Pink Engagement Rings will Capture her Femininity

Some women are just the epitome of pink. They love to be girly girls, to be dolled up and pampered and they happily embrace their femininity. A normal diamond engagement ring is beautiful and she will love it just fine, of course, but pink engagement rings genuinely capture her true feminine character. While coloured gems have been popular in engagement rings for quite a while, Jennifer Lopez made pink engagement rings’ popularity explode when she received one from Ben Affleck in 2002. Although they did not last, the love of pink stones in engagement rings has only increased since then.

There are a few different options if you are thinking of pink engagement rings for your bride-to-be. There are two different pink precious gems used in engagement rings: sapphires and diamonds. Both have their own unique pros and cons, but one thing they share in common is that they are both much more expensive than regular diamonds. But for good reason. Pink diamonds and pink sapphires are both incredibly rare, and because of that, they cost a lot more.

In 2009, a pink diamond was actually the most expensive diamond ever sold at auction. Pink diamonds increase in price if they have no colour modifiers. Pink diamonds are only ever modified by orange or purple, so if it is purplish-pink, it will cost less than a diamond graded pink, although the difference in appearance to the naked eye is minimal.

Pink sapphires are also very rare, and so they cost more than regular sapphire engagement rings. However, what many do not know is that a very dark pink sapphire is actually considered a ruby. Light pink is considered a sapphire. As with pink diamonds, the deeper the pink, the more the cost increases. Pink sapphire engagement rings are loved because of their incredible strength and durability. Sapphires are so strong they are often used in scientific equipment.

Whether it is a pink diamond in a solitaire or a pink sapphire paired with diamond shoulder settings, or any other of the countless setting combinations, pink engagement rings are a match made in heaven for the bride-to-be who loves all things pink, soft, feminine, and pretty.
