Sapphires have been a favored selection for engagement ring for many centuries, and up until the twentieth century more sapphires graced the fingers of the recently engaged than diamonds. In modern times the most sought after center stone is a diamond, and it has become a standard request at Knox Jewelers for an engagement ring. However, a growing percentage of couples are opting to include rich colored sapphires to their custom created rings.
Throughout the ages, sapphires have come to represent faithfulness and loyalty, hence their wide use in bridal jewelry. Recent events in history have also linked sapphires to the ideals of romance and royalty.
Apart from their chromatic allure, sapphire is also a practical choice for jewelry worn on a daily basis, like an engagement ring or wedding band. Corundum, the mineral name for sapphire, is ranked 9 on the Mohs Scale, and is hard enough to withstand everyday wear and tear. This being said, it is not indestructible.
With our custom created engagement rings and wedding bands the possibilities are endless. Customizing your engagement ring with the inclusion of sapphires will make it a truly personalize, one-of-a-kind piece.
