A Colorful Engagement: Reasons to Choose a Colorful Ring & Our Top Picks
Dare to be Uneek means dare to think outside the box. In a world of classic diamond engagement rings, which we adore, there’s always charm in going the nontraditional route: colorful diamonds and gemstones. With a little color in your ring, your sparkle will stand out from the rest and carry a unique significance.
“For every 10,000 colorless diamonds, there is one colored diamond in the world,” says Breanne Demers, vice president of Uneek retail partner Gunderson’s (a family-owned jeweler with three stores in Sioux City, IA; Sioux Falls, SD; and Omaha, NE) and part of the Natural Color Diamond Association‘s Board of Directors. “This provides an opportunity for the bride or groom to create a truly rare and unique engagement ring using colored diamonds in the design. If you think about it, how many pink or yellow colored diamond engagements have you ever seen?”
Benjamin Javaheri, Uneek Jewelry owner and designer, is a particular fan of yellow diamonds.
“Aside from it being rare, a yellow diamond evokes a warm, sunshiny, happy feeling, so when a woman is wearing it, she will always be reminded of the warmth and happiness that surround her,” he says.
Aside from colored diamond, emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and opals are trending among millennials, who are more often opting for the rainbow hues, according to Bride Magazine. Some women are even incorporating their birthstones into the design, making it that much more of a personal statement.
That’s another reason to choose the colorful route. The gems and hues of these engagement rings have the potential and opportunity to reflect your unique love story in their historical symbolism and brilliance. For example, emeralds are said to embody unity, compassion and loyalty, while rubies are considered the stone of passion and energy. Whatever the hue, your hand will hold a one-of-a-kind ring that reflects your journey and will look extra fabulous on you all the while.
“The blue sapphire is almost always linked to royalty,” said Angelo Dela Cruz, Uneek director of marketing, advertising and special events. “It has, after all, been the darling gemstone of queens and princesses for ages, so I guess that’s kind of why a lot of women are hesitant to consider it as a center stone for their engagement rings. They think it’s too prim, too ritzy, or both. Working with sapphire rings every day, though, I have come to realize how versatile they are. Yes, there is no shortage of glamour there, but certain sapphire ring styles—especially the ones with modern silhouettes, like this oval-centered three-stone from our Royal Blue Collection—can also be down-to-earth. They look as good with jeans as they do with gala gowns! Oh, and this ring was also featured in BRIDES magazine’s December 2017/January 2016 issue.”
Here are our Top 5 Uneek styles that we’re loving for a stunning and colorful engagement ring
Uneek Oval Pink Diamond Engagement Ring with Pink Diamond Inner Halo and White Diamond Outer Halo, in Platinum and 18K Rose Gold
Delightfully feminine, this beauty features an oval-shaped fancy light pink diamond center. What makes this ring so dreamy is the delicious two-tone double halo — pink rounds pave-set down the rose gold inner halo and white rounds lining the platinum outer halo. We have some major fans of this ring too: The pear-shaped version of it was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine!
Uneek Cushion-Cut Yellow Diamond Engagement Ring with Scallop-Effect Halo, in Platinum and 18K Yellow Gold
This gorgeous piece makes the most of warm tones. We played up the romantic feel of a cushion-cut fancy yellow diamond by surrounding it with an exquisite scallop-effect halo of shared-prong-set round diamonds. More diamonds embellish the bridge for an additional glam effect.
Uneek Ruby-and-Diamond Three-Stone Ring with Oval Ruby Center and Pave “Silhouette” Double Shank, in Platinum and 18K Yellow Gold
A shimmering, solitary oval ruby dominates a dramatic backdrop of platinum, gold and diamonds — the perfect stage for its pure, unadorned outline and vivid color. Along with a touch of 18K yellow gold, it’s accompanied by two matching trapezoid diamonds and 32 diminutive rounds set along a double band in our signature “Silhouette” shape. This makes for an enchanting showstopper of a ring.
Uneek Three-Stone Ring with Emerald-Cut Green Emerald Center and Pave “Silhouette” Shank, in Platinum
What better cut for a green emerald than an emerald cut? In this case, an extravagant 2.34-carat gem, ever so carefully faceted to best display its verdant depths and mystical color. This regal gem is embraced by matching trapezoid diamonds and its edges defined by bright white diamonds all around. A double platinum band in our signature “Silhouette” shape is set with additional round diamonds. This one is sure to dazzle everyone and be a delight to gaze upon every day.
Uneek Oval Blue Sapphire Halo Engagement Ring with Ribbon-Style Crisscross Upper Shank, in 18K White Gold
We borrowed one of the more popular engagement ring styles from our Radiance Collection and put a 3-carat oval blue sapphire on it, and the result is just breathtaking! There are 80 round brilliant cut diamonds U-pave set along the halo and down the very delicate-looking crisscross style double shank. What makes this style even more eye-catching is the openwork design in the gallery. This deep royal blue is for the boldest of loves!
