10 Engagement rings in Pantone's 2024 colour of the year
With Valentine's Day around the corner, you might be thinking about engagements rings! Here are ten beautiful pieces in Pantone's colour of the year, Peach Fuzz
Soothing, soft and sumptuous, Pantone’s 2024 colour of the year is Peach Fuzz and it couldn’t be more perfect for bridal designers thanks to the already popular gemstone, morganite. Morganite is a peachy-pink beryl gemstone and has a 7.5–8 on the Mohs hardness scale, making it an ideal selection for an engagement ring. (Diamonds have a 10 on the hardness scale, meaning that they can withstand the knocks of everyday wear.)
"Pantone’s 2024 colour of the year is Peach Fuzz and it couldn’t be more perfect for bridal designers"
Amy Elliott, a respected consultant in the fine jewellery space and contributor to JCK Magazine couldn’t agree more: “The most logical Peach Fuzz engagement ring choice is morganite as it’s widely available at an affordable price. I think now that Peach Fuzz has arrived as a predicted 'it colour', more jewellers and designers will be working morganite engagement rings into their collections. The same might also be said of rose gold, which in fact reads not much pink but more of an apricot."
Indeed, morganite often looks best paired with rose gold as the metal brings out the subtle hues of the gemstone, but this collection of ten engagement rings with a Peach Fuzz centre stone encompasses a variety of designs and colours of metal so that brides-to-be can get a sense of all that’s truly possible with this sultry stone without breaking the bank. Let’s take a look!
Evocative of the Edwardian era, the Cadenza ring by Brilliant Earth showcases a round cut morganite encompassed by a luxurious diamond pave halo. To top it off, the designers of this ring have added an additional touch of nostalgia to the shank by nestling pairs of diamond pave in marquis-shaped frames and illuminating the ring with delicate migraine on the edges. Available in any colour metal, we think this ring is simply fit for royalty.
Price: About £1,800
Nothing says luxe more than an emerald cut gemstone, and this ring from Angara is giving us vibes of elevated elegance in spades. Shown with a 2.25 carat morganite centre stone set in white gold with delicate pave on the shank, no other details are needed for this ring to make a serious statement.
Price: As shown about £2,300
Though the Myrtle ring from Bario Neal can come in any colour metal, we prefer the classic pink-on-pink pairing of the round morganite centre stone set in rose gold. With a split shank and six delicate prongs used to keep the centre stone securely in place, this beautiful yet simple engagement ring opens the door wide to a number of wedding bands that will pair nicely with it.
Price: Under £1,000
What’s not to love about a bezel set engagement ring? A bezel setting uses metal to encase the centre stone from all sides instead of prongs and we love how unique this emerald cut morganite engagement ring from James Allen looks. Though available in any colour metal, we do prefer it in rose gold as the colour of the metal helps to pull out the natural hues of the centre stone.
Price: About £500
Two-tone metal engagement rings are making a comeback and we’re loving the look of this incredibly luxe and elevated morganite and diamond engagement ring from Gin & Grace. With an oval morganite centre flanked by truly eye-popping design details on the shank (tapered diamond baguettes surrounded by delicate diamond pave halos), what’s not to love about this ring that really does let you have it all?
Price: As shown about £1,300
Few gemstones look as good as morganites do in the cushion cut shape and this cushion cut and diamond halo engagement ring from Angara does not disappoint. Combining all the usual details one expects to find in a classic engagement ring (diamond halo, diamond pave and eagle claw prongs) this engagement ring features something standout that we truly love: an elongated cushion cut centre stone, a shape of stone coveted amongst cushion cut lovers.
Price: As shown about £1,300
For the bride-to-be that wants to buck convention, we’d like to suggest this morganite engagement ring with not only a bezel setting but a super wide band. At a whopping 5.5MM wide (most engagement rings are around 2.00MM) and set in yellow gold, this engagement ring is perfect for the bride who refuses to conform and marches to the beat of her own drum.
Price: About £3,200
With an asscher cut centre stone evocative of a perfect sunset, this simple yet sweet engagement ring from Primrose Hill is flanked by two tapered diamond baguettes in a bezel setting on either side of the centre stone. Set in white gold, this petite beauty proves that good things really do come in small packages.
Price: About £600
The thing we love the most about this round-shaped morganite ring from KOKAV is not only its price point, but the fact that it doesn’t stray far from the classic design elements found in most engagement rings, which makes this design timeless. With a simple diamond halo around the centre stone and diamond pave on the shank (inarguably the most popular design element of the last few decades), this ring is sure to set the stage for a happily ever after.
Price: As shown about £1,600
When you can’t choose just one shape of gemstone or even colour, the Toi et Moi ring is the perfect solution. We love this simple design from Brilliant earth that marries a perfectly peachy emerald cut morganite with a pear-shaped pink tourmaline that gives the ring a heady pop of vibrant colour. Though described as a cocktail ring on Brilliant Earth’s website, we’d be willing to bet that any bride looking for something unique would say yes to this romantic union of gemstones set in classic yellow gold.
