Your engagement is one of the most important days in your life and you want to make it astoundingly memorable. You might be wondering whether picking a sapphire ring for your engagement will live up to the expectations of the day. Let’s reach a conclusion after considering five important factors.

Sapphires are Timeless

Sapphire engagement rings are not just popular today, they were popular two centuries ago as well. In his early days, Napoleon was a soldier and wasn’t affluent, yet he chose to spend his life-savings on a blue sapphire ring for his heartthrob Josephine. The inverted pear-shaped sapphire was set with an upright pear cut diamond in a halo of small diamonds which later became extremely popular in the 18th Century. That ring style is known as ‘you and me’.

In our present times, who is unknown to the famous 12-ct Ceylone sapphire ring of Princess Diana? That splendid blue sapphire ring was presented by Prince Charles to Lady Diana and later by their son Prince William to Kate Middleton.

Likewise, your sapphire ring will also seal your moment of joy and happiness in timeless fashion.

The famous American TV host and actress, Jenny Mc Carthy was presented with a yellow sapphire ring by her beau Donnie Wahlberg on their engagement. The ring has a gigantic 10-ct yellow sapphire surrounded by numerous small diamonds to increase the sparkle of the stone.

Sapphires are Versatile

Perhaps you want your loved one to wear that gorgeous engagement ring at all times. So, you might be thinking whether your sapphire ring can withstand the test of time? The answer is a definite yes. Sapphires are very strong gemstones next only to diamonds in terms of hardness measured on Mohs scale. They are extremely resilient to the normal forces of nature and regular wear. You can confidently pick your sapphire because it will not disappoint you.

A sapphire ring can be picked before even deciding upon the attire or the venue for your big day. They are so versatile they will go with any kind of sartorial preference.

More for Less

Sapphires offer more value to their buyers on two counts. First, they are not just more visually appealing because of their vibrant colors but more affordable compared to diamonds. And second, you can get a bigger stone with the same financial resources.

You are unique and you want to seize the moment with a unique engagement ring. Size is one factor that simply can’t be ignored especially if it is also affordable. Sapphires give you that option.
