Rings: Crown jewels

These alternative stones prove that when it comes to rings, diamonds don’t have to be your best friend.

Mother of pearls
Trinity Fine Jewellers put diamonds on the back burner for this custom-made engagement ring. A Tahitian pearl brings a rare flair to this 14 karat white gold band.

Swiss miss
“Kysa’s Ring” is a special design by Tom Fererro. He was inspired by how rivers and streams flow around obstacles, using Swiss blue topaz to compliment the 18-karat yellow gold.

Regal rocks
Since Prince William popped the question with one, sapphires are in high demand for couples channelling their royal sides. Fireworks Gallery gives you options when it comes to the bold and beautiful stone, using tiny diamonds to accent both pink and blue sapphire.

Oh my opal
Tori Poynton’s “Magic Rockpool Ring” combines a Australian black opal that she collected from a mine Down Under and a continuous length of sterling silver, to represent eternal love.
