Other than diamonds, Sapphires are our most popular gemstones sold to be set in an engagement ring. After that it would probably be Morganite. There will be another article about that.
Sapphire is the most precious and valuable blue gemstone. Let’s face it, if it is good enough for royalty, it is good enough for the rest of us! Prince William proposed to his Duchess with his late mother’s beautiful Sapphire engagement ring.
Sapphires come in a variety of shapes and cuts, so we can show you different ones to see exactly the shade and cut you would like. Sapphires look beautiful when accented with diamonds like what we made here for one of our client’s. This is called a halo style because the small diamonds surround the center sapphire like an angel halo.
Sapphires look stunning set alone in what is called a solitaire – meaning one single stone is set in a precious metal shank. You can have it set in 14k white, yellow and or rose and 18k gold is also available as well as platinum and palladium.
You can also play around with the size of sapphires. It does not always have to be one large center stone. They can be small micro set as an accent or in a row. I particularly love this style that is set in rose gold. The color combination of the rose and blue was just spectacular. Keep that in mind too. The color of the metal will make the sapphire have a different look all together. White allows just the blue in the sapphire to shine through, whereas yellow and rose compliment the blue for a more eclectic look.
