Why You Should Choose Coloured Gemstones Instead of Diamonds For Your Engagement Ring

For decades, diamonds have been the traditional choice for engagement rings, but many couples are now turning to coloured gemstones such as emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and spinels for a unique and vibrant alternative. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider incorporating coloured gemstones into your engagement ring, and why is the perfect place to shop for them.


Uniqueness and Personality

While diamonds are timeless and classic, they are also incredibly common. Coloured gemstones, on the other hand, offer a wide range of unique colours and hues that can help you express your individuality and personality. Whether you prefer the deep green of an emerald, the rich red of a ruby, the classic blue of a sapphire, or the fiery sparkle of a spinel, there is a gemstone out there that is perfect for you and your partner

Symbolism and Meaning

In addition to their beauty and uniqueness, coloured gemstones also hold significant symbolism and meaning. For example, emeralds have long been associated with love and fertility, making them an excellent choice for an engagement ring. Rubies, on the other hand, are often associated with passion and romance, while sapphires are thought to represent loyalty and trust. By choosing a coloured gemstone for your engagement ring, you can add a deeper layer of significance to both your jewellery and your relationship.


Durability and Rarity

Another advantage of coloured gemstones is their durability and rarity. While diamonds are known for their hardness, many coloured gemstones are equally as durable, if not more so. For example, sapphires rank just below diamonds in terms of hardness, but have no cleavage making them an excellent choice for an engagement ring that will be worn every day. Additionally, coloured gemstones such as emeralds and spinels are much rarer than diamonds, making them an excellent choice for those who want something truly unique and special.
