Just kidding! I wanted to get lots of you mamas in here.

I am curious as to how many of you would be willing to wear (or do wear) a wedding/engagement ring where the center stone is NOT a diamond.

If you do wear a non-diamond engagement ring, where did you or your SO buy it?

Feel free to post pics (and post anon if you want)!



EDIT:   I am not sure if I have actually offended anyone, but just for the record, I do NOT think anyone is cheap or tacky. The title name was just to get a bunch of people in here to reply :)

I hear ya! My original wedding rig started losing the diamonds in it (diamond chips actually so they are way tiny) and I just stopped wearing my ring.

:(

Looking for something else


Quoting Anonymous:

Diamonds aren't that great. I hate jewelry, don't have a wedding ring, but if I chose to the center stone would be a sapphire.

I would wear an expensive setting with a fake stone until an expensive diamond could also be bought.

I am by no means traditional, so I would love an alternate stone.

That's cool! We all have our own likes and dislikes.

my engagement ring is a real diamond but sometimes i wear another ring i have in place of my wedding rings because i want to.    for our 9th anniver.   dh bought me a massive princess diana style ring (sapphire surrounded by diamonds)  and i do get compliments when i wear it as my wedding ring.    why not - its been almost 10 years of wearing the same thing everyday - even if it is diamonds that gets boring to me.

Do you wear your ring all the time, or take it off for certain activities like showering and washing your hands etc.? I love opal!


Quoting Pink.Frosting:

My ring set as a large Opal in it - it's antique and a family heirloom.  I get compliments on it almost every single time I go out.  People love it and admire it's uniqueness.  Diamonds aren't the be all, end all.  There are tons of gorgeous stones out there.
