More and more women are choosing alternative stones like Sapphire's, Ruby's, and Emeralds as a center stone in their engagement ring. This trend is becoming more and more popular as women are looking for something different, something to stand out from their friends. ECO Diamond offers lab grown sapphires, rubies and emeralds. These stones are of the same chemical makeup of naturally mined stones for a fraction of the cost. Recently we had a customer order her engagement ring in a halo setting with an oval sapphire center. It looked amazing. Her boyfriend only knew what she was looking for but wanted to surprise her. Total price with all work came to $699.00. She was blown away with how it looked on her. This is happening more often among couples. All of our rings can be set with either option of stone you wish. Please call us with questions.
