What Does a Sapphire Engagement Ring Mean?

The meaning behind sapphire engagement rings goes way, way back. In ancient cultures, sapphire talismans were thought to have strong medicinal and protective powers because their blue color symbolized the heavens, says Yehouda Saketkhou, CEO of Yael Designs. A representation of honesty and wisdom, sapphires soon became the preferred gem of medieval royalty and clergy. Kings even wore them when they signed treaties as a symbol of good luck. In modern day, sapphire engagement rings are associated with wisdom and fidelity, as well as old-world romance. They’re the traditional gift for a 45th wedding anniversary, and just so happen to be the engagement ring of choice for the British royal family. After all, Kate Middleton’s stunning 18-carat, blue sapphire engagement ring given to her by Prince William was originally presented to Princess Diana, and is perhaps one of the most famous sparklers in the world.

Where Do Sapphires Come From?

While some of the most valuable sapphires in history were mined in Kashmir and Myanmar (Burma), these days most of the world’s sapphires come from Sri Lanka and Australia, says Douglas Hucker, CEO of the American Gem Trade Association. Since Sri Lanka has been producing sapphires for thousands of years (like the Logan sapphire, one of the largest sapphires in the world), you’ll pay for the historic connection, Hucker says. There are also smaller artisanal mines that use old-fashioned techniques (read: digging and sifting for stones by hand) in Madagascar. Though production in this developing country is spottier than in others, some of the sapphires produced there are just as high quality as those from Sri Lanka. Though not as valuable, sapphires are also mined in Montana.

Choosing the Right Sapphire Engagement Ring for You 

It goes without saying that the most important quality in a blue sapphire is the richness of its color. A perfect blue sapphire will be royal blue without any modifying colors, such as gray, green or black, which might make the stone look inky or change its hue, according to Hucker. The cut of a sapphire isn’t as important as the cut of a diamond, because it’s harder to see inclusions (read: internal flaws) in darker stones with the naked eye. No standardized quality-grading system exists for colored gemstones, but it’s rare to find a natural sapphire without inclusions. Bottom line: Don’t worry about finding a flawless stone—as long as there aren’t severe dark inclusions, you’re good. No matter the shape of your stone (as long as it’s symmetrical), look for one with even color and consistent sparkle. As with any gemstone, the setting choose will also help to determine the overall style of your bling. For example, an oval sapphire in an geometric white gold setting with pave details has an art deco feel, while a round stone in a yellow gold setting has a more modern vibe.

Pro tip: This may sound super technical, but it’s important to know whether or not your sapphire is natural or heat treated. Some sapphires are found closer to thermal venting in the earth, which produces saturated color thanks to natural heating. More commonly, sapphires are treated with heat to enhance the richness of their color. Naturally vibrant sapphires that don’t require any heat treatment will command a premium price, but they’re also very hard to find, says Deirdre Featherstone, founder of Featherstone Design. Before you obsess over finding an untreated sapphire, know that heat treatments are permanent and don’t affect the quality. In some cases, they can strengthen the chemical makeup, Hucker says. However, make sure you’re dealing with a reputable jeweler who uses standard treatments—not nonstandard ones like dyeing—before you buy.

Other Colorful Sapphires 

If a blue sapphire ring isn’t your thing, don’t fret. While blue sapphires are the rarest and most valuable, this gorgeous stone actually occurs in a rainbow of hues—and other colors tend to be more budget friendly. Sapphires that aren’t blue (think: pink sapphires and yellow sapphires) are a great option if you want the look of a pink or yellow diamond engagement ring but don’t want to splurge.

Caring for Your Sapphire Engagement Ring 

Though sapphire rings are almost as durable as diamond rings, they still require special care. Grace Terezian, creative director of Kirk Kara, recommends using warm water, mild soap and a soft-bristle toothbrush for everyday cleaning. Take your sapphire ring to a jeweler for an in-depth cleaning at least once a year. If you own an estate piece, have your jeweler check the security of the stone once in a while—prong settings in particular can loosen over time.
