About Sapphire Contemporary Engagement Rings by David West
Engagement rings have been the ultimate symbol of love for thousands of years. In ancient Egypt, they wore rings on the third finger of the left hand to mark where the "vein of love" went directly to the heart, starting a tradition that continues today. When pledging your love with a unique engagement ring, you are starting your own family tradition. The most important value factor to consider when shopping for sapphire contemporary engagement rings is the quality of the center stone. Gemvara hand-selects top quality conflict-free gems that are expertly cut for maximum beauty. Sapphire is a very durable gem that wears well over generations. Sapphire is the gem of the soul, a symbol of truth and faith. Sapphire comes in blue, of course, but also pink, yellow and white, which are known as fancy sapphire. Our unrivalled selection of engagement rings by Bijoux & Bijoux, David West, Tony Rodrigues, and other talented jewelry designers means you can find an engagement ring that perfectly symbolizes your relationship. Clean sapphire contemporary engagement rings with mild dish soap: use a soft brush where dust collects. When taking off your engagement ring, don't pull on the gemstone: this won't damage the gem but it can, over time, stretch the metal that holds it in place, making the setting less secure. Be careful when removing your ring to wash your hands. Don't leave it on the rim of a sink where it can slip down the drain! Gemvara's fine quality sapphire contemporary engagement rings are designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.

Sapphire is the gemstone of truth. In ancient times, a gift of a sapphire was a pledge of honesty and devotion. Kate Middleton's sapphire engagement ring is the latest in a long tradition of royal sapphires. When shopping for sapphire jewelry, the most important factors to consider are quality, color and cut of the sapphire. The more vibrant and bright the hue, the more valuable the sapphire will be. Also, the larger the carat weight, the more the sapphire will cost per carat. Before their final polish, most sapphires are heat-enhanced to almost 2,000 degrees in order to improve the color and clarity. This stable treatment does not require special care and does not reduce the gem's value. Sapphire is the September birthstone, the 5th and 45th wedding anniversary gem, and the zodiac gem for Virgo. All Gemvara jewelry is made to order, which ensures that a premium-quality sapphire will be hand-selected to perfectly suit your design. Crafted in the United States, Gemvara's fine sapphire jewelry is precious and personal, surely to be passed down for generations to come.
