Unique and Personalized Colored Engagement Rings

When it comes to engagement rings you can break away from tradition and add a bit of color to your ring. How about an engagement ring that features your birthstone gem in a setting with diamonds? I think this is such a unique and fun way to personalize your engagement ring just for you. What's your birthday gemstone? Mine, believe it or not is January's birthstone of garnet and my birthday happens to actually be tomorrow the 26th :) Garnet is not only a favorite of mine because it's my birthstone, but it's a beautiful, deep red that looks beautiful when set amongst diamonds. By creating an engagement ring with your birthstone surrounded by diamonds, you are creating a personal and one of a kind ring. Below is a sampling of some rings featuring garnet along with the birthstone for September and November {couldn't help it - those are the months my 2 daughters were born in}.
