Colored precious gemstones, while readily available dating back many centuries ago, are quickly gaining popularity amongst brides to be across the world. Most notably the blue sapphire engagement ring has seen the strongest resurgence, made popular by the likes of Kate Middleton and the late Princess Diana. The colorful and vibrant allure of sapphires verses the purity and elegance of a diamond ring is something that all engagement ring shoppers should consider. Bear in mind that a sapphire of the same carat size will cost about a fraction of the price of a similar diamond, so for the cost conscious that should be taken into account as well.
When dealing with sapphires (as with a loose diamond) there are several characteristics that will have an effect on its beauty as observed by you, the wearer. The size, tone and saturation of color, clarity, and the cut of the gemstone are just a few factors to keep in mind. Although sapphires of many colors have always been in demand, the recent forerunner has been in the blue colored range. Even within the blue sapphire category there are a huge range of colors to consider so take your time to look at a few different stones before making your decision.
