5 Stunning, Conflict Free Engagement Rings for Vegan Brides
Ethical Engagement Rings
I'm a normally sane and respectable person but on Thursdays and Fridays, I will self-medicate with hours of Four Weddings and Say Yes to the Dress (shut up). Every week, Boyfriend is outraged--"it's the same drama! Why do you watch that?"--and I'll respond calmly, "no, every bride is SO different."
If Thursdays are Bride Days to you too (you know who you are), take a look at these 5 absolutely gorgeous conflict-free engagement rings. As you probably know, around 2/3 of the world's diamonds are mined in Africa; much of these so-called blood diamonds are mined and sold to finance warlords in conflict regions. Each of these pieces are handmade from recycled or ethically sourced stones and metals, and 2 of them are under $1,000. Reasonably priced, unique, and beautiful, they're the perfect rings for the vegan bride.

Aquamarine Halo Ring by Bario Neal, $2,495
Ever since Duchess Catherine, blue stones have made a huge comeback. This aquamarine ring is just different enough from that famous ring, but with a similar timeless and luxurious appeal. While it's not a diamond, it is no less romantic: Aquamarine means "seawater" in Latin and it was believed to protect sailors from harm.
Grotto Ring by Bario Neal, $4,427
If your perfect wedding involves lush woodlands, dreamy tulle gown, and vows in a moss-covered grotto, this ring is the one for you, elven princess. The ethically sourced 0.75ct diamond is set on hand-cast 14k gold with prong setting.
