Tag: emerald engagement rings

When I began pulling inspiration for my future engagement ring back in my dating days, of course I considered a classic diamond. But, this was 2010, Prince William and Kate had just gotten engaged, and so I also loved the idea of a sapphire ring. After trying and failing (!) to convince my Mom to let me use her right-hand sapphire ring as my engagement ring, I was excited to consider some colored options when John and I visited our local jewelry store to browse.

Sadly, the (otherwise very nice) clerk immediately steered us away from colored stones, and I reluctantly gave up the idea. Had I known about Leibish & Co. at the time, today I might be rocking a pretty blue ring on my left hand, but since I’m not, at least there’s hope for all you fancy colored diamond lovers out there! I’m excited to show you what Leibish & Co. has in store today, including, of course, sapphire engagement rings :)

Leibish & Co. is an internationally-recognized specialist and online dealer of natural fancy colored diamonds and colored diamond jewelry, like ruby engagement rings. The business began in 1979 and today is a leading supplier to renowned jewelers, designers, and manufacturers throughout the world, as well as stylish and sentimental brides and grooms! We have a soft spot for family businesses, and Leibish & Co. definitely qualifies – it’s helmed by a father and his five children.

Leibish & Co.’s stones are mined in Australia, Africa, India, and Russia and all come from legitimate, conflict-free sources. I was also happy to see that their selection is one of the largest online, with fancy and ideal cuts in hues, clarities, and sizes set for any budget.

In addition to ruby and sapphire beauties, they also have an enviable collection of emerald engagement rings. To browse their full selection and learn more about colored diamonds, visit their website!

And I’d love to hear: did you ever consider, or do you proudly wear, an engagement ring with a colored stone?

    These are so pretty! I have a normal diamond, but I love to see a colored stone engagement ring! I am also partial to sapphires, as it’s my birthstone, but I love emeralds too.

    I love that this sweet company is being highlighted (and amazing use of the word helmed!). I’ve always dreamed of a colored side stone and I love the two tone settings shown here!! Side note: I’d love to see a post on choosing your own ring vs being surprised. I have a pretty specific dream ring but would also love to see what my future hubs comes up with… I know there are so many perspectives and I’m curious what others think!

    Thanks!

How about a little bit of sparkly eye candy to kick off Friday? We know many of our readers are not engaged quite yet, but may be on the lookout for their dream engagement ring, so we love showing y’all some of the gorgeous designs that come across our inboxes. I have three fabulous ring designers to introduce you to today…and too many Pinterest-worthy sparklers to count!

I know “something different” is a top priority for many brides-to-be, and especially if you’re inspired by heirloom-worthy styles, Gerard Leon could be a great source for you. Gerard Leon is a curated collection of vintage and antique rings–their collection of Art Deco rings is especially stunning!

P.S. Recognize the florals peeking out behind these rings? It’s our Blooming Belles feature from V7–so fun! We love the creative backdrop for a ring photo!

In the same way that a trip to a big city can make all the difference when you’re looking for your dream wedding dress, the ring of your dreams can sometimes mean a plane ride to a celebrated jewelry destination. Bridal Rings Company is a must-visit location for engagement rings in Los Angeles‘ jewelry district–just look at how many memorable and different settings they offer!

Last, but certainly not least, Jean Pierre Jewelers is a designer retail store located in Woodland Hills, California. The family-owned company creates engagement rings that make a fabulous statement–those emerald beauties are fit for a modern day Scarlett O’Hara, don’t you think?

I’d love to know, which of these rings caught your eye the most? I’d have to go with the Jean Pierre Jewelers oval beauty in the photo at the bottom left!
