Gemstone wedding rings are a great alternative to traditional diamond wedding rings. If you love the look of sapphires, rubies, or emeralds, then you might really appreciate an engagement or wedding ring created for you using these beautifully elegant gemstones. Diamonds are certainly classic and brilliant, but other precious gemstones can be equally as stunning, not to mention completely unique and diverse.

Probably the most popular gemstone besides the diamond is a sapphire, as it is used quite frequently in engagement rings and matching wedding bands. Princess Diana spurred on the trend towards sapphires when she became engaged to Prince Charles in 1980. He slipped a large oval sapphire, surrounded by diamonds, on a yellow gold band, onto her ring finger. It was very beautiful, and immediately people around the world began to copy the design for their engagement rings.

The Beauty and Grace of Gemstone Wedding Rings

Gemstone wedding rings are unique wedding rings, as they are bold in the statement that they are just as beautiful as diamonds. Perhaps they can be even more exquisite when they are flanked by diamonds, thus creating an absolutely gorgeous work of art. Nothing is more pretty than a sapphire, ruby or emerald stone surrounded by brilliant, sparkling diamonds.

If you are in the market for an engagement or wedding ring, take some time to consider the other precious gemstones. They are beautiful when paired with yellow gold, white gold, platinum, or titanium, and they will retain their beauty for years to come. Take some time to browse the local jewelers, and try on some perfect gemstone rings for size. You may be pleasantly surprised.
