With more betrothed folks forgoing the traditional diamond engagement rings, we think it's about time an underrated stone got its day in the spotlight: the moonstone. A bohemian favourite adored by a lot of jewellery designers, the beautiful iridescent stone is gaining popularity in bridal jewellery across the board.
While the vibe of a moonstone is certainly different from that of a classic diamond solitaire, for instance, the jewel is no less special, and perhaps even more so. If you're at all like us, it might remind you of the mood rings we were so charmed by in our childhoods—only in a much more chic, grown-up embodiment.
