Coloured Gemstones for Wedding Rings in Reading Instead of Diamonds

A diamond is forever, or so they say. Since the 1940s, diamonds have become the customary wedding ring gemstones for couples who want to seal their vows with something extra special on their big day. Whilst it is true that nothing quite surpasses a quality diamond’s regal brilliance, there are other alternatives that are just as beautiful. If your bride is not much of a stickler for tradition, profess your eternal love and devotion instead with a non-diamond wedding ring from jewellery shops in Reading.

Here is a look at non-traditional wedding ring gemstones worth considering.


Peridot is a yellowish-green precious stone that was once favoured by ancient civilisations for its exquisite beauty. The Egyptians have been wearing peridot jewellery as early as the 2nd millennium B.C., and the ancient Romans even called it “the emerald of the evening” for its radiant green glow that remains unaltered in any light.
