It’s not just the strong, red colour of this gem that gives off romantic connotations. As the gemstone for love, passion, trust, devotion and desire, garnet has all the ingredients for a happy relationship and marriage.

Red or almandine garnets are well known for their spiritual connection to love and relationships. As well as perfecting relationships with your spouse and all those around you, it is also linked to enhancing self-love to add joy and prosperity to your life in more ways than one.


From one striking-looking gemstone to another, aquamarine is a beautiful and increasingly popular gem for engagement and wedding jewellery.

In addition to doubling as your ‘something blue’, the gemstone is synonymous with courage and communication, with wearers thought to find it easier to express their love and devotion for their partner to strengthen the relationship for the long term.

Lapis lazuli

Lapis lazuli may sport a darker blue hue than aquamarine stones, but it has an equally romantic meaning as reveals:

It brings energies of wisdom, love, and emotional healing to the person wearing it or keeping it close to their bodies.
