Whether you are thinking about commissioning a completely unique piece of jewellery, or customising a design you have seen online, we are here to advise on gemstone choices to make sure you pick the perfect piece.
Choosing The Right Gemstone
Diamonds are a classic choice, but as well as traditional white, coloured diamonds can come in an array of shades (such as orange, red, yellow, green, champagne, cognac). Diamonds are robust gemstones, perfect for everyday wear.
Rubies & Sapphires
Rubies and sapphires are also perfect choices for an engagement or everyday ring, as they are very hard stones, so they can withstand normal daily wear.
Rubies come in different shades of pink and red; this classic red colour is most common.
Sapphires also come in a range of colours, so there’s a lot of potential for variety.
Semi - Precious Gemstones
Garnets, Aquamarines and Tourmalines (shown below) are examples of some of the more commonly used semi-precious gemstones used in jewellery. They are softer stones, but can still good choices for engagement or everyday rings, if treated with care. If you work with you hands, cycle or do other physical activities, remove the ring when doing this, as this will avoid damaging the stones.
