One of May’s birthstones, emerald makes a bold and dramatic choice for engagement rings. This elegant stone comes in a wide range of green tones, from the darkest shade to lighter shades. Popular throughout the ages, this stone works well with diamonds. It also works well with every type of metal, from yellow gold all the way to rose gold, white gold, and platinum. Keep reading to see how emeralds can work in engagement rings to find inspiration for your dream ring.
Fall in Love With These Dreamy Emerald Engagement Rings
If you are looking for a bold, classic stone or an engagement ring in your birthstone, these elegant emerald rings are sure to inspire.
Asymmetrical Side Stone
This modern asymmetrical ring features a delicate gold band, with a tiny diamond side stone and an emerald cut centre stone. It would work equally well in a cool-toned metal or with emeralds as the side stone if you are looking for something less bold. The fine band helps to add balance, giving this ring lots of impact without being over the top.
Five Stone Halo
Another way to bring in colour is to use a series of smaller stones rather than a single larger stone. Five small emeralds are flanked by tiny halo diamonds in this ring, on a platinum band. If you are not a fan of overly large or traditional rings, this style is sure to work well.
Intricate Side Profile
We love side detail on rings. In this ring, tiny emeralds have been added subtly with a diamond taking centre stage and small pave stones adding extra detail. This ring would work in any metal, and looks amazing from any angle. If you are looking for something unique and eye-catching, this is sure to be a great design.
Platinum Three Stone
If your tastes run more towards the minimal side, however, this simple platinum three stone ring would be a great choice. This type of ring is symbolic, representing the path in each relationship – past, present, and future. With a small emerald as the centre stone, the result is classic and understated.
Twisted Pave Band
Twisted bands are a timeless choice that will always be sophisticated and pretty. In rose gold, the delicately weaving band leads up to a small emerald centre stone. The combination of rose gold and emerald works surprisingly well, especially with diamonds added in the band. Yellow gold would work equally well.
Halo Pave Pear
Those who favour traditional styles will love this pear cut ring, which has a delicate band encrusted with pave stones. The pear cut stone is flanked by a halo. The result is a feminine, pretty ring that adds colour without being too bold.
Modern Beaded Marquise
If you’re looking for bold, on the other hand, this unusual marquise cut ring certainly adds impact. The combination of emerald and yellow gold further enhances the intricate beaded band that is dotted with tiny diamond pave stones.
Platinum Pear Pave
Another classic style, this pear cut ring in platinum has pave stones on one side. This adds sparkle without losing the simplicity of the ring. It would work equally well in a bolder metal such as yellow gold, or with emeralds added as the pave stones and a diamond added as the centre stone.
