Diamond Sapphire Rings

I have taken a newfound liking to sapphires. I love their lustrous blue colour and the way genuine sapphires shimmer in the light.

It has also come to my attention that the birthstone for September is sapphire. Go figure!

I really don’t want to get into the chemical composition of sapphire. That’s just too boring for me. Besides, the aim of this website is to celebrate the beauty of vivid colours!

While sapphires are typically blue, they can also be found in other colours such as grey, black and pink.

Sapphires can be found in the eastern states of Australia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, China, Madagascar, East Africa and in some parts of North America, namely Montana. Natural sapphires are typically cut, polished and worn in jewellery such as necklaces and rings.

Diamond sapphire rings are exceptionally beautiful and ideal for engagements and special occasions. Rings that have been set with both sapphires and diamonds have a dramatically elegant look about them.

Culturally, the blue sapphire represents honesty, loyalty, fidelity and purity. Perhaps this is the reason why diamond sapphire rings are popular at engagement parties and pre-wedding ceremonies. Sapphire is also the gem for a 45th wedding anniversary.

Diana, Princess of Wales, Queen of Style and Grace

God rest her soul, but Princess Diana was also a huge fan of diamond and sapphire combinations. During one of her visits to Japan, she wore a diamond and sapphire choker on her forehead. Her engagement ring also consisted of 14 solitaire diamonds surrounding a 12-carat oval blue Sri Lankan sapphire set in 18-carat white gold. This beautiful, elegant ring has now been passed on to Kate Middleton whom Prince William proposed to using his mother’s engagement ring. Rest in peace beautiful Diana.

    Warm Wishes ~ Margaret

    1. Hi Margaret, thank you very much for your feedback. It is much appreciated. I think your daughter will be amazed once she opens up her birthday gift.

  2. Hi,

    Great article, I actually didn’t know that Sapphires came in any other color apart from blue!

    I too love the deep blue of them, and they look stunning against a few diamonds.

    I agree, Princess Diana was a great style queen and I love the fact that her engagement ring is now on the hand of Kate.


    1. Thank you very much Judy. I really appreciate the positive feedback. Yes, I agree; Princess Diana was an icon of style and grace. It’s just so sad that she went too soon. The world lost an angel. Rest in peace beautiful Diana.

  3. An interesting concept for a website and as a psychotherapist, I am always fascinated with ways of making people feel better about themselves.

    I also adore precious stones, in particular diamonds, and one of my favourite pieces is my diamond solitaire necklace, which I always wear. I also like to wear a pair of diamond and sapphire earrings which my mother gave to me some years ago.

    I think wearing jewellery, particularly pieces which mean something special can be very powerful. I teach my clients to ‘anchor’ positive feelings or experiences to something they wear, as this practise can be a very simple way of alleviating anxious thoughts and feelings.

    I really enjoyed visiting your site and wish you continued success.

    1. Hi Sandra,

      Thank you for your message. A psychotherapist? Wow! Great job! I have always respected people in the psychology field such as psychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, etc.

      I’m glad that you see the relation between clothing and accessories, and mental health. A lot of people don’t see the relation between wearing or looking at bright colours and improving mental health. I’m glad we see eye to eye on this topic.

      I wish you great success too. Thanks again.

  4. I have always been attracted to blue sapphires and i have 2 rings.
    I find they go with most of my outfits, and they are just so beautiful. I much prefer these to diamonds.
    Great article!

    1. Thank you so much for your positive feedback Jenny.

      Yes, while I love diamonds, I must admit that I prefer sapphires and rubies. There’s something exceptionally captivating about these corundum rocks. However, mixing diamonds with blue sapphires on a piece of jewellery looks incredible.

      I’m happy that you have 2 sapphire rings that you can enjoy and be dazzled by.

      Thanks again Jen!

  5. I’m a guy, and I love sapphires! I don’t know what it is about these beautiful blue gems. But whenever I see them, I can’t keep my eyes off them.

    The first time I heard of the word – Sapphire – was when I watched the hit British show – Sapphire and Steel. And the character Sapphire was so cool.

    So, as a child, I started to find out more about Sapphires. And ever since then, I am a fan. 🙂

    1. Wow Timotheus, thank you so much for this interesting backstory.

      Sapphire and Steel? I’ve never heard of it, but I’m curious enough to look it up. Thanks again for your positive feedback Tim.

      I wish you great success.

  6. I didn’t know where sapphire came from, thank you for telling me. Plus, I didn’t know sapphire could come in other colours, I always thought it was only blue. I admit that if sapphire shows honesty, loyalty and fidelity it is completely logical that we see them in engagement rings.
    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks a million Audrey. I too always thought of sapphires as blue, but after doing some research, I was astonished to find that they actually come in other colours. You learn something new every day 🙂

      Thank you for your comment.
