Red Engagement Rings

Using a red gemstone in jewelry is a bold and strong choice. Red gemstone engagement rings are traditionally associated with passion, bravery, and spirit, and make a piece of jewelry particularly meaningful. Settings of yellow or rose gold accentuate the warm tones in the stone, while white metal choices, such as silver, white gold, or platinum create an icy contrast.

Green Engagement Rings

Wearing a piece of jewelry set with a green gemstone is thought to promote calm and rest the spirit.  Green brings to mind growth and freshness, peace and vitality.  Green gemstones are also believed to be advantageous for business and money matters. Interestingly, either white or yellow metals are attractive settings, each bringing their own vibe in combination with green gemstones.  Pink or green gold look softer as mountings and bring an unusual personality to green gemstone jewelry.

Diamond gemstones stand on their own in terms of meaning.  Diamonds are considered intense gemstones, illuminating your future and purpose in life.  They are also the most durable of gemstones.  No wonder they are seen as the right symbolic gemstone for engagement rings. Clear or white gemstones are typically believed to amplify your own energy in many directions, as the gemstone refracts light into many different colors.

Any color of metal or setting style is complementary to white or colorless gemstones, as these powerful stones give off so much energy alone.

White or Clear Gemstones

  • Diamond
  • Moonstone
  • Colorless Sapphire
  • Rock Crystal Quartz
