Five Engagement Rings To Buy for Valentine’s Day

By Dorothy Musariri

Thinking about popping the question this Valentine’s Day, or simply looking to delight her with a fabulous new ring? No matter where you are, Elite Traveler has you covered. Colored gemstones are becoming more and more popular – this follows the trend set by celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Princess Eugenie of getting engaged with color, making it a special and luxurious alternative to the traditional white center stone engagement ring. Elite Traveler has put together a selection of beautiful, bold and colourful rings. Here is our guide on where to perfect the perfect cutting-edge engagement ring for the woman who won’t be constrained by convention.

Martin Katz

For a romantic look, Martin Katz offers a stunning fancy-yellow-green emerald-cut diamond. Katz is known for creating incredible jewelry for the sharp and sophisticated woman, and this ring is the perfect example. Set in platinum and 18K rose gold, the 3.42-carat fancy-yellow-green is flanked by two trapezoid diamonds, channel-set carré diamonds and microset with 123 vivid-pink diamonds.


Lydia Courteille

French jeweler Lydia Courteille’s latest collection stars rare Paraíba tourmalines and white diamonds. Thanks to its unique, vivid blue-green hue, the Paraíba tourmaline is a bewitching stone and will be sure to turn heads. This mesmerizing tourmaline and diamond ring is rendered in 18K white gold and features 15.62 grams of Paríba tourmaline and 540 diamonds.

For today’s fashionable wife-to-be, Picchiotti’s aptly named Xpandable collection is a smart choice. The house celebrated its 50th anniversary last year with a 60-piece bridal collection featuring rings that can expand up to two sizes. The standout piece from the collection is undoubtedly the Purple Sapphire Ring Cod. At the center is a 3.72-carat unheated natural purple sapphire, surrounded by 2.37 carats of white diamonds. The end result is a soft and feminine ring for a glamorous everyday look.


Harry Winston

As one of the world’s most iconic jewelers, Harry Winston is known for its incredible diamonds and show-stopping high jewelry. We also love its more delicate collections, such as the Incredibles collection. We love the ruby and diamond ring, which captures the reddish glow of the rising sun with a 4.07-carat ruby, 12 pear-shaped and round diamonds totaling 1.41 carats, which is set in platinum and 18K yellow gold.

This exclusive, limited-edition piece features a 2.53-carat oval-shaped emerald surrounded by white diamonds.
