Go with Gemstone

In many cases, it's the diamond that raises the price of the ring to unattainable standards. However, there is no hard-and-fast rule that says that an engagement ring has to feature a big diamond. Go with a gem ring instead, like this stunning emerald piece ($799), that won't just make you the coolest engaged lady on the block, you're also the one with the savviest fiance!
