Should I buy a gemstone other than a diamond as an engagement ring?

Yes, you can definitely consider buying a gemstone other than a diamond as an engagement ring. In fact, many people are now opting for alternative gemstones as engagement rings for a variety of reasons, including a desire for a unique ring or personal preference for a specific gemstone. Some popular alternatives to diamonds for engagement rings include sapphires, rubies, aquamarines and alexandrites. Each gemstone has its own unique qualities and characteristics, so it’s important to do your research and choose a gemstone that fits your style, budget, and lifestyle. Keep in mind that while diamonds are typically known for their durability and hardness, other gemstones may not be as resilient and may require more careful handling and care. You should also consider the quality of the gemstone and ensure that it has been ethically sourced and certified by a reputable organisation. Ultimately, the decision to buy a gemstone other than a diamond as an engagement ring is a personal one and should be based on your individual preferences and values.
