The time has come for you to propose to the love of your life and you have to make the long-awaited decision. What ring will you buy? As the saying goes, “Diamonds (or simulated diamonds) are a girl’s best friend” but is that still true? We are in 2019 after all. Here at Modern Gents we think it’s high time that gemstones stepped into the limelight. With that in mind, here are 4 reasons why you should propose with a gemstone this spring.
The Combinations are Endless
With gemstones, every ring has its own unique personality. Diamonds can be mixed and matched in, or the gemstone can be left alone to shine on its own. Every gem has its own story, where it came from, and what it means. What’s more romantic than proposing with a stone that represents endless happiness and love? With Sapphire guaranteeing a healthy, balanced, relationship, why not take a look at our Halo - Pink Sapphire ring?
While diamonds can often break the bank, gemstones may be a better choice for our couples that are on a budget. Opal rings may be a great choice. At times, opal can even have more intense colors than those found in a diamond. Not only this, but with these bright colors, she’s bound to stand out with an eye stopping ring. Our hand crafted Halo - Opal ring made with a sterling silver band would be a perfect choice!
The Meaning and Story of Gemstones
If you remember our earlier article on the 6 colored Gemstones and their meanings, then you know that each gemstone has a rich story and background. These stones can be collected from all over the world, and having a ring on your finger that has come such a long way is a privilege in itself. Some gems were worn by royalty, others were even believed to come from Gods. Why not get the girl of your dreams a ring fit for a queen? You’ll never regret it.
With millenials moving farther and farther away from the societal norms, gemstones are on the rise. Why have the same ring as everyone else when you could have a bright ruby or emerald on your finger. Gemstones are daring, perfect for the girl who chooses to swim against the tide. This beautiful emerald ring is just begging to be shown off to all your friends!
Of course, diamonds (and simulated diamonds) are always a classic choice for engagement and wedding rings. However, if you’re thinking about something a little more unique with meaning, why not choose a gemstone? The rest of your life with your significant other will be off to a very beautiful, romantic start.
