When you are shopping for white sapphire necklaces, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the sapphire. A fine white sapphire is perfectly colorless with very good clarity, since the lack of color means inclusions will be more visible.

The larger the carat weight, the more a white sapphire will cost per carat.
