Blue Sapphire Engagement Ring Inspiration



We love how blue sapphires can be budget friendly. You’ll find rings on our roundup starting at just $180. We couldn’t help but also include a breathtaking splurge ring for $34,500. All other rings ring up for between $1,000 and $8,000.




You may be wondering if all blue sapphire stones are created equal? Classic blue sapphire is a deep hue akin to navy. But some gems sparkle with a more subtle, paler blue, so see what appeals to you as you scroll through the picks. As far as the accent stones, blue sapphire dazzles against white diamonds, and set in white gold. But some picks afford you the option of selecting yellow or rose gold as well, which will really give your ring a special touch.




Modern, vintage, simple, ornate. It’s all here, and we can’t wait to show you every detail of these simply stunning blue sapphire rings.



Other Considerations:

Note that some blue sapphire is lab-created, while other stones are naturally-occuring.
