Blue sapphires have always been loved for their rich, mesmerizing blue color. This spellbinding, deep blue gemstone has been worn by royals for centuries and is always of favorite of those who favor a classic look. Yet, as we enter into 2020, it seems that the blue sapphire is experiencing a notable uptick in popularity. This year, we’ve noticed a strong rise in the popularity of blue sapphire engagement rings and blue sapphire jewelry in general.
Perhaps the blue sapphire has become even more popular because of the ongoing influence of Kate Middleton’s iconic blue sapphire engagement ring. Or, perhaps the blue sapphire is more popular because it perfectly matches Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year, Classic Blue. Whatever the reason, blue sapphire jewelry seems to be on track to be one of the biggest jewelry trends of the year.
To celebrate the surging popularity of the rich, regal sapphire, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite blue sapphire pieces. Whether you’re looking for an engagement ring, a new piece of fashion jewelry, or that something blue for your wedding, we have the perfect blue sapphire piece for you.
