Crazy For Blue Sapphire Engagement Rings

Haven’t you noticed? Some of the hottest celebrities today—think Kate Middleton, Penelope Cruz, and Elizabeth Hurley—have gotten blue sapphire engagement rings from their beaus. Are we seeing a trend here? Let’s look closer at the wedding jewellery of these stars and the different elegant styles they come in.

A present from Princess Diana


Representing the once-starry-eyed engagement of the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles, the 28-year-old ring was a gift of love to her sons, and was then passed on to Kate. More than the design, the story behind the ring is the very thing that captures the world’s attention. It’s the promise of a fairytale wedding and a blissful royal life together.

A love so true



Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem started dating in 2007, and three years later, he proposed to her with a three-carat blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds. Today, the pair have a baby son, Leo, whom they dote upon and shower with love.

Lovelier the second time around


Both actress Elizabeth Hurley and former Australian cricket player Shane Warne had been divorced before, and are now in love with each other and engaged to be married. He proposed to her over dinner in Scotland with a nine-carat blue sapphire ring set between two diamonds.

Here are some options and wedding ideas for a blue sapphire engagement ring:


1 – Brilliant cut set in white gold

2 – Oval cut set in yellow gold

3 – Cushion cut set in white gold

4 – Emerald cut set in white gold

Sapphires have long symbolized truth, faithfulness, and sincerity, making it the perfect gem for a wonderful marriage to come.
