GET IN TOUCH WITH A BESPOKE DESIGNER
Sometimes it is easy for couples to get so caught up in the technicalities of choosing an engagement ring that they begin to lose sight of the significance behind the gesture. True, it is important to know about the 4Cs and price etc. However this offering is so much more than that and its significance is beautifully conveyed by a symbolic blue engagement ring.Read More...
Say it in Blue
I have found that no other gemstone has, historically, embodied all the attributes hoped for in a marriage, more than a blue engagement ring. The colour blue is said to represent new beginnings, harmony, loyalty and reliability. The list of positive attributes associated with this coloured stone goes on and each one represents a quality we all hope to have in our married lives.
Our designers showed me exquisite samples of blue engagement rings featuring a dazzling array of blue diamonds, sapphires, tanzanites and aquamarines. Each one was more magnificent than the last but all had a calming, understated elegance that reinforced this colour’s reputation for me. Blue diamonds are extremely rare which added an air of opulence and prestige to those who were fortunate enough to wear one. A blue diamond symbolizes peace and good health,
bringing serenity and love to the wearer. Surely this gem alone encapsulates every sentiment a groom hopes to convey to his bride-to-be.
Given that blue diamonds are among the rarest and most expensive diamonds in the world many brides look to a more available stone, such as a Sapphire, to take centre stage on their ring. Sapphires have been revered for centuries for their magical properties. In medieval times sapphires were used to test a person’s fidelity as it was believed that the colour would change or fade if worn by an impure or untruthful person. Today, this powerful stone represents love, eternity, faithfulness and sincerity.
All the Rage
Blue engagement rings have recently gained celebrity status due to the increasing number of A-listers and Royalty choosing these exquisitely striking gemstones for their rings. Consequently, rings featuring stunning deep blue sapphires or sky blue aquamarines have become an excellent combination of understated elegance and modern style. However the depth of the symbolism associated with blue coloured stones cannot be underestimated and their presence on an engagement ring can certainly provide a perfect way to eloquently express your love for your future partner.
