Black Onyx Engagement Rings
Onyx has been used to create jewelry in almost
civilization and country since the dawn of recorded history. It was used extensively by the ancient Romans
and Greek civilizations and was worn by royalty and the common man alike.
Black onyx engagement rings are becoming more
popular as people seek unique rings that are more of a fit for their personalities and tastes in jewelry.
Jewelers have reported a noticeable increase in the number of couples who are seeking these rings and with
this increased demand, they have responded with a larger selection of them, providing buyers with many
options from which to choose.
Onyx is well suited for engagement rings because the stone can
be shaped to the users preference. Like the diamonds used in traditional engagement rings, onyx can be cut
into round, oval, square, pear and heart shaped stones of various sizes. The dark color of
onyx contrasts with and highlights the beauty and elegance of silver, gold, white gold and
other metals used for the ring and settings. The rings being produced by jewelers today are unmatched in
class and style and it’s obvious why any couple would opt for one to mark their special commitment to one
another. Additionally, over the centuries onyx has symbolized strength and fidelity, qualities that every
couple about to wed would like to associate with their relationship!
If you are thinking of buying one of these rings, there are
some things you should know or decide on prior to actually visiting jewelry stores or searching the internet.

onyx ring when she is expecting a diamond. Many couples discuss preferences in engagement rings prior to the man
