White Sapphires



PRICING

One of the biggest appeals of getting a white sapphire center stone would be the fact that they are far more affordable than a diamond. Diamonds can start at $4000 for a 1 carat stone, whereas a Sapphire can start at $500-$900 for a 1 carat stone.

HARDNESS

Sapphires are a hard and scratch resistant mineral, so white sapphire engagement rings are very durable. On the Mohs Scale of Hardness, a sapphire is rated as a 9. This makes it the second hardest natural stone used in jewelry. A diamond, which is the hardest, scores a 10.

SIZE + SHAPE AVAILABILITY

Both white diamonds and white sapphires come in about any shape and size, which leaves a lot of flexibility with the design process. Every one of our engagement rings can be made with the white sapphire of your choice.

GRADING SYSTEM

Unfortunately, a cut grading system for sapphires does not exist. All White Sapphire stones are non-certified.

SPARKLE + SHINE

A white diamond will sparkle more than than a white sapphire. Diamonds have more scintillation, which refers to the rainbow colors that you can typically see a diamond giving off in the sunlight. A white sapphire does not display any scintillation. However, white sapphires still sparkle in their own right. They tend to look more see-through than diamonds. See the image below to reference the two side by side: the Oval-cut White Diamond is on the LEFT and the Round-cut White Sapphire is on the RIGHT.
