Peach Sapphire Engagement Rings
May 1, 2014
Sapphires are all the rage at the moment; in particular the stunning Ceylon and Australian Blue Sapphires. With celebrities setting trends worldwide with exquisite Sapphire rings, they are continuing to steadily grow in popularity.
Whilst Blue Sapphires are a wonderful choice, there are many other coloured Sapphires that are equally as exquisite. One of the rarest types of Sapphires is the Peach variety.
Padparadscha Sapphires, intense pink-orange in colour, are considered to be the most sought after and valuable of the fancy Sapphires. Sometimes described as being equal parts light pink and light orange, Peach Sapphires are a lighter version of the Padparadscha. Also rising in popularity are the pink-peach ‘Champagne’ Sapphires.
Peach Sapphires are a delicate and exquisite choice. They look stunning set into rose gold and when surrounded by white diamonds. They are also a wonderful alternative to coloured diamond engagement rings – especially if you can’t afford the hefty price tag of a Pink Diamond.
When looking for a Peach Sapphire for a custom made engagement ring it is a good idea to allow sufficient time to find the perfect stone. Unlike the popular Ceylon and Australian Blue Sapphires, Peach Sapphires are not so readily available. It may take some time to find the perfect shade and cut that you are after. It is also important to view a stone before purchasing it. The true colour and nature of a stone will only be revealed when viewing the stone with the naked eye. The clarity of a peach coloured Sapphire is also important. The lightness of this particular Sapphire means that any inclusions and cloudiness will be easily revealed.
One of the beautiful things about Peach Sapphires is that they look exquisite against all skin types. The beautiful peach tone complements both pale and olive skin tones.
Peach Sapphires are a beautiful choice and worth the time spent finding the right stone for you. When looking for gemstones it is a good idea to consider viewing slightly different shades as well as shapes. What might not sound like the perfect colour on paper might just be the stone you fall in love with in real life!
