1. They’re related to Rubies

Sapphires and rubies come from the same family. Yes, that’s right. The mineral group is called Corundum. All red corundums are labeled rubies, while non-red varieties are labeled Sapphires.

2. Colour Options

You can make your sapphire engagement ring in an unlimited range of colour options. This can be confusing, so we’ve picked the best of the lot – rose pink, honey yellow, indigo and teal sapphires. These colours go very well with all of our designs, so you can rest assure knowing your ring will look cohesive.

3. Intense and Vivid

Sapphires are intense by their very nature. The colours are vivid, and the value of the stone increases as the saturation of colour increases. But over saturated sapphires can appear dark and without lustre. So we offer our customers the colours we think hit a sweet spot. Reading through our Ultimate Guide to Sapphire Engagement Rings is a great way to choose just the right colour and design.

4. Range of sizes

Due to the intensity of colours, sapphires can be used in a variety of sizes. Tiny sapphires can be used to accent a diamond ring, for example. And larger stones can be used as centre stones. What’s important is that the proportions are just right, and that’s baked into all our jewellery right at the design stage. Each sapphire is chosen specially for your ring.

5. Hard enough for daily use

They’re rated at a hardness level of 9 on the Mohs scale. That means they’re well suite for daily use, and scratch resistant too. Your Sapphire engagement ring will look like new for years to come.
