The holiday season has long been a romantic time of year for wedding proposals. Christmas is such a festive time and a wedding engagement makes it that much more memorable.
So, at Copeland Jewelers we want to help make your season “marry” and bright with our recommendations for the best engagement rings this Christmas season.
Unique Colored Stone Engagement Rings
When it comes to colored gemstones, count on Copeland Jewelers to give you the guidance and knowledge you need to make the perfect choice for your engagement ring.
We’d love to share our knowledge with you so you can make wise choices for your “forever ring”. As an example, emeralds rank high on the hardness scale but they’re prone to brittleness and fractures. We can show you gems that are better for everyday wear.
Here are our three great choices for Colored Gemstone Engagement Rings.
Iconic Blue Sapphire Engagement Ring
Make her your Queen with this sensational oval blue sapphire and diamond ring in 18K white gold. Certainly, the most distinctive yet classic engagement ring of modern history.
Very similar in style to the late Princess Diana’s renowned engagement ring. Now famously worn by her daughter-in-law Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge.
Our sapphire and diamond engagement ring is exemplary of a sophisticated classic style. Most importantly, you’ll love this large oval cut and extra fine mesmerizingly blue sapphire, weighing almost 4 carats (3.86 ct.).
In addition, it’s masterfully crafted in 18K white gold with meticulous beadwork and diamonds set around the sapphire, the outside edge, and halfway down the band. The under gallery’s architectural design beautifully resembles a crown set with small diamonds. To sum it up, this is one of the absolute best engagement rings for Christmas.
Alluring Aquamarine Engagement Ring
Stunning oval Aquamarine weighing over 6 1/2 carats (6.58) is the highlight of this engagement ring. Creating the most alluring color palette of aquamarine blue, white diamonds, and white gold.
This 14K white gold setting is the definition of romance in jewelry. Engraving along with tiny bead and cut-out work lends the ring that romantic vintage feel that never goes out of style. Plus, the ring boasts over 1/3 carat of diamonds artfully set around the aquamarine.
Absolutely beautiful design lines and attention to detail.
Ceylon Sapphire Engagement Ring
This stunning Ceylon Sapphire ring is a big YES!
From Philip Zahm who is always one of our favorites designers because of the breathtaking gems he curates. Zahm always respects the millions of years mother nature has put into these perfect gems by making them the star of his pieces. Ceylon sapphires are arguably the best of sapphires. This one is in an exceptional shade of cornflower blue!
The pinnacle of every Philip Zahm creation is always an exceptional colored gem. And, this 2.26ct. Ceylon sapphire is truly an outstanding gemstone in a phenomenal shade of cornflower blue.
A design master, Philip artfully displays this yummy pear shape gem. Notice the slight curve in the setting accentuating the elegant pear shape cut. He uses 18K yellow gold prongs to highlight the sapphire’s marvelous cornflower blue hue. Lastly, adding a touch of brilliance, .22cts. of beautiful high-quality round diamonds are set all along the 18K white gold band.
Vintage Style in New Rings
Does your partner have a love for vintage styles in clothes, graphics, and art? People with a sense of history or storytelling gravitate to vintage styles as well as romantics.

Classic Diamond Engagement Rings
Gorgeous Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Ring
Expertly crafted in 18K white gold, the ever-classic diamond engagement ring style is captured in this design. A gorgeous 2.01-carat cushion cut diamond that’s graded G color and VS2 clarity with certificate.
This ring’s design incorporates almost another carat (.84 ct.) of small diamonds, also of high quality.
Art Deco Inspired Modern Octagonal Engagement Ring
Prince William gave Kate Middleton his mother’s incredible sapphire engagement ring. But, have you seen the engagement ring worn by her sister Pippa?
Well, here you see something very similar to Pippa’s bauble. But without the price tag of almost $300,000. Both our ring and Pippa’s ring are highly influenced by Art Deco styling and exceptionally crafted of luxurious 18K white gold. Plus, both rings incorporate a diamond halo; updating the style for a more current feel.
Another nod to the art deco style, the focal point to Pippa’s ring is an Asscher cut diamond. It’s similar to an emerald cut but with larger, wide-set steps and almost octagonal in shape and must be cut from very clean rough. Hence, the high price tag of Pippa’s ring.
In our ring, we love how the smaller center diamonds are designed and expertly set to look like one large Asscher cut diamond. A brilliant idea (pun intended). So, with a little ingenuity and high quality smaller stones, this design puts together a spectacular effect. As a result, it’s a fraction of the price.
Our ring incorporates a total diamond weight of almost 1 and 1/3 ct. (1.31 ct.) to achieve this look.
