Even royalty use it, such as when Prince William gifted his Duchess a sapphire engagement ring that once belonged to his late mother.
There are many shapes and cuts sapphires are made into, each oriented towards optimally showcasing the color and sparkle of the stone. These gems look spectacular when surrounded by accent diamonds, in what is called the halo style, because the smaller stones encircle the center gem in a way similar to an angel’s halo.
Sapphires also look beautiful when you set them singly in a solitaire setting, with a metal shank holding the stone. The metal used in a diamond sapphire ring can be one among yellow gold, platinum, palladium, rose gold, and white gold.
