Colored Stones and Metals There’s no question that the past decade’s favorite engagement ring pick was forged from white gold or platinum and set with a white diamond. Every good trend must come to an end, and we’re now seeing more ring choices glowing with color. The priciest are colored diamonds in yellow, pink, blue, chocolate and even edgy black. The next tier offers other precious and durable stones like rubies, emeralds, tanzanites and sapphires of all hues. Much more affordable, but just as eye-catchingly colorful, are the semi-precious picks in citrine, blue topaz, garnet and peridot. Don’t forget the metal – yellow gold is making a serious comeback (with a special subset of yellow diamonds set in yellow gold bands), and rose gold is truly the tint du jour. For those that can’t decide, have it all with a two-tone engagement ring in white and yellow.
