Wedding rings have been a prominent tradition in society ever since the dawn of western civilization. Although diamonds will likely always be one of the hottest numbers when it comes to antique engagement rings, there are some new trends in the mix that might just sweep your lady off her feet if you’re thinking about tying the knot.
According to LA Times, one of the most popular emerging trends of 2012 is sapphire engagement rings, and the buzz definitely won’t stop with Kate Middleton, who wears Princess Diana's eye-catching sapphire piece. These items are typically infused with either white gold or platinum, which provides an ideal complement to the deep blue of the colored gemstone.
"You can wear sapphire blue every day," Douglas Kazanjian, CEO of Kazanjian Bros., told the news source. "And you won’t have to worry about it clashing with what you’re wearing."
With this in mind, you might want to consider endowing your lucky fiancée with a lavish sapphire Tiffany engagement piece instead of looking into antique diamond engagement rings. Not only can these colored gemstones be more unique, but they can also come at a reasonable price.
