Navy might be the darkest hue of blue, but it’s trending this spring and summer for its ability to complement the seasons’ lighter shades. In addition to the solid swatches of navy that have been popping up in everything from color-blocked dresses to handbags, navy is being paired with white in an array of patterns, ranging from nautical stripes to delicate florals. This color combination is eye-catching and classy, not only in clothing, but also in jewelry, and sapphire and diamond rings are stunning examples.
Rings that pair the sapphire and the diamond have a sense of timeless sophistication, whether their style is vintage, contemporary or anywhere in between. These combinations of two classic precious gemstones have a contrasting look that never fails to draw the eye and that will always be in good taste.
This contrast makes sapphire engagement rings with diamond accents an excellent way to celebrate a love that never goes out of style, and the Vintage Style Sapphire and Diamond Engagement Ring is a gorgeous example. This irresistibly sophisticated piece displays a 5mm round sapphire and surrounds it with 64 accents diamonds arranged in a lavish Victorian-inspired design. Elegant beaded edges offset these diamonds, creating a look that perfectly captures the love that sweeps your off your feet. This romantic ring is an unforgettable way to pop the question and a stunning symbol of your adoration.
Regardless of whether you’re planning a proposal, sapphire and diamond rings provide a big dose of style. If a classic style is more your taste, try a simple piece such as a three-stone ring or the Five Stone Sapphire and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold to work the navy and white trend into your look. This ring alternates five oval-shaped sapphires, each 4mm wide (a full carat of sapphires in all!), with four small accent diamonds for a look that calls to mind timeless nautical stripes, but with a lot more sparkle. This classy 14K white gold ring could serve as a stunning anniversary ring as well as a fashion piece.
If you’d like a sapphire and diamond ring with a big dose of fun, don’t miss the lighthearted Sapphire and Diamond Heart Ring! This pieces forms the shape of a heart from six small sapphires, and gives it a contrasting border of glittering diamonds. This sweet, sparkling symbol of love is held by a highly-polished 14K white gold band for a look that’s cool without being too serious. This ring is an excellent way to declare your love—or just your love of fun yet sophisticated style. If you like this look, but would prefer a ring with a floral touch, try the Sapphire and Diamond Floral Ring in 14K White Gold, which surrounds a flower-shaped cluster of six round sapphires with a border of diamonds.
Sapphire rings with diamond accents may be an excellent way to work the navy and white trend into your look, but these pieces aren’t just passing fads. These rings timelessly combine deep, rich color with dazzling sparkle.
