All three ladies wear classic engagements rings with coloured gems.

Their engagement rings are timeless and elegant and each have a subtle modern twist. This twist is achieved by a luxurious pop of colour from coloured gemstones and we think it is simply magnificent!

Here is why we love this style of engagement ring

Selecting a classic engagement ring design that will stand the test of time makes perfect sense. You plan to wear this ring for the rest of your life. You want it to grow and evolve with you. You want to love it forever. Choosing a timeless, classic ring design is a smart idea.

However, as much as you love a classic design, sometimes you want a bit more. You want your engagement ring to be more unique. Something you can add your own personality to. Something that will standout a little more.

This is where coloured gemstones can transform a traditional, classic design into something truly exceptional, and this is why we love them. Here are some examples of classic engagement ring designs transformed.

Multiple gems, play with textures, varied colour metals

Or if you're looking for something a bit less traditional but still following a classic design try adding multiple coloured gemstones and different metals/textures to spectacular effect.

Whatever your style , there is no denying it, coloured gemstones can truly transform and elevate classic engagement ring designs.
