Sapphires Are Perfect For Heirloom Jewels

Decades ago, Prince Charles from the British Royal family gave Lady Diana a gorgeous sapphire and diamond ring. The ring was to make an engagement that led to a lavish and heavily publicized royal wedding. Diana was often seen wearing that amazing sapphire ring, the marriage then went through rough weather and the gorgeous lady lost her life in a shocking way. Decades later, Prince William the son of Lady Diana was preparing to bring Kate Middleton into the fold of royalty, he gifted her a sapphire and diamond ring on the occasion. This ring had in a very special way linked Kate to Lady Diana. The ring was an heirloom ring as it contained the same sapphire gem that was set in Lady Diana's ring, the jewel that she received from Prince Charles. The ring was remade using gold that already belonged to the palace. Interestingly this is not the first time that sapphires have been passed down from generation to generation in British Royalty. The RG224PS Pink Sapphire Ring, could be ordered with blue, pink, green, yellow or orange sapphires. You could even mix different sapphire colors in the same ring. 

It is generally seen that rubies, sapphires and diamonds are most often seen in heirloom rings and jewels, let us understand why this is so. We will take sapphires as an example, and try to explain why this gem is so suited for heirloom jewels.
