Coloured gem rings are enjoying a rise in popularity.
Engagement rings with a sparkling splash of colour can be beautiful and dazzling against a traditional wedding band.
With so many colours to choose from you can have an eye-popping coloured gem ring or, if bold colour is not for you, opt for a subtle hint of colour. The latter can be achieved with either a soft coloured central stone or small coloured gemstones to accentuate your white diamond.
Although there are many coloured gems to choose from, some of the most popular coloured gems have been the sapphire and the ruby. Both gems have a hardness rating of 9 which is only second to the diamond which is rated 10! This makes them perfect for rings.
