Gemstones are a beautiful and unique addition to engagement rings. They can add an eccentric and spectacular air to any ring, making it truly one-of-a-kind. From classic gemstones like emeralds and rubies to more exotic choices like tanzanite and black diamonds, there is a wide range of colorful gemstones available for bridal jewelry. When paired with diamonds, colorful gemstones can create a stunning contrast and depth, adding sparkle and brilliance to the ring.
Blue sapphires are a beautiful and popular choice for engagement rings, as illustrated by this stunning Tacori RoyalT ring. They are the second-hardest natural mineral after diamonds, making them durable for everyday wear. The deep blue color of sapphires symbolizes loyalty, trust, and wisdom, making them a perfect choice for a lifelong commitment. Blue sapphires are often paired with diamonds in a three-stone setting or as side stones, adding a beautiful contrast and depth to the ring. They are also available in various shades, from pale sky blue to deep navy, allowing you to choose the perfect shade to match your style.
Black diamonds, or "carbonado," are unique and unconventional engagement ring choices. Their dark color and opaque appearance give them a bold and edgy look, as shown in this Barkev's Black Diamond Engagement Ring. Black diamonds are formed differently from colorless diamonds. They are often paired with white diamonds or set in white gold or platinum to create a stunning contrast. Black diamonds are also durable for everyday wear, making them practical and stylish for an engagement ring.
Yellow diamonds are a beautiful and vibrant choice for bridal jewelry. Their sunny color symbolizes happiness, joy, and warmth, making them well-suited to celebrate love and commitment. Yellow diamonds are often used as the center stone in engagement rings, paired with white diamonds or set in yellow gold for a beautiful contrast. They are also available in many shades, from light lemon yellow to intense canary yellow, allowing you to choose the perfect shade to match your style. This enchanting Simon G. ring has a prominent yellow diamond center stone.
Pink diamonds are among the rarest and most exquisite gemstones in the world. Their delicate pink hue is caused by a rare geological phenomenon. Pink diamonds are often used as the center stone or accenting stones in engagement rings, paired with white diamonds or set in rose gold to enhance their beautiful color. For example, when placed in this Simon G. SG engagement ring, they can elevate any center stone.
Tanzanite is a beautiful and unique gemstone often used in bridal jewelry. Its deep blue color is reminiscent of sapphires but has a distinctive purple glimmer that gives it a unique and eye-catching look. Tanzanite is a relatively new gemstone discovered in Tanzania in 1967. It is often used as the center stone in engagement rings or with diamonds to create a beautiful contrast and depth. This marvelous Mark Schneider Contemporary Engagement Ring uses the blue jewel to accent the center stone.
