Marilyn Monroe famously sang “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” but hey, that was 1953. The 21st-century bride thinks colored stones make pretty nice pals, too. Gone are the days when these rainbow beauties were cast aside in favor of diamonds. Style-setters such as Kate Middleton and Penélope Cruz have spoken, flashing their blue sapphire engagement rings in declaration that diamonds aren’t always forever.
Here are 10 of our stunning sapphire rings, each one a perfect choice for saying, “I do!” And if blue isn’t your BFF, no need to worry. Sapphires have just the right hue for you.
Are you a fan of all the latest engagement ring styles? Well here they are rolled into one! Our beautiful oval-shaped blue sapphire ring features both white and yellow gold, a modified split-shank band with scroll effect, a halo setting of 10 diamonds and, of course, color as the focal point. The trends come together here in the most feminine floral form, as if a bluebell sparkling in the morning dew.
Here’s an extraordinary take on the classic three-stone ring. A 2.20-carat oval-shaped blue sapphire with nearly internally flawless clarity represents your bright and shining “present,” while two oval-shaped diamond side stones signify your “past” and “future.” The halo settings composed of 40 micropavé-set diamonds have a ribbon-like effect that binds your unique love story together.
A crown-like setting and a resemblance to Kate Middleton’s engagement ring give this ring a regal twist. At its center is a 1.35-carat blue sapphire with sublime saturation surrounded by 12 prong-set diamonds. The rose gold offers a warm contrast to the sapphire’s cool hue, while the baguette-cut diamond detailing makes the split-shank band even more lavish.
Love the look of white metal with diamonds but favor yellow gold? You can have both with this particular ring style, which features a diamond surround set in white gold atop a yellow gold band for striking contrast. The sapphire itself is outstanding, weighing nearly two carats with a vividly saturated enhanced hue and clarity rated “perfection.”
Eight weeks went into the production of this magnificent ring, reminiscent of jewelry from the Edwardian era. Characteristic of the period, the ring features an elongated outline centered with a round blue sapphire and surrounded by a dazzling array of calibré-cut blue sapphires and brilliant-cut diamonds. A platinum setting allows for the lace-like look of the basket, the hand-engraved scroll motif on the shank and the outline of delicate balls known as millegraining.
What better way to say you’re the sunshine of his life? Look at this glorious 7.83-carat yellow sapphire in motion and you’ll be mesmerized by its intensely saturated natural hue and the sparkle of its superb mixed brilliant cut. Yellow gold was a smart choice for the setting as it blends seamlessly with the center stone, while the light from the step-cut diamond side stones and white gold band casts a special aura.
For the romantic at heart, our pink sapphire ring takes on the floral theme, spotlighting a pink sapphire that looks as if it’s just been plucked from a rose bush and placed in a platinum basket. Surrounding it are 14 diamond “petals” that resemble lace, with additional dainty diamond detailing on the band for even more feminine charm.
Was your love written in the stars? Here’s an earthly reminder: a pinkish-orange sapphire ring with nearly internally flawless clarity that looks like a star forming from within a galaxy of 103 brilliant-cut diamonds. The sapphire’s enhanced hue is highlighted by a rose gold setting, which features an interesting “twist” on the split-shank style for a more modern approach.
Is just a hint of color more your style? Our pretty peach sapphire ring with very light color intensity is perfect for you. It also features nearly internally flawless clarity, which is paramount in a light-colored stone since imperfections are more noticeable. Fashioned into the very popular princess cut, the sapphire is framed by 28 brilliant-cut diamonds, which add to its softness and neutral appeal.
Utterly elegant. This is an engagement ring for the lady who loves the classy color purple paired with a setting of sophistication. The sapphire itself has a beautiful blend of enhanced red and blue hues, along with our highest clarity rating of “perfection.” At 2.42 carats, it’s nestled between two trillion-cut diamond side stones as if floating on the wings of an angel.
