The popularity of platinum sapphire wedding bands has continued to grow in leaps and bounds over the last 5 years with no sign of slowing down, with more and more people who are looking for custom wedding bands unique to themselves has made the sapphire wedding band one of the most sought after rings in the jewelry market today.
Sapphire rings defy conventional and traditional plain diamond bands, they stand out as favorable alternative to ordinary diamond ring. Here we go over what is available in finished rings and custom sapphire bands with just sapphires or a mix of sapphires with diamonds coupled with choices in metals from platinum to Rose gold, White and of course yellow gold.Sapphires versus Diamonds
Diamond wedding bands offer a clean classic look with many options on designs from the eternity band to bezel set rings in a variety of alloys from gold to platinum, with diamonds even though you do get the sparkle you will end up losing the color.
If you are looking at adding color to your wedding band then sapphires are the best choice, with the durability of a sapphire higher than any other gemstone they will not only last for generations they will give your wedding band the color a diamond cannot. Natural sapphires are not only available in a variety of cuts but more importantly a variety of colors with blue being the most favored hue, we have also seen many of our customers opting for yellow and pink sapphire wedding bands with most mixed with diamonds to balance out the final ring design.
Below we show off one of our unique Custom Sapphire Wedding Bands finished in platinum and set with vivid blue natural sapphires set in a row across the band instead of down the shank.
Factors to consider when looking for a Sapphire Platinum Wedding Band
Multitone, three-stone, solitaire, bezel, antique and split shank are some of the most common setting styles. The solitaire style is particularly popular because it accommodates a wide variety of cuts.
The ring can be round, oval, pear, emerald-cut or heart shaped and even princess cut sapphires & diamonds.
Sapphires are famous for their blue hue which can range from a deep royal blue always the way down to a baby blue hue but they are also available in what we call fancy sapphires, which range from Pinks, Yellows, Purples, White, and Red (ruby) with many colors in between.

Natural and synthetic sapphires
Most all sapphire wedding bands are set with synthetic sapphires or sapphires were the color has been chemically enhanced, this is many due to A, the supply of natural sapphires being limited and hard to find and B, finding natural sapphires in the quantity most large manufacturers need is extremely hard to find. Always ask the jewelry store if the sapphires set are true natural gemstones.
With us custom making each ring by hand coupled with our own office in Sri Lanka has allowed us to accumulate a very good selection of natural sapphires over the years creating exquisite wedding band designs, all for sale at wholesale prices or less.
As noted earlier, sapphire can be combined with several metals to make great wedding rings. In our case, a combination of platinum and sapphire encapsulates beauty and class with most of our rings today made in platinum 950.
