Today, and in upcoming blogs throughout this blog series, we’ll be jumping into other engagement ring favorites, as well as their symbolic meaning:


Garnets are most often reds and greens, although they can come in many more colors. These gems represent energy as well as healing. They also embody increased commitment, faith, hope, and honesty.


There are numerous opal types, including fire opals and common opals, and there are numerous colorations of opals that can be found. Opals speak to inspiration, self-esteem, and self-worth.


Morganite, or angel stone, is pink in coloration. As a heart stone, morganite embodies love, and old love, as well as compassion, empathy, and patience.


Topaz can be orange or clear (white topaz), and it represents strength and confidence. It also holds the power to rid the wearer of bad dreams.


Moissanite is a very hard stone since it’s formed in a manner similar to diamonds. Moissanite may lend power to the mind, body, and soul. Moissanite is clear or clouded, and it can have great brilliance when shaped into a hexagon as it most often is.


Sapphires can come in several colors, including black, green, orange, pink, violet, white, and yellow. Each sapphire brings the wearer wisdom, and each color has its own specific wisdom.
