When thinking of sapphires, royal blue gemstones typically come to mind.
Although the blue sapphire is the most widely recognized sapphire shade, sapphires actually come in a wide range of colors, from pink to yellow, and even white.
What is a White Sapphire?
Mined from the earth, sapphires are a type of aluminum oxide. Slight differences in the chemical properties of the stone’s composition cause the variation in color, resulting in the icy white color of some stones. With a similar look to that of diamonds, a white sapphire ring can offer a beautiful, more affordable alternative to the traditional engagement ring center stone.
While not as brilliant as diamonds, white sapphires are prized for their bright, white glow and durability. When pairing a white sapphire with a setting, ring styles with diamond accents are a great way to add fire and sparkle, while minimalist bands serve to accentuate the color of the stone. Whatever the style, white sapphire rings make for a stunning choice. Discover our favorite white sapphire engagement ring styles below!
