Engagement Ring Trends for 2009

Looking to pop the question in the New Year?  Picking the perfect natural sapphire engagement ring can require a lot of research, trips to showrooms, and hours surfing the internet.   To help you get started, we’ve compiled a quick list of the main sapphire engagement ring trends for ’09.

Color!

Big in ’08, the trend for bold, beautiful color is still going strong.  No longer confined to the traditional diamond engagement ring, soon-to-be brides are picking colorful stones that reflect their personalities and lifestyles. Blue Sapphires are our most popular color and represent a well established royal tradition in sapphire engagement rings.  Princess Diana was given a natural blue sapphire and diamond ring, and their popularity with the general market has significantly increased since.

But blue is not the only natural sapphire color, even if it is the most well known.  Natural untreated sapphires come in every color and tone imaginable.  Yellow sapphire is making a strong comeback and has perhaps the most varied hues – colors can range from very light canary to deep, saturated gold.  Shades of pink are also very popular as is the extremely rare and beautiful padparadscha color.

Three Stone Sapphire Engagement Rings

Three stone sapphire rings were initially given as anniversary gifts but they’ve become very popular as engagement rings.  The three stones signify a couple’s past, present, and future together.  The Natural Sapphire Company specializes in these styles and offers a wide selection of designs.

Natural Sapphire Eternity bands

Rather than wear a plain band, brides are opting for eternity bands – bands with diamonds or sapphires set completely around the band to give a lot of sparkle.  The design signifies everlasting love and appears in both engagement rings and wedding bands.  We offer a comprehensive database of wedding band designs set with natural sapphires and diamonds.  For those inclined to create their special ring, we are more than happy to make a custom piece.

Natural Untreated Vintage Sapphire Rings

Don’t have an heirloom engagement ring passed down from your grandmother?  Never fear, our designers have created the perfect vintage engagement ring settings.  Antique designs with elaborate engravings, filigree work, and pave halos have made a big comeback and their popularity is a testament to the delicacy and beauty of these rings.  As the saying goes, everything old is new again!
