Choosing the perfect center stone for your engagement ring can be a daunting task, but sapphires are an excellent choice. As the hardest colored gemstone, sapphires are extremely tough and come in a wide range of hues, tones, and saturations. Even though diamonds are harder, sapphires are way less likely to break and chip. And while blue sapphires are the most popular, fancy colored sapphires are also gaining in popularity. When sourcing sapphires, I start by selecting for colors that I love. As someone who has a fancy colored sapphire in my own engagement ring, I can attest to their beauty and durability. Sapphires not only look stunning on their own, but also look beautiful when accented with diamonds or other sapphires. They are also incredibly easy to care for and maintain. Choose sapphires as a timeless and meaningful symbol of your love and commitment, perfect for everyday wear!!
