      Iconic Celebrity Sapphire Engagement Rings

      Blue gem engagement rings have been popular amongst royalty and celebrity A-listers for centuries. Notable celebrity engagement rings with sapphires include; Princess Diana’s natural sapphire engagement ring (now worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton; the sizeable gold sapphire engagement ring given to Elizabeth Taylor in 1952 for her marriage to Michael Wilding; and Victoria Beckham’s eye-watering oval cut blue sapphire engagement ring from husband David Bekcham.

      Judging Quality When Selecting Unique Sapphire Engagement Rings

      While sapphires are graded by cut, clarity, colour and carat, sapphire quality is predominantly determined by colour and shape. Sapphires are dichroic stones, meaning their colour changes slightly depending on the angle it is viewed.

      The three primary colour criteria for choosing real sapphire engagement rings are Saturation, Tone and Hue. Saturation refers to the amount of colour, tone refers to the lightness or darkness, and hue refers to the stone’s colour; dark blue sapphires are most desirable.

      Most sapphires will have some minor visible inclusions, which is considered normal. Finding a sapphire without any visible inclusions in diamond and sapphire engagement rings is extremely rare and reflected in the price.

      Selecting The Perfect Sapphire Engagement Ring

      Blue sapphire engagement rings are elegant in any cut, though an oval cut sapphire engagement ring is most effective for showcasing the gemstone’s colour, as it allows maximum light to flood the stone.
