Gorgeous Sapphire Engagement Rings

Updated on January 29, 2013

Gorgeous Sapphire Engagement Rings

Sapphire engagement rings are an excellent choice for a beautiful, special ring for the woman you love. Sapphires are a more popular choice than ever for engagement rings, and the selection and variety ensure you will find something you like.

One reason sapphire engagement rings are so popular right now is because of the recent royal engagement and wedding. Prince William gifted his mother's sapphire and diamond engagement ring to Kate Middleton. It is just as lovely today as I remember it from that royal wedding so long ago. I've loved sapphire engagement rings since then, and I regret that there wasn't a big selection when I was choosing a ring.

I have selected some lovely rings for you to look at in a variety of styles, metals, and price points. No matter what your budget, or the style your lady prefers, you are sure to find something that would make her heart melt.

About Sapphires

Sapphire Engagement Rings

Sapphires are a type of transparent corundum. Corundum is a very hard, crystalline mineral. Other types of transparent corundum are rubies and padparadscha.

When people think of sapphires, they usually think of a deep, blue gemstone. Sapphires can be many different colors, including: clear, green, black, and yellow. These colored sapphires are often known as "fancy sapphires". Sapphires are often heat treated to enhance their color.

Since a photo of a gemstone can look different depending on your monitor and other factors, always rely on the sellers official description of the color of the gemstone.

About Engagement Ring Metals

Sapphire Engagement Rings

Engagement rings are available in a variety of metals. Each has different advantages, besides the obvious one of color. You should be able to look at your fiancee's current jewelry to see what color metal she prefers, and then you can go from there.

Platinum is a dense, white metal. It makes a very durable ring that lasts a long time. It is expensive compared to other metals. Many people with metal allergies can wear platinum without problems.

Gold, which is quite soft naturally, can be combines with different metals to change its color and its strength. The most common colors for gold metal jewelry is yellow and white. White seems to be the most popular right now. Another option is rose gold. This is gold with copper added in to color it.

Gold for jewelry is usually 18k, 14K, or 10K. The higher the karat, the more pure the gold is, but also it is less durable. 10K gold is the least expensive option.

Silver is also often seen for engagement rings and wedding sets. It is a popular choice for women with gold allergy. Silver is a very affordable choice, unfortunately silver rings are often set with simulated gemstones.

Alternative metals are more popular than ever, sometimes due to allergies, and sometimes due to work or military restrictions, personal taste, or environmental concerns.

Some alternative metals commonly used are palladium, tungsten, and titanium. These metals tend to be less expensive, but the rings can be more difficult to work on and resize by a jeweler.
