Blue diamond engagement rings are fashionable and trendy and have remained a popular choice for fancy diamonds. There are two types of diamonds used in blue diamond engagement rings. Blue diamonds are either natural or genuine, or synthetic. Natural blue diamonds are extremely rare and therefore are not only valuable but are often very expensive. Those whose budgets allow for genuine blue diamonds can select from a variety of hues ranging from light blue and aqua tints to those that are deeper with a color comparable to that of a sapphire. If you are adamant about choosing blue diamond engagement rings but can’t afford natural, genuine stones, you can select from man made, or synthetic gemstones that will have the look and style of their genuine counterparts, without the high price tag.
Natural diamonds develop their blue tint due to the addition of minerals such as boron and hydrogen. The colors of blue diamonds are broad but the most valuable are those that are a deep, midnight or cerulean blue. When selecting blue diamonds make certain to determine whether the diamond is natural or man made. Also important is determining whether or not the diamond has undergone any processes or treatments to enhance the color. The value of the diamond will be directly impacted by whether or not the stone has been treated with any colors, dyes or bleaches.
In addition to the color of the diamond you can select blue diamond engagement rings in either yellow or white precious metals. Most prefer to find blue diamonds crafted in white gold rather than yellow, however, this is a choice based upon personal preferences.
Those who are seeking a unique way to pledge their commitment to love may find that blue diamond engagement rings are a beautiful way to make this promise.
