Don't want a diamond because you're squicky about where they came from? Or maybe you just want something more colorful? But, dang, you want your ring to be durable like a diamond. Then a sapphire engagement ring is the best way to go.
Hard as a rock
Did you know that sapphires are one of the four precious gemstones that are almost as hard as a diamond. They get a nine out of 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness! So you can still play roller derby like a monster AND get your bling on like a princess, at the same time.
All the colors of the rainbow
Sapphires come in gray, black, white, violet, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue… pretty much all hues and shades can be found! If you're looking for a unique colored engagement ring, check out this rainbow of choices:
