As the fall months approach us, days grow shorter, temperatures drop, and trees everywhere shift from lively hues of green to warm shades of red, orange, and yellow. Inspired by our surroundings, fall is the perfect time to explore colored engagement rings.
Fall’s influence is undeniable. The crisp air, scenery, and harvest shows its influence across all facets of our lives. As we observe these changes, it’s only natural we draw inspiration from our surroundings and lean into the fall season. When it comes to engagements, there is no season more romantic and scenic than fall. Picture candid engagement photos with a stunning display of warm leaves. As earthy tones take center stage, consider a colored engagement ring.
While brilliant and clear white diamonds have long reigned as the primary choice for engagement rings, colored engagement rings have become increasingly favored due to the originality and significance they hold. Gemstones have long been known to possess symbolism, significance, and metaphysical properties, which have been harnessed by ancient societies since before Christ. When choosing a colored engagement ring, consider the significance of the stone and how its meaning can symbolize this treasured occasion.
There is no denying that engagement rings, on their own, possess a great deal of significance. As the ultimate symbol of love and commitment, engagement rings serve as a daily reminder and visual cue of this symbolism. Engagement rings, therefore, present a unique opportunity to utilize gemstones for their meaningful properties as a way to set intentions for the relationship. Eternal love, success, abundance, and health are all excellent intentions to set by carefully choosing gemstones that share these powers.
Add an additional layer of meaning to your proposal by considering the gemstone associated with the month you met your partner or even the month of your engagement. Colored engagement rings have the unique ability to add personal meaning to your proposal that is exclusively known by those whose love it represents.
At Tamsen Z, our passion lies in sourcing the most rare and unique gemstones. Each gemstone we source is one-of-one, meaning no one piece of jewelry can be replicated. There’s power in originality and we believe in one-of-a-kind engagement rings. In this journal entry, we’ll explore some of our most exquisite colored engagement rings for fall proposals.
Cognac Diamond Engagement Ring
Colored diamond engagement rings have risen in popularity in recent years due to their unique colors, brilliance, and incredible durability. Enjoy the originality of a colored gemstone with the brilliance of a diamond. Cognac refers to a shade of brown diamond that appears as the color of its namesake. Both cognac and champagne are popular hues within the category of brown diamonds, with champagne appearing a pale yellow-brown color. The name cognac is given to brown diamonds that appear a deep warm brown color.
Cognac diamonds are naturally occurring and are commonly referred to as fancy-colored diamonds. Their unique coloring is typically the result of either nitrogen impurities within the stone or defects in the stone's lattice structure, both of which occur naturally during the stone’s formation. When defects occur within the diamond’s lattice structure, it changes the way light is refracted within the stone, leading to a changed appearance and color.
This Cognac Colored Diamond Engagement Ring effortlessly marries tradition with contemporary style. Plan your autumnal proposal and consider how colored diamond rings will complement the vibrant colors of the season.
Blue Sapphire and Diamond Ring
It’s inconceivable to discuss colored engagement rings without discussing the blue sapphire. Treasured and beloved by many, blue sapphires are a classic and enduring choice for those seeking a colored engagement ring that is certain to remain timeless. Blue sapphires reflect royalty, refinement, and class, while maintaining a uniquely vintage feel.
Blue sapphires can appear in different shades of blue, depending on the angle with which they are viewed, a feature known as dichroism. This feature allows the blue sapphire to reflect its color brilliantly, displaying a variety of blue hues.
For those seeking a colored engagement ring for a fall proposal, blue sapphires radiate a deep blue hue that's neutral and easily paired with any color. It’s also ideal for everyday wear, boasting an impressive ranking of 9 on the Mohs scale, making it durable enough to endure a lifetime of love.

Maple yellow diamonds are uniquely inspired by the warmth and radiance of the autumn season. As maple trees change colors and the leaves become a warm golden yellow, they echo the hues of this namesake stone, the maple yellow diamond.
Colored diamond rings, like our maple yellow diamond, offer a uniqueness that cannot be duplicated. Yellow as a result of impurities that are present during formation, each maple yellow diamond varies in both color and intensity, similar to the distinctiveness seen in fall’s leaves. Rare and incredibly valuable, it is estimated that only 1 carat of colored diamond is mined for every 10,000 carats of colorless diamond.
