Sapphire Wedding Bands


Sapphire wedding bands are becoming increasingly popular. Far from being untraditional, the sapphire has long symbolized faithfulness and sincerity, making a sapphire wedding ring the perfect choice for your wedding or commitment ceremony.  And, with the increase in popularity of white metals, sapphires make a particularly striking choice. The contrast between the blue cornflower gemstone, the sparkle of diamonds, and a white gold or platinum setting will ensure your sapphire wedding band will be cherished for many generations.Click here to purchase this sapphire wedding band!

The finest sapphires were once considered to come from Burma and Kashmir. Today, those sources yield a very limited quantity of sapphire. Much of the sapphire wedding rings sold on today's market comes from gemstones found in Sri Lanka, Thailand and Cambodia. 

Another appealing characteristic of sapphire wedding bands are their durability. Sapphires are second only to diamonds as the hardest mineral known to humankind. Unlike most rings that are kept in jewelry boxes and worn on special occasions, wedding bands are often worn day in and day out. This makes a sapphire wedding ring set in platinum very appealing. 

Moh's scale of hardness classifies corundum, and subsequently sapphire, as having a hardness of 9. It should be noted that even though this is the second hardest mineral next to the diamond, it is only 1/140th as hard as a diamond. Conversely, it is seven times as hard as Topaz, number 8 on the list. Sapphire wedding bands are not only durable, they may be steam and ultrasonic cleaned. As with all gemstones, care should be taken against direct blows since they may crack the stones in your sapphire ring.
