The best sapphire engagement rings: Explore our favourite styles

Sapphires have become widely popular ever since Princess Diana revealed her oval blue Ceylon sapphire engagement ring to the world. With this level of royalty showing a fondness for sapphires, this iconic stone has assumed a great deal of influence in the bridal industry. And the admiration for this particular gemstone has not stopped there with its legacy cemented once more in 2010, when Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother’s ring.

Despite how long it has been since these high profile engagements, the popularity of non-diamond centre stones, particularly sapphires hasn't gone anyway. If fact demand has spiked as consumers search for more sustainable and unique alternatives to traditional diamonds.

Available in an array of colours and cuts (not just blue!) sapphires offer plenty of variety with colours such as purple, pink, yellow, green, orange, brown, black, and even white up for choice — although kashmir and ceylon blue are the most sought-after.
