. You can always change out and upgrade the stone, but the setting stays with you forever (hopefully).

I love the idea of a non-diamond engagement ring.
