There’s nothing more embarrassing than bumping into someone wearing your exact same outfit. Even though you only don a particular ensemble for a few hours, that time when you're an accidental twin can feel like an eternity. So, considering the mortification factor of that short-lived dilemma, why would you settle for an engagement ring that looks just like everyone else’s when it’s going to be on your finger forever?
One way to ensure your sparkler stands out: Opt for a colored gem or stone. Vibrant hues feel unexpected, and we guarantee you’re far less likely to come across a person sporting the same rock. Ahead, we rounded up a bevy of baubles just as gorgeous as your standard, white-diamond, ring-finger adornment. Click on to see the sapphires, emeralds, rubies, colored diamonds, and more asking for your hand. We think you’ll say yes.
