First of all, your engagement ring doesn't have to be a diamond. You can have any stone you like. If you like the look of a diamond but not the source, consider a cubic zirconia--they are indistinguishable from the real thing to all but experts. (Much cheaper, too.) Finally, consider whether you need an engagement ring at all. I personally dislike the symbolism of the woman's wearing a ring during the engagement while the man does not--as if only she were spoken for. Some men wear their wedding rings on the right hand during the engagement period, and it seems logical to me that the woman could do the same, eliminating the need for an extra, expensive ring.
