3 Sizzling Stones to Rock Your Engagement Ring

Been living under a rock? Gone are the days when a diamond was the only choice for that engagement ring sparkle. The stone game has changed – thankfully for the better. So, let’s dive into the top three rockstars for that soon-to-be-Instagrammed ring finger.

Diamonds: Still a Girl's Best Friend?

Ah, diamonds. The timeless go-to for engagement bling. Scoring a perfect 10 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale, they’re tough enough for all the hand-waving you’ll be doing to show off your ring. And while the classic round brilliant cut is everyone’s darling, why not flirt with shapes like squares, ovals, or even hearts?

But wait, there’s more! Coloured diamonds toss a spectrum of sass into the mix. From budget-friendly champagne to those oh-so-coveted pink and blue hues, diamonds can also show more true colours. And for those chasing the unicorn kinds – purple, red, or green – brace your wallets, they’re as rare as they are stunning.

Leaning eco-friendly? Lab-grown diamonds are your match. Identical twins to their mined siblings, but without the hefty price tag or environmental tug.

Sapphires: A Splash of Colour

Diamonds, step aside. Sapphires are stepping up, bringing a durability game just a smidge below, with a Moh’s score of 9. Plus, they’re less chippy and more snappy than diamonds, thanks to their cleavage resistance (and we’re not talking fashion faux pas here).

From the deep blues to mesmerising teals, sapphires are not just a stone; they’re a statement. And yes, the red ones are playing in the ruby league. Opting for a sapphire means never running into someone with the exact same ring – each stone is as unique as your love story.

Keen on keeping it local and transparent? Australian sapphires are your ethical, traceable choice, showcasing that beauty can be homegrown.

Moissanite: The Underdog with an Overbite

Forget those diamond dupes of the past. Moissanite is the real MVP here. Nudging close to diamond durability with a 9.25 on the hardness scale, it’s perfect for daily dazzle. What sets moissanite apart? It’s all about the fire – those rainbow flashes that outshine even diamonds.

Lab-grown, because finding natural moissanite is like stumbling upon an IRL hidden treasure, it’s the go-to for big looks without the big dent in your wallet. Plus, it’s a nod to those seeking ethical alternatives to mined stones.

So, The Verdict?

Your ring, your rules. There are no wrong answers. Whether it’s the timeless elegance of diamonds, the unique allure of sapphires, or the brilliant budget-friendly moissanite, there’s a stone out there that screams “you”.
