Different Colours of sapphire diamond rings you can buy in London
Sapphire is a beautiful gemstone that is well known for its colour and durability. It has a striking appeal and is one of the most sought after gemstones today. It is the third hardest stone after diamond and is a type of corundum that typically has a vibrant blue hue. The most iconic sapphire jewellery is the blue sapphire ring that once belonged to Princess Diana, which adorns the hands of The Duchess of Cambridge. The ring has a bright blue centre stone that is surrounded along its circumference by a series of tiny colourless diamonds.
Even though sapphires are typically blue in colour, there are other varieties of sapphires that have a different shade. The presence of certain trace elements in the structural composition of the stone often gives it a colour that is not blue. Therefore, naturally occurring sapphires can be of yellow, white, purple, pink, orange and green hues and are called fancy sapphires. Sapphire engagement rings can have any of the above-mentioned colours of sapphire and look equally beautiful. Some of the most beautiful and popular among them have been listed below.
The blue sapphire is the most popular sapphire whose colour can vary from a light baby blue to a deep vibrant blue. There are several types of rings that are available with the blue sapphire that look absolutely stunning and are popular because the colour blue is supposed to signify love, fidelity and purity in a wedding. That’s why most brides like to wear something blue on their big day which can be sapphire jewellery.
The second most popular sapphire is the pink-hued sapphire which gets its colour from the presence of chromium in its structure. Depending upon the quantity of chromium, the pink sapphires can have light pink colour to a deep magenta hue. This feminine colour is an absolute favourite among women, most of whom prefer to have it as the centre stone of their ring.
The yellow sapphire is truly a beauty and the delightful hue makes it a treat to the eyes. The presence of trace element iron gives the sapphire a distinctly yellowish hue that can range from orangish yellow to greenish-yellow. The yellow sapphire is quite loved by jewellery enthusiasts because of its striking appearance.
Orange sapphires get their colour from the presence of both iron and chromium. They are one of the rarest colours of stones that are available in the market and this is why they are so unique.
The purple sapphire is associated with spirituality, calm and peace and makes a stunning addition to any jewellery they are a part of. The presence of the element vanadium gives the stone different shades of purple hue depending upon the quantity. The purple sapphire is a rarity in nature and gives a luxurious feel to the rings they are a part of.
Another rare gemstone is a padparadscha sapphire that is known for its unique pinkish-orange hue. It is one of the rarest coloured fancy sapphires that is simple yet stunning and can enhance the beauty of the ring and make it stand out from the rest. This colour can rarely be matched with anything on the coloured diamonds guide and they are therefore a bit more expensive than the other sapphires.
