The search to find that perfect ring isn't easy and not all women want that modern or traditional style sparkler. So how can you make sure to get her a unique engagement ring she'll love forever? Colorful gemstones are a great alternative to the traditional diamond ring, but nothing says one-of-a-kind like a vintage engagement ring.
You don't have to be born in September to appreciate the beauty of the symbolic sapphire. For centuries, blue sapphires have been a symbol of loyalty, making them the perfect stone of choice for an engagement ring. With that in mind, it's no surprise that before diamonds, these deep blue gems were actually the preferred stone for engagement rings.
Now sapphires and diamonds are used together in a variety of fine jewelry, including engagement rings. Stand out from the crowd with one of these seven previously-owned sapphire and diamond engagement rings:
1) 14K White Gold Sapphire and Diamond Three Stone Ring
Embrace your past, present and future with this gorgeous estate sapphire and diamond three stone engagement ring. The stunning round sapphire is flanked by two round brilliant cut diamonds, adding the perfect amount of color and sparkle to this timeless piece. If you're looking for a simple, classic ring that is distinct enough to stand out in the crowd of Boston engagement rings, this vintage ring is the perfect choice.
This sapphire and diamond sparkler is truly exquisite. In addition to the mesmerizing oval cut center, the white gold ring also features 26 single cut diamonds.

Creativity meets elegance in this stunning bypass ring. The contrasting yellow gold setting sets the already unique design apart even more.
