Since Prince William slipped his mother’s most iconic blue sapphire and diamond engagement ring on the finger of Kate Middleton in 2011, the popularity of colored gemstones has grown immensely and re-emerged as a top choice for the modern bride. Ben Garelick Jewelers offers vibrant blue sapphire engagement rings that burn bright. As the Duchess of Cambridge has found, blue sapphire engagement rings are the perfect symbol of everlasting love and devotion.
The Unique, Rare and Affordable Blue Sapphire
When you select a blue sapphire engagement ring from Ben Garelick, you’re getting a one-of-a-kind ring, as unique and special as the relationship you have with your fiancé. Every sapphire varies in shade so no two blue sapphires are alike. Sapphires have a long history as engagement rings dating back to the 14th century. Sapphires were favored because they symbolized faithfulness, sincerity, wisdom, virtue, good fortune, and holiness. The highly durable blue sapphire is more affordable than the traditional diamond and gaining in value every day. Sapphire (part of the corundum family) is a 9 on Moh’s scale of hardness and so is incredibly scratch-resistant and strong. An engagement ring with a blue sapphire is not only beautiful to admire, but will certainly stand up to a lifetime of everyday wear and tear. And, sapphires are mined in small family- or community-operated mines, which makes it easier to track who benefits from the sales of gemstones, and a more ethical choice when purchasing a gemstone.
Best Designers Create Stunning Blue Sapphire Engagement Rings
Reasonably priced sapphire gemstones are readily available in every shape and cut in stunning arrangements by some of our most famous Ben Garelick designers. Cut to maximize their brilliance and luster, well proportioned sapphires in special shapes are much more attainable than their diamond counterparts. Many of our customers select a blue sapphire as their center stone in a classic white diamond or plain solitaire engagement ring. Kirk Kara is the king of the blue sapphire engagement rings with his popular Dahlia engagement ring. This ring features beautiful rich deep blue marquise cut sapphires set in a hand engraved finish. White diamonds are within the engagement band as the leaf diamond detail on the sides. His Charlotte collection features baguette cut blue sapphires. Barkev's is the newest designer line at Ben Garelick to artistically include blue sapphires as both side and center stones.
