5 Popular Gemstones for Engagement Rings in 2023



When considering buying an engagement ring, you may think it is better to be safe than sorry and may decide to opt for a ring with the traditional diamond in a pretty cut.

However, as any jeweler will tell you, diamonds aren't always a girl's best friend.

So, with 2023 finally here and Valentine's Day around the corner, what are the most popular stones to choose when buying an engagement ring?


Diamonds


Okay, so it's unavoidable to talk about when it comes to engagement rings, but this part will be brief.


Diamonds have been traditionally associated with love and commitment, making them a popular choice for engagement rings. They are also a symbol of eternity, purity, and luxury. Diamonds are also the birthstone for April. If you want an engagement ring with a unique diamond cut, like a princess cut, head to Chapter 79 to look through their engagement rings.


Sapphires


Do you remember back in 2011 when there was the Royal Wedding between Kate Middleton and Prince William? Do you remember how popular sapphire rings were due to Kate's engagement ring having a large sapphire at its center?


Sapphires are typically associated with nobility and faithfulness and are often given as engagement rings to symbolize the depth and permanence of love. The blue color of sapphires is also thought to represent loyalty, making them a popular choice for engagement rings. Additionally, sapphires are known for their durability and hardness, making them a good choice for a ring that is worn daily.


Rubies


This deep red stone has a prominent link to love and passion, making it ideal for an engagement ring. In some cultures, rubies are also thought to bring good luck to the wearer, making them a desirable choice for an engagement ring.


So, if you are looking for a genuinely striking engagement ring, one where the centerpiece is a ruby is a good choice.


Tanzanite


Tanzanite is a blue-violet or even indigo variety of the mineral zoisite, which is only found in one location in the world, in the Mererani Hills of Tanzania, Africa.

Tanzanite is a relatively rare gemstone that is said to symbolize love and commitment. It is often associated with the color blue, which is traditionally associated with trust and loyalty. Some people also believe that tanzanite has spiritual properties and can help to promote healing and inner peace. So, this could be an ideal stone choice if your fiancee-to-be is spiritually minded.


Alexandrite


Alexandrite is a rare variety of the mineral chrysoberyl. It is known for its color-change property, which means that it appears to be different colors under different types of light. Alexandrite appears green in natural sunlight or fluorescent light and red, purple, or reddish-purple under incandescent light. The color change is due to the presence of trace amounts of chromium in the crystal. It is mainly found in Russia and Sri Lanka, Brazil, Tanzania, and Madagascar.


Alexandrite is said to symbolize balance, joy, and harmony. Its color-change property is often associated with change and adaptation, making it a fitting symbol for a commitment to a life-long partnership. The green color of Alexandrite represents growth, abundance, and health, and the red color symbolizes passion, love, and energy.
