Colored Gemstone Wedding Rings
Wedding rings have, above all, sentimental value. Nevertheless, many people appreciate their power of suggestion regarding the marital status of the carrier. Women and men want for people to notice and know that they are married and having a colored gemstone ring is one of the easiest ways. But there are some certain things that you need to know before going in this direction. So read on.
Gemstones are like candies. They come in various shapes and colors, they all charm you from the very beginning, but all the euphoria will only last until you ask about their prices. If you were dreaming about emeralds, keep in mind that they are the most expensive gems on the market. Even diamonds are more affordable than them, but these are not colored, unless you can afford a ring set with black diamonds. Then come the rubies, another elitist option. Their intense red shades have sure tempted you by now, but the prices… not really. Amethyst is probably a more reasonable choice. However, the market also has some other offers for you to check.
Things to consider
Wanting a colorful and sparkling wedding ring can turn into a disastrous decision in the absence of some artistically knowledge. For example, a green gem should be rather combined with silver, platinum, white gold or even green gold, but not with yellow. Speaking of yellow gold, it does not really fit with pink gems, but with more solid colors, such as deep red or black.
Matching the colors is also important when using multiple gems. An intense shade is usually associated with diamonds because of their transparency.
If you cannot afford gemstones but you are still looking for something special, consider pearls. Regardless they are naturals or cultured, they are colorful and beautiful.
Even though colored gemstones are more often used on engagement rings, they can look well on wedding rings or bands too. They usually have rather geometrical shapes and are considerably smaller. Eternity rings are the most popular, usually alternating two different types of gems. In addition, wide bands entirely covered with tinny gems are often required, the models varying by the colors of the disposed gem rows. However, colored gems are also used for creating unique art craved rings so feel free to search on the market.
