7 Tips and Tricks for Buying a Sapphire Wedding Band
Buying a good quality sapphire wedding band can certainly be difficult, so please utilize our 7 tips and tricks for buying the perfect sapphire wedding band.
- Color: Sapphires are graded based on their hue, tone, and saturation. The most valuable sapphires have a strong hue and saturation. A royal blue sapphire is more prized than a light blue stone.
- Cut: Sapphires come in many different cuts and shapes. Pick the one you think suits you the best. Some of the most popular sapphire cuts are oval, brilliant, square, and baguette.
- Clarity: Sapphires typically come with a few imperfections, also called inclusions. In addition, when picking out a sapphire wedding band, stones with no inclusions noticeable to the naked eye are more valuable. However, pay attention to sapphires with no inclusions at all – it means that they’re synthetic.
- Carat weight: Sapphires are measured in carats. Larger gemstones are harder to come across and are more valuable, than smaller stones. The higher the carat weight, the higher the price due to its rarity.
- Origin: Blue sapphires are found in a few specific locations around the world. Sapphires from Sri Lanka, also called Ceylon sapphires, along with Madagascar sapphires are some of the most prized in the world.
- Width: The width of the band will determine the overall appearance and how the band feels on your finger. Trying on different widths is crucial to determine which one suits your taste. Wider bands are eye-catching, while narrow bands are more delicate and suitable for everyday wear.
- Platinum or gold band: There are many metal choices for your band, but platinum and gold are the most popular. Gold bands are a classic option and cost less. However, since platinum is 60% heavier than gold, it means it’s more durable and harder to break.
