    Ring Trend 3: Colorful Diamonds and Gems

    If you're looking to go the nontraditional route, a colored engagement ring is a beautiful choice. Fancy colored diamonds, like yellow and pink, are especially stunning. But it doesn't have to be a diamond—there are plenty of other gorgeous gemstones that will give your ring a unique touch as well, like sapphires (in blue, yellow or orange), rubies and emeralds.
