Choosing an engagement ring is like choosing the perfect wedding dress. It’s personal, unique and individual to the bride, selecting a piece that will be cherished for a lifetime.
Diamonds with white gold bands are often the traditional choice for engagement rings, and while they are beautiful and elegant, many brides desire something special and unique to them. It’s a celebration of your love, so it’s important to select the right ring that you can treasure for a long time.
There is no right or wrong when choosing an engagement ring, but we think it’s important to embrace individuality. With this in mind, we have put together 5 of our favorite unique colored engagement rings that will make a statement and honor your bride-to-be.
1. Blue Sapphire Engagement Ring
Sapphire is a precious gemstone, best known for its strikingly vivid appearance. Something borrowed, something blue, the beautiful blue sapphire is the rarest colored sapphire, making it an exceptional engagement ring. It’s a gemstone that complements all skin colors, so you can guarantee it will look stunning on your future wife.
No two sapphire gemstones are ever the same, making it a truly one-off piece. Depending on your preference, it can be cut into oval, round or cushion shapes. We recommend pairing it with a white gold or platinum band to complement the stone. Sapphire’s durability makes it another wise choice, as it’s ideal for everyday wear. However, it should still be treated with care to avoid scratching the stone. You can find our selection of sapphire rings here.
2. Green Emerald Engagement Ring
Make a bold statement for your bride with an emerald engagement ring, the perfect centerpiece of any ring. This rare gemstone is the official birthstone of May, so if your bride-to-be celebrates a birthday in May, then this could hold extra meaning. If you’re planning to get engaged in May, then this could also be a thoughtful choice, a token of a special moment you will both remember forever.
A richly saturated green, the emerald belongs to the beryl mineral family emerald gemstones come in a wide variety, including something subtle for brides who want a simple yet unusual ring. Shop our vibrant emerald collection.
3. Rose Gold Engagement Ring
If your bride-to-be still wants a traditional diamond, but with a twist, then why not choose a Wabby’s rose gold ring.
An elegant and feminine option, rose gold rings complement all skin tones, thanks to its gentle blush color palette. While being a more adventurous choice than white gold, a rose gold engagement ring will still remain a timeless piece that never goes out of style. It’s a metal that can be paired with a wide range of gemstones, whether you choose a traditional diamond, or opt for other colors such as blue, red, pink, purple, colorless or even black.
Stronger than white or yellow gold, but not quite as durable as platinum, rose gold is a great choice for everyday wear, and will not tarnish either.
4. Green Diamond Engagement Ring
Staying with the theme of combining traditional and individual engagement rings, the green diamond is an exciting way to add a fresh approach to a timeless gemstone.
As one of the rarest and most valuable diamond colors, the beautiful natural-green shade is one-of-a-kind and resembles nature, prosperity, and abundance. Its symbolism is the perfect metaphor for an engagement ring, representing the beginning of a new life together. Scoring a 10 on the Mohs scale, green diamonds are extremely durable and made to last a lifetime.
Wabby’s Fancy Green Diamond Ring is a stunning green diamond ring, finished with a white gold band and diamond halo and side stones, making it an ideal candidate for that special moment.
5. Paraiba Tourmaline Engagement Ring
The most highly valued gemstone of the tourmaline family, the Paraiba Tourmaline gemstone, is a coveted gemstone thanks to its intensely bright blue-green hues. Its blue-green appearance is an eye-catching choice for any bride, especially as it seems to have an internal glow. If you’re looking for saturation over clarity in an engagement ring, then the Paraiba Tourmaline is an excellent choice.
The Paraiba Tourmaline is also a rare stone, which makes it even more special. Its individuality and extraordinary characteristics make it an exceptional pairing with all metals, like yellow, white or rose gold and platinum. Another benefit of Paraiba Tourmaline is that it’s the strongest tourmaline, meaning its durability can live up to wear and tear over the years.
