Diving Into The World Of Alternate Gemstone Options

In recent years coloured gemstones in engagement rings have surged in popularity, captivating hearts with their stunning hues, adding personality to ring design.

From the tranquil blue allure of sapphires to the fiery passion of rubies and the amazing range of colour in gems that are less well known, the beautiful world of gemstones offers a kaleidoscope of colours to those seeking something beyond a traditional diamond.

Let’s take a look at the evolving trends of coloured gemstone engagement rings.

Timeless Sapphires

Sapphires in heavenly blues have long been a classic choice for engagement rings, in halo or three stone designs that incorporate diamonds, transcending fads. Whether set in white, yellow gold or platinum, sapphire engagement rings are a stunning choice that appeals to couples seeking a symbol of love and commitment.

There’s also a growing interest in the staggering range of exquisite rainbow of colours that are part of the sapphire family: from the blue-greens and teals, to golden, peach, lavender and pink. They add a refreshing twist to engagement ring design.

As well as classic styles, unique and creative ring designs that use these amazing gems are in favour and reflect the individuality of the wearer.

Whether opting for a timeless classic or a bold contemporary take on your engagement ring design, the gorgeous array of sapphire colours brings a pop of personality and flair to any ring.

The Ruby Renaissance

In the realm of engagement rings, rubies are making a comeback. The bold richness of their red hues is alluring, evoking the glamour and sophistication of previous generations.

A ruby and diamond ring, whether classically styled with influences from the past, or a modern take on romanticism, will appeal to those captivated by luxury.
