There’s something special about seeing a twinkle of color greet you as you look down on your ring finger. And what better way to bring that color than with a stunning sapphire.
The sapphire has long been the favorite stone of kings and queens past for its rich color and dazzling sparkle. It was also the engagement ring of one Kate Middleton (and before that, Lady Di)! We can’t fault Prince William for picking a sapphire for the all-important engagement ring.
In terms of durability, sapphires are almost as tough as diamonds. It’s considered a classic for its association with royalty, but there’s also something really modern and chic about the various shades that sapphires can offer. From a deep midnight blue, a sweep of green, to the lightest tint of pink, it’s definitely a stone that turns heads.
We raved about Gardens of the Sun’s Origins collection last year. This summer they’ve added some gorgeous sapphire rings to their ethical gold collection!
Cornflower Blue Sapphire Ring in Eco Gold
This eye-catching shade of bright blue is the classic color that comes to mind when we talk about sapphires. Accompanied by tiny diamonds set in the band, this sapphire engagement ring is timelessly elegant.
Pastel Sapphire Ring Set in Rose Gold
Can you believe that this quirky ring set is all sapphire? It’s a fun combination of various shades of mermaid sapphires. An adventurous duo that shows off just how offbeat sapphires can be.
Green Ceylon Sapphire and Diamond Ring Set
Understated elegance is the name of the game with this sapphire and diamond ring set. Featuring a lush pear cut blue sapphire that’s nudged with a hint of green. Paired with a curved diamond nesting band for a little extra oomph.
Subtle in design, but with a hint of mischief from an unusual sapphire center. This ethical rose gold ring features a sapphire with light inclusions. Tiny little flecks of black and amber decorate a sapphire with clear swirls.
If you’re in love with sapphires, but want something a little more personalized, Gardens of the Sun also offers a custom gold sapphire ring featuring ethically sourced sapphires from Borneo. These eco-friendly sapphires are mined with low impact methods by indigenous communities that are paid a premium, and set in Gardens of the Sun signature ethical gold. Making this the ultimate ethical engagement ring!
You can pick your own sapphire and figure out how you want to design your ring, from which gold you like best, what setting you want, to any little extras you want to be added. You can check out the quick start guide on how to build your own customized ring we wrote previously, or you can contact their customer service team for a little help.
These ethical sapphire rings are perfect for the couple on the lookout for guilt-free gold jewelry, that’s a little more unique and a little more distinctive.
