Gemstone Engagement Rings
In recent years, coloured gemstone engagement rings have become red hot with royals, fashionistas, trendsetters and celebrities alike turning to gemstones to find a splash of colour. This renaissance in the trend for adding a splash of colour, vibrancy, and boldness to an engagement ring can be attributed in large part to the myriad options that coloured gemstones present to display your individual style and personality. A coloured gemstone engagement ring is a look that’s both timeless and contemporary.
Gemstone engagement rings herald back to more than 2 centuries ago, when in 1796, Napoleon Bonaparte gifted to his future empress, Joséphine, a sapphire and diamond ring for their engagement. Today, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, wears what is probably the most famous gemstone engagement ring. It is a beautiful 12 carat blue sapphire engagement ring that once belonged to Princess Diana, surrounded by diamonds. Other royals have followed this trend, with Princess Eugenie, daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, selecting an orange pink padparadscha sapphire for her engagement ring, surrounded by round brilliant cut diamonds.
What’s not to love about gemstone engagement rings? Firstly, there’s the obvious factor: colour. When you discover the world of coloured gems you’ll find a veritable rainbow of colours, from magnificent blues of sapphires, to the vivid reds of rubies, to the gorgeous greens of emeralds. There is a gem to colour every heart’s desire. Secondly, a coloured gemstone engagement ring will let you add more depth of meaning to the engagement ring. You could for example, select a gemstone that resonates with you because it is either your’s or your partner’s birthstone. You could pair it with diamonds or you could use it in solitary style. Thirdly, coloured gemstone engagement rings are synonymous with historical symbolism, and you could pick one that inspires you and resonates with your heart’s longing. Take emeralds for instance, which are considered to be the symbol of rebirth and the gem of royalty and romance. On the other hand sapphires have traditionally been associated with sincerity, truth and faithfulness. And finally, there is the matter of affordability, coloured gemstones are a great way to add size to an engagement ring without the hefty price point that a comparable size diamond would add. If you look beyond the well known coloured gemstones like rubies, sapphires and emeralds to a kaleidoscope of gems that are less well known but equally breathtaking, you will find something substantially less expensive to suit your personality, style and budget.
