Diamonds may be traditional when it comes to engagements, but their price tags can be steep. You’re an original, so why follow the pack? Lots of celebrities are opting for non-diamond rings as well. Jessica Simpson sports a ruby ring and Halle Berry rocks an emerald set in gold. Kate Middleton hand carries the most famous sapphire engagement ring on the planet, which was once owned by Princess Diana. If colored gems are good enough for a princess, they’re good enough for you.
