Nowadays, the modern bride has several options when it comes to choosing engagement rings. Women who know that they’d rather not have a traditional ring should not be shy about letting their significant other know their preferences.
Sometimes a traditional solitaire ring can seem impractical, especially if it is to be worn daily. An increasingly popular non-traditional choice is the black diamond engagement ring. Black diamonds are diamonds that weigh a bit more than colorless diamonds. As the character Carrie Bradshaw from the show Sex and the City exemplified, black diamonds are an elegant choice for the non-traditional bride.
Adding gemstones to a band is an option if you would prefer not to wear the traditional diamond. Some of the stones that can be used are sapphires, rubies, and emeralds, and gemstones are a great way to add colour.
