The following are rings that are in our current inventory which we suggest to those that are seeking an alternative to the traditional diamond center-stone style of engagement ring. Some take a dinner ring format or have non-diamond stones that have color, yet are durable enough of gems to withstand the test of time. Throughout our store and website you will find rings of all sorts, and you might fall in love with one stone in particular, but please keep in mind that colored stones are softer than diamonds. A stone's durability is measured by a scale called the Moh's scale. We suggest a stone with a 9 or higher on that scale which is specifically diamond (10) and the corundums (9) which consist of sapphires of all colors and ruby which is a red sapphire.
