30 engagement rings with coloured stones

Perhaps it's down to the Duchess of Cambridge's £250,000 Garrard sparkler, or maybe it's a question of cost since the recession hit. Whatever the reason, it seems that traditional diamond solitaire engagement rings are out and coloured stones are in. Coloured gemstones such as sapphires, emeralds, amethysts and rubies are often more affordable than diamonds, and can also lend a vintage feel to even the most modern of engagement ring settings.
