Gemstone Wedding Rings

Gemstone Wedding Rings highlighting sapphires, tanzanites or other colorful gems as the focal point are both beautiful and stylish these days, especially appealing to the younger generations, who don’t want their parent’s diamonds in their wedding rings.  Although diamond or plain wedding rings have been the most common choice for newly married couples over the last century, colorful Gemstone Wedding Rings have always had devoted fans and are becoming far more common. With rich hues and tones, a distinctive yet classic appeal, and sometimes a story to go along with them, beautiful Gemstone Wedding Bands are rising in popularity everywhere with brides to be of all kinds.  The generic, plain wedding band has become an antiquated concept with so many Gemstone Wedding Rings available these days.  Even the chain stores are now offering Gemstone Wedding Rings, albeit only with the big three of ruby, sapphire, or emerald.

The Appeal of Colored Gemstone Wedding Rings

Sapphires, among the earliest gemstones mentioned in historical documents, are an excellent choice for Gemstone Wedding Rings. Sapphires are gorgeous and very durable, so they hold up flawlessly to everyday wear. These very hard stones register a 9  out of 10 on the Mohs Scale, which rates gemstones’ durability,  indicating very good hardness and ability to withstand scratches (in fact, only the diamond ranks higher among gems used for jewelry).

The Sapphire has long symbolized truth, sincerity, and faithfulness – maybe that is why the Sapphire is the most sought after gemstone for Engagement Rings or Wedding Ring Sets.  The most desirable color for sapphires is a rich royal blue, currently famous for its use in Princess Diana’s engagement ring, now worn by Kate Middleton.  If you love the style of these royal icons, you might want to consider our art deco milgrain sapphire band, which features sapphires interspersed throughout half circle cuts.

Colored Gemstone Wedding Rings Means More Than Sapphire, Ruby, Or Emerald

When it comes to wedding rings, colored gemstones offer a unique and meaningful alternative to traditional diamond rings. While sapphire, ruby, and emerald are popular choices, there are many other colored gemstones that can add a personal touch to your special day. From vibrant amethysts to romantic pink tourmalines, the options are endless. Colored gemstone wedding rings not only make a bold fashion statement, but they also carry symbolic meanings that can enhance the significance of your commitment. Whether you choose a gemstone based on its color, birthstone significance, or personal connection, a colored gemstone wedding ring is sure to stand out and hold a special place in your heart.

Why Colored Gemstone Wedding Rings Are Popular

Colored gemstone wedding rings have gained immense popularity in recent years. The allure of these rings lies in their vibrant and unique colors, which add a touch of individuality and personality to the traditional wedding band. Couples today are increasingly seeking alternatives to the classic diamond ring, and colored gemstones offer a perfect solution. With a wide range of gemstone options available, couples can choose a ring that reflects their personal style and preferences. From sapphires and emeralds to rubies and amethysts, the options are truly endless.

In addition to their aesthetic appeal, colored gemstone wedding rings also hold symbolic meaning. Each gemstone is believed to possess certain qualities and characteristics, making it a meaningful choice for a wedding ring. For example, sapphires are associated with loyalty and faithfulness, while emeralds symbolize love and fertility. Couples can select a gemstone that resonates with their values and aspirations, adding a deeper significance to their wedding bands.

Furthermore, colored gemstone wedding rings offer a more affordable alternative to traditional diamond rings. Diamonds are known for their high price tags, often making them out of reach for many couples. Colored gemstones, on the other hand, come in a wide range of price points, allowing couples to find a ring that fits their budget without compromising on style or quality. This affordability factor has made colored gemstone wedding rings a popular choice among couples who are looking for value without sacrificing beauty.

Unique  Gemstone Wedding Rings

If the idea of Colored Gemstone Wedding Rings appeal to you, but aren’t sure that blue sapphire suits you.  Never fear, there are plenty of other colors to choose from. Sapphires come in a range of tones and hues, including yellow, pink, orange, green, purple, and turquoise. We can create Gemstone Wedding Rings using  yellow, pink or even green sapphires. Pink sapphires are a perfectly romantic and feminine choice. On the other hand, yellow sapphires are ideal for a glamorous look, colored diamond look.

While Sapphire may be the king of the colored gemstone, there are tons of other options.  Many are less expensive and almost as durable.  You also open yourself up to other colors.

This Channel Set Men’s Wedding Ring is a simple beveled band with 3 vertically channel set stones.  It has a brushed finish, but it could be given any type of polish that you wanted.  

Emeralds are another timeless choice for Colored Gemstone Wedding Rings.  However, emeralds are far less durable than sapphires or diamonds.  Because of this, extra care should be taken when wearing an wedding ring with emeralds in it.  We like to channel set the emeralds in this brushed men’s wedding to give them extra protection.   If you are just going for the green color, Tourmaline makes a better choice.  Tourmaline comes in a wide variety of green tones and is much more durable than emerald. It is also a far cleaner stone.

Why Colored Gemstone Wedding Rings Should Be Custom Made

When it comes to choosing a wedding ring, many couples opt for the traditional diamond. However, colored gemstone wedding rings are gaining popularity for their uniqueness and personalization. While chain jewelry stores offer a wide selection of rings, opting for a custom-made colored gemstone wedding ring has its advantages.

Firstly, a custom-made colored gemstone wedding ring allows you to choose a gemstone that holds special meaning to you and your partner. Whether it’s your birthstone, a gemstone that represents your shared interests, or simply a color that you both love, a custom-made ring ensures that the gemstone is truly meaningful to you.

When shopping for colored gemstone wedding rings at a retail store, you will be severely limited in your stone choice.  The bog box stores only carry the colored stones that appeal to the largest potion of the population.  This means you will most likely only see ruby, emerald, and sapphire.  Looking for opal?  Good luck with that.  Tourmaline?  No way.

Secondly, a custom-made colored gemstone wedding ring allows for greater creativity and customization. When we create a custom wedding ring, it is done from the ground up. So, you get veto power on every aspect of the ring. The only things you get to choose about a wedding ring you buy from a bog box are the engraving, ring size, and metal color.

The Bottom Line on Colored Gemstone Wedding Rings

Many newlyweds are opting for Gemstone Wedding Rings because they are able to purchase a ring with more or larger stones at a lower price. Diamonds continue to be one of the most expensive of all gems, opting to feature a sapphire or other colored gemstone rather than a diamond in your wedding ring can be financially responsible for newlyweds as well as stylish. Gemstones can make for affordable wedding and engagement rings.    The amount of bang you can get for your buck with colored gemstones is far higher than with diamonds.

An even more affordable way to have a custom gemstone wedding ring create is to laboratory-grown sapphires. As with man made diamonds, sapphires that are made in a lab are chemically and optically the same as those naturally grown. Like their diamond counterparts, lab-grown sapphires are great alternative gemstones at a more comfortable price. The are also available in more colors than natural stones.

Lab Grown Vs Natural Colored Gemstones

When it comes to choosing colored gemstones for wedding rings, there are two main options to consider: lab-grown or natural. Lab-grown gemstones are created in a controlled environment, replicating the natural process of gemstone formation. These gemstones have the same chemical and physical properties as their natural counterparts, but are more affordable and sustainable. On the other hand, natural colored gemstones are mined from the earth, making them unique and rare. They often come with a higher price tag, but are cherished for their natural beauty and historical significance. Ultimately, the choice between lab-grown and natural-colored gemstones in wedding rings depends on personal preferences, budget, and ethical considerations.
