Sapphires come from corundum minerals. The most popular one is blue sapphire, but did you know that they come in many colors such as green, pink, purple, yellow, black and white? It can basically come in every color except red. Red stones that come from corundum minerals are called rubies.
Often associated with royalty and wisdom, this stone only grows in popularity. Most famous sapphire must be Princess Diana’s blue sapphire engagement ring (now it belongs to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge). You can also surprise your loved one with this September birthstone as a gift for 5th and 45th wedding anniversary.
The most known one is royal blue sapphire, but it can also come in a pale light blue color. The most valuable ones come in dark blue, almost purple-blue or green-blue color. But those secondary colors (green and purple) should not come in at more than 15%. Purity and clarity are another important thing we should consider when buying a blue sapphire engagement ring.
Green sapphire is the least known sapphire. But it’s rarity doesn’t have a major impact on the price. When shopping for a green sapphire ring we should consider especially with light green stones, it’s clarity because imperfections show on these beauties more than on the other sapphires. But don’t let this distract you from the fact that green sapphires are cheaper and harder than most of the other green stones.
Like other sapphires, peach sapphires also grow in popularity. So when choosing this piece of jewelry you are not only going to have a gorgeous ring, but you will be ahead of everyone with this trend.
Another lesser known stone but still extremely beautiful especially because it’s shifting blue and green color. Perfect teal sapphire stones have 50-50 green and blue stone colors. It’s considered to be a great investment because of its rarity.
