Diamonds are no longer the only choice for an engagement ring. Precious and semi-precious gemstones became increasingly popular as a stone of choice for nontraditional wedding and engagement rings. Today, more and more celebrities choose precious gemstones such as sapphires, ruby, or emerald as the centerpiece to their engagement rings. Prince William proposed to Duchess Middleton with a sapphire ring, Jessica Simpson wears a stunning ruby, and Jackie Kennedy had a beautiful emerald.
According to some historians wedding bands date back to the Egyptian civilization where simple rings made out of river reeds and grass were woven together and exchanged by the married couple on their wedding day to celebrate eternal love.
The time has come. You are ready to propose marriage to the love of your life and you need a ring. Where do you start? How do you pick the right one? What if she hates it? Should you let her design her own, pick one yourself, or ask her friends about her dream ring? What if they tip her off and it will no longer be a surprise? Should you even bother surprising her? This guide will help you answer these questions and help you find the right ring, for the right price without breaking the bank.
