Gemstone may not be the first thing that pops into your head when it comes to picking out an engagement ring but you don’t need to limit yourself to diamonds. Diamonds are the show stopping part of an engagement ring but if you want something different that will equally stand out from a crowd gemstones are the way to go.
Engagement rings with a bit of colour are bold, elegant and unique. There are so many ways they can be used with or instead of diamonds.
Here are a few options:
Halos are a popular choice when it comes to engagement rings. They are sparkly, delicate and feminine. Adding a bit of colour to this setting will add a bit of class and sophistication to the engagement ring.
Sapphires in engagement rings have made a comeback in the last 10 years. Kate Middleton famously wears Princess Diana’s stunning oval cut sapphire halo engagement ring. Sapphires are now associated with the word royal, and when included in an engagement ring it adds a touch of elegance.
Using gemstones in your halo engagement ring to surround the centre diamond will accentuate the sparkle and size of the diamond. It will add some depth to ring and a touch of richness. Sapphire are probably the most popular choice when including a gemstone in an engagement ring but some more beautiful choices would be pink sapphires, emeralds or your partners birthstone.
Add a burst of colour by abandoning the idea of a diamond centre stone. There is so much choice when it comes to gemstone centre stones you can find literally any colour and shade you could possibly want. You can go for something bold and elegant like a royal blue Sapphire or something a little more subtle and delicate like a light peach Morganite.
The most common gemstone centrepieces would be sapphires, rubies, emeralds and amethyst as they all are stunning in engagement rings. On average, using a gemstone will be cheaper then a diamond, this means you can go for a larger size centre stone while still keeping within the budget.
