The gemstone is what sets your ring apart from all others. It is ribbon on a beautifully wrapped present. The lemon in your glass of water. Why not make it something that adds a bit of pizzazz? While there are many colorful gemstones to choose from, some of the most sought-after colored gemstones are sapphires. Read on to find out why vintage sapphire engagement rings are gaining in popularity. Instead of just traditional diamonds, we adorn our engagement rings with emeralds, sapphires, and rubies. Emeralds bring fresh vitality, rubies signify passion, and sapphires bring calm. Perhaps to counteract the stress of preparing to wed, sapphires have recently become the go-to jewel for the trendy couple looking to get engaged. Blue is a color that also symbolizes understanding and loyalty. This makes a blue sapphire a great stone to build a marriage with one of our vintage sapphire engagement rings. What is the saying? “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe,” goes the traditional English rhyme. What if your “something blue” was already a staple item of jewelry that you wore daily? That might be why our vintage sapphire engagement rings are flying off the shelves. The blue sapphire gem is a “something blue” that is worn long beyond your wedding day, and a reminder of what is to come before the highly anticipated story. Another reason sapphires are a popular choice is that they are more affordable than other gems, so you can indulge in a larger stone even with a smaller budget. Yet, these jewels are still very glamourous. Public figures like Kate Middleton have worn vintage sapphire engagement rings, which of course make them even more alluring. You can look like royalty without spending a fortune. What is there to lose? Sapphires are strong, durable stones, which makes them a good choice when purchasing a keepsake item you want to keep around for years or even generations to come. Adding color to your engagement ring can be a whimsical touch to make your selection unique. Though blue is the most popular color for sapphires, the stones also come in yellow, green, and pink. Vintage sapphire engagement rings provide something for everyone.
