Today is the first day of Autumn and even though we'll miss the sunny fun of summertime, we are looking forward to the striking palette that is bestowed upon us in the coming months.  Over the years we've worked with couples who have used colored stones in their engagement rings, embracing this colorful time all year long!  Inspired by these couples, we've created this roundup of some of our favorite alternative engagement rings!

Colored gemstones are selected for their birthstone attributes, their historic and cultural meanings and their unique beauty.  Any stone can be set in an engagement ring, or any other type of jewelry for that matter.  To find the right stone for you, learn more on our Choosing A Stone page.

The Baguette Spark Engagement Ring was the ideal choice for the baker it was made for!  This delicate ring features a baguette ruby flush set in recycled 14k rose gold.

Pretty in pink!  Rebecca created the Lotus Engagement Ring in recycled 14k rose gold to highlight the stunning peach-pink oval morganite center stone, and completed the look with diamond shoulders and down the shank of the band.

The Lightyear Engagement Ring is a truly one of a kind design!  Showcasing a show-stopper cabochon oval moonstone, the faceted side stones of blue topaz and emerald represent the couple's birthstones, bezel-set in recycled 14k white gold.


The Lady Drop Commitment Rings is a great set of dual engagement rings.  This set features a matched pair of pear shape London blue topaz bezel-set in recycled sterling silver.

The Infinity Engagement Ring is a wonderful custom design featuring a rare kite-shape tsavorite garnet prong-set in recycled 14k white gold.

The Sapphire Halo Rose Gold Engagement Ring is a classic with a twist.  This sapphire engagement ring becomes a lovely "something blue" for always, bezel-set in a halo of white diamonds on a hammered ring of recycled rose gold.


Each of these rings was a custom design, working in collaboration with Rebecca.  If you are interested in tailoring any of these designs or if you would like to work with Rebecca on a new design, please don't hesitate to contact us and set up a time to discuss your ideas in person or by phone.
