Clarity

 A sapphire should be clean when seen with naked eye, so try not to choose a sapphire with visible inclusions since a sapphire with too many inclusion will look less clear and detract from the colour as well. It will be better if you look at the stone under a loupe to find out whether the internal inclusions are long or not, since internal long inclusions will make the stone more vulnerable to crack when hit.

Cut and Shape

Because of the durability and the way it is formed, sapphire can be cut into any shape like you wish. The most common shapes for sapphire are round, pear, square, oval, and trillion. It is up to you to choose any cut and shape for the sapphire but always remember a good cut will enhance the beauty and sparkling of the stone.

Treated and Synthetic Sapphire

For improving the colour, many blue sapphires on the market are treated with heat. For high quality stones, untreated ones are much more expensive than treated ones. Whether it is treated or not may not be visible unless the sapphire is looked under a microscope so you should always ask about that when you choose the sapphire. There are also synthetic sapphires which usually are less expensive than genuine ones. The genuineness is another thing you should ask about when purchasing a sapphire. Synthetic sapphire looks more like glass and has extreme clarity than genuine ones. You can also ask for the certification to ensure the quality of the stone, especially if the sapphire you purchase is the expensive one.

When it is about sapphire diamond ring, usually it is the sapphire which becomes the main stone, with a bigger size than diamond. The sapphire usually is single stone, with many smaller diamonds surround it, or set in both sides of the sapphire. It will look more beautiful especially when the diamonds are white or colourless ones. The setting can made of any metals, but platinum or white gold will attract viewers to the colour of the sapphire.
