Style Guide: Blue Sapphire Wedding Rings
What do Penelope Cruz, Elizabeth Hurley, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge have in common? Well, apart from being famous and beautiful, all three have eschewed traditional diamonds and opted for another sort of ring: a sapphire wedding ring. These rings are alluring, original, and could even count as a bride’s “something blue” on her wedding day.
Gemstone wedding rings aren’t completely unheard of. In fact, choosing gemstones can be a popular choice for couples on a budget, as most precious gems are less expensive than diamonds. The trend is popular among celebrities too. Singer Jessica Simpson wears a ruby wedding ring in honor of her July birthday, and even first lady and style icon Jackie Kennedy wore a wedding ring that prominently displayed emerald gems alongside a diamond.
