Considering all of the unconventional engagement ring styles that have come to fruition, it’s safe to say that the trend won’t be leaving us any time soon. From cool and unexpected designs to alternative center stones, the rise of nontraditional rings has us looking at this fine jewelry piece in a whole new light. Plus we’re discovering a world of stones we might not have considered before. Case in point: Morganite engagement rings.

Ranging in a spectrum of shades from the palest pink to a deep peach-tinged gray, this unexpected gemstone might just replace the traditional diamond. Not to say that traditional white diamonds—as well as the occasional fancy yellow version—will ever go out of style. But if you consider yourself an alternative bride, morganite will quickly be at the top of your list. Perhaps it’s the rosy shades that make it a perfect symbol for your romance, but we certainly can’t deny how dreamy this stone can be.
