The evenings are finally starting to get longer again! As daylight increases, we often have more opportunities to gaze into the evening sky, and stand in awe as the stars appear. Sapphire rings capture the color of the heavens as day fades into night, adding sophistication to your finger any time of day.
Sapphire has been linked to the sky for thousands of years. The ancient Persians believe that earth was balanced atop of a humungous sapphire, and that the shade of this gigantic gemstone was reflected by the heavens. To this day, this gemstone has never failed to catch eyes and imaginations.
The deep, rich indigo glimmer of sapphire is always sophisticated, transcending trends and looking chic year after year and decade after decade. As one of the four classic gemstones, it never goes out of style, and it brings an upscale look to a wide range of styles. For instance, the Three Stone Sapphire Engraved Ring in 14K White Gold is an incredibly classy choice. Three sapphires preside over this chic piece; the largest of these gems, a 0.45-carat oval-shaped sapphire, is bookended by two similarly-shaped 0.15 sapphires. These glimmering indigo gems are accented by 10 round diamonds, totaling just over a quarter carat, that stud the band on either side of the three center stones. A repeating motif is carved into three sides of the 14K white gold band, accenting the stones it displays.
The timeless beauty of sapphire makes it an especially fitting pick for styles that are inspired by times past, such as the Victorian Era and the Art Deco Period. The Sapphire and Diamond Heart Ring in 14K White Gold is an excellent example of the beauty of vintage sapphire styles. A 5mm round sapphire is this ring’s main attraction, set in a hexagon of 14K white gold. This timeless stone is accented by two smaller round diamonds, each of which is framed by a delicate carved heart. Like all sapphire and diamond rings, this piece calls to mind the sparkle of stars in the night sky, as colorless dazzle gorgeously contrasts with deep blue glimmer.
Sapphire’s timeless beauty allows it to easily represent lasting love, and rings that feature it are unique and meaningful ways to pop the question. Apples of Gold carries a number of sapphire engagement rings, as well as sapphire bridal sets such as the Antique-Style Sapphire Wedding Ring Set. Like the aforementioned sapphire and diamond heart ring, this piece is inspired by simpler times, and it displays a meticulously-crafted design that has proven its ability to endure through countless trends. This engagement ring in this set is adorned with a 4.5mm round sapphire, surrounded by a feminine motif of swirls and cutouts. A slender wedding band displays a similar design that curves gracefully alongside its partner.
Pieces of blue sapphire jewelry, such as these striking rings, are lovely ways to celebrate the longer evenings of early spring. However, the deep, rich indigo glimmer of sapphire makes these pieces fitting picks in any season.
