Sapphire Rings

Choose from our sapphire engagement rings below or create your own unique design. All the designs in the gallery can be personalised to suit your individual style and preferences. Read more about sapphire engagement 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.

Amazing service and beautifully designed engagement ring! I bought an custom made engagement ring and had the lovely Natalie help me create this for my fiancé. I did a lot of research before I made any appointments to see someone about creating a ring, Natalie was able to take that even further, explaining more than what you can find online and helping me design the perfect ring. They have ethically sourced diamonds, the gold is fair trade and a life time guarantee on the ring which was a big part in the decision.Do yourself a favour and see the team at Larsen Jewellery they will look after you well!

Wouldn’t hesitate recommending Larsen Jewellery. I bought my own sapphire and Chris turned it into just the piece of jewellery I had imagined. It was a great experience and I will definitely be coming back to Chris at Larsen in the future.

I couldn't be happier with Larsen's beautiful engagement ring for my partner. Not only was the ring stunning, the customer service was first class. Christopher was very knowledgeable and perfect for someone who doesn't know much about rings. They are more interested in tailoring the most suitable ring for your needs and not just quoting you the highest price.Would highly recommend!

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.
