Why A Sapphire Wedding Ring?
Sapphires are an excellent alternative to diamonds. They’ve long been associated with nobility, faithfulness, truth, and knowledge. As a result, they’re the perfect choice for relationships based on sincerity and openness.
Because of their historic use, they’re also a fantastic choice for people looking to embrace antique styles of rings.
The 4Cs of Sapphires
By far the most important factor when purchasing a coloured gemstone is its depth of colour. For sapphires, colour is truly what enchants us. This is achieved only when the sapphire in question has the perfect combination of hue, tone, and saturation. A sapphire lacking in any one of these can appear dull.
In addition to the blue sapphires, there are also a few other colour variations that are exceedingly valuable and rare. The first is called the Padparadscha sapphire. It is a rare pink-orange sapphire that was originally found in Sri Lanka.
The other rare form of sapphire are pink sapphires. These are extremely popular for their gorgeous pink hue. However, there is a fine line between what can be called a pink sapphire and what becomes a ruby.
A sapphire’s hue refers to the balance of colour in the stone when compared to its neighbours on the colour wheel. In the case of a wedding ring with a blue sapphire, you would refer to the colour of the stone as blue, slightly green, strong green, slightly purple, or strong purple.
The value of a sapphire sharply rises the closer you get to a pure blue. These pure blue sapphires are commonly referred to as cornflower blue.
The tone of a sapphire refers to how light or dark the colour is. Generally, it’s best to be within the medium to dark range, as lighter tones can look more watered down.
A sapphire’s saturation describes how vivid the colour is. This is on a scale from dull or weak to pure vivid. As you approach pure vivid, the more vibrant the colour of the sapphire will appear, and its value will subsequently increase.
Sapphires are naturally prone to inclusions. As a result, sapphires free of such defects will be suspected of being fake or treated.
Sapphires are commonly heat-treated as this improves both their clarity and their colour. However, sapphires that haven’t been treated are much more valuable.
When discussing clarity of sapphires, because all natural sapphires include imperfections, the key objective is to see if the sapphire is clean to the naked eye. The value of a sapphire increases sharply if it is relatively clear of inclusions.
Unlike diamonds, there aren’t standardized cuts for sapphires. With sapphires, you rely on the skill of the gem cutter to choose a cut that most enhances each sapphire’s colour, clarity, and overall brilliance.
Most well-cut sapphires will be symmetrical and reflect light at the best possible angles to enhance the sapphire’s natural beauty.
Gemstones vary wildly in terms of colour and density. This becomes clear when you consider the weight of a sapphire compared to the carat weight of a diamond.
Due to the fact that sapphires are usually heavier, a one-carat sapphire will be smaller than a diamond of the same carat weight. As a result, it is more accurate to examine the size of a sapphire through its millimetre diameter.
