Why choose a gemstone engagement ring

If you are looking for a timeless and traditional engagement ring, the gold solitaire with a diamond is your best bet.

What gemstone for an engagement ring ?
In the classification of gems, there are only four gemstones: diamond, sapphire, ruby and emerald. All other stones are fine, ornamental or organic stones, which may sometimes, by misuse of language, be called ""precious stone"", when in fact they belong to the category of stones that were formerly called ""semi-precious"". Colored gemstones, such as sapphire, ruby and emerald, are a great choice if you are looking for an engagement ring with a gem that stands out from the diamond. Each of these three stones, apart from the fact that they each offer very specific color shades and characteristics, are also associated with various symbolism, stemming from myths and legends coming from different and ancient cultures.
A sapphire engagement ring
A beautiful sapphire can be recognized mainly by its intense and deep blue color, without inclusions. In addition, if you are looking for a less common stone, you should also know that there are sapphires in many other colors: yellow, rose, orange, purple... Often associated with celestial purity, the sapphire represents loyalty and fidelity, so giving an engagement ring adorned with such a stone is of great symbolism, and sends a strong message to the loved one...
A ruby engagement ring
A beautiful deep red ruby, has embodied love and passion for hundreds of years. Pairing beautifully with white, yellow or rose gold, it is a sure bet to declare your feelings! Very romantic set in rose gold, contrasting with strength in white gold or imbued with classic charm in yellow gold, the ruby is a gemstone with character that will appeal to those who love bright colors.
An emerald engagement ring
Known for their mesmerizing green color, emeralds are very rare gemstones that pair beautifully with yellow gold. The inclusions of the emerald, called ""garden"", form a light white cloud inside the gem and give them all their particularity, a bit like a birthmark. They make it possible to check if the stone was treated or not, and consequently if it is well natural and what is its real value. Many shades of green exist for emeralds, depending on the area from which they originate and the way they were naturally formed. Known and adored since ancient times, it is a stone with a captivating aura that will set an engagement ring with panache!
