For example, for the Sapphire Jubilee (the 65th anniversary of her accession to the throne), Queen Elizabeth wore the sapphire jewelry her father had given her at her wedding in 1947.

Princess Diana’s sapphire ring has now become Princess Kate’s engagement ring, a gift from Prince William. The ring first came to light in the spotlight in 1981, with the engagement between Diana and Charles, and controversy arose due to the fact that Diana chose her own engagement ring. In 1997, after the Princess’ death, the jewel reappeared in the spotlight, when Prince Charles encouraged his sons – William and Harry – to choose one of their mother’s things to remember. That’s how the famous ring came into the possession of the youngest son, Harry, while William chose a gold watch.

Extremely durable gemstone

Sapphire (part of the corundum family) is a highly prized stone for its strengths: intense color, hardness 9 on the Mohs scale, strength, and shine. Sapphires are now considered the most valuable gemstone, after diamonds, as such, they are incredibly resistant to scratches and bumps. So most likely this sapphire engagement ring will become one of the jewels bequeathed, from generation to generation.

Very high value

Sapphires are much less expensive than diamonds, but with a very high value in the jewelry market. This trend can certainly be seen in the most important auction houses in the world, where sapphire sales are setting real records. Sales of untreated sapphires are on an upward trend as consumers become more aware of the value of natural sapphires. And, of course, the increasing use of sapphire in engagement rings and fine jewelry will make the gemstone more and more sought after and therefore less valuable over time.

Blue Sapphire Stone

Sapphires are well known as one of the most prized gemstones that can be combined with diamonds. These two precious stones make a perfect combination, because the diamond will give the sapphire engagement ring a special, more sophisticated, and elegant look and the sapphires with their wonderful colors give a colorful and vivid note to this special jewelry.

When the sapphire is the central jewel of the ring, there are many choices for the shape, but the most common shape is oval. Also, the standard size for a round sapphire is 6 mm, the equivalent of a 76-carat diamond. It is recommended that you look for these standard measurements, as this is the most likely way to buy one sapphire engagement ring true.
