Why Colored Gemstones & Non-Traditional Engagement Rings Are Here to Stay

At Gems Are Forever, our Beverly Hills staff are Graduate Gemologists (G.G.) from the Gemological Institute of America and pride ourselves in keeping our fingers on the pulse of the latest industry trends.

Last year, proposals were taking place around the world with what was initially believed to be a popular trend in 2021 — colored gemstones and non-traditional engagement rings.

Now they are here to stay. Here are a few great reasons why.

They Are Unique & Non-Traditional

While traditional weddings and diamond engagement rings are still mainstays in the matrimonial industry, colored gemstones like ruby, sapphire, and emerald engagement rings create a unique and untraditional style that can be customized to fit the soon-to-be-spouse’s personality.

These beautiful gemstones also lend themselves to different cuts and designs, instead of solitary stones, which do not follow rules or traditions, thereby making them as unique as the person who wears them.

Online Shopping Provides Endless Options

Couples can shop — or at the very least get ideas — for different styles of engagement rings on social media, big chain stores, and even independent jewelers who use their websites to reach a wider customer base.

The internet has changed the way the world shops for nearly everything — including engagement rings — and has opened the door for consumers to step away from the traditional designs they would typically shop for in person.

When shoppers have more options, they can realize non-traditional rings that fit their unique relationship, and really allow their partner’s ring finger to shine.

Gemstones & Non-Traditional Engagement Rings Breathe New Life into Heirlooms

When families pass jewelry down through generations, they often consist of more than just diamonds. Inherited vintage rings and antique jewelry can be transformed into intimate and meaningful custom-designed engagement rings using repair and restoration services.
