Coloured gemstone engagement rings are beginning to take over from the more traditional clear diamond ring for lots of young couples. There are already a huge number of fabulous gemstones to choose from, many of which have their own romantic references and meanings, making choosing one more meaningful for many couples. Rubies, emeralds and sapphires all have their own attractions, but less well-known stones like aquamarine have also become popular.
Coloured gemstone engagement rings can really make a statement.
Kate Middleton’s sapphire engagement ring started a trend, which was followed by Megan Markle’s aquamarine engagement ring, and then Blake Lively’s pink diamond engagement ring. Coloured gemstone engagement rings have definitely become a thing.
Coloured gemstone engagement rings are a fantastic way to show off your personality, and are also a way to add extra meaning to your engagement.
Coloured gemstone engagement rings can also be set with diamonds for extra bling!
Some gemstones also have historic symbolism and can be associated with virtues like sincerity, truth, faithfulness, loyalty and so on. Coloured stones can also be used to create acrostic jewellery, where a secret message can be spelt out using various gemstones – the first letter of each gemstone creates the message.
Realistically, coloured gemstones can also be less expensive than diamonds, particularly by size, so if you want a statement engagement ring, a large coloured gemstone can make an impact. You can also use various coloured gemstones in combination with diamonds to create a personalised and unique engagement ring.
Let us take a look at what exactly you should consider when purchasing a coloured gemstone engagement ring:
Coloured gemstone engagement rings can be made from precious stones like rubies, sapphires, emeralds and yellow diamonds.
You will be wearing your engagement ring everyday so you need an engagement ring that can withstand all kinds of wear and tear. Your ring may be exposed to household chemicals or heat or temperature changes.
Under these circumstances many gemstones may chip, crack or even break. How your gemstone reacts to these stressors will determine its stability as well as durability. Stones like amethyst and topaz, if exposed to light for long may lose their colour or fade over time, so do keep this in mind when choosing your coloured gemstone engagement ring.
