Selecting an engagement ring with colored diamonds or gems needs a little thought. While beautifully toned diamonds can and do go with everything, some brightly colored gems, such as rubies or sapphires, may start to lose their appeal eventually. Will you still be wearing navy in 20 years? What will you do when you want to wear colors that clash with your engagement ring?
Those with extremely active lifestyles may prefer platinum for their engagement ring as this will wear a lot better than gold. Flatter engagement ring settings will face less trauma than higher settings that get caught and knocked around more frequently.
Rose cut diamonds are experiencing a surge in popularity as well. This is probably due to a resurgence in vintage style engagement rings, and possibly the fact that they are visually very different to contemporary cuts offering fire and brilliance. Rose cut diamonds can be found in antique jewelry or through enterprising diamond cutters who are now offering the cut in new diamonds.
