This is quite a special post, one to send directly to your partner with a little *hint hint* in the subject title!
Did you know that diamonds come in a wide variety of colours? But, did you realize that coloured diamonds also make for sensational engagement rings? Most of the time, the stones are valued for the lack of colour, with colourless diamonds receiving the highest grades. But, coloured diamonds are simply special. They have a range of associations attached to them, with some people believing that red diamonds mean strength and true love, while yellow stones are a symbol of calm, caring, and selflessness.
Coloured diamonds are becoming a popular choice for diamond engagement rings and you can get a beautiful custom engagement ring in Toronto and Diamonds for Less or from a local jeweller to truly show off your love and dedication. Even celebrities have been spotted flaunting colourful rings on the red carpet and in fashion magazines. So, is a coloured diamond the right choice for your engagement ring? You should consider a coloured diamond if:
Your fiancé-to-be is trendy and unique.

She loves romance and glamour.

Budgeting for a Coloured Diamond
If you have already decided that a coloured diamond is the way to go for an engagement ring, you don’t need to a book a ticket to Paris or Switzerland to shop at the major auction houses – there are affordable options to shop for right here.
Be careful in purchasing coloured diamonds as there are those that have been artificially enhanced just to give off a certain colour. You may think that you’ve purchased a natural fancy coloured diamonds but instead you end up with one that is just made in a lab. Deal only with a reliable jeweller to avoid such issue.
Whichever you choose, you are sure to thrill your fiancé with a coloured diamond engagement ring that she will be proud to wear forever.
