Sapphires are Incredibly UniqueSapphires are one of the most unique gemstones you could ever purchase, making them a one-of-a-kind engagement ring centre stone. Because of varying shades, clarity, and cuts, no two sapphires are the same - even if they look near identical in colour. This means that whatever stone you choose is entirely unique, yet equally as beautiful.
Customised pieces are always possible with sapphire stones. No matter what stone you choose, each piece will be entirely one-of-a-kind. And that’s pretty special!
Sapphire Stones are Durable
Sapphires are durable. Engagement rings are so special, yet are meant to be worn every day - which can give any bride or groom to be some nerves! But, with a sapphire engagement ring, you can wear your engagement ring every single day without it scratching or cracking.
With a sapphire ring coming in second to only the diamond on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, you know that your ring can withstand pretty much any of your day-to-day activities! So, wear your ring with ease.
Sapphires Come in a Variety of Colours
At Jason Ree, we know that the most widely-known colour of sapphire is royal blue sapphire! Famed for being the engagement ring of choice for Princess Diana and now Princess Catherine, this sapphire colour is incredibly beautiful and with special meaning too.
But, sapphires come in a huge array of colours, so you can choose a sapphire that suits you and your loved one. From a vivid green to a rose pink, a sparkling turquoise reminiscent of the ocean, or a clear white similar to a diamond, sapphires have a huge variety of colours. This is part of what makes them just so special
Sapphires Pair Well with Differing Metals
At Jason Ree, we understand that most people are either gold, or they’re silver. With some opting for beautiful rose gold, you have metals that you favour over the years and opt for similar tones throughout your lives. This is no different when it comes to choosing an engagement ring: you want the stone set into the ring to pair well with the metal you choose, whether it be gold, silver, platinum or rose gold, etc.
Thankfully, sapphires go with all metals. This means no matter whether you’re a silver or gold person, you can choose this gemstone as the centrepiece of your ring! Plus, as we’ve said, sapphires come in many different colours, making your promise of eternal love entirely customisable to suit you.
Engagement rings are a promise of forever, and at Jason Ree, we love the sapphire stones can play a part of this promise. They’re the perfect choice for an engagement ring, thanks to their uniqueness, differing colours, and beautiful meanings behind each type.
