Diamonds might be a girl’s best friend (it’s debatable), but how about an alternative to the diamond engagement ring?
Event Plan-It has put together a list of the most creative alternatives to a diamond engagement ring for any couple looking to pop the question with style and originality. Your ring symbolizes your connection as a couple and your commitment to one another. If you feel your love is unique (what couple doesn’t?) and the conventional diamond just doesn’t appeal to you, here are some alternatives that are both meaningful and eye-catching.
The rings featured are all offered by Etsy sellers (a treasure trove of all things crafty and artisanal), and range in price from affordable to investment. Whatever your budget, these beautifully designed rings will help you seal the deal or spark the imagination.
