OK, so you’ve bitten the bullet: he or she is the one for you and you want to spend the rest of your life with them. You’re going to ask them to marry you! Congratulations and good luck! You’re probably reading this blog because you have the love of your life’s ring size and can’t for the life of you choose the main stone. Don’t worry – we have some suggestions based on ancient tradition that says the stone you choose for the ring signifies what you want from your marriage.

Ruby – passionate love

You and your partner may be the sort that friends look away from as you clinch, telling you to ‘get a room!’ When you are alone you can’t keep your hands off one another with a constant bubble of desire and passion for one another. Discussions may turn into shouting matches followed by clinches as you seek to cool the energies between you. Nothing is ever quiet for long? In that case you should choose a Ruby.

According to ancient tradition, “Ruby has been long used as a stone to increase passion and to bring and increase romantic love. It is also said to bring integrity, devotion, and happiness to romance as well as other parts of life.”

Emerald – happy and successful

A little more stead and quiet at home perhaps, but dependable and deeply loving? The sort of partner you really believe the truth in ’til death us do part’? Your best friend in the world with whom you feel empty without, who fits in perfectly with everything you are and in many ways is part of you?

An Emerald may well be the stone of choice in this case. According to Buddhist tradition the emerald is “the “Stone of Successful Love,” Emerald opens and nurtures the heart and the Heart Chakra. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love. Emerald promotes friendship, balance between partners, and is particularly known for providing domestic bliss, contentment and loyalty.”

Sapphire – loyalty and honesty

Loyalty and honesty are core to marriage and partnership. Openness is one of the key things to communication, and communication is important in everything you say and do with one another. You may be the sort of couple who finish one another’s sentences in conversation, and when faced with problems you fight fiercely together to win against your foes. Loyalty runs deep and is one of the most loved aspects you will ever find in another person.

If loyalty and honesty are the things that set you alight, or is one of the important parts of the relationship you have together then a blue Sapphire may well be the answer. Famously sported by Princess Catherine in Britain, this is also one of the most fashionable stones on the market today.

According to ancient tradition, “Blue sapphire offers you reliability, gentleness, kindness, integrity, honesty, loyalty, endurance and commitment.”
