Who says you need a engagement ring with a diamond as a center stone? A popular trend right now is choosing a non diamond engagement ring — in part because of the money you can save — and one such classic example is the sapphire engagement ring, beloved by celebrities and royalty. Below are six famous sapphire engagement rings, spanning 70 years.

Currently, a one carat, gorgeous AAA quality sapphire runs approximately $1,500, whereas a one carat certified diamond is ballpark $3,000 – $4,000 and up. That’s less than half! Talking about price is not very sexy but if you’re looking for ways to save on an engagement ring, yet you still want to invest in a quality ring with long-term value and beauty, you should consider a sapphire engagement ring.
