Every love story is unique: For the bride, an alternative engagement ring becomes her outward symbol of a one-of-a-kind love. Unusual rings are embraced by the bride who requires statement-making jewelry, and her choice of style runs the gamut from quietly minimalistic to exuberantly ornate.
Sure, the white round diamond has long been the classic engagement ring, but many gorgeous options exist beyond that typical style. Some are rendered unique due their setting design, be it modern or vintage-inspired. Others stand out due to their metal, ranging from rose gold to a highly-polished platinum band. A constellation of gemstones is there for one's choosing, including deeply red rubies, ink-toned sapphires, blushing morganites and opalescent pearls. Here, we've selected the most stunning alternative engagement rings from Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman Marcus and more.
Of the many pre-wedding complications a bride might experience, an acne breakout is among the worst.

Proactiv Solution's 5-Step Acne Treatment System - the "Stress-Free Skin Wedding Kit," consists of three dermatologist-developed products that work together through the strength of science. This group of formulations includes prescription-strength benzoyl peroxide that kills acne-causing bacteria at its source. And that's just for starters. When used in unison, these products harmonize to leave your skin clear and glowing. Bonus: There are two additional products to prevent blackheads, blemish flare-ups, and keep the glow going long after the honeymoon ends. Get the skinny on each step of this lifesaver kit — trust us, your wedding survival bag is not complete without it!
