Things to know about Sapphires

  • When many people think of sapphires, they think of a deep, royal blue. What you might not know is that sapphires come in pink, yellow, green, red, and more. There is even a ‘star sapphire’ which exhibits a six-ray star pattern on a cabochon cut stone. Vinca has all of these colors and cuts in stock and ready to place on your finger or neck.
  • Some sapphire stones have the ability to change colors, depending on the light. They can be blue in the sunshine and purple outside. Come see Vinca to witness this amazing transformation!
  • Sapphire rings are on the hands of royalty. The most famous modern-day sapphire is now worn by Princess Catherine. The ring was given by Prince Charles to Lady Diana in 1981. It’s an 18-carat oval blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds.
  • Sapphire is the September birthstone, and how lucky for these babies – they have so many sapphire colors and sapphire styles to choose from!
  • The sapphire color comes from the trace elements in corundum, a mineral. When corundum contains iron and titanium, sapphires are blue. Chromium makes the stone in your sapphire ring turn pink, and an even higher concentration of chromium turns it a deep ruby red.
  • The paparadscha sapphire is the rarest form of the stone. It’s named after the color of the lotus blossom. It has a pinkish orange glow and can be a beautiful alternative engagement ring stone. Vinca has a trusted paparadscha source, and we’ve put beautiful paparadscha sapphire engagement rings on the hands of many of our customers.

Versatile: Sapphires are versatile and can be worn as rings, earrings, pendants and more. They can be used as large center stones, where diamonds or other gemstones are added as accents. These sapphires work well with subtle, neat designs or traditional, vintage settings as well.

Affordable: Buying a solitaire diamond ring may be expensive. However, getting a mix of sapphires and diamonds for your ring can make it affordable. If you want to make a splash with your jewelry without going beyond your budget, a sapphire engagement ring is the one to opt for.

Popular and Desirable: Sapphires have been a favorite of the royals for centuries, the sapphires were said to have curative and shielding powers symbolizing wisdom and honesty. Thanks to Kate Middleton sporting the sapphire ring, a sapphire engagement ring has become popular and desirable especially for its rich color and strength.


Fragile: Though harder than other gemstones such as rubies and emeralds, sapphires chip and scratch more easily than diamonds.

Low fluorescence:  Sapphires do not refract light as much as diamonds. While diamonds are more brilliant, most people who select a sapphire value the stone for its color. The trace elements present in corundum define the color of the sapphire.

No sparkle: Unlike diamonds that sparkle and shine in all light conditions, not all sapphires shine. A white sapphire ring may not sparkle if it is dirty or needs polishing.
