Gemstone engagement rings are becoming more and more popular. If you’re pondering one, have you considered a shimmering moonstone engagement ring? Known for having calming and balancing energies, moonstone comes with a gorgeous iridescent sheen, and is seeing an upsurge in popularity in jewelry with a bohemian appeal. They're associated with lunar mystery and magic, and have been used to treat insomnia, sleepwalking, ward off nightmares, and promote vivid dreams. Impressive! Not to mention, a moonstone engagement ring totally reminds us of our beloved childhood mood rings. Admit it, you totally had one.

Moonstone is hardly a modern fixation, however. Romans believed the stone was formed from moonbeams and associated moonstone with lunar deities, as did the Greeks. Hindu mythology thought moonstone was made from the moon’s ethereal light, while in India, moonstone is considered a sacred and magical “dream stone” that can bring beautiful dreams at night. Basically, moonstone equates to good juju, and what better vibe than that to associate with your engagement ring?

The best part about a moonstone engagement ring? There’s one perfectly suited to every style and budget. The gem comes in a range of colors—yellow, gray, green, blue, peach, and pink—determined by the thickness of the stone. The thinner the moonstone, the more light that is scattered to create its alluring iridescence, making it more valuable. Transparent blue moonstone is the rarest and most esteemed while a thicker moonstone appears almost white, but is much more affordable.

Moonstone is stunning set in everything from silver to rose gold. Iterations come in a range of cuts like traditional oval and pear to a modern hexagon. Moonstone is gorgeous in multi-stone rings or as clusters, too. A diamond halo, trillion side stones, or set onto a pavé band makes for an increasingly glamorous effect.

Whether you’re an alternative bride seeking a diamond alternative, hoping to channel your birthstone (let’s hear it for June babies), or simply seeking a more affordable option to diamonds and precious gems, a moonstone is a beautiful choice.

Check out our favorites in a range of cuts and settings. At the very least, we recommend treating yourself to one for the good vibes.
