20 Sapphire Engagement Rings in White Metal

One of the most popular alternative gemstones to diamonds when it comes to engagement rings is the sapphire. Being a 9 on the Mohs Hardness Scale makes sapphires durable enough for everyday wear, and blue is a very easy color to pair with most outfits so it will never look out of place. The historical prominence of sapphires as an engagement ring go well back into history, though recently the famous oval sapphire worn by Princess Diana and Kate Middleton has ignited the stone’s popularity.
