Sapphires, Rubies and Emeralds as Engagement Rings Fine jewelry, aside from the top seller diamonds, makes use of other precious gemstones, such as sapphires, rubies and emeralds, which are set-up in various, creative designs as gemstone materials for engagement rings. Provided are the background information of sapphires, rubies and emeralds. Sapphires are mineral stones called corundum, which is the crystalline form of aluminum oxide, and which comes in a variety of gemstone colors, such as blue (a common choice color), pink, yellow, green, purple. For sapphire stones, which are in a red form, they are no longer called sapphires, but rubies. A jeweler’s standard guidelines, the 4 C’s – cut, clarity, color and carat, is the yardstick in assessing a gemstone’s value and quality, such that for sapphires, in which they are rarer than diamonds, their clarity of the stone, color and carat value will depend on the source location of where the sapphire stone was mined, with blue and pink as high valued gemstones, while their cut will depend on the jeweler’s creative design.

Jewelry: 10 Mistakes that Most People Make
Sapphire gemstones have been historically associated with royalty and symbolize sincerity and faithfulness, such that King Solomon’s seal was believed to be made from sapphire, Prince William of England proposed to Kate Middleton with his mother’s iconic sapphire engagement ring, and 45th wedding anniversaries use sapphire as its symbolic ring celebration. Like that of sapphires, rubies have the same Corundum composition, but with the exception that it comes in a red form, which is due to the presence of chromium, being an impurity in the stone, but considered a rarity, making rubies as valuable gemstones. The value of rubies is that they are extremely rare gemstones, in fact much rarer than diamonds, and that’s why they are classified as highly valued gemstones, especially those mined from Burma. Just like the sapphire stones, rubues are among the hardest gemstones attaining a scale of 9 in the Moh’s hardness scale. Emeralds come from a mineral called beryl, which is also the same mineral component in such gemstones as aquamarine, helidor, and morganite. Emeralds, just like rubies, contain an element impurity called chromium, which results in a grass green emerald color, and which makes the emeralds as very rare and highly valuable gemstones. Emeralds, too, are rarer than diamonds and the range of their degree of value is dependent on the range of their green coloring, such that the intense grass green color is most desirable and, therefore, highly valuable compared to the pale green color. In the Moh’s scale, the hardness of emeralds is 8, which means that these stones are reasonably durable, and, therefore, vulnerable to heat damage and extreme changes in temperature, which can cause them to break.
