6 Amazing Antique Sapphire Engagement Rings

There’s just something about sapphires–these richly hued gemstones have been prized since antiquity, and were some of the first gems to be cut and polished.

Because they have long symbolized loyalty, sapphires make perfect focal points for engagement rings, and are never more entrancing than when found in a ring from a romantic era of the past. We think you’ll love these gorgeous sapphire rings in our Antique and Vintage jewelry collection:

Also, sapphire is my birthstone & the Monica is simply & elegantly understated.

The bezel setting of the Monica shows off the round sapphires stunningly. The floral design of the surrounding diamonds in the white gold settings makes this ring special. The gold band allows for a beautiful contrast. The ring appears to lie low on the hand & be very comfortable. not rising up to catch on fabrics & other items. For these reasons it is my favorite! 😉

Since I have a sapphire engagement ring I obviously have an affinity for these rings. I must say that I don’t care for many of the settings as they don’t let the sapphire take center stage.

I like them all, but I think the Catalonia is very pretty and in a different class than the others. Second best , In my opinion is Arabesque. Very pretty.
