Often mistaken for rubies by kings and emperors in the past, this alluring gemstone comes in a myriad of shades – from intense red to delicate pink – depending on the level of chromium content in each stone.

Tourmalines are known for its astounding variety of hues – from hot pinks to purplish reds, and dark violetish blue to bright yellows. These colourful gemstones are known to inspire creativity, which makes it the perfect stone if your other half is a creative spirit! Opt for a striking bluish-green gemstone fashioned with unique tourmaline-set petals for a touch of exquisiteness.
These striking royal blue gemstones can only be found in one place on earth: the Merelani hills of Tanzania. It’s no wonder these semi precious stones are said to be rarer than diamonds! Besides its rich blue hues, Tanzanites are also pleochroic – they reflect different colours when viewed in different directions. An engagement ring like this will be a daily reminder of just how special and beautiful your other half is to you from any angle.
