Oval Ceylon Blue Sapphire Solitaire Ring in 14k yellow gold

Fine quality oval Ceylon sapphire in a 14k yellow gold solitaire ring setting

The blue sapphire rings we offer come in a range of sapphire colors and shapes. Some of our favorites are the classic solitaire or past present future styles likeĀ  GR-5654 (pictured on right), GR-5656 and GR-5678. GR-5654 features a gorgeous intense cornflower blue Ceylon sapphire in a substantial yellow gold mounting. The warmth of the yellow gold complements the sapphire’s hue. Our GR-5678 has a lighter blue Ceylon sapphire in a cushion cut. This particular gem is very lively and is set with fine quality trillion diamonds in platinum.

If you’re looking for a more unique shape, we have a spectacular heart shape Ceylon sapphire in a vintage styled semi mount. Our GR-5218 also has a matching band for those looking for engagement ring. We also love our band style ring, BR-100. Featuring a large and hard to find 8.2mm cushion cut light blue sapphire, this impressive design is made to be worn and enjoyed daily. The setting has a low profile and the wider band (nearly 8mm) sits comfortably on the finger.

For those looking for a darker tone in sapphires, we have two elegant emerald cut designs, GR-5677 and GR-5761, and a dazzling round diamond halo setting, GR-5785. One emerald cut design is done with a vintage style setting with engraving and milgrain edging. The faceting of the sapphire is completed by the baguette diamonds that flank each side. The other is done with a trio of round diamonds on either side of the sapphire for a more traditional look. Sapphires look amazing by themselves but there’s something about a diamond halo design that brings it to another level. Our GR-5785 features a wonderful rich blue 7.8mm round sapphire framed by a ring of diamonds. The contrast between the fine quality diamonds and the intensity of the sapphire is quite striking.
