19 Pearl Engagement Rings That Are As Unique As They Are Stunning
·3 min read
Over the last year, we’ve noticed a trend in engagement rings with non-traditional stones, specifically pearls, gaining on classic diamonds. Ever since we saw our Favourite actress Emma Stone debut the vintage, pearl engagement ring she received from SNL writer Dave McCary in December 2019, we’ve been particularly drawn to the style.
Pearl engagement rings are tempting for a number of reasons. For starters, they often tend to cost less than diamond rings. They’re also more unique and unexpected than traditional diamond rings, which is likely why McCary chose the Yoshinobu Kataoka pearl ring for Stone. They are alsomore sustainable. Of course, the advantages of diamonds still hold true: They’re one of the hardest and most durable stones out there. (On the Moh’s hardness scale, pearls rate at just 2.5 to 3, while diamonds have a rating of 10 out 10.) But, with the right care, a pearl engagement ring can, too, stand up to life’s daily tasks.
So, if going the traditional diamond route feels not you, give the 19 pearl engagement rings ahead a try. The way trends are looking, you won’t be the only one sporting a classic pearl on your ring finger going into engagement season.
