TRENDS: Colored Stone Engagement Ring

Monday, October 1st, 2018

No matter the season – the soaring, sun-soaked skies of Summer or the brisk and oh so chilly breezes of Fall and Winter – it’s always proposal time for someone somewhere. So, today, we look at another of this year’s most popular engagement ring trends: “The Colored Stone Ring.”

Just as multi-stone, rose gold and band-like engagement rings are currently trending, fine jewelers are also experiencing growing requests for colored stones in place of the classic Diamond center stone. To follow this trend, consider choosing your birthstone as your center stone, or opt for vivid, deeply hued stones like Sapphires, Emeralds, Tourmalines or Rubies.

You can play with the colored center stone trend by choosing your favorite gem and then accenting it with Diamond halos or side stones to set off its richness and intensity. Or, you can play it a bit more safely by choosing a beautiful Diamond as your center stone and then accenting it with your birthstone or other colorful gems as side stones or a decorative halo. Fancy Yellow Diamonds are also an elegant and timeless way to try this trend.

No matter your choice for an engagement ring, the point is to find – or design – something that you truly love. With an experienced custom designer to assist you, you can confidently buck tradition knowing that your finished ring will be a beautiful masterpiece that’s just as unique as you are.

Fall signifies its arrival with a change in the color of leaves and foliage – making for rich displays of color. So, is the case for the Opal – the gemstone of those with fall birthdays in the month of October.

Beautiful Opals come in a varied “rainbow” of colors, from milky white to mysterious, fire-streaked blue and black stones. The Black Opal is most rare –often rivalling the diamond in pricing.  Next in importance is White Opal, which is characterized by a lighter body color such as white, yellow or cream in addition to unique color plays. Other types of sought after stones include the Fire Opal, or Mexican Fire Opal, which is a transparent to translucent deep orange-red stone. Fire Opal can also feature unusual plays of color – a rarity that when it occurs, results in the stone being called a Precious Fire Opal.

A Black Opal Stone

The name opal is derived from the Greek word Opallos, which means “to see a change (of color).” It is often associated faithfulness, protection and loyalty. The opal stone is also believed to enhance one’s vision as well as creativity.

The alluring Opal is most often used as a stunning center stone for rings, pendants and cabochons.


No matter how far away their exotic origins, you can find all of your favorite gemstones much closer to home at the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, located in the beautiful red carpet district of Studio City, California. The beautiful showroom offers its clients stunning diamond, colored stone, gold and platinum pieces designed to fit a range of fine jewelry budgets from large to small.

For those lucky enough to be born in May, the envy-inspiring emerald is their official birthstone. However, stunning emeralds are not just for May babies. Throughout history, this precious green gemstone has been sought by both royals and common folk, alike. In fact, the deep and richly-colored green beauties have reigned as one of the world’s most desirable gemstones for centuries.

The emerald is considered the most precious and valuable gem of the beryl family of stones. For admirers of the storied gem, the allure of the emerald is all about the color, color, color. Emeralds are prized – and often revered – for their intensely brilliant green color ranging in hues from yellow greens to bluish greens to intense dark greens. The stones have often thought to be “magical” because of their tendency toward an almost mystical radiance. The deep green glimmer of the emerald is unmatched in the world of gemstones and is considered among the “precious four,” a short list of high-end gemstones that also includes the diamond, rubies and sapphires.

The Meaning of Emeralds

The name comes from the old French word ‘esmeralde,’ which is a derivative of the Greek word ‘smaragdos,’ simply meaning ‘green stone.’ The rich and magnificent green of the emerald has been thought to convey harmony, nature, beauty and love. It is often associated with Springtime, resurgence and re-growth.

Where To Find Beautiful Emeralds

Colombia is the most widely known source for the highly desirable dark green emerald, although the stones can be found in and mined from many places around the globe including Africa and across Europe. However, probably the oldest known emerald finds were once made near the Red Sea in Egypt.

Find your own “enviable emerald” much closer to home at the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, California. The stunning showroom offers its clients stunning emerald jewelry designed to fit a range of fine jewelry budgets from large to small. Voted “Favorite Jewelry Store” by the Los Angeles Daily News, the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City carries one the largest selections of precious colored stones and EGL & GIA certified diamonds anywhere – often at more than 50-75% below retail. The store also guarantees their stones to be “conflict-free,” which is increasingly important to today’s consumers.

Creation – This is where our more than 40 years of experience really shines. Then, to ensure your happiness and ultimate satisfaction, our expert jewelers use a combination of design techniques including handcrafting and computer aided technology to create a wax prototype of your piece. This prototype is then presented to you for inspection before moving on to the next step.

Casting & Setting – Next, your piece is cast in your favorite metal – platinum, 20k, 18k and 14k carat white, yellow or rose gold. Our master jewelers then set your selected stones, using the latest techniques including micro pave’, channel, bezel, engraved and other current designs with high or brush-polish finishes.
