Sapphire and Diamond Rings »
Sapphire and diamond rings have increased in popularity in recent years, and for good reason. Their perfect paring of luminous blue and colorless sparkle creates a sophisticated look that’s stood the test of time.
Sapphire has been highly valued since the earliest biblical times. When Job describes the treasure of wisdom, he says that it can’t be bought with sapphires, indicating that these gems were of great worth.
Some studies say that blue is the favorite color of approximately half of the population, and sapphire exhibits the richest of blues. Its medium to dark, slightly inky hue is loved by many for its ability to flatter a variety of skin tones and complement a wide range of personal styles. Read more.
Sapphire and diamond rings are especially fitting for women born in September: as the birthstone for this first fall month, sapphire calls to mind a dark blue sky on a crisp fall evening. The saturated color of sapphire creates a dramatic contrast when placed next to a diamond. Almost as bold as black and white, but with a more vibrant feel, sapphire and diamond rings are truly striking.
Despite their greatly differing appearances, the ruby and the sapphire are two types of the same mineral: corundum. Like the ruby, sapphire is exceeded in hardness only by a diamond. It’s extremely durable and easy to care for, making it an ideal way to add a touch of worry-free sophistication.
As demonstrated on the finger of the Duchess of Cambridge, sapphire and diamond rings make excellent engagement rings. Styles such are fit for royalty, but ¬¬¬¬¬equally are accessible for everyday wear.
Large sapphires accented by smaller diamonds are found on many popular styles, however not all sapphire and diamond rings let this blue gem steal the show. Channel rings featuring both diamonds and sapphires give each stone equal billing, and several variations of three-stone rings allow you to choose how much you’d like each gem to stand out.
