Gemstone Engagement Rings
Why should diamond rings get all the attention? Gemstone rings set with precious or semi-precious stones are unique and beautiful. Receiving a sapphire as an engagement ring has become more commonplace in recent years: sapphires are available in blue, pink, yellow, or even white (also known as colorless). Morganite's peachy pink shade is also growing in popularity as a choice for an engagement ring. If you're considering a gemstone engagement ring, look for something that you'll feel comfortable wearing every day for the rest of your life. With a sapphire or other precious gemstone ring, you will stand apart from the crowd and have something that matches your style and personality.
Birthstones for the Birthday Queen
Birthstones and birthstone jewelry have long been traditional gifts — with the exception of April (diamonds), the other eleven months use colored gemstones to signify the month in which you were born. Depending on your birth month, you may even have multiple options for stones or gemstones that come in a variety of colors! September's sapphires aren't limited to blue but also come in pink, yellow, chocolate, and even black. June has two gemstone options — alexandrite and moonstone. Even though some gemstones like garnets (January) and topaz (December) are commonly seen in just a few shades, they actually come in many hues. Have fun with your jeweler choosing your favorite stone for the most special birthstone jewelry.
Semi-precious but Never Semi-dramatic
Semi-precious gemstones don't get all the credit they deserve. If you're on the hunt for a distinctive set of earrings, a semi-precious stone can be one of the best routes: they come in all sorts of colors, and you can often find very large and good-quality stones at an affordable price. If you're on the search for a green stone but don't want an emerald, check out garnets or peridots. Garnets, typically dark to light red, can also form as green crystals; in this form they are referred to as tsavorite, which is rarer but maintains the same core minerals present in the garnet family. Peridot, one of the few naturally-occurring stones available in only one color, still has a vast selection of shades, from a light yellowish-green to moss to a brownish-olive. While you might not find a shade of pure emerald green in either one, you'll be happily surprised by the variety that awaits you!
Something For Everyone
Gemstone jewelry is perfect for anyone and everyone: the variety of stones at different price points makes gemstone necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets accessible and endlessly unique. If your loved one has been asking for something beautiful, talk to your jeweler about gemstone jewelry. If you're seeking a certain color, symbolism, or quality, they can point you in the right direction. Custom jewelry with gemstones is a great option to explore to fulfill a vision and get exactly what you want in the perfect color and shape. Don't be afraid to be yourself and go against the current to make all your fine jewelry dreams come true.
