Rose Gold Engagement Rings: A Blush of Beauty Often, when we are looking for engagement rings, it is the big rock in the centre that seems to be the most important. But the setting of the ring makes just as big of an impact, and choosing the right metal for that setting is as important as choosing the right stone. There are several that are fairly common. Platinum is very popular, and so is yellow gold and white gold. And a century ago there was another metal that was wildly in demand, one that is making a comeback in a huge way, and for a good reason. Rose gold has been around for a very long time, and while it […]

One that is perfect for giving a subtle splash of colour is the aquamarine gemstone. Aquamarine engagement rings are becoming more and more popular because of their understated beauty. They […]
