I love the look of white sapphires. They are totally different from diamonds imo. I own 2 rings but only have the store photos. I like the clarity of lab-made sapphires. They are a nice white, and I love them most in sunset lighting 😉

I have a white sapphire ring set in silver. It holds up well. White sapphires were apparently the stone of choice for wedding rings before diamonds became popular instead. Not sure how true that is but it’s cool to me. 🙂

TogetherThroughLife:  That ring is AWESOME! Pear is one of  my favorite cuts. Very smart to have it set in a bezel….no worries about losing the stone with silver being softer than gold. Honestly, silver is my favorite of all metals….I think it just shines so much prettier than white gold.

I have a natural, white sapphire engagament ring. I ADORE my ring, and have fallen in love with white sapphires since getting it. I was so terrified it would look like glass, but it has the most beautiful glitter in all kinds of light. It throws blue light, and sometimes it throws rainbows, too. What’s really intriguing is that it is much more sparkly in indoor light than in outdoor light, which I think is the opposite for diamonds. I think you’ve made a wonderful choice. Here’s my beautiful solitaire! 

You don’t need to worry about it being delicate. Sapphires are very hard, and durable stones. We were considering sterling silver, too, but ultimately went with white gold.

I have a white sapphire RHR and I clean it with some Dial foaming hand soap and a soft toothbrush. Makes it look fantastic!

PositiveThinking:  They don’t scratch super easily, but they can get cloudy. I agree with the poster on the toothbrush method. I clean mine every three days, but you have to stay on top of it. I thought it would be a hassle, but I don’t mind. It’s so worth it to see how it sparkles after, and it only takes like two minutes. 

The other thing I love about white sapphires is just that- their color! My mom has a diamond about the same size, and it is of decent quality, but it looks positively yellow next to my sapphire (she commented on it, not me, I would not be one to notice). You just get a gemstone that looks like it is such lovely quality for so much less. 

Additionally, although I know there are bees here who disagree, I cannot tell my sapphire from a diamond. I have tried it on next to my mom’s diamond and my grandmother’s diamond, and there is no difference to the naked eye. I really think the everyday person cannot tell at all, although I proudly tell everyone it’s a sapphire! I just think it’s neat that it isn’t a dead giveaway, like some other alternatives.
