Blue Sapphire

The most famous and popular sapphire represents romance and royalty. As a result, sapphire is a wonderful choice for an engagement ring. In fact, Prince Charles gave Lady Diana Spencer an 18-carat sapphire engagement ring. Princess Di wore this infamous ring until her death in 1997 and it was later bequeathed to Kate Middleton. Available in three different shades, Chatham sapphire gems retain that twilight blue color and pure clarity seen only in the best of mined gems.

Give Blue Sapphire as …

The September birthstone

The zodiac gem for Taurus, Virgo and Libra

The 5th and 45th anniversary stone

A famous alternative to the diamond for engagement rings

A symbol of beauty, faithfulness, and inner peace

Chatham Lab Grown Blue Sapphire

Since color in sapphire often follows the crystal structure in color zones, blue sapphire is very difficult to produce. Even the best sapphires have different shades of blue which is why Chatham offers lab grown sapphires in light, medium and dark blue.

Chatham always delivers the finest faceted blue sapphires by cutting away 80% of the rough. Our lab grown sapphires are cleaner and brighter than the best grown under the earth. Plus, one of our lab grown sapphires of equal size and quality to an earth-mined sapphire can be as much as $10,000 less per carat!

Chatham sapphires are cut in a wide selection of shapes to fit any style. For example, two of our Chatham-exclusive flame-cut blue sapphires are found on either side of the center stone in our Eternal Flame collection of engagement rings. Chatham lab grown sapphires also come with a lifetime guarantee on top of their durability, so you never have to worry about chipping your sapphire engagement ring. While we think our lab grown sapphire’s clarity and beautiful deep color can rival any found under the earth, we invite you to visit a Chatham retailer to compare the two gems side-by-side and decide for yourself.

About Sapphires

Next to emerald and ruby, blue sapphire is one of the most popular colored gems in the world. With a history as rich as its color, it’s not hard to see why. Some ancient societies believed that Earth rested upon a sapphire which colored the sky blue.

Sapphires are the reason we say “true blue” and brides wear “something blue” on their wedding day. Today, “something blue” is often the engagement ring. The gem of fidelity is the perfect choice to symbolize a promise, especially since Princess Diana and Kate Middleton both received the same beautiful blue sapphire engagement ring.

Sapphires are durable and easy to care for with excellent toughness and a hardness second only to the diamond. Giving this gem to your loved one will make her feel like royalty every day.
