Today’s photograph

Our photograph today, leads us beautifully into our short blog featuring a new version of the Fliss engagement ring design. Introduced only today, and photographed this morning, we have sourced some of the most vivid, beautiful pink sapphires to combine with white diamond shoulders.

Are pink sapphires suitable for engagement rings?

“Sapphire” derives from the Latin “Sapphirus” which means dear to the planet Saturn. Fancy sapphires such as pinks work wonderfully well for engagement rings. [We have already noted their suitability alongside diamonds for this purpose]. With a scratch resistance of 9 on the Moh’s scale, they follow behind diamonds for their hardness and are suitable for long term wear. A deep pink colour and an excellent clarity are certainly desirable properties to look for. Sapphire is a part of the corundum family of precious gemstones. There are further variations of rare and valuable pink sapphires such as the Padparadscha sapphires with their pinkish-orange colouration.

Contrast and Colour

White diamonds work wonderfully well with coloured gemstones. The neutrality of F colour VS1 clarity, within white metal, further enhances the vivid pink. Matching the square shape of both sapphires and diamonds, with the sleek uninterrupted appearance of the channel setting, ensures a wonderfully balance.
