A Blue Sapphire ring as an engagement ring

The Duchess of Cambridge’s engagement ring could not leave the future bride and groom indifferent. Since Prince William’s marriage proposal to Katie Middleton with a Birma 18 carat blue sapphire ring and their subsequent wedding in 2010 blue sapphire rings have been among the top of the list choices as an engagement (not necessarily, of course, with such a big sapphire!). A blue sapphire ring is a romantic and touching gesture. If not as an engagement ring, a sapphire ring is suited for women born in September, sapphires being the birth month gemstone. Sapphires are also the tradition for a 16th wedding anniversary. A blue sapphire ring is an ideal gift for this occasion.

Choose your Blue Sapphire ring well

If you set your heart on a blue sapphire ring are well aware of the importance of selecting the right gemstone. This precious gemstone is definitely blue but it is a color that presents different aspects. We distinguish between clear blue, midnight blue, purplish-blue, and even turquoise.  The most sought-after nuance is an intense blue.  The more intense the blue, the more valuable it is and vice versa.  Washed out and weak blues have less value than the more intense blues.  However, it is up to you to find the blue that suits you and your sapphire ring.  Additional information on this precious stone is available to you on our “Buying Blue Sapphires page”.

Pick the perfect shade

When purchasing a blue sapphire ring, the first question you should ask is, "What shade of blue should I get?" When determining the value of sapphire, the color is the most significant factor. A bright vibrant velvety blue to violet-blue in medium to medium-dark tones are the most sought after and cherished hue. Sapphires occur in a wide range of colors, from faint baby blue to royal blue. It all boils down to personal preference; how bright or dark you want your blue sapphire to be is entirely up to you.

A perfect Engagement Ring

In reality, they are popular among celebrities like Mary Kate Olsen, Penelope Cruz, and Elizabeth Hurley, and are traditionally worn in the households of British Royalty. When it comes to engagement rings, colorful stones were actually more popular than diamonds until the 1940s. Blue sapphires aren't as common as they once were, but that's part of their appeal. They provide you the opportunity to have something personal and distinctive, which we believe is crucial for a ring you'll wear for the rest of your life.
