In a society that loves to push the boundaries of what was once normal, unconventional engagement jewelry is growing in popularity.  Although the timeless choice when presenting an engagement ring, beyond the diamond, there are several other options as well.  Precious stones, for example, can hold high degrees of brilliance and reflection, making them just as beautiful as diamonds.  Or, perhaps, you pair your diamond with stone accents.  Whatever the case may be, custom jewelry is an excellent way to express your love.  This article highlights a few stones you may consider when looking at engagement jewelry.
