Frequently Asked Questions
What does a pink ring mean?
Pink rings have been long intertwined with love and romance. And while the radiant ruby can symbolise sensuality and passion, gemstones in lighter shades like morganite and pink tourmaline can evoke a playful sense of romance. A pink tourmaline ring is not only thought to promote love but also friendship, the perfect gem for an empathetic soul—believed to inspire compassion and to foster a better sense of connection. The morganite gemstone is also deeply rooted in compassion and even thought to inspire joy and reverence in its wearer, as well as unconditional love. During the Elizabethan Era, pink was thought to represent happiness and delight, and nowadays is often associated with traits like nurturing and tenderness. Because of its soft tone, the colour pink has long been synonymous with femininity, though its gender-neutral roots can be traced as far back as the 18th Century. Wear a halo pink ring as a statement piece with a stunning ballerina ring, surrounding your pink gemstone in a vintage-inspired design of baguette and round diamonds. Pink rings have become a popular alternative to diamonds when it comes to wedding and engagement rings. A white gold ring with a pink stone radiates warmth and elegance, while a rose gold ring with a pink stone is a perfect match, especially with a morganite gemstone.
What finger do you wear a pink stone ring on?
The finger you choose to wear your pink ring on depends on the occasion, purpose or your personal preference.
In Western culture, many traditionally wear their pink ring on their left hand if it’s a wedding or engagement ring. This dates back to Ancient Rome, where it was believed the vein in the fourth finger of your left hand was connected directly to the heart. This led to the Romans to name this vein ‘vena amoris’ or ‘vein of love,’ and by wearing a ring on this finger, you symbolise a deep and loving connection between two people.
In some countries, it is more common for someone to wear a ring on the right hand, whether it is an engagement ring or not. Others might choose to wear their pink gemstone ring on their middle finger as a statement piece, providing a beautiful sense of balance, or on their index finger to create a focal point that’s stylishly off-centre.
Where you wear your pink ring all comes down to personal preference. Style your ring with different precious metals and gemstones to complement or contrast, like pairing your pink stone gold ring with a small sapphire or ruby gemstone ring.
Can an engagement ring be pink?
Yes, an engagement ring can be pink—whether you love the look of rose gold, or you have fallen in love with the romantic elegance of pink gemstones. Like other coloured gemstones, pink wedding and engagement rings have gained in popularity in recent years, offering a subtle hint of colour and a unique alternative to traditional diamonds.
As well-known symbols of love, romance and happiness, pink gemstones can be a beautiful way to seal a long and lasting bond with your partner and give you a chance to creatively express yourself, making a bold declaration about your personal style.
Pink engagement rings can be found in a wide variety of designs. Among the most popular include classics with a modern twist like solitaire and halo rings, as well as vintage-inspired designs like a prismatic emerald cut or a pink gemstone adorned in a halo of eye-catching diamonds. Even non-traditional shapes like the elegant pear are captivating, evoking old-world elegance.
Beautifully versatile, pink gemstones look good with a range of different precious metals. Rose gold rings, sometimes referred to as a pink gold ring, can offer stunning warmth, bringing out the rich, vivid tone of darker shades, while the soft glow of rose gold can create a highly stylish pink wedding ring, especially when it’s matched with the peachy glow of a morganite.
