Q: Can I get an engagement ring with a colored stone?

A: You can get an engagement ring with any stone you want - ruby, sapphire, emerald, opal or a pearl. Some brides-to-be have been seen sporting eternity bands as their engagement ring.

The best way to find the right engagement ring for you is to visit your local jeweler and try on different ring styles. In addition to colored stones, there are different cuts, carats, side stones and settings to choose from.

Once you know what you like, either hint to your fiancÚ what you want or have the jeweler take some notes so he or she can point your future groom in the right direction.
