The earliest diamonds were not nearly as brilliant as today's rings. The first mine cut diamonds were not very clear. This improved in the early 20th century with the European cut diamonds. These are often found in rings from the Art Deco period. Diamond cutting continued to improve and evolve into the brilliant cut that is still used today.
The most important quality of an 18K gold wedding ring is its high gold content. If you compare an 18K gold ring with a 14K gold ring, you'll see that the 18K has more radiant beauty simply because it is 75% pure gold vs. .585% in a 14K ring. Higher carat gold also has more cache. Fine jewelry refers to 18K gold, not 14k. Some jewelry brands only produce in 18K as a signet of their brand value and prestige.
The semi-precious gemstones of the Western style rings are much easier to find and give a much wider varietal appeal, making them a lot more diverse to meet more personalized tastes. Remember that semi-precious gemstones are really not different in beauty or in value than the precious gems. Emotional investments in tradition are all that separate them, along with traditional levels of availability. The gemstones that were reserved for royalty diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires were the "precious" stones. These days, we mostly think of diamonds as the precious stones, even though they have also become more easily attained.
