Alternative Engagement Rings have become vastly more popular in recent years! Many couples are choosing not only to pick out these commitment symbols together, but are choosing to step away from the traditional ‚Äėa diamond is forever‚Äô outlook. Natural gemstones have taken over the engagement jewelry circuit and the most popular alternative stone is the Emerald.

The big question is, WHY?


The greatest attribute to this alternative gemstone is its ethical origins and mining! Our Emeralds are strenuously (I think this word is confusing) sourced through suppliers who go to mines, most notably in Australia, to oversee the process of mining this rare stone. The ethical mining procedures create a conflict free setting where the Emeralds can be well distributed.

Having an ethical engagement ring is often sought after and that makes the Emerald the perfect alternative ring!

Exciting and Unique

The Emerald can come in a variety of shades, which gives the wearer of the ring a personalization choice! This choice is most exciting because of the lifelong commitment to the ring.

The natural inclusions of the Emerald also create a unique style choice. Many will look at an Emerald and think it is vintage in appearance because of these inclusions. The ‚Äėveins‚Äô of the stone are so varied that it makes it impossible to have two stones be alike!¬†

Fun Fact: Emeralds are more rare than a diamond, but they are actually more affordable! 

This makes for the perfect engagement ring! A rare stone that is completely unique to the wearer is already a steal, but having that stone be affordable gives the average person the ability to have beautiful pieces.

Emeralds and Relationships

Emeralds are known to symbolize fidelity, romance, and love. An Emerald engagement ring is a sign of a deep mature love that will bring about a happy, but unique commitment. 

Not only does the stone symbolize a great commitment, but the color of this stone represents new beginnings in love and in life. The green of the Emerald energies the connection deep between partners.
