The allure of a sapphire is nothing new. The ancient Persians believed that the earth rested upon a giant sapphire, and the rich blue hue of this gem has been admired for thousands of years by cultures spanning the globe. However, just because this gem has a long history doesn’t mean that its possibilities have been exhausted—far from it! Here are three diverse sapphire rings that demonstrate the timeless, versatile beauty of this gemstone in styles ranging from vintage to modern.
If vintage looks tend to catch your eye, don’t miss the Three Stone Sapphire Engraved Ring in 14K White Gold! Three oval-shaped sapphires—one 0.45 carat gem and two smaller stones—are the focal point of this sophisticated style. These glittering indigo gems are joined by just over a quarter carat of channel-set round diamonds that add contrast and sparkle as they peer upward from the meticulously-crafted 14K white gold band. Engraved designs on three sides of this band add the perfect past-inspired finishing touch.
If modern designs with a glamorous yet fun personality are more up your alley, try the Sapphire and Diamond Heart Ring. This eye-catching style frames a heart of sapphires with a row of diamonds for a look that’s decidedly contemporary.
If you’d rather a sapphire ring that expresses your faith, consider the Heart and Cross Sapphire Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold. An oval-shaped 5mm-high sapphire is placed in the center of a feminine curving cross of gleaming white gold and accented by six small round diamonds. If you look closely, you’ll see that the horizontal beam of this cross is comprised of two graceful hearts, a reminder of the love that Christ showed.
