June

Alexandrite Engagement Rings When life is full of dozens of moving pieces, imagine a beautiful birthstone centering you and bringing you towards a sense of balance - both in life and in love. Alexandrite is often cut in a cushion or round shape because these shapes capture the stunning light hues that come from the stone. The other well-known birthstone for June, pearl, isn't recommended to be worn as an engagement ring because of its delicate nature. Pearls can lose their trademark iridescence if exposed to hot water and are very porous, making them susceptible to all household chemicals or lotions & fragrances which they absorb.

Unique and stunning, this ring is set in 10k rose gold brought together with a cushion-cut alexandrite stone accompanied by brilliant-cut diamond accents. This fun and vibrant purple stone is a beautiful complement to any love story - and is rated excellent for everyday wear!

August

Peridot Engagement Rings When seeking out an engagement ring with the signature August stone, you're looking for the peridot - the true jewel of protection. In fact, the name peridot originates from the Arabic word, 'faridat' which means gem - so it looks like the peridot was the birth name for the entities of gemstones, right? (Wishful thinking!) 

This signature peridot love knot engagement ring features a stunning round peridot center stone, with accompanying diamonds delicately placed along with the intricate and winding band. To top off this incredible piece, the setting (each curve) is set in a beautiful 10 karat white gold ring.

October

Opal Engagement Rings (the stone of clarity) Those looking to wear their October birthstone as an engagement ring - take special care! While a notoriously fragile stone, its kaleidoscope of rainbow shades and shapes is unique, making this stone and it's wearer that much more special. But remember, opals might not be an ideal choice for all-day, everyday wear – they can be quite sensitive to their environment and are prone to cracking when frequently exposed to high heat or cold temps.

Taking you back to the 1920s, this beautiful vintage-inspired gemstone ring features an oval center surrounded by diamond clusters and is crafted in a 10 karat yellow gold setting. It'll bring about feelings of nostalgia and a life full of love with your partner - just be careful when wearing it every day!

November 

Citrine Engagement Rings (the stone of prosperity) Prosperity and rareness can go hand in hand. When it comes to the citrine gemstone, these two words perfectly represent the wonders this stone brings. The naturally occurring light yellow hue of the quartz stone can actually be referred to as lemon quartz. Many November babies love the warm colored stones that remind them of the autumn colored leaves. It's also a fun spiritual caveat that citrine was noted in ancient history as a gift for the earth presented by the sun. 

This trendy yet sophisticated citrine and diamond ring is crafted in lustrous 10-karat yellow gold and features an octagon-cut citrine at its center with 26 diamonds and its delicate band. Instantly add a touch of color and elegance to any ensemble with this versatile gemstone and diamond ring.

IMPORTANT to know if you're choosing a gemstone engagement ring! Remember that some gemstone rings are better suited as engagement rings than others. Looks aside and speaking strictly in terms of practicality, here's the deal: for daily wear, we do not particularly recommend choosing pearls, opals, or moonstones as everyday-wear engagement rings. Emeralds, amethyst, and blue topaz are reasonable options, while sapphire and rubies are the most durable of all outside of diamonds. This is an important consideration for jewelry you'll be wearing day in, day out, and hope to pass on to future generations.
