The ring on the left might not meet the traditional concept of an engagement or wedding ring but, young couples are today willing to keep some distance from tradition and customs. Bridal gems are increasingly being worn with gemstones rather than diamonds, though diamonds might be allowed some space for accent glitter. If diamond jewelry sellers are grumbling, they might want to know that the most recent spurt in gemstone bridal jewelry was initiated by none other than the British Royalty. In the early 1980s, Prince Charles wed Lady Diana - one of the most talked about weddings of our time. The royal engagement was marked by a big blue sapphire and diamond ring, the diamonds were not given center stage but rather seemed to laze around the astounding Ceylon blue sapphire gem in the center. This interesting fact seemed to embolden couples, they realized that the diamond ring was not all that necessary. The Lady Diana sapphire engagement ring, did wonders for blue sapphire - sales shot up, prices hit the roof and jewelers got serious about gemstones in bridal rings. History repeated itself a few decades later, Prince Williams (son of the late Lady Diana) wedded Kate Middleton. While Prince Williams himself did not wear any spectacular jewel for the engagement event, he dipped into mother's jewel box and picked the same sapphire diamond ring that she (his mother) had worn for her engagement. The ring was remade with the same oval blue sapphire and sentimentally worn by Kate Middleton. Jewelry experts once again realized that the already healthy demand for bridal gemstone rings would get a fresh dose of vigor. Quality blue sapphires from Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) and even fine gems from Madagascar looked towards the sky and hit all time highs in terms of price.
Yes, colored gemstone bridal rings can be more merciful on your wallet but, not everyone is shifting loyalty from diamond bridal jewelry for the lower price points. Diamond bridal rings became so very common that, they got to be boringly predictable. Style conscious brides realized that, a diamond bridal ring could not allow them express their individual style and personality. They got more involved in exploring natural colored gemstones and they liked what they saw. Just for the record, a small collection of natural colored gems are actually rarer than diamonds. Talk about gems like demantoid and tanzanite - supply limited to the extent that, jewelers do not attempt to create mass popularity for them.
Kaisilver reports that, more than half of the custom bridal rings that it crafts each month flash gorgeous colored gemstones. While this might not be surprising for one of the world's leading online custom jewelry provider, other jewelers seem to feel the same way. Gemstones offer more options in terms of color, shades, cuts, varieties, durability and price points. Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald are obvious choices for fine bridal rings with gemstones but, other gemstones have made an impressive entry too. Handpicked spessartite, demandtoid, tanzanite, morganite and tourmaline have pleased many young brides. With buyers willing to pay more for special occasion jewels, prices for these gems have moved confidently upwards.
