Alternative Engagement Rings by Top Designer Tacori

Alternative Engagement Rings

If you're like me, you'll look at your engagement ring for the rest of your life. Literally. There it will be as your hands rest on your keyboard, day in and day out. It will be your constant companion. And sometimes, when you least expect it, and when you're not looking, that diamond will throw light and sparkles around the room as it catches the sun light and you'll be absolutely delighted. It's a wonderful feeling.

For many of you, buying your engagement ring will be one of the most important decisions you make. You think it's your dress, but it's not. (Hint: you'll only wear that for a day.) And because you're mountain girls, and you love and appreciate a somewhat alternative lifestyle, many of you are looking for an engagement ring that makes a statement and shows your love of adventure.

I can't think of a more stylish line of engagement rings than Tacori, and JR Dunn Jewelers specializes in TACORI Engagement Rings. There are two styles engagement rings that have me going absolutely gaga. Both are cool and original, but retain classic and elegant details.

Black Diamond Engagement Rings

This is going to be a conversation starter for the rest of your life. The 2561 Setting is a platinum ring with a gorgeous 1 carat black diamond set in 18kt carat rose gold. The effect is stunning. The black diamond makes this ring modern and cutting edge but the round cut and four prong setting make it a classic that will never go out of style. And the rose gold is all Girly-girl! What a perfect combo for the adventure-loving mountain bride who wants something a bit different but still demands classic and elegant features!

Sapphire Engagement Rings

Ever since Wills slipped his Mum's ring onto Kate Middleton's finger, I've been obsessed with Sapphire Engagement Rings. Not only are sapphire engagement rings beautiful, elegant, and a bit different from traditional diamond engagement rings, they also lend a vintage flare. Here's a bit of a history lesson for you. Diamond rings didn't become a popular engagement ring until the late 1940s. Before that, engagement rings could be made of any precious gem. So if your looking for vintage inspired engagement rings, think color and precious gems.

These alternative engagement rings have been picked up by Penelope Cruz, Elizabeth Hurley, Heather Mills and Jodie Sweetin. And although blue sapphire rings are the most well-known, sapphires also come in a variety of colors, including pink and white sapphires as well as shades of black and gray.
