Engagement Rings – Coloured Gems Are A Girls New Best Friend
In recent years, women have been wanting to create engagement rings that are more personal and unique. The use of coloured gemstones has allowed them to do just that, making each and every ring a “one of a kind”.
Before De Beers started their huge Diamond marketing campaign in 1938, it was actually common place to wear coloured gemstones as an engagement ring. Popular stones included Sapphire, Ruby and Emerald and most of these were flanked by Diamonds. These days there is a bigger push to use exotic gemstones like loose Morganite or even Spinel as the center stone.
Some famous engagement rings include:
Napoleon gave his wife a Sapphire and Diamond ring:
John F Kennedy proposed with a beautiful Emerald Ring:
Princess Dianna and now Princess Kate both said “Yes” to a stunning Sapphire ring;
Today, coloured gemstone engagement rings not only offer something unique, but they also offer more “bling for your buck”. Buying a large solitaire Diamond ring can cost the same as a small car, whereas for a fraction of the price, a large coloured gemstone can be used for the center stone.
