The best gemstone rings of 2013 all share two things in common: each one has a brilliant glittering stone and the perfect setting to match. Let’s look at the top five gemstone rings of the year.
Vintage styles, especially those inspired by the 1920s, are big this year, and gemstone rings are no exception to this trend. For instance, the Art Deco Diamond and Amethyst Ring in 14K White Gold captures the glamour of the “Great Gatsby” era by placing a 7mm cushion-cut amethyst in a meticulously craved setting. Four channel-set diamond accent this regal purple gem on either side, creating a look that’s fit for a queen—or for any lady who’s a fan of sophisticated style.
The Pink Topaz Emerald-Cut Gemstone Ring in Sterling Silver showcases another of the top trends of 2013—bright, can’t-miss-it color—putting it on display with a liberal dose of glamour. An eye-catching 4.50 carat pink topaz is the source of this ring’s brilliant pop of personality; this 10mm-high emerald-cut gem is surrounded by a frame of glittering diamonds that add a touch a of dazzling contrast, and set on a band that’s studded with even more sparkling stones. The .925 sterling silver from which this ring is crafted makes it an affordable way to wear this season’s bright colors, and as we all know, affordability is always in fashion.
Showing your faith is also always in fashion and the Cross and Heart Tanzanite and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold is a graceful way to do just that. This feminine cross ring is studded in the center with a quarter-carat oval-shaped tanzanite, a stone with a purplish-blue hue that’s unmatched by any other gem. Six accent diamonds stud the arms of this 14k white gold cross, and if you look closely, you’ll see that two hearts are formed within the horizontal beam. This creative use of a unique gemstone is an ideal way to celebrate a faith that’s anything but mundane.
Aquamarine is a top color this year and, not surprisingly, it shows up in two of the best gemstone rings of 2013. The Princess Cut Aquamarine and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold proudly displays a two-carat princess-cut aquamarine, allowing it to preside above a band studded with eight channel-set diamonds. Milgrain edges offset these gems, while expertly-carved designs adorn the gleaming 14K white gold band. This is a ring that possesses both a modern edge and timeless class.
The 1/3 Carat Diamond and Aquamarine Ring in 14K White Gold is another stunning example of the beauty of this glittering light blue gemstone. A 2.40-carat cushion-cut aquamarine is the star of this ring, and it’s accompanied by a full third carat of diamonds that frame the center stone and stud the slender band that holds it. This ring’s perfect combination of refreshing glimmer and colorless dazzle will take any outfit up a few notches.
It’s not surprising that these five rings are among Apples of Gold’s top-selling gemstone jewelry! Their gorgeous gemstones and perfect settings set them apart.
