Choosing an engagement ring is a momentous decision, symbolizing love, commitment, and the promise of a future together. While diamonds have long been the traditional choice for engagement rings, modern couples are increasingly exploring alternative gemstones to express their unique style and personality. At Soha Diamond Co., we are proud to offer a countless number of gemstones, from vibrant colored sapphires to the timeless diamond. When you design your engagement ring with us, there’s a wealth of options to consider when selecting the perfect gemstone, and we’re here to help you find the perfect one. 

Diamonds: Timeless Elegance 

Diamonds have held a special place in the world of engagement rings for centuries, prized for their brilliance, durability, and symbolic significance. Opting for a diamond engagement ring ensures a timeless and classic look that never goes out of style. We are proud to offer lab-grown diamonds, as well as ethically sourced mined diamonds from Canada. Whether you prefer a round brilliant cut, or something more contemporary, like an elongated cushion cut, we offer endless possibilities of diamond shapes and sizes to create a ring that truly reflects your love. 

Sapphires: Symbol of Royalty 

Sapphires, with their rich blue hues, have long been associated with royalty and romance. However, sapphires are not limited to blue; they come in a stunning array of colors, including pink, yellow, and peach. Renowned for their durability and brilliance, sapphires make an excellent choice for an engagement ring. A sapphire engagement ring is a perfect blend of tradition and individuality, offering a unique and striking alternative to traditional diamond rings. 

Emeralds: Symbols of Renewal and Growth 

Emeralds, with their lush green hue, symbolize renewal, growth, and everlasting love. Known for their captivating beauty and timeless appeal, emeralds are a popular choice for engagement rings, particularly for those who appreciate the allure of vintage-inspired designs. While emeralds may not be as durable as diamonds, they can still make a stunning statement in an engagement ring when set in a protective setting and cared for properly. 

Rubies: Symbol of Passion and Love 

Rubies, with their fiery red color, symbolize passion, love, and vitality. As one of the rarest and most precious gemstones, rubies make a bold statement in an engagement ring. Their exceptional hardness and brilliance make them well-suited for everyday wear, ensuring that your engagement ring remains as vibrant and beautiful as your love. 

Moissanite: Sparkling Alternative 

Moissanite, a lab-created gemstone with a brilliance and fire that rivals that of diamonds, has been gaining popularity as an affordable alternative to traditional gemstones. With its exceptional durability, moissanite offers couples the opportunity to create a dazzling engagement ring. Like lab-grown diamonds, moissanite offers an ethical and sustainable alternative to mined diamonds. 

Ultimately, the best type of gemstone for your engagement ring is one that resonates with you and your partner’s style, values, and preferences. Whether you opt for the timeless elegance of a diamond, the vibrant hues of a colored gemstone, or the affordability of moissanite, the most important thing is that your engagement ring reflects you and your partner’s love story. At Soha Diamond Co., designing your engagement ring together presents an experience like no other, because your love story is unique to you and your partner. With so many beautiful options to choose from, we are here to help you find the perfect gemstone for your engagement ring.
