In times gone by it was assumed that only a diamond would do if you had any hope of getting your marriage proposal accepted – the bigger the better! However, today’s couples looking to tie the knot are opting for a far greater variety of colours, styles, and metals than ever before. Many celebrities have recently opted for an engagement ring with a coloured gemstone including Eva Longoria, Halle Berry and of course, Kate Middleton.
Opting for a coloured stone can allow you and your partner to express your individuality and creativity as a couple, allowing your engagement ring to really stand out from the crowd. Deciding on the right stone is a simple process, call in to discuss your preferences with us and we will be able to advise you on suitable precious stones, and get a selection of beautiful gems in for you to view and choose from.
Popular coloured gemstones include coloured diamonds, rubies and sapphires – which come in many colours, from blue through to pink, and more unusual precious gems such as morganite. Of course, it doesn’t mean that diamonds are out of style, and including some in a diamond halo or as diamond accents on the shoulders of the ring can really bring your coloured gemstone to life with even more sparkle!
Choosing to have a custom-made ring with a coloured precious gem will allow you to have something created that is truly unique to you as a couple. Why not drop by The Workshop for a consultation and see if we can help you find your perfect coloured engagement ring.
