      Styles For Coloured Engagement Rings

These single or double-layered halos are offered in a variety of shapes, including oval, cushion, floral, pear, star, emerald and sunburst designs.

      The bands of our coloured gemstone engagement rings feature diamonds in a variety of setting types, with plain gold bands also available, offering a more practical alternative for those with hands-on occupations.

       Choosing a Colour for Your Engagement Ring Stone

      Most customers choose gemstone engagement rings based on their favourite colour. Others opt for a coloured gemstone that matches their official birthstone; those born in May choose emerald green stone engagement rings; people born in July buy red stone engagement rings; and those with September birthdays are particularly fond of blue stone engagement rings.

      Celebrity engagement rings can also influence couples’ decisions to buy a coloured stone, with Princess Diana’s iconic blue ring (now worn by her daughter-in-law, Kate Middleton) an ongoing driver in the rise of sapphire engagement rings.

      Judging Quality When Selecting a Coloured Engagement Ring

      Coloured stone engagement rings’ quality is judged using the same criteria used to determine quality of classic white diamond engagement rings: the 4cs (Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat).

      Gemstone Cut is the most important and determines how sparkly the gemstone is based on its ability to reflect light, Carat refers to the size of the gemstone, Colour indicates the gemstone’s colour grade, and Clarity measures any naturally-occurring imperfections found within the stone.

      Coloured Engagement Rings: FAQs

      Can engagement rings have coloured stones?

      Some of the most famous engagement rings of recent times showcase coloured gemstones, including those belonging to Victoria Beckham, Scarlett Johansson, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. After white diamonds, sapphires are the most popular coloured stone used in modern engagement rings. When worn on the right engagement ring finger, there is no mistaking a colourful engagement ring for a cocktail ring.

      Are coloured engagement rings expensive?

      Engagement rings with coloured gemstones are generally more affordable than traditional engagement rings featuring white diamonds of equal carat weight. With the money you’ll save buying a coloured gemstone, you can add a halo of smaller diamonds around the outside, combining to create a striking all-over glow of contrast and sparkle.

      What are the benefits of coloured stone engagement rings?

      In addition to being more affordable than diamond engagement rings of equal carat weight, coloured engagement rings can offer greater personalisation and distinction… How many people do you know with a green emerald engagement ring?
