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!

We had so much fun hearing from so many of y’all who are recently engaged on Instagram a few weeks ago! Since we expect there to be quite a few more proposals coming up with Valentine’s Day around the corner, what better time to share a little antique and vintage engagement ring inspiration? EraGem is an amazing source for estate rings, ranging from intricate vintage pieces to more modern options. There’s something for every bride, and I had fun picking out just a few of my favorites to share with y’all today!

EraGem recently added a page to their website that makes it super easy to find pre-owned modern diamond rings. These estate pieces are not only completely gorgeous, they’re also an eco-friendly option, since no new mining or refining is necessary when you purchase a ring that’s been previously loved.

We can’t wait to hear from new brides-to-be who get engaged on Valentine’s Day! These ruby and pink sapphire rings EraGem carries are so unique and lovely, and would seem extra appropriate given on February 14, don’t you think?

Thanks to a certain princess we all know and love, sapphire engagement rings have found a permanent place on the list of classic ring styles. Sapphires have actually been used as engagement rings since the Victorian era, so EraGem carries some stunning vintage pieces that date back to the 1880’s!

EraGem’s newly redesigned website is incredibly easy to use, and to make sure you love your ring in person as much as you do online, they offer a 60-day money back guarantee, free overnight shipping and returns, and a lifetime warrantee. If you find yourself in the Seattle area, you can also visit their new showroom!

What are your favorite rings from this selection? I can’t stop staring at the oval pink sapphire (top left)!
