Wedding Rings – The Colours Of The Rainbow
There are many rare gemstones that you can have for your wedding ring, but affording them is a different matter. Celebrities can splash the cash and buy the very best, but even this rare blue diamond might be out of some of their price ranges. Experts predicted it would fetch an estimated £9million. So, why would you desire a blue diamond? A blue diamond is naturally very rare and any rare diamond such as this is often regarded as priceless. You can also get yellow diamonds and pink diamonds, which are equally as rare and generate much interest. Heiress Paris Hilton is famed for many things, but one of them is undoubtedly the yellow gem engagement ring she had, costing a reported $5million. Rare gems really are the hottest things on the market. However, with rare gemstones comes more responsibility to look after them, so many people – even if they had the money – would shun the purchase of a rare diamond for their wedding rings. Imagine losing it!
