How Do You Choose the Right Stone?

Choosing your engagement ring stone is a combination of preference, style, and lifestyle. See what colors you like, and you may be surprised to find out that it’s available in a diamond or gemstone option you didn’t know existed,  e.g: pink sapphires, blue diamonds, or peachy morganite. We only work with high quality diamonds and precious gemstones that are durable enough to be worn everyday and last a lifetime. We do not recommend emeralds or opals unless you are committed to high levels of care and caution. We do not recommend moonstone engagement rings, turquoise, pearl, wood, plastic, or bone engagement rings.
