February: Amethyst Engagement Ring

February's birthstone is the beautiful crystalline amethyst. Though its color might be better highlighted in a cut version of this stone, the natural druzy texture is something a daring bride would love.

April: Diamond Engagement Ring

Diamonds are the traditional gem for engagement rings, but coincidentally, they are also the birthstone for April. To really emphasize the conscious choice of having a birthstone engagement ring, consider an uncut or "rough" diamond. You will be surprised by their natural beauty.

September: Sapphire Engagement Ring

There's nothing quite like a sapphire. Its intense blue, almost navy, pigment along with its clarity have made it a desirable gem since the Middle Ages! Thankfully, we can't see this option for a birthstone engagement ring going out of fashion any time soon.

December Birthstone: Turquoise

Though turquoise is an earthy stone, take advantage of its unique color and texture, and pair it with something a bit more polished, like a diamond. The result is nothing short of incredible.
