From subtle nudes to the brightest of blues, these rings stand out from the traditional and make a unique statement. Another advantage to these rings are the wide range of stones and price points depending upon your preferences.
The most trending ring color right now is pink. Above, this maroon with a hint of rust is deep and natural with a beautiful gold band to bring out its warm tones. If you favor lighter shades, this double halo peachy-pink morganite ring (below) could be just the ticket! It's the perfect choice for a bride who just wants a hint of color, and would look stunning against almost any skin tone.
Brighter shades of pink are ideal for an ultra-feminine bride who is very Elle Woods about her signature color. Above, this pink sapphire goes blush with a rose gold band. The whole effect is very glowy and sweet. Below, coral pink and hot pink are both bold shades. Consider your skin tone, frequent wardrobe choices, and bridal style before choosing a ring this vibrant to make sure you get the right hue. Warmer skin tones can tend to favor the peachy corals, whereas cool skin tones really pop with true blue-based pinks.
Perhaps you don't love white diamonds, but you aren't really the bright color type either. Well, there are plenty of colored engagement rings that you will love. Above, an oval smoky quartz ring looks great as a nude on medium to deep skin tones.
Okay, but if we're being completely honest, we're adoring black engagement rings right now. Just as versatile as a traditional white diamond ring, but with a thoroughly modern style, these rings are fantastic. You can find them in styles like the halo setting above if you are looking for a classic design.
Or you can embrace a trendsetting statement like with the pave ring above and hexagon option below.
Still not sure if you love these enough to wear them forever? Find a cheap glass version in two shades of your desired color, one as bold as you think you want to go and one several shades lighter. Wear each for a week or two. Do you find yourself loving the pop of color on your hand, or wishing it was a bit more subtle?
We've gathered several more examples of colored engagement rings for you to drool over. With a veritable rainbow of colors available to you and options like sapphires, aquamarines, tourmalines, and peridots to choose from, there is an engagement ring here for every colorful bride.
