Using Birth Stones in Engagement Rings
Birthstones make a beautiful and unusual choice for an engagement ring. If your bride-to-be has a unique sense of style, a birthstone engagement ring could be the perfect choice. However, despite your best intentions, any gemstones that are set into a ring for everyday wear must be of a certain level of hardness in order to reduce the likelihood of damage. If her birthstone isn’t suitable for use as the largest stone in the ring, you could use it as a secondary or tertiary stone in the setting – adding a touch of colour. Whether you choose a gemstone for its colour or its symbolism, it’s guaranteed to create a stunning ring.
