Lindsay Lohan shocked everyone this week with what very much appears to be the announcement of her engagement to Russian hardware store heir-slash-real estate mogul Egor Tarabasov. But, hey: sometimes all it takes is six months to figure out if you should spend the rest of your life together. Congrats to LiLo!

Now that we鈥檝e had a few days to soak in the news of Lindsay鈥檚 whirlwind engagement, it鈥檚 time to get down to brass tacks. Or, perhaps more accurately, emerald and diamond tacks. That鈥檚 right, it鈥檚 time to get another gander at that gigantic ring, and then find a few similar, probably more affordable, non-traditional emerald engagement rings.

3. RobMdesign Art Deco Pav茅 Diamond Wedding Ring ($1,250): This set (the looped band is actually a separate ring) is a slightly more ornate, traditional ring than Lindsay鈥檚. It鈥檚 perfect for the gal who loves everything mid-century!

4. Rare Earth Diamond Halo Amethyst Ring ($1,290): If you prefer a lighter shade of green than a typical emerald, this green amethyst is an ideal choice. You can choose between white, yellow, rose gold or palladium for the metal base of the ring, and, as a bonus, the diamonds surrounding the amethyst are conflict-free.


5. Minimal VS Emerald Engagement Ring ($2,308): Snag this one if you鈥檙e a dyed-in-the-wool minimalist who just can鈥檛 stop staring at Lindsay鈥檚 ring. It鈥檚 got the diamonds, the emerald and all the oomph while maintaining the sleek simplicity you crave.
