Like what my friends and I always say, nothing is ever set in stone unless there’s an actual stone shimmering on your finger. A proposal is a momentous moment in a woman’s life. While in a steady and loving relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend, you know it is real when you are not afraid to talk about what future beholds for both of you. Oftentimes, women have something set in stone in their heads about the perfect, yet unique engagement rings once their beau pops that exciting, yes nervously scary question, “will you marry me?”
While engagement rings still traditionally must include a stone in there somewhere – the ring must be three times the man’s monthly salary – that embodies how they see their future wife (if they say yes, of course). Thankfully, there are different stones aside from diamonds that can still melt your woman’s heart. You can actually consider giving her birthstone as an engagement ring or other non diamond engagement rings that is reminiscent of your past memories. Here’s how to make these unique engagement ring a sure yes once you ask her to marry you.
If not diamonds, try topaz
In Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asian book trilogy, the main character Nicholas Young was planning to propose to her then-girlfriend, Rachel Chu, with a yellow topaz engagement ring. While the said precious stone is not exactly considered as non traditional engagement rings, you can consider other colors of topaz that truly fits your soon-to-be wife’s personality. You can choose from these beautiful rings:

Moonstone is a sodium potassium aluminum silicate that looks smooth with a bit of roughness in its façade. They’re unusual engagement rings that are fit for women who do not want to conform with society’s impression of what engagement rings should be like. Furthermore, they look adorable and special because they are totally unexpected! They are usually yellow, grey, white, brown, pink, green, purple, and orange.
There are different birthstones for every birth month. Garnet in for January while Amethyst is for February, and Aquamarine, Diamond, Emerald, Pearl, Ruby, Peridot, Sapphire, Opal, Topaz, and Turquoise are for March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, and December, respectively. At this point, you probably know the birthday of your beau and if you are torn on what kind of stone you want to give her, just go to back to the day she was born. You can even put yours and her birthstone in one ring if you are feeling sentimental. Below are some unique engagement rings with birthstones.
