Once you decide to walk down the aisle, one of the most important things that may pop into your mind will be the elegant bridal wedding sets. After all, it symbolizes your union with your man for a lifetime. Unlike the traditional brides, most women love to flaunt something unique and captivating these days. So, the clichéd diamond wedding sets are kind of out of the question. Besides, you can save quite an amount by opting out of classic diamond wedding sets. Note that you are likely to handle a number of financial responsibilities at this time, such as the whole wedding, post-wedding parties, honeymoon, house, vehicle, etc.
That being said, one of the trending options these days when it comes to bridal wedding sets is gemstone wedding bands. In case you find your wedding bands incomplete without diamonds, you may add some melee diamonds to your wedding band along with colorful gemstones. This will be way affordable when compared to a solitaire ring or an all-around diamond band.
When it comes to gemstones, there is a plethora of options such as rubies, emeralds, sapphires, topaz, aquamarine, Opal, pearls, etc. However, the former three options are usually considered for bridal wedding sets, especially Sapphires. Even though sapphires are available in multiples colors, the most popular one that is sure to draw the attention of every single person is blue sapphires. Plus, its combination with sparkling diamonds is extraordinary. Unsurprisingly, most royalties and celebrities tend to flaunt sapphire diamond rings.
However, choosing the right sapphires is not as easy as choosing diamonds. When it comes to diamonds, the criteria to pick a perfect diamond is the 4C’s; cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. In the case of sapphires, you must consider the place of its origin as well as the subjected treatment apart from its 4C’S. Note that there are several treatment options for sapphires such as the heat treatment, beryllium treatment, fissure filling, surface diffusion, etc. These treatments are mostly done to enhance the appeal of sapphires, especially its color.
The color is the most important factor of a gemstone. Note that sapphires are graded on the basis of its saturation, hue, and tone. Needless to mention, untreated sapphires with vivid hues are the most sought after ones. On the other hand, the cheapest option is the fissure filled ones. While it may look appealing in terms of the color, it will not be a good option for your wedding bands since it might not last as much as the untreated ones.
