ENGAGEMENT RING TRENDS: COLORED STONES [QUIZ]
While a white diamond is the go-to option for most engagement rings, they aren’t the only possibility. Throughout the years, some of our favorite celebrities have opted for rings with colored diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and more. A unique stone may be the perfect way to surprise your soon to be fiancée. With sweet meaning and rich hues, add a touch of flair to your proposal with one of these beautiful stones:
One of the most popular engagement styles among the stars, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood both sport canary yellow rings. A slight deviation from the traditional white diamond, a pale yellow stone looks stunning whether it is set in white or yellow gold.
Express your passion and love with a ruby engagement ring. The rich, red stone that we call a ruby is made of the same material as Sapphire, making it another durable option that has stood the test of time. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, diamonds and rubies were often paired together as a symbol of eternal love. A romantic idea for an engagement ring, Jessica Simpson and Priscilla Chan-Zuckerberg both sport a ruby with diamond accents.
An elegant selection, a sapphire engagement ring is the perfect “something blue.” One of the most famous of these blue stones was worn by Princess Diana, and now rests on the finder of Kate Middleton. A symbol of truth, sincerity and faithfulness, it is a beautiful and meaningful option to offer any bride looking for a statement ring. The sapphire is ranked at a 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness, making it durable enough for everyday wear. Shades of cornflower blue are the most valuable and popular, but stones come in a wide range of colors to suit any style.
A sweet and romantic hue, a pink engagement ring is sure to turn heads. These stones look stunning against platinum and rose gold settings. Consider rose gold prongs regardless of the ring’s metal to make them blend seamlessly against the stone. One of our favorite designs: Blake Lively’s gorgeous ring.
