25 Colorful Engagement Rings
You can't go wrong with a classic diamond, but since your engagement ring is one you're going to wear for the rest of your life, you want it to reflect your style and personality. If that means colorful, unique, or alternative, don't feel like you have to be wedded to a traditional diamond. Instead, set your sights on an engagement ring with gemstones.
A gemstone ring isn't necessarily a huge departure from the norm—after all, the queen of classic style, Kate Middleton, has an engagement ring with a large oval sapphire—but adding colorful gemstones into the mix can certainly make a standard setting feel a little more interesting and statement-making. And if your style is inherently a little more glamorous, a ring with both diamonds and gemstones is a nice way to make your bridal jewelry feel different from everyone else's.
If you subtle, delicate jewelry with hints of color feels more like you, turn to one of our favorite modern jewelry designers. Wwake, which always creates one-of-a-kind, gorgeous pieces, has a number of colored engagement rings aren't too over the top. Cathy Waterman is another jewelry designer we love for her ability to create fresh, elegant rings using a mix of gemstones and diamonds. Whether you're looking to purchase an engagement ring at a traditional jeweler, antique shop, or online, you'll find that there are plenty of gemstone options out there—in all different colors—for you to choose form. From sapphires and rubies to tourmaline and emeralds, here are some of our favorite colored engagement rings.
