Sapphire is hard and durable, a well designed and crafted sapphire gold ring can stay in shape for decades - with a modest amount of care. Sapphires are tough, hard, rare and expensive - the price of this gemstone has never shown a significant fall even in depressed economic conditions.

Sapphire Colors: No doubt that reference to a gold ring with sapphire, generally implies a blue sapphire but, Kaisilver offers much more than that. Science has in recent times proved beyond doubt that, nature has bestowed us with a wide spectrum of sapphire colors. So when you choose to pick a sapphire gold ring from Kaisilver, open your mind to all the sapphire colors that we provide. There is a notion that blue sapphire is somehow more meaningful and valuable, as compared to sapphires in other colors. For centuries blue was the only color known when it comes to sapphire gems. It is therefore not surprising that, most sapphire gold rings are crafted with blue sapphires. The Persians had at some point in history, mistakenly referred to blue lapis lazuli as sapphire! They even believed that the earth was resting on a huge sapphire and that, the reflection from the blue sapphire gave us the sky. Back to gem colors for a sapphire gemstone ring, here are some of the gorgeous colors that should be part of your jewelry collection. Kaisilver silver or gold sapphire rings, can be crafted with white, pink, blue, yellow or orange sapphires. If you choose to go for a sapphire ring design with many gems, you can combine multiple sapphire colors in the same ring. We talk about gold colors below, try to bring up some interesting color combinations between the sapphire and gold color that you choose. Just remember that the more unique and signature your sapphire gold ring, the more gorgeous it is. 

Price Logistics: While there is no standard price for a sapphire gold ring, it helps to understand the price logistics of the gemstone. Remember that we are talking about sapphires and gold - two expensive components of your ring. Natural sapphires come in various grades, the price could range from $500 to over $5,000 per carat. Most sapphire gold ring buyers would have a price point in their minds, we all budget our spending. Kaisilver sources sapphires directly from the mines, no middlemen and no multiple profit margins added to the price tag.

10k 14k 18k Gold: We did say that 14k sapphire rings are popular, let us briefly touch upon the 14k, 18k and 10k standard for gold jewelry. Kaisilver will allow you to pick a sapphire gemstone ring in 10k, 14k or 18k gold - let's understand their meaning. Since pure gold is too soft to make sturdy jewelry, it is combined with a few other metals to increase its hardness. So this means that a gram of the resulting gold alloy would contain, a specific amount of gold and the rest of the weight would be made up by the other metals. Since gold is an expensive metal, it is only right that you know, just much gold is contained in your sapphire gold ring. When we talk about 10k gold the metal would have 42% gold and the rest would be formed of the other metals, 10k gold is harder than both 14k and 18k gold. Coming to a 14k gold sapphire ring, the metal would consist of 58% gold and 42% would include the other metals. 14k gold is a bit softer than 10k gold but harder than 18k gold. You then have 18k sapphire rings where,  the gold content in the metal would be 75% with the balance 25% being composed of the other metals. As you might have guessed, 18k gold is softer than 10k gold and a bit softer than 14k gold. So if you had to talk about the same sapphire gemstone ring being made in 10k, 14k and 18k gold - the price of the ring would move up as you went from 10k to 18k. At the same time the hardness of of the metal would drop as you move from 10k to 18k. It is widely agreed that 14k gold provides the right balance between, metal hardness and gold content - this is what makes 14k gold popular for sapphire gemstone rings. Before we move to the paragraph on gold color, we must say that, the hardness of the gold alloy that we just talked about, does not depend on the color of the gold. As an example, when we talk about an 18k sapphire gold ring, the hardness of the metal would remain the same across all three gold colors (white, pink and yellow). 

Gold Colors: Sapphire gold rings could be ordered in yellow, white or pink gold - this whether you order a 10k, 14k or 18k gold ring. A small technical detail about gold color. We mentioned that other metals are added to gold to increase the hardness of the metal. By specifically selecting these 'other' metals, it is possible to impart a color to the resulting alloy. This is how gold colors are derived. Now let us talk about gold color with reference to sapphire gem color. Remember that, we did say that sapphire gold rings, can be crafted with a range of sapphire colors. When choosing the gold color for your sapphire gemstone ring, follow your choice but keep a few things in mind. Blue, pink and green sapphires would look just fine in white or yellow gold rings. If you fancy getting a pink gold sapphire gemstone ring, review the gem and gold color - one very interesting and offbeat, combination would be pink sapphire in pink gold. Let us consider yellow sapphire gold rings separately as the same gem in yellow or white gold, gives a totally different look. If you really want the color of yellow sapphire to take center stage, a white gold ring should be your choice. Yellow sapphire in yellow gold, creates a much warmer tone - the gem appears to merge into the ring but, for its sparkle and luster. If you order your gold ring from Kaisilver, you can request for sample images that, show the sapphire color of your choice in different gold colors.
