Pink Sapphire Jewelry: A Twist on a Classic Precious Stone
When you think of a sapphire, chances are that you think of a dark blue stone with a deep, slightly mysterious sparkle. However, this indigo gem isn’t the only type of sapphire. A striking pink variety of this stone is equally alluring, with a personality that can wake up any jewelry collection. Pink sapphire rings and earrings are unexpected and a little daring, with a bright personality all their own.
Like all sapphires, pink sapphires are very hard, ranking just below the diamond in their ability to resist scratching and stand up to wear and tear. Thus, sapphire rings and other pieces of jewelry that feature this pink variety of this stone are quite durable and poised to last for generations: they’re easy to care for and difficult to damage.
Pink topaz and diamonds are a sophisticated combination as the unique hue of pink sapphire plays against colorless, light-reflecting sparkle. The Pink Sapphire and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold is an excellent example of these two stones’ ability to complement one another to form truly beautiful pieces. This timeless style features three oval-shaped pink sapphires, totaling 0.75 carats, placing them side by side and accenting them with a cluster of small diamonds on the right and left.
The 14K White Gold Pink Sapphire and Diamond Ring is another gorgeous example of the complementary nature of pink sapphire and diamonds. This modern classic style alternates these two stones to create a look that calls to mind a perfectly beaded bracelet. Over a carat of oval-shaped pink sapphires are interspersed with four smaller round diamonds, allowing both gems to fill a bit of the spotlight.
Pink sapphire is an excellent choice for modern styles as it gives these looks extra pop and a lot of personality. For instance, the Pink Sapphire and Diamond Wave Ring in 14K White Gold uses pink topaz and diamonds to create a chic contemporary look that’s both playful and sophisticated. A round pink sapphire sparkles as the centerpiece of this ring, hugged by a band that swoops gracefully around it like two ocean waves dancing in unison. Five channel-set diamonds adorn one side of this band, adding glimmer, as well an asymmetrical touch that contributes to this piece’s modern sensibility.
For a touch of feminine sparkle that will never go out of style, you can’t go wrong with pink sapphire studs such as the Pink Sapphire Stud Earrings in 14K White Gold. While this style is simple, these earrings add zing to your look with their brilliantly-colored gems. Choose from 4mm, 5mm or 6mm stones for the just the right pop of pink. In addition to this white gold pair, Apples of Gold also carries 14k yellow gold and platinum variations.
Any of these pink sapphire rings or earrings can add a pop of personality to your look as they convey a feeling of fun along with a sense of sophistication. Try one for a zing of bright sparkle and daring yet feminine charm.
