54 Engagement Rings With Colored Stones

For a ring selfie that's just as unique and colorful as the bride wearing it!

Updated 10/17/17

We love a classic around here, but we can't deny that colored engagement rings are having their moment. Thanks to some of our favorite celebs—Blake Lively, Olivia Wilde, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Carrie Underwood, Jessica Simpson and of course, Kate Middleton— those colored gemstones long cast aside for a bright clear diamond are back in the spotlight.

Royal sapphires (just like Kate), morganite, ruby gems, emeralds and canary diamonds are just a few colored stones worth turning our attention to. Aside from saving your future fiancé a few bucks, choosing a gemstone can make your engagement ring truly unique. Whether you’re inclined to incorporate your favorite color or birthstone or opt for an heirloom piece of jewelry, a colored stone can ensure your engagement ring stands out from the crowd. It's a great opportunity to make this meaningful occasion even more sentimental.

This doesn't mean shunning the whole "diamonds are forever" thing. Set your sapphire in diamonds (sigh Kate Middleton) with a bauble encrusted halo, look for a style with diamond side stones, or consider a pavé diamond band if you don't want to completely forgo the classic.

More the unconventional type? We’ve rounded up a variety of alternative styles to from clusters to avant-garde cuts to experimental settings.
