I have always been obsessed with the royals, even though I am not English or from England. Maybe it is the glamorous fashion, the living in a castle full time, or wearing a crown on a random Tuesday; I am convinced that I should have royal blue blood in my veins.
Being in the jewelry industry for most of my life, I have come into contact with many sparkly things. I have my favorites that I lust over as they come and go. I often get enchanted by a diamond that is completely flawless, or a vintage piece with a history, or a gemstone ring that I fantasize may have been a part of the crown jewels. This week I want to highlight one of my favorite pieces in our store right now. Behold this blue sapphire engagement ring!!! ~~
This ring has had me captivated since it first came up for sale and was photographed. It just screams royalty to me! It has a natural, oval faceted cut, blue sapphire in the center with a double halo of diamonds gently encircling it. The sides of the halo have an open infinity type shank that compliments the halo nicely. This particular sapphire has been certified by GIA (Gemological Institute of America) by a graduate gemologist and weighs 3.10cts. It has a deep but lively blue color that is rich and eye-catching. The diamonds are a high quality to add a touch more sparkle to the exquisite sapphire. The setting is crafted from luxurious 18K white gold. I may not have been born into the royal family but this ring would sure make any girl feel like a princess.
If you are thinking about a possible gemstone ring for your engagement or wedding ring like Princess Kate, bear in mind that dark blue is a very versatile color. Again, I am obsessed with the princess’ every move and fashion choice. I have seen her wear tailored suits, formal ball gowns, low key casual dresses, and even jeans. All the while her sapphire ring is just dazzling away and complimenting her wide range of wardrobe choices. The dark blue color looks elegant with other blue pallets, but also blends well with greens, black, reds, yellows and even pinks. I don’t know if we are ready to accept blue as a neutral yet but it is safe to say that sapphire blue will find an easy home among your day-to-day clothing colors!
