Latest Celebrity Engagement Ring Trend? Gemstones

Are all those massive engagement rings you’re seeing lately making you just a little bit envious? You can’t open a magazine these days without seeing an  advertisement; with a diamond so huge that it looks like it should be floating in a cocktail with salt around the rim. Then you switch your attention over to Facebook/Pinterest/Twitter, where it seems that your entire feed is filled with the same old engagement rings, women of all ages flaunting their rocks that you’ve seen a hundred times before. Most wedding rings are diamonds, but that doesn’t mean that it’s your only choice.

In case you didn’t hear – Color is in! and that applies to engagement rings too. It’s an option that allows women to get the luxurious look they want, while standing out from the rest. It’s a jewelry trend that is on the rise and let me tell you: it’s not coming down.

 You’re sick of the standard diamond engagement ring and if you’d rather have something colored, there’s no reason to feel bad about it. Why? Because there are so many fabulous sets that feature colored stones. You will be proud to wear one and you’ll love having something that’s different from all the other girls’.

 Ever since Prince William proposed with Princess Diana’s famous 18-carat sapphire engagement ring that turned Kate Middleton into a Duchess, there’s been a growing demand for vibrant-colored stones. Jewelers are even making separate categories for colored stones. From Halle Berry’s emerald haloed rock to Jessica simpson’s 5-carat ruby, it’s clear that unconventional sparklers are having a moment. If you’re wondering about the latest celebrity engagement ring trend? Gemstones take the cake.

These colorful and unique rings aren’t just fashionable, they can also have a special meaning. Jessica Simpson’s Ruby center-stone is her birthstone, while Elizabeth Hurley’s sapphire is the birthstone of her fiancé. However, Women today aren’t just sticking with birthstones. some are going after rings that signify a special month such as the one that they met their fiancé, or the month of the proposal.

Sure, huge white diamonds grace the fingers of many A-List celebs. But there are many that have stepped outside of the box and have chosen a more unique and beautiful option with colored gemstones. From emeralds to sapphires and even colored diamonds, here are some celebrity rings that dazzle the red carpet.

Elizabeth Hurley 

It’s pretty hard to find a ring as beautiful as the stunning Liz Hurley. But I think Australian cricketeer, Shane Warren, who proposed with this amazing three stone ring with a square-cut sapphire with two diamond baguettes came pretty darn close.

Blake Lively 

Blake Lively’s engagement ring from husband Ryan Reynolds features a stunningly flawless fancy light pink oval diamond set in rose gold with pave set diamonds.  This ring is almost as beautiful as this couple. This simple setting does wonders in showing off the center stone. It’s not determined what the karat weight is, but it must be a bit considering the large pink diamond nearly reaches her knuckle!

Carrie Bradshaw 

Yes, I know she’s not a real person. But this black diamond ring created quite the frenzy for non traditional and  off-colored diamonds. Her 5 carat black diamond was set in 18k white gold with 80 pave diamonds. Mr. Big gives Carrie this stunner at the end of second Sex and the City movie. Why black, she asks? “Because you are not like anyone else” he says.
