Rocks On

From ravishing rubies to scintillating sapphires, wear some colour on the digit that matters with these eye-catching designs


There’s no rule that wedding bands have to be a plain band. In fact, there’s now such a wide choice of vibrant designs – which are being eagerly lapped up by colour-loving couples – that the engagement ring has some serious competition.

Whether you opt for a stunning cushion cut centre stone, colour mix cluster ring, or subtle smattering of delicate jewels such as a pavé diamond ring, some vibrant sparkle adds instant personalisation and meaning.

Particularly perfect for couples seeking rings that represent you as a couple, choose a symbolic splash of colour – whether it’s your favourite shade or your birthstone – for something as eye-catchingly on-trend as it is timeless and meaningful.

Black / Onyx
Reflecting the new wave of Gothic and Victoriana, onyx (or dark diamonds) is stunning proof that black never goes out of fashion, pairs with everything and smacks of classic, slightly edgy style. Onyx symbolises earth and death and is reputed to possess grounding and healing properties as well as fending off negativity.
Other gemstones include: grey / diamond, brown / smoky quartz

Dark Blue / Sapphire

HRH The Duchess of Cambridge is still inspiring many brides-to-be to opt for the deep ocean ‘something blue’ sparkler, which, featuring heavily in groom’s fashion, is an apt way to stylistically mirror your man. Sapphire has long been associated with peace, happiness, honesty and communication, making it the perfect symbol for a marital union of the same denotations.
Other gemstones include: turquoise / aquamarine, light blue / topaz

Off-white / Pearl

Ancient Persia dubbed them ‘the tears of the gods’, Federico Fellini described them as ‘the oyster’s autobiography’, and they’ve long garnered worship status. The oldest-known and only gems to derive from within a living creature, pearls are a contemporary classic that complement pretty much every bridal look. Plus, they symbolise wisdom, loyalty, purity and integrity, and are said to strengthen relationships and karmic balance.
Other gemstones include: clear / quartz, silver-white / moonstone

Green / Emerald

Synonymous with nature, fertility and wellbeing, a green stone is the ideal accompaniment to an eco, country or woodland-themed wedding. Cleopatra’s favourite, emerald has vast healing powers and promotes self-knowledge and balance.
Other gemstones include: dark green / jade, multi-green / opal

Pink / Morganite

The ultimate colour of unconditional love and the symbol of compassion, pink is both a highly symbolic and fashionable choice for everything from the dress to the décor. Blushing brides can select a variety of stones such as morganite, which is said to open the heart chakra and purge stress. Rose quartz is equally as captivating and potent, helping to heal emotional wounds and calm relationships while encouraging an appreciation of the arts.
Other gemstones include: red / ruby, orange / Fire opal, amber / topaz
