8 Sapphire Engagement Rings Just as Beautiful as Diamonds

While you may already have an engagement ring, perhaps you have a friend who is looking at rings or you know someone who is thinking about popping the question — so this one’s for them! Feel free to subscribe and pass it on!

We know that diamonds are known as a girl’s best friend, but sapphire engagement rings (along with other diamond alternatives) are emerging as a new trend. In fact, I know a handful of newly engaged ladies who are sporting non-diamond rings including sapphires, emeralds, and pearls. This proves that rings are never one-style-fits-all: the ring you select should reflect the ring recipient’s unique style! Today we’re inspiring you with our favorite sapphire engagement rings in sparkling shades of blue. These rings can also double as your “Something Blue”, so, hey, another thing to cross off that never-ending list. :)

Which of these (all handmade, of course) engagement rings is your favorite?
