  1. Sapphires Engagement Rings Excel by Their Uniqueness

No two sapphires are comparable, even if they're the same hue, due to shade variations, ensuring a unique ring, as unique as the relationship you share with your beloved one. Sapphires are available in a wide range of shades, each symbolic significance. When you buy a sapphire ring, you receive a unique piece. Sapphire gemstones come in various shapes and cuts, and they are reasonably priced. Well-proportioned sapphires in particular shapes have been cut to enhance their brilliance and luster and are significantly more affordable than their diamond counterparts. 


  1.  Sapphires Are Both Affordable and Rarer Than Diamonds

The very reason why Diamonds prices have been kept intact is not because of the uniqueness and rarity of diamonds, but instead because of manipulation of consumer demand and strategies in the market, mainly the marketing strategy stipulating that "Diamonds are forever." Sapphires, on the contrary, are more affordable because the Sapphire industry has never been monopolized. Many people work in the sapphire industry, not reporting to a single entity that sets the price for all stones, making these precious stones more accessible to everyone.

  1. Rich History & Royal Lineage

Sapphires have an ancient legacy in engagement rings and have shown to be durable. In 1796, Napoleon gave his bride, Josephine, a sapphire engagement ring. To date, this engagement ring is still in perfect condition. 

Natural Sapphire, regarded as a symbol of wisdom and good fortune, has been connected with royalty for centuries. The British Crown Jewels, which feature stunning blue sapphires, attest to the country's royal affiliations. The Sapphire engagement ring worn by Princess Diana and Princess Kate ignited a significant sapphire trend among young couples. Sapphire engagement rings are a wonderful way to express one's commitment because they convey a sense of trust, loyalty, and understanding to your love story.

  1. Extreme Durability

Sapphire, a member of the corundum family, has a Mohs hardness of 9, making it highly scratch-resistant, durable, and perfect for everyday wear. But these are just some of the reasons why synthetic sapphire, i.e., Lab-Grown Sapphires, are even used in watches and many other gadgets like Apple camera glass and more.

  1. Birthstone

If your birthday falls in September, you're in for a gift! September may be both wistful (the end of Summer) and exhilarating. The heat has eased, and it's time to break out the new Fall outfits. Finding truly good clothing for colder weather may be a lot easier. You may dress it up with a stunning September birthstone. Sapphire is the most recognized birthstone for those born in September and the gem for the 5th and 45th wedding anniversaries.
