Sapphire is a beautiful coloured gemstone that is getting more popular as a centre stone option for engagement rings.
Considered as one of the “Big Four” of precious jewels (alongside rubies, diamonds, and emeralds), Sapphire is one of the most beloved and intriguing colours among other jewels.
September’s birthstone, in addition to being used to symbolically represent that month, is also known as the 5th and 45th-anniversary gemstone.
Choose a Colour
Sapphires come in a rainbow of colours, but the blue ones are the rarest, most valuable and most popular (all thanks to Princess Diana and Kate Middleton). It goes without saying that the most important quality of the Sapphire is its richness in colour. Since it is rare, it is one of the most valuable gemstones available. Sapphires that aren’t blue are a great option if you want the unique appeal of a colourful centre stone but don’t want to splurge on a pink or yellow diamond.
Decide on the Cut
Once you were able to determine your preferred Sapphire colour, it is now time to choose the shape. No matter the shape of your stone (as long as it’s symmetrical), the colour should look even with a consistent sparkle. The most popular shape, the Oval, is perfect for those who are opting for a bright centre stone.
Pick Your Setting
Now that you’re all set with the stone and shape, you must consider the setting style. Devote your time in picking a style given the multitude of options. In addition to the budget, consider her lifestyle, personal style, and daily activities which can guide you in terms of selecting a setting. Some options you can select from are:
- Antique Setting – perfect for art lovers and history buffs
- Halo & Pave Setting – romantic and dreamy look
- Solitaire & Side Stone Setting – for a more clean, contemporary look; perfect for the minimalists
- Three Stone Settings – for people who believe that more is more
