From a durability standpoint, no gemstone can match a diamond. The sapphire, on the other hand, is a close second. So, no matter which jewel you choose, you won't have to be concerned about chips or scratches. Affordability dictates that diamonds cost more than other gemstones. Consider VS1 or VS2 Very Slightly Included (VS) diamonds if you don't want to spend a lot but still want a colorless/white diamond.

Compared to diamonds, sapphires are heavier in mass (density). When compared to a 1 carat diamond, it will appear to be smaller. When a gem reaches 4 carats in weight, its value skyrockets significantly. Choosing a sapphire in the 1 to 2 carat range is a great way to appreciate the stone's exceptional beauty.

Whether you're shopping for a mother's day gift or an engagement present for your fiancée, these two pieces are perfect. To add a splash of color, blue and pink sapphires are excellent choices. For all time, however, only the dazzling brilliance and unending sparkle of a diamond will do. Make it a point to always check the certificate of authenticity, no matter what you choose.
