Gemstone engagement ringss

Romancing the Stone

When it comes to selecting a gemstone for an engagement ring, the diamond remains the most popular choice because of its rarity., durability, strength and value.

Adding to their attractiveness in wedding jewellery, general signs of wear and tear such a s small scratches are much less noticeable in white diamonds. For those who prefer a less traditional approach or perhaps a splash of colour sapphire and ruby are also popular choices and tend to be most suitable for engagement rings. Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cabridge sports a blue sapphire. These are both very hard gemstones that can stand up to daily wear and tear better than other softer gemstones.
