Some women dream of a single diamond engagement ring and some women want something more bold, something unique and special that they can feel passionately about. Coloured gemstone engagement rings can be a perfect way to express how rare and special your love is.
Exceptional gemstones are all different. No two will look identical. When you buy a ring from a jewellery shop that is on every high street, they will source stones that look identical so they can make hundreds of the same ring for different customers. Stones that can be sourced in their hundreds or thousands aren't rare and special. Our gemstones are sourced from specialist dealers who can trace the origin of the stone. They only ever have one stone that looks identical to the ones we select. If we order a new stone, it will be a different colour and different proportions. Our stones are rare and special. Each ring has a unique setting made to fit the stone perfectly. This makes the stone much more secure. It's a lot more work to make a new ring for each individual stone so the profit we make on each ring is much lower than if we mass produced like other jewellers but look at just how beautiful and special these rings are. The following eight rings are all in my shop and for sale on my website right now.
This ring has a stunning, intense green tourmaline. The tourmaline is oval cut and measures 11mm by 8.5mm and weighs 3.53ct. It is set in 9ct rose gold and has a 3.5mm round brilliant cut diamond on either side. The diamonds have a total carat weight of 0.33ct. G colour VS clarity. It is £3000
This is a breathtaking pear cut morganite set in a contemporary twist design. The morganite measures 12mm by 7.5mm and weighs 2.5ct. There are 24 brilliant cut diamonds set framing the morganite.
The ring is made from a high palladium 18ct white gold alloy. This means that the 18ct white gold is not yellow but is alloyed with palladium which is much more expensive than silver which can be used in other white gold alloys. The use of palladium in the alloy not only makes the metal white it also makes it harder. The ring is highly polished and given a final finish with rhodium. The ring should be polished and the stones checked once a year but you won't see a yellow colour on the ring from wear as you sometimes do with mass produced items made from a poorer quality alloy. This ring costs £2995.
Morganite engagement rings blush with an irresistible beauty. The morganites in our jewellery designs are mined in Brazil and Madagascar. To mine in these countries, you need a government certificate. All mining is done under government regulation so there is no possibility of the stones funding illegal wars or criminal activity.
The stones we buy are cut in Germany by very highly skilled lapidarists, so no children are involved in the cutting process as can be the case if the stones you buy are cut outside of Europe. The lapidary we use buys rough morganite from these two countries and then, after the stones are cut, they are graded and sold based on their quality rather than where they are sourced from so it is not possible to say if they come from Brazil or Madagascar but it is possible to guarantee that they are all produced and cut ethically.
This morganite is not irradiated and the stone won't fade or change colour.
This ring is set with a 4.25ct red tourmaline which has a checkerboard cut. The checkerboard cut gives the gemstone a mesmorising quality as the light travels through the stone. It has two round brilliant cut diamonds, one on each side of the tourmaline. The diamonds are G colour VS clarity. Each diamond is 0.11ct giving the ring a total diamond carat weight of 0.22ct. I will only ever make one of this design. It is £3700.
Tourmaline has a hardness of 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs scale making it suitable to be worn everyday.
This ring would make a very eye catching engagement ring for someone who loves handmade, quality pieces of jewellery that no one else has.
I fell in love with the subtle shade and warmth of this lemon quartz stone. It is briolette cut and is cushion shaped, measuring 10mm by 10mm. I immediately thought of a thistle when I saw it and so I paired it with two round cut amethysts. It is a contemporary interpretation of the Scottish emblem that is said to have offered protection to Scots soldiers. Story has it that the enemy tried to sneak up on the Scots to attack them but were pricked by the thistle causing them to scream out and alert them to the threat. This ring is £850.
This is a 9ct white gold flower cluster engagement ring set with a 6mm blue sapphire 0.75ct, surrounded by twelve brilliant cut diamonds, 0.02ct. Total diamond carat weight of 0.24ct. G colour VS clarity. The feminine shape of the flower combines with the potent protective symbol of the eye used by many cultures to keep the wearer from harm. This ring is £1780.
This is an exceptionally beautiful blue pear cut sapphire and diamond bridal set in yellow gold
This beautiful engagement and wedding ring set is made in 9ct yellow gold. It is set with a pear cut sapphire 6mm by 4mm and two round brilliant cut diamonds G colour VS clarity.
The wedding ring is set with five round brilliant cut diamonds G colour VS clarity.
The rings are available separately or as a set. This design can also come in different precious metals and with different gemstones. The engagement ring is £790 and the wedding ring is £575.
This is a pear shaped tanzanite with two baguette diamonds set in 18ct white gold. The tanzanite is 1.58 carats and the diamonds are 0.18ct of a carat each. It is £4500.
This 18ct white gold ring has a 0.41ct radiant cut emerald with a 0.20pt princess cut diamond on either side. Most emeralds are step cut but the radiant cut of this gemstone is much more unusual. It has more facets and this really brings the emerald to life. The ring is made with a sweeping upward setting that allows a wedding ring to sit next to it without it needing to be shaped.
Total diamond weight 0.40ct, total emerald weight 0.41ct.
In addition to these rings we also source gemstones and make engagement rings for customers. We guide our customers through the whole process of designing the ring and we work with budgets between £800 to £30,000.
