Colourful Engagement Rings: Which Gemstones are Most Popular in 2024?

Joseph George colourful engagement rings

Why choose a diamond like everyone else when you want every engagement detail to be personalised? Coloured gemstones are increasing in popularity, and this year, we’re seeing classic favourites and new iconic colours crashing onto the scene and stealing some of the spotlight. However, diamonds remain the most popular engagement stones.

Experiment with colours and designs, or opt for a gemstone that means something to you. Either way, here are the gemstones that excited new couples ask for in 2024.

Softer-hued stones are making a subtle statement.

The rise in rose gold has led to an increase in requests for soft-toned gemstones. Pink sapphires and morganites (soft pink or peach) complement rose gold rings and give them a feminine, romantic edge. If you’re seeking a flash of colour with all of the brilliance of diamonds, a pink diamond is one of the highest-valued stones.

Take inspiration from actress Teresa Palmer, who was way ahead of the times with her rose quartz crystal set in a rose gold band!

Sapphires are a royal diamond alternative.

Traditionally, the sapphire has been passed through royal generations. Contrary to general understanding, sapphires aren’t just blue. Aside from red, they come in every hue and exhibit different colours depending on the angle, a feature known as pleochroism. A sapphire could be your perfect choice if you want a hard, classic gem that steers away from the typical diamond.

Kate Middleton was given the sapphire engagement ring that previously belonged to Princess Diana, which consists of a 12-carat blue sapphire framed by 14 solitaire diamonds.

Wear the colour of love on your finger.

Coloured diamonds

Red is most commonly associated with love, so rubies are growing in popularity for the ultimate declaration of romance: an engagement. This trend was led by celebrities such as Rihanna, Natalie Portman, and Katy Perry. This durable stone is resistant to damage, making it a perfect way to represent lifelong love.

Katy Perry showed off her Valentine’s Day engagement to Orlando Bloom with a flower-shaped ring and a ruby surrounded by diamonds.

Amethysts make a striking statement.

Amethysts are bold but pretty, and brides-to-be who want to showcase their unique style are increasingly choosing this gemstone. From light lavender to deep purple, there is a beautiful variety of quartz. Amethysts make the perfect ring for the modern bride, with a hardness of 7 and a hue that works perfectly with yellow gold, white gold, and most other metals.
