Though diamonds are historically the stone of choice for engagement rings, colored gemstones have been on the rise in recent years and their popularity has no end in sight. Their different hues not only stand out, but they have the potential to hold deeper meaning based on their color and how it relates to you. Maybe it signifies your birthstone or a special anniversary date. Whether set as center stones or used as accents, gemstones are the perfect sentimental pop of color. MiaDonna sells a variety of lab-grown gemstones including sapphires of different color varieties, rubies, emeralds, and alexandrites. Shop gemstones.
