The pink sapphire engagement ring here was one of first engagement rings Richard made, and benefitted from him not knowing what wasn’t possible. Diamonds twinkle through the sapphire and from atop the claws. The soft pale yellow of the 9ct white gold complemented the pink sapphire beautifully. The client wanted a rough hewn texture and has come back for a whole collection of jewellery that continues the theme.

Sapphires and rubies are the same material, corundum, and available in many different colours. Corundum is the second hardest natural substance after diamond, which makes it very suitable for engagement rings.

Along with the pink sapphire engagement ring you can see examples of various coloured sapphire engagement rings as well as ruby engagement rings.
