Sparkly diamond solitaires on white gold bands are gorgeous,  (opens in new tab)but they're not always to everyone's taste. And if you're on the hunt for an engagement ring from another era or featuring a different stone, (opens in new tab) may I suggest starting with a quick browse on Etsy? The marketplace offers jewelry featuring black diamonds and pearls, moissanite and topaz, and more. The options are endless and one-of-a-kind (most are handmade and offered in limited quantities). The seller might be from Ohio, or your ring could just as easily be shipped from New Zealand. Regardless, vintage and non-traditional engagement rings are abundant on Etsy. Purchase one of the rings ahead or use this as a jumping-off point to create something that's uniquely you.
