Gold isn`t a basic material for rings, platinum, silver or white gold can be also some nice variants to pick from! And the precious stones (diamond most of the time) can be substituted with a semi-precious ones (rubies, emeralds, sapphires). Pearls and opals are used rarely in engagement rings because they smash easily!
