Jewelry is something very personal and says a great deal about your style, personality and preference. Also one’s taste in jewelry is innate and what may appeal to one may not necessarily please the other. One good thing is that since there are so many options available in jewelry ranging from diamonds, colored gemstones, pearls, beads and metals, that one has a vast selection of options to choose from.
One thing however is for certain, most women invariably opt for the dazzling diamonds (a diamond ring is something that can but always sweep a woman off her feet), for no matter what, they simply never seem to get enough of these dazzling beauties that are rightly called a woman’s best friend. But there has also always been a substantial tilt towards colored gemstones as well, with women vying to accumulate these vibrant colored gemstones in their personal jewelry collection. Sapphires for one have always remained a favorite with women and they seem to be in love with the magnificent blue hue of these stones. Especially sapphire rings have become much coveted as engagement rings since Princess Diana’s famous sapphire engagement ring.
If one is asked to choose between these two stones, the glittering diamond or the sensuous sapphire, you’re sure to get a fair number voting for both these stones. While diamonds score high due to their dazzle and shimmer, sapphires make up for their brilliant color that is simply breathtaking. Most often women who prefer vibrant colors and love to incorporate that in their jewelry prefer sapphires while ladies who enjoy the breathtaking shimmer of diamonds will have it no other way but this. The selection depends entirely on one’s personal liking and taste in jewelry.
Apart from their look and color there is not much else to differentiate between diamonds and sapphires. In fact both these stones are very hard in nature. Though diamonds are the hardest mineral, sapphires score only second to diamonds in hardness. One can say that both of these stones are equally sturdy and durable in nature.
The ideal combination of jewelry of course would be diamonds and sapphires set together in a single piece of jewelry which is sure to be a heady mix of color as well as glitter. But yes, if left to decide between these two stones, personal liking is sure to rule the one’s decision.
