Diamonds & Sapphires

28th Feb 2023

When looking at engagement rings it's extremely important to choose stones that - just like your love - will stand the test of time.

Diamonds are not only a girls best friend but a classic engagement ring choice. A timeless beauty, diamonds score a 10 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, which makes them the hardest gemstone available. When you’re committing to a ring you which will be worn daily you want to be sure it’s up to the job. Diamonds not only shine bright but are the strongest choice for daily wear.

Sapphires are a popular alternative to diamonds, sitting at 9 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, slightly below diamonds making these beautiful stones up for the task of daily wear. Coming in a rainbow of colours and an array of cuts, sapphires are famous for the Freeform cut. Freeform cut sapphires allow for more of the stone to shine making them a gorgeous contemporary option.

Diamonds and sapphires are a dream duo. The combination of stones is a beautiful and hardwearing option for any engagement ring. The Argyle champagne diamond ring below pairs wonderfully with the Madagascan parti sapphires.
