From colored diamonds to colorful gemstones, there’s a whole technicolor spectrum to choose from: royal blue hues, lavish canary yellow diamonds, fiery red rubies, and emerald green…well, emeralds, to name a few. So if you’re looking for wedding ring stones other than the typical diamonds, you’ve come to the right place.

If you’re ready to take the plunge into colorful wedding bands but want to keep it classic, one of the best colored stones for wedding rings is sapphire. Most traditional in its blue form, sapphire wedding bands and sapphire engagement rings have been worn by royalty from ancient to modern times (hello famously blue hued royal rings on Kate and Princess Di).

Multi-colored Wedding Rings

Not only are sapphires one of the toughest stones out there, they’re available in way more colors than most people realize. A multi-colored wedding ring like The Kelly gives a taste of all the possibilities you have with different colored sapphire stones. Read on for sapphire meaning, durability and types.

Want a colored wedding ring that’s as durable as it gets? Diamonds are the hardest natural material on the planet, and they just so happen to come in all the colors of the rainbow. The Diamond Color Chart gives you an idea of all your color diamond options, ranging from faint to deeper yellow. The more unique colored diamond like pink diamonds, blue diamonds and black diamonds are known as fancy diamonds or fancy colored diamonds. Colored diamonds occur naturally but are also produced through a heat treating process. If you want a natural gray diamond, brown diamond, or dark gray black, rough diamonds are beautiful and have more of an ethereal, organic feel.

Red Colored Wedding Rings

If you want a colorful ring that’s a little more head turning, ruby wedding rings are a bold option for those who love a bright pink to fire engine red color. Depending on the ruby gemstone hue and the rings overall design, the look of a red wedding ring can run the gamut from classic sophistication to blood red goth vibes. Globally inspired, The Janrace band gets it’s eclectic look from mixing hot pink rubies in rose gold with intricate milgrain filigree.

Red colored stones in a white metal band is a timeless style with just a hint of edginess. Punctuating rubies with diamonds and setting in platinum is a traditional take on a colored wedding ring.

Green Colored Wedding Rings

Green wedding bands are a perennial fave because there’s an undeniable glam factor. Emerald rings are super striking, and yet still manage to be a classic, as one of the most ancient stones used in fine jewelry. Set in a yellow gold or rose gold band for medieval royalty vibes.
