The month of May is finally here, and with it comes a lovely cold breeze of winter in all of its wallowing pride. This is not considered the most romantic season for all, but it could certainly be extremely romantic for the perfect couple. If you have the ideal proposal in mind and the ring to match, why not pop the question in the middle of winter with a winter inspired engagement ring? This blog will give you many winter inspired engagement ring ideas.
Winter is usually associated with colder colours, such as blues and greys, however, if you prefer to go the warmer route that is also encouraged. Warm reds and oranges gives the illusion of heat during the cold. Because of this we are going to look at the different coloured stones, best suited for a winter inspired engagement ring, as well as which metals work best with winter.
Rubies & Rose Gold
