Great Reasons To Consider Sapphire Engagement Rings
Sapphire engagement rings are truly beautiful. Whether the ring has a sapphire center stone or sapphire accents, adding this gemstone is a great way to give your ring flair and style. Sapphires are extremely popular and have been used in engagement rings for years. There are four gemstones considered to be the Big Four - emeralds, rubies, diamonds, and sapphires. Gemstones are extremely durable and provide an edge to an engagement ring.
There are no two sapphires alike so if you choose a sapphire engagement ring, yours will be unique. These gemstones vary in shade and are available in many colors in addition to the traditional blue.
Another benefit of choosing a sapphire engagement ring is cost. These gemstones are much more affordable than diamonds which means you can get a much larger stone for the same money. In reality, the only reason diamonds are so expensive is the almost complete monopoly that De Beers has on the market. They have manipulated diamond prices for years keeping them artificially high.
Engagement Ring with Blue Sapphires (incl. Yellow & Pink)
Choosing a sapphire engagement ring is also a better choice ethically than choosing a diamond. Most sapphires are mined in community or small-family owned mines. This makes it easier to know who is benefiting from the sapphire sales.
Sapphires are also very durable. They are strong and scratch-resistant. Both natural and lab-created sapphires are beautiful and can last a lifetime.
As sapphires increase in popularity, their price is also on the rise. Sales of sapphires are breaking sales records at jewelry auctions and as more people choose untreated sapphires, the sales of these gemstones are moving upward.
Some people believe sapphires have healing qualities and can bestow the wearer with peace of mind, tranquility, happiness, and enlightenment. Sapphires have been used by alternative medicine practitioners for years as a means of treating wounds, stopping bleeding, and curing eye problems. The gemstones were ground up and used as a powder treatment.
Wearing Other Types: Oval, Halo & Rose Gold Diamond Rings
Others believe wearing a sapphire can attract wisdom and compassion. It is also believed to help strengthen a person's heart, purify the blood, and correct vision problems. Sapphires are also worn as pendants and used to treat seizures, delusions, and fevers.
Worn in combination with other gemstones, sapphires are also believed to help with fighting certain cancers, nerve diseases, paralysis and kidney issues.
If you are looking for something really special, consider sapphire engagement rings. These beautiful gemstones are each one-of-a-kind and will be a truly spectacular engagement ring.
