About Our Gemstone Rings
Are you a cool aquamarine, a rich, traditional emerald or a fiery ruby? Choose a ring with a birthstone, or gem that holds special meaning. These rings let you use a little creativity to give that special someone (or yourself!) a piece they to cherish. One of the features of gemstone rings is the personality each one possesses—each shows off its own meaning and style. When buying a ring for someone special, colored gemstone rings capture the style and personality of both the buyer and the recipient depending on the stone and style chosen. Read more.
For most, the idea of jewelry and rings brings to mind the traditional, sparkling, colorless diamond. However, gemstone rings have also held their place as a popular choice over time, though perhaps less noticed than the omnipresent diamond. But the Apples of Gold collection of colored gems is causing buyers to take a second look at the rainbow of rings available to them.
Gemstone rings are not only different and unique, but they also exhibit a vintage and timeless look that never goes out of style. For years this style of ring has gone from being the face of royal engagement rings to personalized gifts for someone special. Apples of Gold has a flourishing selection of beautiful gemstone rings that are perfect for any occasion. Whether it is a sparkly gemstone solitaire or a pairing with diamond accents, these rings exhibit a variety certain to suit any style.
The colored stones featured in these rings also hold Biblical significance. Nearly every stone recognized today as a birthstone makes an appearance in the Biblical text. In Exodus, these stones adorned the breastplates of the priests serving in the ancient temple. In Revelation, they decorate the walls of the New Jerusalem. These stones are more than just a pretty face—they hold an ancient meaning and significance in God’s Holy Word.
More than simply a timeless gift, gemstone rings are a unique option for engagement rings as well. Celebrities, as well as royalty often avoid the norm of the traditional colorless diamond ring to get a little adventurous with their wedding jewelry. Rubies and sapphires lead the trend in colored gemstone engagement rings, while other precious stones such as emerald or smoky topaz would make an outstanding ring as well.
From peridot to amethyst, engagement ring or birthday present, gemstone rings are a perfect and unique way to show your love for that special someone.
