Sapphires are a beautiful symbol of eternal love. That’s why they’re such a favourite for engagement rings.
What many people might not realise is that sapphires come in a huge variety of colours: from a deep blue to a gorgeous turquoise, a vivid pink to the deepest of purples, and every shade in between. In this blog, we will explore the beauty of one particular colour, and that’s the incredible green sapphire.
Green sapphire is a perfect centrepiece for an engagement ring due to its hidden meanings, deep tones and colours, and longevity. This blog will be the perfect guide to green sapphire engagement rings. So, if green is your favourite colour, or your significant other’s, you might want to read ahead to see if this gemstone will be a part of your forever love story.
The Meaning Behind a Green Sapphire Engagement Ring
Engagement rings in themselves have a lot of meaning: they’re a promise of forever, they’re a history book of your love story, and they’re a symbol of what two people mean to each other. It’s why we at Jason Ree love to work with couples as they’re on this exciting journey of proposing and taking that next step.
If we add the magic of a green sapphire to an engagement ring, there can be a boundless amount of extra meanings and intricacies to the jewellery piece.
Sapphires stand for loyalty and trust: a beautiful statement in itself. But, when combined with the colour green, sapphires take on new meanings which make them even more special. Green sapphires symbolise tranquillity and calmness, and it is often said that those who wear a green sapphire engagement ring are those who encourage love, peace, and thoughtfulness
The Origins of the Green Sapphire
Sapphires have a long history that dates back to the Middle Ages when people wore them for guidance in times of trouble and in need of protection.
As with all sapphires, these green gemstones have an astrological connection to the month of September and the planet Saturn, so anyone aligned with these would find a special connection in wearing them.
\The colour of the green sapphire can vary according to how much iron is present; a pure gemstone is colourless. Sapphires are part of the Corundum family of gemstones, and they’re an extremely hard stone, scoring a 9 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, second only to a diamond. It’s because of this that we believe sapphires are a perfect choice for those who want an engagement ring with a gorgeous pop of colour!
What to Look For in a Green Sapphire Engagement Ring
The main thing you should look out for when considering buying a green sapphire engagement ring is its colour, tone, and saturation.
Green sapphires are of exceptional beauty. At Jason Ree, we have absolutely breathtaking Green Sapphires from Australian soil: the colour tones of the green shades really reflect our environment, with watery green colours reminiscent of our beautiful oceans, and deeper greens of our bushland. They’re incredibly diverse, and this is part of their beauty, so find a colour that speaks to you. However, if you want a stone that has value, pay attention to its tone and saturation. Some stones have deeper colour saturation than others, and it’s typically said that the more consistent and intense the colour of the sapphire, the more value it has in it.
It’s also important to look at the clarity of the stone to ensure that it is “eye-clean” and has no imperfections to the eye. The cut of the stone can vary: sapphires are extremely versatile and so can be worn in many different cuts, like oval, round, cushion, emerald, and pear.
