With twinkling lights, cosy nights and festive fun all around love really is in the air. And what could be a better holiday gift than a sparkly new engagement ring? If you’re considering proposing this Christmas, then let us inspire you with our top engagement ring picks. They will certainly make this Christmas one to remember!
Ruby Engagement Rings
Nothing says festive like red. From Santa’s suit to Rudolph’s nose, this is truly the colour of the season. As such, ruby is an ideal choice of gemstone for a Christmas bride. Engagement rings that feature a pop of colour are growing in popularity, and we can see why! They are the perfect way of adding some personality to a ring, and extra sentiment too. Ruby symbolises passion, love and nobility; wonderful sentiments to embrace with an engagement ring. Antique ruby rings are stunning for Christmas and beyond, and will undoubtedly bring a lifetime of happiness to you and your partner.
Emerald Engagement Rings
Deck the halls with boughs of holly- and some sparkling emeralds too! Evergreen décor is a Christmas staple; think holly, Christmas trees and of course mistletoe. These plants keep the world beautiful even in winter, and so their stunning green hues are popular each year. Take inspiration from these and set yourself up for an enduring love by choosing an emerald engagement ring. Not only are emerald rings stunning, but they are available in a wide variety of designs. From antique Victorian to Art Deco there is a style out there for every bride-to-be that is sure to be her favourite gift of all.
Zircon Engagement Rings
Snow may not be a guarantee this Christmas; however a ‘yes!’ from your partner certainly is if you present her with a zircon engagement ring. Zircon is the birthstone of those born in December, which makes it the perfect gemstone to propose with this Christmas. Zircon rings are the epitome of wintery luxury. This is especially true when they are crafted in white gold or platinum. Their ice cool tones and vibrant stones are reminiscent of a crisp winter’s morning. This means that every time your fiancée glances at her stunning ring, she will be reminded of your idyllic Christmas proposal.
Diamond Engagement Ring
Christmas is all about custom, and there is nothing more classic than a diamond engagement ring. Solitaire rings are enduringly popular, and with good reason! However, why not put a twist on tradition and choose a diamond cluster ring instead. This stunning yet subtle variation is even better if it happens to look like a snowflake, in keeping with the festive fun. If you’re hoping to be sentimental as well as stylish, then an antique diamond ring is the one for you. Not only are these beautiful, but just like snowflakes and your fiancée herself, they are all truly unique.
If your bride likes something a little different, slip this impressive Victorian ring into her stocking. This antique piece truly encapsulates Christmas cheer, whilst still remaining the epitome of luxury. Festive yellow gold sets the tone, which is then enhanced by a beautiful collection of sparkling amethysts and emeralds. Snowball-esque pearls complete the piece to perfection. The lucky person who receives this will certainly have a Christmas to remember!
If you’re thinking of proposing this Christmas, then we hope this guide has provided you with some engagement ring ideas. Whether your future fiancée prefers to go all out or keep things subtle, there is a ring out there to suit both her tastes and the joy of the Christmas season.
