The timelessness of a clear diamond ring is undeniable. Its classic allure never seems to fade. However, in recent years, another trend has taken hold: colourful engagement rings. “More and more customers are looking for unique ways to make even the simplest design bolder and more beautiful” explains Taylor & Hart’s creative director, Jason D’Heureux.

It seems that among the traditional sea of clear crystal diamonds is now a ripple of colour, promising authentic elegance.

Jason D’Heureux: “Coloured gemstones including sapphires, rubies and emeralds, known for their iconic and vibrant shade, offer a wide spectrum of colours to express your creativity in a unique and personal fashion. From Kate Middleton’s heirloom sapphire engagement ring to Katy Perry’s vintage-inspired ruby and diamond cluster, we’re seeing royals and pop stars alike embrace coloured engagement rings”.

Whether inspired by personal style, money or ethics, colourful engagement rings are growing in popularity.
