A Gem To Tell Your Love Story


Every gem brings with it a ton of symbolism. You might choose a Birthstone, opt for a gem mined in your home state, or simply pick her favorite color. Think beyond the diamond and choose a center stone that brings an element of you and your relationship into your ring. 


Add A Pop of Color With A Brilliant Gemstone Engagement Ring

Many couples choose Engagement Rings with traditional designs that feature gemstones instead of diamonds. This is the perfect way to add a pop of color to your Engagement Ring. Plus, gemstones are not as expensive as diamonds, so these non-diamond engagement rings are far more affordable.  

Some of the most popular gemstones for engagement rings include:

  • Ruby
  • Emerald
  • Sapphire
  • Amethyst

From yellow sapphire to ruby, Non-Diamond Engagement Rings are more popular than ever.



Red is the color of passion—so what better way to represent your love than with a ruby engagement ring? Rubies rank a 9 on the scale of hardness—same as sapphire because they're in the same gem family. 
Ruby is the birthstone for the month of July, so it’s the perfect choice for brides who celebrate July birthdays. However, a bride can wear a ruby engagement ring regardless of her birthday. its red color is often associated with love and passion, which makes it perfect for an engagement ring.
Rubies will stand out when paired with silver-colored metals such as platinum and white gold, but they look warmer in yellow gold settings of different pieces of Gemsring Jewelry. The deep red color also works well with rose gold, creating an ultra feminine and romantic setting.



You can also add a pop of color to your Engagement Ring with an emerald gemstone. Emeralds are associated with renewal and rebirth, so they can serve as a symbol for your new life as a married couple when worn in an engagement ring. This gemstone is also closely associated with the spring season, making it perfect for couples who are planning wedding.
Emeralds are more than just the birthstone for May: this precious gem would also make a great alternative engagement ring for someone who loves to stay ahead of the trends. 




Sapphires come in a wide range of breathtakingly beautiful colors, but many people are only familiar with blue sapphires. Regardless of color, these gemstones are often associated with loyalty and romance, which are two pillars of a successful marriage. Therefore, a sapphire engagement ring can symbolize a couple’s commitment to faithfulness and love.
One of the most famous engagement rings in the world features a vibrant, blue-colored sapphire. Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with an 18-carat sapphire engagement ring that originally belonged to his mother, Princess Diana. This proves that sapphire engagement rings are truly fit for royalty!
Sapphires look best in white gold or platinum settings, however they are also found in yellow gold vintage-inspired settings.


An engagement ring doesn’t necessarily need to have a diamond as a center stone. In fact, the traditional diamond in an engagement ring was only introduced as a marketing campaign by acclaimed jeweler, De Beers back in the 1930s and it stuck! Nowadays, Amethyst engagement rings have emerged as a great alternative for engagement rings.


There are no rules when it comes to choosing the right engagement ring, so follow your heart and find the gemstone at Gemsring that speaks to you the loudest!
