About Sapphire Engagement Rings
So, you’re interested in sapphire engagement ring designs, but don’t quite know where to start? Fear not, as we spark your imagination with a few unusual engagement rings, creative ideas and quirky styles.
Why Are Sapphires a Good Alternative to Diamonds?
Diamonds are the hardest precious stones on Earth. Measuring 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness, diamonds are both dazzling and durable. Coloured gemstones exist in the masses, but none are as suitable for an engagement ring as sapphires. Following diamonds, sapphires reach 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness, meaning they are durable enough to stand the tests of daily wear.
The Regal Choice
Iconic royal engagement rings have had major influence on contemporary tastes, and thanks to Princess Diana’s engagement ring, now belonging to Kate Middleton, blue sapphires denote a sense of regality. The deep blue colour is also thought to symbolise truth, faithfulness and sincerity; the ultimate romantic choice.
Ruby Engagement Rings
As a variety of corundum, rubies have the same chemical structure as sapphires. Effectively red sapphires, rubies gained their own identity due to their unique, lustful allure and historic significance. The fiery, deep red of a ruby is symbolic of love and passion. What more could you want in an engagement ring?
Sapphire and Diamond Rings
Choosing a sapphire doesn’t mean you can’t also enjoy the fiery beauty of diamonds, too. Frame a deep blue, oval sapphire with a diamond halo to achieve the look of Kate Middleton’s engagement ring. A trilogy engagement ring can look striking with a sapphire flanked by two diamonds. For an alternative engagement ring, why not try a solo sapphire with a diamond set band.
Unique Engagement Rings
Whilst classic designs steal the hearts of many, some prefer more unusual engagement rings. Sapphires offer the chance to introduce flashes of colour, for something a bit different. Our bespoke service offers you the chance to let your imagination run free.
Vintage Engagement Rings
Sapphires are a fantastic choice for Victorian or Art Deco inspired engagement rings. Antique engagement rings can be incredibly characterful, but aged settings may be fragile and unsuitable for daily wear, so why not recreate a vintage design that’ll be sure to last a lifetime?
