I’ve always been a fan of a beautiful diamond engagement ring but not so much the conflict or price that goes along with it. When a piece of jewelry costs the same as a vehicle, I’m not on board. Spending a month’s salary on an engagement ring doesn’t seem romantic to me; it seems wasteful. And that’s not even considering the fact that almost 25% of diamonds sold today are blood diamonds, meaning they are sourced from slavery, abuse, bloodshed, and conflict. The role of diamonds in marriage proposals seems so ingrained and indisputable that you might think they’ve been playing that role for hundreds of years, but it’s not true. Before diamonds became popular, engagement rings were full of many different colorful stones and precious metals, making them unique and special for each women that had one on her hand. I recently saw a YouTube video by Shea Whitney testing her real diamond ring vs a Tiger Gems ring on strangers and very few people chose the actual diamond ring. Most people had to guess because they looked so similar. I loved the idea of Tiger Gems rings and knew I had to check Tiger Gems for myself.
Tiger Gems offers the highest quality diamond simulants. The stones are conflict free and affordable. They offer silver engagement rings, white gold engagement rings, promise rings, silver bridal sets, white gold bridal sets, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.

They also include free standard shipping in the US and a signature Tiger Gems Box and keepsake pouch. This luxurious ultra-suede drawstring pouch can be used to polish your jewelry and keep it sparkling like new.
Cord and I looked at the site together and decided to pick a bridal set that we both loved. When we moved to Frisco, Texas, I was on a fiancee visa with only 90 days to plan a wedding and get married. We purchased wedding bands online with very little thought because we just wanted to have something for the day, and we didn’t get an engagement ring. It wasn’t the jewelry that was important; it was our marriage. Now that we’ve had time to settle into our new house, community, and married life, we decided to find a bridal set that we could cherish for years to come.
With 153 different bridal set choices, it’s difficult to chose your favorite one. Ultimately, we felt like the 1.25 ctw Art Deco Halo Set fit my personality and style perfectly. Modern yet romantic, it’s the most beautiful halo ring and art deco band I’ve ever seen. I would have been skeptical before buying it, but after watching Shea Whitney’s YouTube video, I could tell the amazing quality of Tiger Gems’s jewelry.
Each handmade Tiger Gems piece is crafted with the perfect conflict-free alternative to a mined diamond. You can feel good knowing that human life was not sacrificed to make your jewelry. Their stones are cut and faceted to the highest quality standards to achieve maximum brilliance. The eye-catching sparkle of this piece is absolutely breathtaking.
The halo ring stone is a flawless D color man-made diamond simulant with a 925 Sterling Silver with Rhodium Plating band.
When it arrived at the house, I immediately opened the box and put on my new bridal set. It was so stunning that it brought me to tears (Being a little more than four months pregnant could have played a role as well). It has a brilliant shine that I can’t stop admiring. It makes me want to dress up and go out some place fancy to show it off.
It’s no secret that I’d prefer an adventure or a trip over expensive jewelry any day and for any occasion, but with Tiger Gems I can have the heart-warming bridal set and the travel at the same time.
