Sapphire Rings

Sapphires are available in a rainbow of colour options and due to their hardness and wearability, are ideal for use in engagement rings. The most well-known type of sapphire is the blue sapphire, which can range in colour from deep royal blue (known as Australian blue) to light cornflower blue shades.

However, blue is not your only option when purchasing a sapphire. A little known fact is that sapphires are part of the larger corundum family, a type of crystal that also includes the gemstone ruby. Rubies are red corundum, and all other corundum, from pink and green to yellow and blue, are known as sapphires.

Diamonds are the hardest substance on earth, graded 10 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. Sapphires, or corundum, are graded 9 on this same scale, and are thus very resistant to scratching and chipping and ideal for use in jewellery, particularly jewellery such as engagement and wedding rings that are worn daily.

The value of sapphires depends on their clarity and the rarity of their colour. Deeply coloured natural sapphires are the most valuable of all sapphires. Australian sapphires are among the more affordable options and can be just as beautiful as the Ceylonese varieties. Sapphires with silky inclusions or of paler hues are often heat treated to achieve more even and intense colours.

I couldn't such much more about Larsen's and Jarrad than perfect.Like many probably clueless guys trying to choose a surprise engagement ring I went shopping to many many locations around Melbourne for weeks /months . Eventually I stumbled upon the Larsen shop almost accidentally and was immediately welcomed by Jarred who made me feel at ease with the whole process.He helped my choose the perfect ring for my (now wife) and it turned out amazingly. She loved it.So much so that 2 years down the track we just had to come back to Larsen's to get our wedding rings made. By this time we had some challenges around lockdowns and travel due to covid restrictions so most of the work was done online via video calls and a lot of back and forth with the team made so easy and simple.A major draw card for me too was how environmental aware and fair-trade the shop is.Environmental, fair trade, good service, amazing product.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the professionalism, attention to detail and service I received from Larsen Jewellery; and most notably from Anna. Anna was professional, knowledgeable and genuine throughout the entire experience. Anna took the time to explain the characteristics in selecting a diamond, understanding the perfect design I wanted, as well as answering any other questions I could think of. What made the experience even more special was realising that Anna would be the one making the ring. I believe that speaking to the person who will physically design and make the ring provides a unique aspect.The ring turned out to be perfect and my fiancé absolutely loved it.Thank you Larsen Jewellery and thank you Anna.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions? We’re happy to answer them! 

Are sapphire engagement rings popular?

Sapphire is the second most popular centre stone choice for an engagement ring after diamond. Not only are sapphire rings beautiful, they are also durable scoring 9 out of 10 on the MOH’s scale of hardness. This means a sapphire ring is quite resistant to damage even when worn every day.

Are all sapphires blue?

Sapphires form naturally in every colour of the rainbow as well as black and colourless. The blue shades are certainly the most well-known ranging from dark inky blue, through royal blue to pale cornflower blue. Teal, pink, green and yellow sapphires are also popular choices for engagement rings. It’s a little-known fact that rubies are also sapphires, ruby is simply the red variety.

Are sapphires more valuable than diamonds?

Sapphire rings are a fantastic choice if you’re looking for a more affordable engagement ring option. Most varieties cost just a fraction of the price of a similar-sized diamond. The exceptions to this are the larger specimens of the very rare colours such as padparadscha (peachy-orange) and blood-red ruby. The value of both of these can rival the price of a similar-sized diamond.

What designs are best for sapphire engagement rings?

Typically, sapphire engagement rings also feature diamonds. Whether in a 3 stone design or a halo design, diamonds are often included to provide a contrast to the coloured centre stone. Sapphires look stunning set in classic, vintage or nature-inspired designs and can make a striking centrepiece in more contemporary styles.
