Gemvara Birthstone engagement rings

Have you considered a birthstone engagement ring?

Gemstone engagement rings are becoming more and more popular as couples are ditching traditional diamonds and embracing vivid, radiant colour. Birthstones make an already romantic declaration of love even more personal and I just love the thought of popping the question to your significant other using a birthstone!

Gemstone experts Gemvara appreciate the significance of colour and specialise in combining the craftmanship of fine jewelry with the ability to customize designs.  Incredibly, they offer a choice of 29 different gemstones and 9 precious metals. So the unique, bejewelled birthstone engagement ring of your (or your love’s) dreams could be just a click away!

Don’t know your birthstone?

If your birthday falls this month (September), your birthstone is a regal sapphire – which comes in an array of dreamy shades from pink and yellow to the traditional deep blue hue. Good to know, right?

Gemvara, have created a super helpful birthstone guide, which explores the meanings behind the dazzling stones and colors for each month. With Gemvara you can choose any ring you fancy and insert a special birthstone for a one of a kind, custom design, or find the perfect one amongst the exquisite pieces they’ve already crafted.

Below, I’ve selected my favorite birthstone ring picks for every month for even more gorgeous gem inspiration!

January – Red Garnet

January begins with a bang, the Lotus Ring speaks volumes, using so many elegant design details to bring your eyes to the sultry, deep red garnet at the center.

The pomegranate hued gemstone pairs nicely with both white and rose gold, making this ring so lusciously dramatic, I can’t turn away.

February – Green Amethyst

Dare I say it, I wish I were born in February. Gemvara and myself both agree that this green gem (described as both sage and leek) matches just about any color in one’s wardrobe, and all skin tones, both warm and cool.

Pairing the green amethyst with simple diamonds on the Matilda Ring helps enhance the beautiful sea foam color, which alone is less obvious to the quick passerby.

March – Aquamarine

Rose gold and aqua tones are such an attractive color combo. We’ve all seen the two paired on wedding mood boards for years now by no accident.

Opposite on the color wheel, the aquamarine stone pops without being too overtly blue, perfect if your significant other loves subtle, intricate details.

I love the way the Dahlia Ring‘s diamond petals stack between each other, and can only imagine how greatly they sparkle.

April – Black Diamond

Now, you’ll notice on the birthstone guide that April has two stones, diamond and black diamond. If we show you a regular diamond ring, what fun would that be?!

Choosing a black diamond ring may seem unusual, given its minimal sparkle compared to a traditional diamond, however I absolutely adore this black diamond Enchanting Flower Ring.

Against the rose gold shine, the diamonds have a matte look, which is so cool and understated. The floral design insights a pretty vibe while being the perfect ring for those who love a cool, hip, modern style.

May – Emerald

Gemvara writes on their guide that emeralds “open the heart chakra, promoting unconditional love, fertility and domestic bliss” were there ever more reason for an emerald engagement ring, I can’t imagine what.

Emeralds are so stunning, and so vibrant, I love the idea of letting the stone itself take center stage in this cushion cut Olivia Ring. Surrounded by sparkling diamonds, the proud emerald makes this ring the ultimate statement piece.

June – Alexandrite

How incredible are the colors of Alexandrite?! June babies are spoiled with a stone that changes between all shades of green, blue, red and purple in different light.

The Nine Band Ring is a refreshing change from the traditional engagement ring.  The five alternating alexandrite stones, catching light at different angles on the band, will all shine varying shades at once, making this ring so dazzling and unique.

July – Ruby

Through the ages, rubies have been a popular and coveted stone. Of all the birthstones, this gem may be  the most common alternative to the traditional diamond, making it a safe choice for a personal proposal.

Scrolling through the ruby designs on Gemvara, so many jump out as favorites, likely thanks to its prevalence across decades of fashion and film. While oohing and ahhing over quite a few Art-Deco pieces (rubies often speak 1920s in my mind) ultimately, I am entranced by the modern round cut approach of the Christine Ring, using accented diamonds and a rose gold band.

August – Peridot

Fun fact, I have a funny obsession and intrigue for volcanos, growing up at the base of one as a child. Geology buffs like myself will love to know that peridot gems are formed under intense pressure and heat in volcanos. The stone is also known as “Pele’s tears” in Hawai’i, the infamous goddess of fire who rules the volcano of Kilauea.

The Camille Ring shows off the unique, green shade of peridot, with richer and deeper emeralds on each side. I love the very green, earthy feel for such a significant land forming stone.

September – White Sapphire

Sapphires are known for their unrivaled brilliance and a longevity that allows one to pass the stone down for generations.

It’s tough to choose between the many bright colors, but given its sparkle I can’t get over the white sapphire.  To accentuate the dazzling white stone, I love the cushion cut Candace Ring, giving off the most awe-dropping sparkle effect.

October – Pink Tourmaline

When warmed, tourmaline crystals become electrically charged, making the gem a cleansing, positive stone.  I don’t know about you, but I’ll take any piece of jewelry that claims special healing powers.

Coming in a range of colors, I love how electric pink the Olivia Ring appears, while the rose gold band compliments and softens the overall look.

November – Citrine

Citrine is named for the Latin word for lemon, thanks to its bright, sunny color.  What better gem to pair with a classic yellow gold band?

I can’t help but smile looking at this beautiful round cut Lilly Ring, it reminds me of a cheery, Spring daffodil.

December – London Blue Topaz

The traditional birthstone for December is a light, sky blue topaz.  However, the regal look of the Oval Ballerina Ring deserves the more dramatic London blue topaz stone.

Similar to amethyst, topaz compliments a vast array of colors and tones, making this ring so versatile.  As a December gal, I can imagine this ring sparkling well alongside any holiday ensemble.
