What Coloured Stone Engagement Rings Say About You

17th November 2022

by Semrah

We love diamonds – they’re hardwearing and durable and sparkle under any light. They’re a symbol of purity and love which is why they make excellent engagement rings. But did you know that colourful stones are becoming more and more popular than ever before?

Many gemstones actually come in multiple different hues. Diamonds can be found in almost any shade and sapphires appear in every colour apart from red (those are rubies). Tourmaline is one of the most diverse gemstones and can even be found with stripes of different colours in one stone.

If you’re trying to decide on an engagement ring for your beloved, or are exploring your options, take a read through this guide to find out what their favourite engagement ring says about them.

What colour should an engagement ring be?

While white or clear stones like diamonds are coveted for engagement rings, they weren’t always the traditional stone to propose with and It wasn’t until the 1940’s that diamonds became the popular choice they are today.

Stones of all different colours have been favoured by different civilisations over the centuries for their rich hues and different meanings. Ancient Greeks favoured emeralds or rubies, other civilisations preferred sapphires, and others still gave plain rings of gold or silver without any stones at all.

Choosing a coloured gemstone ring has boomed in popularity over recent years as more and more people are choosing to opt for something more unique or to express their personality through their engagement rings.

White or clear gemstones

Gems that are white or clear in colour such as diamonds, moissanite, and opals represent purity, sincerity, and true feelings which is why they make excellent stones for engagement rings. These stones are also timeless and effortless and represent loyalty and love.

Someone who wears a diamond, pearl, or opal engagement ring probably isn’t afraid to keep things simple and classic and like to let these stunning stones speak for themselves.

Red rings

Ruby, Garnet and other red-hued stones stand for passion, love, and joy and are the perfect symbol of romance. Those who wear red engagement rings are probably passionate and fiery and not afraid to show it. They love deeply and fiercely and are loved by their partners the same way. These red stones are thought to encourage stable, loving, and happy relationships.

Ruby Engagement Ring

Blue stones

Whether deep blue like the ocean or clear like a cloudless sky, blue is the colour of tranquility and peace. Engagement rings made with sapphires, blue topaz, aquamarine, and tanzanite are said to bring good communication, harmony and respect into relationships.

Those who wear blue stones on their fingers are probably calm and collected, thoughtful and wise. They may also have a unique style and want to break away from traditions a little, making sapphires and other blue stones the perfect engagement ring for them.

Sapphire Engagement ring

Green gemstones

Green symbolises springtime, nature, growth and freshness. It brings to mind lush gardens and beautiful forests. It is also a colour associated with money. According to gemstone lore, green gems in engagement rings promote a life full of wealth, fertility and health.

Green stones in engagement rings are thought to promote a like full of wealth, fertility, and health. Green symbolises springtime and new growth and brings to mind lush gardens, beautiful forests, and spending time in nature. Throughout time, emerald has been known as a symbol of truth and love. In ancient Greece and Rome, it was said to be the gemstone of the goddess of love and hope, Venus. While peridot, derived from the Greek word, peridona, which means “give in abundance”, is thought to bring prosperity and good fortune to the wearer.

Those who wear green engagement rings are probably great lovers of nature and love their partner dearly as green stones can also represent a deep, faithful love for a partner.

Purple gems

Purple is a rich and mysterious colour that symbolises intuition, inspiration, and wisdom. Opting for a purple stone such as amethyst in your engagement rings is thought to bring excitement and adventure to your relationship and remove obstacles. Those who wear purple with pride are probably the adventurous type who aren’t afraid of a challenge. They’re a fierce and loyal to their partner and friends and might be particularly wise or astute.

Pink engagement rings

Pink is the colour of unconditional love, self-worth, and compassion. Stones such as pink tourmaline, pink diamonds, and pink sapphires are beautiful, delicate stones that exude femininity and self-worth. It is an unusual colour that can redefine what a traditional engagement ring looks like and is perfect for whose who want something a little different without stepping too far away from convention.

Those who wear pink stones aren’t afraid to think outside of the box a little and make their own traditions and forge their own path but are also thoughtful, kind, and content with their life.

Yellow engagement rings

Those who wear yellow gems are probably spontaneous, loyal, and embody the very joy that these stones convey. They proudly shed tradition in favour of forging their own path in the world and are excited to experience new things.

Yellow Diamond Engagement Rings

Black and champagne diamond rings

Black and champagne diamonds have the same meaning as their white counterparts but which a couple of added sentiments to make them really unique. Black diamonds have the added menaning of power, charisma, certainty, and passion and are great for those who want a ring that fits their edgy personality.

The light brown shade of champagne diamonds is perfect for those who prefer a stone that is unique but on the more subtle side. It's believed that these stunning diamonds connect the wearer with the earth and nature so someone who favours this stone is probably quite down to earth and realistic, and knows exactly what they want.
