Gemstone engagement rings
The usual perception for engagement ring is a classic solitaire diamond, although the use of white gold ring with Emerald, Ruby or Sapphire for central stone is not an exception. If a gemstone engagement ring is your choice, bear in mind that engagement rings have to be designed for heavy duty wear, since most of them are worn full time, every day. One important matter to consider is the hardness and durability of the stone. If you consider color in your engagement ring, sapphire is the best choice with hardness of 9 and broad variety of colors as well as ruby, if you have red color in mind. Stones with hardness less than 9 on Moh’s scale of hardness and especially ones with inherent fractures and inclusions, like the emerald, have to be worn cautiously and removed during periods of physical activities.
