Whilst on the search for the perfect engagement ring, people tend to overlook pink gemstones. White seems to be the more traditional choice, but you aren’t just any bride now are you?Pink gemstones aren’t for everyone, we get it. After all, how many times have you actually seen a bride sporting a pink sapphire or morganite engagement ring?
Yeah, that’s what we thought. We haven’t seen too many either.Yet that doesn’t mean you can’t get one. If you love the idea of ‘pink’ as the ultimate reflection of your love for one another, then go for it. Buy what you will enjoy love wearing for the next 30, 40, or 50 years. Don’t regret buying a boring white diamond just because some wedding industry marketing machine told you to buy one.
Pink Gemstone Meaning
What makes a ring with a pink gemstone all the more special is the meaning of pink. People tend to associate it with femininity. Yes of course, it’s supposed to be a “girly” color, but that’s not the primary reason we think it rocks as your big rock. Pink is the color of universal love, and means “I will never forget you!”It’s actually very romantic! Pink is also used to express contentment, so we are sure that sporting a pink rock will trigger even happier times in your life beyond your big day.
