Sapphire and Diamond Ring
Sapphires and diamonds together in a ring are not just a statement of style; they’re a symphony in precious stone form.
As a passionate lover of both gemstones, I can’t help but admire how sapphires are diamonds’ best friends—they absolutely complement each other, bringing out the brilliance and color in ways that seem almost magical.
In this blog, we’ll explore some ideas for sapphire and diamond rings, and answer some common questions about wearing and styling these gems.

Can You Wear Sapphire and Diamond Together?
Combining sapphire and diamond in a ring not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also creates a piece of jewellery with versatile wearability. This pairing is popular in both engagement rings and everyday pieces, celebrated for its striking contrast and eye-catching beauty. Sapphires bring rich, deep colours, while diamonds add sparkle and light, creating a perfect balance.   

What Metal Looks Best with Sapphire?

White gold or platinum

The beauty of sapphire is that it pairs wonderfully with a variety of metals. It is up to the wearer and their preference, but the most striking combinations are often found in white gold or platinum settings. These metals provide a sleek, bright background and clean pallete to make any colour sapphire stand out.
Add some diamonds for some sparkle and you have a forever incredible piece, that will stand the test of time.

Yellow and rose gold

On the other hand, yellow and rose gold metals are more traditional with rich history and thanks to their warmer tones, can highlight some colours and hues in sapphires which white metals would not be able to do. Other variations are two tone, where the band is yellow or rose gold and the setting (top of the ring) is white gold.

No matter your preference, we guide our clients through pros and cons of each metal and design, making sure they have a ring they will love to wear forever.

What is the Best Shape for a Sapphire Ring?

While sapphires look stunning in nearly any cut, the oval cut is often considered ideal.

This shape not only highlights the sapphire’s deep color but also maximizes the surface area visible on top of the ring, allowing for maximum light reflection alongside diamonds.

However, the choice of cut can depend on personal preference and style; for instance, a cushion cut can offer a softer, more antique look while a pear cut provides a modern aesthetic.

How to Choose the Right Sapphire and Diamond Ring

Choosing the right sapphire and diamond ring can be a delightful yet daunting task. Here are some tips to help make your decision easier:

1. Understand the Quality of Sapphires

Sapphires come in various colours and qualities. The value of a sapphire is typically determined by its colour, clarity, carat, and cut. The most sought-after sapphires are those that have a deep, rich blue colour. However, sapphires can come in a range of colours, including pink, yellow, and green. When choosing a sapphire, ensure it has a good balance between colour saturation and clarity.

2. Consider the Diamond Accents

Diamonds used in combination with sapphires usually serve as accents and should enhance the overall appearance of the ring. Look for diamonds that are well-cut to maximise their brilliance, as this will complement the sapphire beautifully. Ensure that the diamonds are also clear and free of visible inclusions.

3. Select the Appropriate Metal

The choice of metal not only affects the ring’s appearance but also its durability. Platinum and white gold are popular for their strength and ability to highlight the brilliance of both sapphires and diamonds. Consider your lifestyle and how often you plan to wear the ring when choosing the metal.

4. Ring Style and Personal Taste

Your personal style should guide your choice of ring. Whether you prefer a modern, minimalist design or a more elaborate, vintage style, ensure the ring reflects your personal taste. Consider how the ring fits with your overall wardrobe and other jewellery pieces.

5. Customization Options

If you’re looking for something unique, consider customizing your sapphire and diamond ring. Many jewellers offer bespoke services where you can design a ring that perfectly represents your style and personality.
