Show your devotion with a Fabergé engagement ring

Let beautiful coloured gemstones speak straight to the heart with the new Fabergé rings from the Devotion collection.

Fabergé 7.69ct red spinel and diamond ring

There seems to be no consensus on when the engagement season is officially in full swing, and while some jewellers say December marks the start of proposals, others say that spring is the time when love is in the air. Differing opinions aside, there is no doubt that beautiful coloured gemstones are always welcome, be they in engagement rings or in jewels to celebrate an anniversary.

However, no one can deny that Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year, and if you are on the hunt for an engagement ring, where better to head than Fabergé. This legendary jeweller is known for its exceptional use of coloured gemstones, and now the ever-growing collection of Fabergé rings in the Devotion collection offers an enticing range of ways to say “I love you”.

The Jewellery Editor team first saw these gorgeous pieces of Fabergé jewellery at the Couture Show Las Vegas in May 2015. We couldn’t contain our delight at the sight of a velvet tray full of luscious coloured gemstones, each one more tempting than the other. We did what all girls do and tried on every single one, then compared, shared and breathed a collective sigh when they went back into the display case, our gaze wistfully following them.

The 11.44ct Zambian emerald in this Fabergé Devotion ring with white diamonds and set in platinum appears to be lit up from within (POA).

The Devotion collection offers some impressive single stone styles that would make standout engagement rings or perfect right-hand rings. Fabergé derives its responsibly sourced emeralds and rubies through its collaboration with Gemfields. Outstanding stones include the glossy blue 19.43ct cabochon-cut sapphire, which drew me into an infinite sea of blue. The vivacious 11.44ct Zambian emerald seems to be lit from within, while others may be drawn to the deeper colour of the Gemfields 13.74ct Zambian emerald. And the rich red of the 7.69ct spinel has an aura of grandeur associated with this regal colour.

Aurora diamond and ruby ring
This Fabergé Devotion Aurora ruby ring is framed by clusters of diamonds and smaller rubies to give a bigger look on the finger (POA).   

Three Devotion Aurora rings feature either a central sapphire, emerald or ruby, framed by clusters of diamonds and smaller coloured stones for a big look on the finger. Again, these would make perfect engagement rings or just a romantic way to reaffirm your love.

Beyond the glorious choice of vibrant hues, the name Fabergé is steeped in history. Gustav Fabergé, a Huguenot who trained as a goldsmith in 1842, opened his first shop in St Petersburg. It was Gustav’s son, Peter Carl Fabergé, who was commissioned as a goldsmith to the Imperial Crown under Tsar Alexander III, and created the famous Easter eggs and magnificent jewels for the Romanovs for which the house became famous. Using colour just as an artist would his paint palette, Fabergé gained a strong following of sophisticated and wealthy clientele who were fascinated by his unusual combinations of colours and materials.

At the fin de siècle, as the world of art, dance and music was being revolutionised, Fabergé was doing something similar with jewellery. This passion for expressing emotion shines out in the Devotion rings, which are a happy marriage of tradition and the very best in coloured gemstones.
