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. Weddings are stressful enough with the multitude of decisions that have to be made but choosing a ring should be a choice that doesn’t involve compromise.
A helpful suggestion for women who know they are soon to get engaged is for them to drop helpful hints to their significant others. If wedding ring shopping is stressful for the husband-to-be suggest going shopping for the ring together.
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. Although they lack the sparkle of colorless diamonds, black diamonds are still highly reflective. 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 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 color.
Other options to consider include perhaps going for a band instead of a diamond, choosing a less precious stone, or even designing your own ring.
With all the options for rings today, the modern bride can have the engagement rings that represents who she is and her personal tastes.
