All You Need to know About Green Sapphire Engagement Rings
Published on Jun 24, 2020
If you’re searching for an engagement ring center stone for your fiancé-to-be that’s unique and elegant, a green sapphire can be a fantastic choice.
Although most people associate sapphire with the color blue, sapphires come in a wide range of different colors. Sapphires in colors other than blue are called “fancy sapphires,” with green one of several colors.
Over the last decade, green sapphires have become increasingly popular as a choice of center stone for engagement rings. If you’re looking for a non-traditional alternative to a diamond, or if green is your fiancé-to-be’s favorite color, a green sapphire can be a fantastic choice.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A GREEN SAPPHIRE ENGAGEMENT RING:
Most of our engagement ring guides focus on the process of buying a diamond, with a focus on the four Cs. However, buying a green sapphire — or any type of sapphire, for that matter — is a different process that requires a different approach.
While a diamond is valued for its brilliance, the main factor that affects a sapphire’s beauty and value is its color.
Although the clarity and cut of a sapphire are still important, they’re less important than they are for a diamond. Instead, it’s best to focus on choosing a green sapphire with the best color and a suitable carat weight, all while suiting your budget.
TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST GREEN SAPPHIRE RING
Although buying a green sapphire engagement ring is less complicated than buying a diamond ring, there are still a variety of tactics that you can use to get the best center stone and ring for your budget:
Choose a suitable metal: Green sapphires are very versatile and can look elegant and beautiful with both white and yellow metals. Common choices include 14 or 18k white or yellow gold, rose gold and platinum.
Consider halo or pavé settings: Green sapphire can look gorgeous alongside a halo of smaller diamonds. Not only do diamonds add to the ring’s beauty — they also emphasize the sapphire’s unique color and beauty.
Pay attention to color: As we mentioned above, green sapphires can vary a great deal in color tone, hue and saturation. Use the HD videos and photos to carefully assess a stone’s color before you make a final decision.
Look for a certificate of authenticity: While you’re spending such a huge amount, ensure that the money is spent in the right place. It is very common that sellers are heating and oiling the gemstone to enhance the appearance, but do not fall in their trap. Make sure to buy authentic and original Green Sapphire that comes with a certificate of authenticity from a reputed lab.
Check measurements, not just carat weight: Finally, remember to check a Green Sapphire’s measurements as well as its carat weight. This will give extra context about the actual size of gemstone and help you get a better picture of how it will look on your fiancé-to-be’s finger.
