Sure, there are guys out there who 'pop the question' for engagement without a ring (those spontaneous proposals that 'just happen' before he could even ring shop can be endearing). Some eschew a gift of any kind. But those are probably as rare as men who marry three women at the same time. Unless the world undergoes a radical transformation, we foretell that the accepted norm of presenting an engagement RING gift during a marriage proposal isn’t going to end any time soon.
Today, however, many men have decided to give a ring but just not a diamond ring. These are guys who say "NO THANKS!" to the 'tradition' the diamond cartel created with ivory tower advertising. Sapphires. Emeralds. Rubies. These 3 other precious gemstones are actually rarer in nature than diamonds, and have been engagement runners-up to the better-marketed natural diamond for years. And these days, right there in the top 5 mix is also cubic zirconia. CZ is perhaps the most well-known, and— in our humble opinion— the best dollar-for-dollar diamond simulant ever manufactured. Welcome to the official home of cubic zirconia online!
