The days of simply choosing a white diamond to sit on a metal band are over. A new era, reflecting women’s desire for unique and individual items, has begun and is directly influencing the world of engagement rings.
Golden Opportunities for Grooms
Consequently, grooms are facing the opportunity to make more thoughtful choices when selecting a ring for their bride-to-be and the most popular way to do this is to choose a distinctive, well-suited coloured gemstone to be the centrepiece. Many grooms are basing these choices on a variety of factors.
Colours for Characters
Of course, personal preference takes precedence so stick to the classic white diamond engagement rings if your fiancée appreciates the tradition. However, others are choosing stones to suit personality traits such as calming blue engagement rings for the elegant but reserved types. Or playful yellow engagement rings to suit the effervescent and cheery types.
Additional sentimental value can be noted in the fact that many of these vibrantly coloured gems have meanings and even carry metaphysical properties. Obviously a pink engagement ring represents love and devotion and is an exquisite representation of the sentiment behind the gesture. Aquamarine engagement rings are said to have healing properties and provide the wearer with a calming and soothing effect.
So the beauty of this new fashion trend of using vividly coloured gemstones to feature on beautiful rose gold or white gold engagement rings is the wonderful freedom and opportunity it provides you to truly put some thought into your choice. And honestly, that is what will make the engagement ring truly priceless to your beloved.
