Here’s a question for ya: What makes a diamond unique? Sure there is a lot of detail if you are into the 4Cs of a diamond (read my thoughts here), but seriously…there is not much variation to the eye, diamonds are all icy crystal and glittery in appearance.
But colors abound in gemstones with various intensities, hues, brilliance and character. Colorful gemstones preferred for a unique engagement ring.
In my world of custom made ring design, it is all about being unique. A ring should reflect the person you are, your spirit, your senses, your soul. After all you are unique, unusual, uncommon…just you, you, you.
Yes, a diamond is traditional but how about creating a custom ring with one or more colors? A colorful gemstone will always bring a smile every moment of every day. It says “This is so me.” It will always be coveted by friends and colleagues because it is so unusual. With gemstones, thousands of colors and designs will blow your mind.
Personally, I love color. Talk about unique! While we often think of gemstone colors being consistent and saturated-blue, green, red-but in reality there are infinite ranges of color variations in the gemstone itself. In the major gemstones such as sapphires, emeralds and rubies there is amazing mesmerizing variation. With a broader listing of gemstones, there are thousands of variations in color from one moment to another, generally based on the surrounding lighting. Then…think of alexandrite, diaspore, even opal where the color changing is amazing.
Whether the color is the center stone or the accent stones, you have a ring that is totally unique, totally you.
Most often, the use of color reflects a person’s preference toward their favorite spectrum of light such as blue, purple, red, yellow, purple and so on.
Here is the same design but using colorful alexandrites and diamonds. Alexandrite is a rare color-changing gemstone that exhibits reds, greens and oranges. It is not only beautiful but it has a high hardness rating. It is said to be a gemstone of prosperity and longevity, balancing mind with soul, it promotes spiritual growth.*
This is a three stone ring designed with rubies, a favorite of many. Actually a ruby is a red sapphire and very high on the hardness scale. A ruby is available from natural sources or lab created. Ruby symbolizes love and health, royalty and power, dignity and beauty.*
This is a Tsavorite, a rare gem from the Garnet group. It has a brilliant green color, lively and spirited, a favorite of mine over any other green gem including emeralds. It has excellent hardness for a ring. It is a gem of wealth in all its positive aspects–financial, creative, emotional, artistic and even physical health.**
A Spessarite Garnet is also known as a Mandarin Garnet, with generally an orangish color range, brilliant with a great sparkle and a high hardness rating. It signifies a willingness to help others. It also stimulates aspects of creative abilities and energies, encouraging one to take action toward one’s dreams, visions and goals.**
