Pink Sapphire Engagement Rings
Weddings are a very personal time. One in which the bride-to-be can create an occasion that reflects her tastes and style, a once in a life time celebration. Today, women are happily abandoning traditions that don’t fit their vision, and engagement rings are included in this shifting trend. The traditional engagement ring, of course, showcases the diamond as the stone of choice. However, for some women, the pink sapphire is giving the diamond a run for its money.
Types of Pink Sapphire Gemstone Rings by Milles Coeurs
Most pink sapphires engagement ring designs feature pink sapphires in combination with diamonds. Settings with either the pink sapphire as the center stone or the diamond as the center stone are common. In addition to the center stone, “accent” diamonds and pink sapphires can be found in halo patterns, side stones, or pave designs, adding extra sparkle and color to the overall ring design. Sapphires are cut in all the standard shapes.
Pink Sapphire Gemstones
The shade of the stone depends upon the presence of impurities. Some of these impurities can include oxygen, iron, titanium and copper. Each type of impurity will cause a different color to appear in the sapphire. A mixture of any two or more of these chemicals can cause a sapphire to be multicolored. If the stone has a high amount of chromium, the stone will appear reddish. The sapphires which have a large amount of chromium are deep red and are called rubies. That is to say, rubies are simply a type of sapphire.
Pink sapphires are even rarer than the traditional blue sapphire and are formed when corundum is combined with trace amounts of chromium. As the amount of chromium increases the sapphire deepens in color as does the price of the stone. Unlike diamonds, before the final polish, sapphires are usually heat-treated to improve the color and clarity. Heat enhancement does not reduce the sapphire’s value or quality. The Sapphire is a very durable gem, second in hardness only to the diamond. With proper care your sapphire engagement ring will wear well over generations. The pink sapphire is the picture of feminine beauty and love. Give her a ring that will celebrate all three. If she thinks that everything is prettier in pink, she will treasure a pink sapphire engagement ring for her entire lifetime.
