Stylish Engagement Rings for Men

Fri, 11/27/2020 - 23:39

 

For couples who want a physical symbol of their commitment and engagement rings are a great choice for both partners.

Several male celebrities have sported engagement rings in the past few years, which may be contributing to the trend’s rise in popularity. Ed Sheeran wore an engagement ring made for him by his now wife, Cherry Seaborn. Before marrying his wife, model Luisana Lopilato, Michael Bublé wore a plain band as an engagement ring to honor Luisana’s Argentinian heritage, where it’s common for both men and women to wear an engagement ring. Men in Latin American countries will often wear an engagement ring on their left hand that they’ll move to their right hand after the wedding. When engaged to Jennifer Hudson, professional wrestler David Otunga wore a platinum ring with square cut diamond accents in a masculine studded design. Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka both wore engagement rings for years until their wedding in 2014.

Along with celebrities, we’re also seeing this trend rising with Brilliant Earth couples. Millennial and Gen Z couples in particular seem to gravitate toward this new tradition, since it shows an equally visible commitment from both partners. As traditional gender roles change, it’s becoming more common for women to propose to their male partners as well! For same-sex couples, there aren’t strict rules or traditions around buying each other engagement rings, but fiancés often like to show the world through engagement rings that both partners are taken.

A male engagement ring can be a stylish and attractive way to show off your love and commitment to your partner. To give you an idea of some of the many ways you can rock a “mangagement” ring, we’ve pulled together some of our most unique and popular men’s wedding bands.

Diamond and Gemstone Men’s Rings

Gemstone details can add an element of distinction to a men’s band. Simple accents like a single row of round pavé diamonds, channel set sapphires, or a sleek baguette diamond give a unique and luxe look to a men’s engagement ring or wedding band. Setting sparkling gemstones against a brushed matte surface also creates an attractive contrast. These rings are a great choice for men who enjoy showing off their style and want something that will set them apart from the crowd.

Austin Diamond Ring

Helix Diamond Ring

Horizon Sapphire Ring

Arista Eternity Diamond Ring

Amador Diamond Ring

 

Insignia Engagement Ring

Men’s Rings with Unique Designs

For those who want something unique but understated, a traditional band with a twist is a great option. Discrete details like the black rhodium grooves of the Rainer Wedding Ring are a subtle way to add unique elements to your ring. The Ember Wedding Ring, with its choice of a yellow or rose gold high polish interior contrasting with a matte white gold exterior, is also a popular choice for men who prefer the look of white gold or platinum but want to have a matching element with a partner who prefers the warm hues of yellow or rose gold. Structural components like the hammered finish of the Canyon Wedding Ring or the lustrous twist of the Mobius Wedding Ring are also popular options.

Canyon Hammered Ring

Classic Men’s Wedding Rings

Classics never go out of style! Although traditional classic rings might seem the simplest, there are still distinctive details like brushed matte metal finishes and beveled edges that make them unique in their own right. These rings are perfect for men who want their ring to seamlessly blend with their everyday style.

December Birthstones: Their History and Meaning

Wed, 11/25/2020 - 19:08

 

Although this time of year is strongly associated with holiday hues of red and green, there are many different colors to choose from when it comes to selecting birthstone jewelry for the December birthday in your life! From the light, bright blues of turquoise, the rich hues of blue topaz, and the many shades of zircon, you’re sure to find the perfect gift.

We offer many fine jewelry styles featuring blue topaz that would make the perfect gift for any December baby. Additionally, beautiful turquoise and zircon stones can be found featured in our collection of one-of-a-kind vintage rings. Discover the fascinating background behind December’s brilliant birthstones:

Blue Topaz: Love, Peace and Clarity

Topaz has been sought after for centuries, and many believe it got its name from the Island of Topazios in the Red Sea when it was discovered by ancient romans. Topaz becomes blue when it is heated, either naturally or artificially, and can vary in intensity. Throughout history, this beautiful blue stone was thought to have healing properties that brought peace and clarity and that could even dispel magic spells, sickness, and anger.

In more modern history, blue topaz has been a favorite among the European aristocracy. Cate Middleton regularly wears a pair of blue topaz and diamond earrings for social occasions, and celebrities like Cate Blanchett, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez have all worn blue topaz on the red carpet. London Blue Topaz is one of the richest and beautifully unique shades of blue, and this is the shade of blue topaz Brilliant Earth uses for its fine jewelry.

Caring for Blue Topaz

Like all crystals, topaz can be brittle and should be treated with care. However, it still ranks 8 on the Mohs scale of hardness which is right behind sapphires. When cleaning topaz, avoid ultrasonic or steam cleaning. Instead, use hand-warm water and a bit of soap, and wash your topaz very gently with a cloth or a soft toothbrush, patting it dry afterwards.

Turquoise: Ancient Amulet and Victorian Favorite

Ranging in color from bright robin’s egg to pastel blue and bluish green, turquoise is one of the oldest known gemstones. This December birthstone has been prized for thousands of years by cultures ranging from the Aztecs to the ancient Egyptians (who used it to decorate King Tut’s tomb) to the Persian empire. From ancient times to today, people have ascribed special powers to turquoise. Native American tribes of the Southwest wore turquoise as an amulet believed to offer protection, while in ancient Persia (and modern day Iran) some believe wearing turquoise can ward off evil. Over the centuries, turquoise has acquired a reputation for protecting people from misfortune. Consider a one of a kind vintage turquoise ring to celebrate the December birthday in your life!

Although the gem itself is ancient, the name is relatively new:  dating from thirteenth century France, the word “turquoise” meaning “stone from Turkey”, originated when the gems were brought from Turkey to Western Europe. Turquoise cabochons are often found in antique jewelry from the Victorian and Edwardian eras, and Queen Victoria gave her bridesmaids turquoise embellished brooches as gifts.

Caring for Turquoise

As gemstones go, turquoise is a bit fragile, so we recommend taking special care when wearing turquoise fine jewelry. High heat can damage its surface or cause discoloration, and exposure to some chemicals, cosmetics and even skin oils can change its color. Clean turquoise with warm soapy water, but avoid steam or ultrasonic cleaners. Our jewelry specialists would be happy to answer any questions on how to properly care for your turquoise jewelry pieces!

Zircon: Beauty from the Earth’s Earliest Days

Zircon is another gem featured in dazzling December birthstone jewelry. Although Zircon isn’t as well-known as some other gems, this stone is a celebrity among geologists. The oldest rock ever discovered was a zircon found in Australia dating 4.4 billion years, nearly as old as the planet itself (the oldest diamonds are 3.3 billion years old). If you’re shopping for someone born in December, a piece of zircon jewelry would make for a timeless treasure!

Zircon can be found in a rainbow of colors, including blue, brown, green, orange, yellow, red and even clear. Clear zircon is one of the most brilliant non-diamond gems, and was often used as a diamond alternative in the nineteenth century. According to the American Gemological Society, folk wisdom says that zircon has the power to relieve pain, protect travelers and prevent nightmares.

Caring for Zircon

Zircon is fairly durable, but it’s not as strong as sapphires and diamonds so you should avoid wearing or storing it in harsh conditions. If a zircon has been heat-treated to produce a certain color (many blue zircon stones have been), prolonged exposure to light could lead to the gem changing back to its original hue. Clean zircon with warm water and gentle soap, but don’t use steam or ultrasonic cleaners with this gem.

Final Thoughts

If you’re a December baby, what do you think of your birthstones—do you have a favorite?  Do you own any birthstone jewelry?  Let us know your thoughts on  Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter or in the comments section!

Popular Moissanite Engagement Rings

Fri, 11/20/2020 - 19:36

 

Discovered by Henri Moissan in 1893, moissanite is a brilliant gemstone born from the stars.

Moissanite particles were first discovered in Arizona, within a crater formed by a meteorite. Although initially mistaken for diamonds, moissanite particles were found to be composed of silicon carbide, making them chemically and physically distinct from their carbon counterparts. As naturally occurring moissanite is incredibly rare, moissanite available today is created in a lab, making the gemstone an eco-friendly choice that results in minimal environmental impact. Beyond their environmental benefits, moissanite engagement rings are cost-friendly and loved for their fire and brilliance, making them great alternatives to traditional diamond rings. Discover our favorite moissanite engagement rings below!

Four Prong Petite Comfort Fit Ring

A classic and timeless choice, the Four Prong Petite Comfort Ring features a delicate band that focuses attention on the sparkling center stone.

The graceful Viviana Diamond Ring features shimmering diamond accents that adorn its band and gallery, creating subtle sparkle around the center gem.

Aria Diamond Ring

Unique and timeless, the Aria Diamond Ring features pear-shaped diamond accents that delicately frame the center gem. A thin precious metal band that gently tapers in the center adds to the Aria’s refined look.

Beautiful Non-Diamond Engagement Rings

Sat, 11/07/2020 - 17:11

 

Non-diamond engagement rings seem to be increasingly popular. These distinctive ring styles, which usually feature colored gemstones at the center, are a gorgeous way to express your love.

A big center diamond is by no means a requirement for a beautiful engagement ring. Many brides and grooms prefer the pop of color that a sapphire, emerald or other colored gemstone provides. At Brilliant Earth, we are excited to offer a broad range of non-diamond engagement rings that will set your heart (or your future fiancé’s) aflutter.

Most Popular Non-Diamond Engagement Rings

The most popular non-diamond engagement rings are those that are both beautiful and hold up very well to everyday wear. Most brides expect to wear their rings all the time and are reluctant to take them off, and some gemstones stand up to daily wear and tear better than others. That’s why we usually suggest sapphires to couples looking for a non-diamond engagement ring, especially for women with very active lifestyles. Sapphires score very highly (a 9 out of 10) on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, which rates minerals on their ability to withstand surface scratching. In fact, one of the only things that can scratch a sapphire is a diamond (and we can’t imagine a scenario in which that would happen in your daily life!).

The most popular sapphire color is rich royal blue, most recently made famous by the sapphire and diamond engagement ring worn by Kate Middleton, and originally worn by Prince William’s mother Diana. This traditional sapphire color is exquisite and flattering to every skin tone. Brilliant Earth offers an extensive collection of sapphire engagement rings. You can also create your own sapphire ring on our website by first choosing your unique sapphire and then selecting your ring setting and preferred precious metal when prompted.

Sapphires are available in a variety of brilliant colors beyond blue—think yellow, pink, green, teal, peach, and red. Because sapphires come in every color of the rainbow, you can select your favorite hue, the most flattering tone for her skin, or something to match her eyes, and create an incredibly personalized engagement ring. Color can make all the difference in non-diamond engagement rings. These beauties can be romantic and whimsical or luxe and glamorous, depending on the color you choose. We offer teal round sapphires as standard options for our engagement rings, as well as many other colors and shapes in our unique colored gemstones collection.

Antique Non-Diamond Engagement Rings

Our curated collection of vintage and antique jewelry frequently features engagement rings containing pearls or colorful center gemstones such as rubies, emeralds, garnets, aquamarines, topaz and more. Back in the Victorian era sapphires and other colored gemstones were frequently the focal point of engagement rings, and rings from the Art Nouveau era often feature dreamy center gems such as moonstone, amethyst, citrine, opal and pearl. While rings from the Art Deco and Retro eras often feature diamonds, many of the designs from these eras feature multiple smaller diamonds arranged in artistic patterns, rather than focusing on one large center gem. Choosing an antique engagement ring is an excellent way to find a unique non-diamond style.

Celebrities with Non-Diamond Rings

The typical celebrity engagement ring may still be one with an ice cube-sized diamond, but some stylish celebrities wear less expected rings styles with stunning colored center gemstones Penelope Cruz’s antique ring features a center sapphire, Jessica Simpson’s three-stone engagement ring features a center ruby, and Halle Berry and Zoe Saldana both have gorgeous green emeralds on their ring fingers.

Diamond Bands as Engagement Rings

If you love diamonds but simply don’t want a traditional diamond ring with a prominent center gem, consider a ring that features multiple diamond accents but no large center diamond. Brilliant Earth offers beautiful bands that showcase multiple diamonds, often in unique designs. Though they are categorized as wedding rings, any of these rings would make a beautiful choice as an engagement ring. The Celeste Diamond Ring and Arista Eternity Diamond Ring are especially popular as engagement rings choices. You also might consider a thin diamond eternity band as an engagement ring, which you can turn into a ring stack as you add your wedding band and commemorate future special occasions (anniversaries, babies) with diamond bands.

Non-Diamond Rings with Diamond Accents

Colored gemstones work beautifully in many Brilliant Earth engagement rings settings and can transform them into something completely different, but equally exquisite. If you like the idea of having some diamonds in your engagement ring, but want a colored gemstone or pearl as the focal point, consider accenting the center gem with diamond accents. For example a halo style, which encircles the center gem in glittering diamonds, is a breathtaking way to highlight a sapphire or other center gem. Or you might choose to add side diamonds or pavé diamonds in the band. Because the price of diamonds increases exponentially with their size, choosing a setting featuring many smaller diamond accents is a smart way to get a lot of sparkle at a gentle price.

Affordability of Non-Diamond Engagement Rings

Aside from being a unique choice for an engagement ring, non-diamond engagement rings also offer a great value. Many couples love that they can purchase a non-diamond ring at a lower price point and get a larger gemstone and more look for less! With so many wedding expenses on the way, selecting a non-diamond engagement ring can be an especially appealing choice.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of engagement rings that don’t have diamonds as a center gemstone?  Do you have a favorite center gem other than diamonds?  Let us know your thoughts on Facebook or Twitter or in the comments section! We would love to work with you to create your ideal non-diamond engagement ring.

The True Meaning of November’s Beautiful Birthstones

Tue, 10/27/2020 - 15:30

 

November babies are a lucky bunch, because the November birthstones—citrine and topaz—come in a dazzling array of colors and are relatively affordable.  So go ahead and drop hints about a big piece of birthstone jewelry in the color of your choice!

Shopping for a November birthday?  With a wide range of hues and styles, you’ve got lots of options.  For the low-down on these richly-colored November birthstone gems, read on.

Citrine: Health & Wealth in Rich Colors

Citrine is a quartz gemstone found in golden shades ranging from pale yellow to deep brownish orange. As one of the more affordable gems, citrine makes for a good choice if you want an eye-catching ring or pendant with a larger gemstone. Citrine appears frequently in Edwardian and Art Deco engagement rings.

This gem is also known as “healing quartz,” because legend has it that citrine promotes vitality and energy in whomever wears it. And, according to the Chinese feng shui philosophy, citrine creates wealth and abundance. While we can’t guarantee health and wealth will be gifts with purchase, we do think Fire Citrine Stud Earrings make an excellent birthday present for passionate November-born Scorpios.

The name for “Citrine” comes from the Latin root for “lemon,” and it’s no wonder that this sunny and golden stone has been thought to be a healing crystal that brings happiness, health, energy, and prosperity. For hundreds of years, citrine has also thought to ground and remove negativity — so this is the perfect gemstone for those seeking good vibes only!

Topaz: Symbol of Love in Favorite Hues

Topaz is a hard silicate mineral which gets its color from impurities or defects in its crystal structures, which turn it gorgeous shades of yellow, blue, red, green, brown, violet and pink. Topaz can also be colorless, and colorless topaz is often heated to create blue gems (most blue topaz isn’t natural—the color is created through treatment). The most valuable and expensive shades of topaz are deep orange with pink undertones called Imperial topaz, named after the Russian czars of the 19th century, and yellowish brown hue called sherry topaz.

The topaz birthstone symbolizes love and affection, and is said to bestow strength and intelligence on the person who wears it, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, and a gift of blue topaz is said to be a promise of love and fidelity.

Topaz and Citrine’s Famous Fans

Both of the November birthstones have a royal advocate in the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton (who was born in January, but maybe garnet isn’t her favorite?).  If you glimpsed her engagement photos with Prince William you may have assumed that her glittery pavé drop earrings were diamond, but they were actually made of white topaz (the “Hope Egg” design by Links of London). The Duchess also has a favorite pair of cushion-cut citrine drop earrings by Kiki McDonough, a popular British (but of course) jewelry designer, and has appeared in white topaz and blue topaz earrings by McDonough.  We think topaz and citrine are a perfect fit with the Duchess’s down-to-earth elegance, because they’re nearly as dazzling as more expensive precious gems but with a more sensible price tag.

Citrine has also had bursts of popularity in the Victorian Era, when queen Victoria added citrine elements to her her collection of royal jewelry. In the golden age of early Hollywood, global stars like Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford famously wore glamorous citrine pieces.

8 Unique October Birthstone Gifts

Thu, 10/01/2020 - 15:22

 

If you’re holiday or birthday shopping for someone born in October, a piece of jewelry featuring October’s birthstone makes for a timeless treasure.

October has two birthstones, opal and tourmaline. Opals are popularly known for their milky, rainbow-colored glow and fire. With hues ranging across the whole color spectrum, opals fit well with many different tastes. In the past, opals were believed to symbolize purity and hope. Because of their unique smooth but fiery look, opals are most often polished in the cabochon style — a style where a gem is shaped and polished instead of faceted.

Like opal, tourmaline is also admired for its wide variety of colors. According to ancient legend, the stone traveled along a rainbow collecting all of the rainbow’s colors, which is why tourmaline is found in such a multitude of hues. It has also been believed to strengthen mind, body, and spirit. Although this beautiful gem comes in a variety of tones, pink tourmalines are the most popular option for October birthstone birthday gifts.

Both of these gemstones have inspired jewelry makers for many years, resulting in beautiful vintage pieces that span the decades. These unique pieces are perfect for the October-born friends and family members in your life. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite opal and tourmaline gifts below as inspiration!

Your Questions About Lab Diamonds Answered

Wed, 09/30/2020 - 20:27

Lab diamonds continue to rise in popularity, and this growing interest brings with it an increased amount of questions!

To dispel misunderstandings and debunk some lab diamond myths, we’ve pulled together our customers’ most common questions about lab diamonds.

Question 1: Are lab diamonds real or are lab created diamonds fake? Are lab created diamonds the same as cubic zirconia?

Answer: Lab created diamonds are real diamonds! Lab diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds, and are not diamond simulants like moissanite or cubic zirconia. Diamond simulants look similar to diamonds, but are not true carbon crystals, and most people will be able to tell the difference between diamonds and cubic zirconia or moissanite with the naked eye. The human eye cannot distinguish between a lab diamond and a naturally mined diamond, however, since they are visually and physically identical. Lab grown diamonds can be distinguished from natural diamonds only when specialized equipment is used by professional gemologists to test them.

Question 2: What are lab grown diamonds? How are lab diamonds made?

Answer: Lab created diamonds are grown from the tiny carbon seeds of pre-existing diamonds. Advanced technology – either extreme pressure and heat or a special deposition process known as CVD – mimics the natural method of diamond formation within the earth’s mantle. These man made diamonds consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. Since they are made of the same material as natural diamonds, they offer the same brilliance and hardness of natural diamonds.

Question 3: Are lab diamonds good quality?

Answer: Like naturally mined diamonds, lab diamonds cover the entire spectrum of diamond quality. You can find lab created diamonds of every cut, color, clarity, and carat weight, including flawless white diamonds with no inclusions. Since they are chemically the same as natural diamonds, they do not have lower durability and will not get cloudy over time.

Question 4: How much are lab diamonds? Are lab diamonds cheaper than natural diamonds?

Answer: Lab created diamonds offer excellent value and are slightly more affordable than natural diamonds of comparable size and quality. Because of this, lab diamonds can be a great option for engagement ring shoppers looking to get a larger center diamond within their budget. Additionally, fancy colored lab diamonds sell at comparatively reasonable prices compared to their natural colored diamond counterparts, making it more affordable to opt for something like a pink, blue, or yellow diamond.

Question 5: Are lab diamonds GIA certified? Can you appraise lab grown diamonds?

Answer: Lab created diamonds are certified by a number of the world’s leading gem grading labs including GIA, IGI, HRD, and GCAL. Lab created diamonds available for purchase should always come with a gem certification identifying them as laboratory grown. Lab grown diamonds can also easily be appraised and insured, just like naturally mined diamonds.

Question 6: How are lab diamonds different? Why would I choose a lab grown diamond?

Answer: There are many factors that make lab diamonds an attractive choice for diamond shoppers. As previously mentioned, lab diamonds are usually more affordable than comparable natural diamonds. For couples looking to optimize on the size of the center diamond for their engagement ring, this can mean that a lab diamond is the best choice for them. Others are drawn to lab grown diamonds because they are a responsible choice given that no new mining is required. If a mined diamond is the right choice for you, however, our natural diamonds are Beyond Conflict Free and sourced from specific mines that have demonstrated their commitment to following internationally recognized labor, trade, & environmental standards.

7 Rings Inspired by Lily Collins’ Engagement Ring

Tue, 09/29/2020 - 00:10

Lily Collins’ Engagement Ring Via Instagram @lilyjcollins

The perfect ring for an English rose.

Congratulations to actor Lily Collins and writer-director Charlie McDowell on their engagement! Lily and Charlie announced their engagement on Instagram last week after a proposal that took place on a mountain hike in New Mexico. The naturally beautiful setting was an ideal backdrop for Lily’s completely unique engagement ring.

Lily’s ring hosts a one-of-a-kind cushion shaped rose cut diamond bezel set in a textured gold ring featuring tapered shoulders that mimic a classic split shank ring setting. Rose cut diamonds and gemstones are a somewhat antique style with old world charm. Gemstones cut in this style have distinctive faceting that appeals to many, but they are also cut in a way that prioritizes clarity over sparkle or brilliance – leading to a slightly glassy or crystalline look.

Bezel settings like Lily’s are an increasingly popular choice because it is the most secure way to set a diamond or gemstone. Unlike traditional rings where the center gem is held in by prongs, bezel settings wrap precious metal completely around the center gem to hold it securely in place.

If you love the look of Lily’s unique ring as much as we do, explore similar styles below!

Imogen Diamond Engagement Ring

This stellar ring features a center gem bezel-set and slightly lofted within an intricate milgrained halo for a brilliant sparkle. The distinctive and beautifully detailed gallery lends subtle but eye-catching appeal.

Margot Engagement Ring

This beautiful, contemporary ring features a bezel-set center gem with milgrain accents for a unique look. The elevated bezel allows for maximum light play and accommodates a variety of wedding band styles to tuck underneath.

Luna Engagement Ring

This beautiful, modern ring features a bezel-set center gem with a sleek band for a contemporary look.

Reverie Engagement Ring

At once feminine and contemporary, this ring divides into graceful ribbons of precious metal that intertwine and embrace the center gemstone, securing it with claw prongs.

Lena Diamond Engagement Ring

Two glittering accent diamonds are nestled between strands of metal in this sophisticated and sparkling split shank look.

Cava Engagement Ring

At once classic and delicate, this ring divides into whimsical ribbons from pinched shoulders that intertwine to embrace the center gemstone in a beautifully beaded gallery.

Cuvee Diamond Engagement Ring This stunning ring features detailed beadwork supporting effervescent round diamonds that flow up to the center gem. Sculpted beading continues along the gallery wire to accentuate this whimsical look. Final Thoughts Congratulations again to Lily and Charlie! Which of these lookalike styles is your favorite?
