Are you looking for a non-traditional engagement ring, one that isn’t necessarily a diamond? Perhaps it’s not even moissanite, or anything resembling a sparkly diamond? If you’re a bride who wants a unique style to wear every day that really emphasizes your one-of-a-kind personality, we vote for the latest trend: the pearl engagement ring.
Soon-to-be engaged couples aren’t just looking for pearls because they are an alternative and something different than a cookie-cutter diamond; couples are looking to the symbolism and what a pearl represents.
So, we asked our favorite search engine: what does pearl symbolize? And the results made it pretty obvious why people are selecting it as a centerpiece on the ring they’ll wear forever. A pearl is thought to attract good luck, wealth, and offer protection.
Pearls are also known to balance one’s karma, bring you a feeling of zen, and provide a calming effect.
And you know that wedding planning can get a bit stressful, so yay for all of those things!
In addition, the pearl is known as a sign of purity and represents loyalty by the wearer. A pearl costs significantly less than a diamond, so although people aren’t necessarily picking a pearl simply based on price, it is definitely a bonus to be such an affordable option. :)
Those are all very good reasons to choose a pearl engagement ring. Now that you know why, let’s check out some examples of beautiful engagement rings with pearls to give you inspiration when it comes to choosing yours. We found these rings at JewellRay, where Pina and Ilan offer a gorgeous collection.
