Why Are Gemstone Engagement Rings So Popular?

Gemstone jewellery is popular for many reasons, such as variety. There are many gemstones available to you, meaning there is something to suit most tastes and preferences. Gemstones have been used to make jewellery for a long time, and there’s no sign of them falling out of favour. A considerable number of people opt for gemstones when picking designs for engagement rings.

More and more well-known figures have recently been opting for gemstone engagement rings over traditional diamond rings. These include the Prime Minister’s partner Carrie Symonds, who showed off her gemstone engagement ring in 2020. This ring was an oval-cut emerald that drew comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge’s sapphire ring.



Gemstone Engagement Rings and Spirituality

One of the most common reasons for wearing gemstones is to form a link with the past. In days gone by, people used gemstones due to their religious and spiritual beliefs.

Many people still do, although a large number of people wear them even if they don’t have such beliefs. It’s said that all gemstones have healing powers.



Gemstones for Energy and Empowerment

As each gem represents a planet, many believe they can draw energy from planets and direct them to the wearer. This means someone could benefit from this energy throughout their union with their partner.

Red and pink rubies represent the sun, empowering the wearer to improve their leadership skills and take responsibility.

It's thought that a gemstone's energy improves various aspects of our lives by weakening blockages that lead to poor health. It's no wonder so many couples are opting for gemstone engagement rings.

Anxiety Relief and Gemstones

It’s thought that gemstones could help people with anxiety. Certain gemstones are said to reduce stress and anxiety whilst keeping wearers grounded.

Gemstones are also linked to reductions in recklessness and self-doubt, concepts many people are eager to move away from as they embark on their new lives with their partners.




Gemstones and Royalty

Diana, Princess of Wales, wore a gemstone engagement ring that was then passed down to Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. This ring was an oval 12ct Ceylon sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds.

The gemstone revival has also reached Hollywood, with Orlando Bloom proposing to Katy Perry with an oval-shaped ruby stone with white diamonds in 2019. Experts say more and more individuals are seeking out bespoke rings with coloured gemstones, with demand building each year.

I can’t speak highly enough of the experience with Emma.”

Gemstone Engagement Ring FAQs


While many couples choose diamonds for their engagement rings, other couples opt for coloured gemstones. While diamonds are certainly beautiful, they are not the only option for an engagement ring. Gemstones come in a wide variety of colours, each with its unique meaning and symbolism. For example, rubies represent love and passion, while sapphires symbolise faithfulness and loyalty.

Plus, gemstones can be more affordable than diamonds, making them a good option for couples on a budget. And because each gemstone is unique, a coloured engagement ring can be a truly one-of-a-kind symbol of your love.


When choosing an engagement ring, there are various stones to choose from. However, not all stones are created equal. Some are more durable than others, and some have more visual appeal. Here is a brief guide to help you choose the best stone for your engagement ring:

Diamonds are the most popular choice for engagement rings, and for good reason. They are incredibly durable and have a brilliant sparkle sure to catch your eye. However, diamonds can be quite expensive.

Sapphires are another popular choice for engagement rings. They are nearly as durable as diamonds and come in a wide range of colours, from classic blue to vibrant green. Sapphires tend to be less expensive than diamonds, making them a great option if you're on a budget.

Rubies are another option to consider. Like sapphires, they are very durable and come in a variety of colours. Rubies tend to be less expensive than diamonds or sapphires and are another great option for those on a budget.

No matter which stone you choose for your engagement ring, it is sure to symbolise your love for years to come.


The most popular type of ring is the diamond engagement ring. Diamonds are durable and beautiful, making them a perfect choice for an engagement ring. However, diamonds can be quite expensive.

For couples looking for a more affordable option, gemstone engagement rings are a great choice. Gemstones are available in many colours and styles and can be just as beautiful as diamonds. However, because some gemstones are less common than diamonds, they can be more expensive.


While diamonds have long been the traditional choice for engagement rings, they are not necessarily the best option. For many couples, a more unique and personal gemstone is a better choice. For instance, emeralds are associated with hope and new beginnings, making them perfect for an engagement ring. Rubies are also a popular choice, as they symbolise passion and love. And while diamonds may be the hardest gemstone, sapphires are more scratch-resistant, making them a more durable option for an engagement ring.

Ultimately, the best gemstone for an engagement ring is the one with the most meaning to the couple. Whether it is a traditional diamond or a unique stone, the most important thing is that the ring represents the love between two people.
