“Colored gemstones are all the rage, made even more popular by Kate Middleton’s sapphire ring. I love this trend, as it allows a woman’s engagement ring and personal style to stand out. Check out a few of my favorites featuring the ruby, sapphire, yellow enhanced diamond and emerald. And while these are the most popular alternatives to the traditional diamond, there are many other gems and colors to choose from as well.
Sapphires have long been prized for their intense, velvety color. The calming influence of blue has also made it an enduring symbol for loyalty and trust–one reason women around the world choose Sapphire for their engagement rings.
Fiery and romantic, showing brilliant depth and intensity, the red hue of Ruby is certain to draw attention. In settings that focus attention on voluptuous color, Ruby sends a message of drop-dead glamour and femininity.
Yellow Enhanced Diamonds carry the unique brilliance of a diamond, paired with an equally arresting vibrancy of color. This glistening, citrus-hued stone is gaining popularity as brides increasingly seek to express their own personal style.
Fine-quality Emeralds of significant size are among the world’s most bewitching jewels. The hue of nature itself, Emerald pulses with life and vitality.
