About Our Gemstone Engagement Rings and Jewelry
The latest trend in engagement rings has recently shifted from diamonds to gemstone engagement rings.
When a couple gets engaged, their first priority is usually the ring, which signifies their intent and shared love. Traditionally, this is a diamond, and usually a solitaire. But what do you get for the woman who wants to stand out from the crowd, who wants a very unique piece of jewelry she will wear for the rest of her life? The answer is a gemstone engagement ring.

Gemstones add a bit of color to any type of jewelry they are set in, and engagement pieces are no exception. There are so many gems to choose from in such a wide array of colors, shapes, and styles, that it may be hard to select just the perfect one. You may want to opt for the woman's birth stone, or perhaps a gem which comes in her favorite color. The variety of gemstones is nearly endless with emeralds, rubies, sapphires, topaz, garnet, and tanzanite just a few of the more popular. Sapphire, topaz, and amethyst stones all come in a wide range of hues. For a woman whose mood changes frequently, consider one of the multi-colored gems such as opal, tourmaline, ammolite, or ametrine. Any of these selections will guarantee that not another woman in the world will have the same engagement ring as she does!
One of the more popular choices is sapphire engagement rings. Almost universally, blue is the favorite color of men and women alike. Yet, sapphires come in so many different shades, from yellow to pink, orange to purple - that there is certainly a color which will satisfy even the most discerning jewelry wearer.
Other Types of Gemstone Jewelry
Colorful jewelry is not appropriate just for gemstone engagement rings. On the contrary, gemstone jewelry lends itself perfectly to a variety of occasions - whether it be given as a graduation gift, a birthday present, or to one's self!
While diamonds are always an elegant choice, giving a gemstone necklace in a setting of silver or gold is a more unique gift, particularly when the gem is a birth stone or represents a favorite color. There are many legends associated with gemstones, as well, and the meaning behind a particular stone might also help you decide on which is most appropriate. For instance, opal is reputed to encourage inner beauty, faithfulness, and eyesight while emeralds are thought to improve intelligence and memory.
For a more dramatic display, consider gemstone pendants. Larger than a necklace, gemstone pendants generally hang lower about the neck and often incorporate very unique and sometimes ornate designs.
What woman's arm wouldn't look fantastic encircled by a collection of unique gemstone bracelets? A grouping of three - one ruby, one blue sapphire, and one emerald - makes a dramatic style statement.
Gemstones are a wonderful choice for anyone who either cannot afford diamonds, or wishes to give a truly unique gift - to others or to themselves. Gemstone engagement rings are all the rage now, due to the array of color options, their complexity and their distinctiveness. No matter what occasion you choose to give the gift of gemstones, it will always be appreciated.
