Every shade except for?
Sapphire engagement rings come in so many various colors, from white, yellow, pink, to most recognized blue, all the way to black. There is one colour however which belongs to ruby, and that is of course red. Even more interesting are bi-colour or parti sapphires, where mother nature has truly excelled as an artist.
The colour of sapphires is determined by the presence of trace elements during its formation. For instance, the presence of iron and titanium results in a blue sapphire, while chromium leads to pink sapphires. Understanding the origin of the color can add an extra layer of appreciation and significance to the chosen sapphire.
