We Just LOVE Green Sapphires: 2024’s Continuing Trend for Engagement Rings

Updated: Jun 6

In the realm of gemstones, sapphires have long held a cherished place, often celebrated for their vibrant blue hues. However, a new star is rising in the world of fine jewelry: the green sapphire. Gaining popularity from 2022 onwards, green sapphires are emerging as a top choice for engagement rings, captivating hearts with their unique and natural beauty. We absolutely love the green tones in the Vu Jewellers workshop it's been a real struggle to not just keep them all for ourselves! Note to self...Must NOT keep any more stones...MUST be professional and actually let our customers have them lol!

The Unique Beauty of Green Sapphires

Green sapphires possess a natural charm that sets them apart from their more traditional blue counterparts. Their hues range from delicate pastel greens to deep, forest-like shades and even multi-tones Parti sapphires, offering a spectrum of choices for those seeking something truly distinctive. The joy of green sapphires lies in their ability to capture light and exhibit a mesmerizing play of color, often enhanced by subtle hints of blue or yellow within the gem.

Unlike emeralds, (which we also love) but can be more delicate and prone to inclusions, green sapphires are part of the corundum family, renowned for their durability and hardness. This makes them an excellent choice for everyday wear (especially for all our super active Queenstown ladies!)... ensuring that your engagement ring remains as stunning and resilient as the day you first put it on.


In a world where individuality is increasingly celebrated, green sapphires offer a refreshing departure from the norm. Their distinctive color and rarity make them a perfect choice for couples who want their engagement ring to stand out. This unique appeal resonates with modern couples looking for a symbol of their one-of-a-kind love story.

Versatile Elegance

Green sapphires pair beautifully with a variety of metals and settings, from classic yellow gold to contemporary white gold and platinum. Their versatile nature allows for creative designs, whether you prefer a vintage-inspired setting or a sleek, modern look. This adaptability makes them a favorite in the Vu workshop.

Symbolism and Meaning

Green is often associated with renewal, growth, and harmony—qualities that perfectly encapsulate the journey of a shared life together. Choosing a green sapphire for an engagement ring can symbolize a couple’s commitment to growing and thriving together, making it a deeply meaningful choice.

Ethical and Sustainable Choice

As consumers become more conscious of the origins of their purchases, green sapphires offer an ethical alternative for engagement rings. Many green sapphires are sourced responsibly, with a focus on minimizing environmental impact and ensuring fair labor practices.

Celebrity Endorsement and Influence

The influence of celebrities cannot be underestimated. Jewellery featuring green gemstones in rings have captured the public’s imagination, from Taylor Swift and JLo to Victoria Beckham and Dua Lipa . As more celebrities embrace green gems, their allure continues to grow and we think this love for green will continue for a long while yet.

Green sapphires are more than just a trend; they represent a shift towards embracing individuality, hinting at our love for Mother Nature and timeless elegance in engagement rings. Their organic beauty, combined with their durability and ethical appeal, make them a perfect choice for couples embarking on their journey of love and commitment. As 2024 unfolds, green sapphires are poised to stay firmly in center stage, offering a stunning and meaningful alternative to traditional engagement ring choices. So, if you're ready to celebrate your unique love story with a touch of green, now is the perfect time to embrace the enchantment of green sapphires, so pop in and see Claire in the Vu workroom and she can show you all the loose sparklers we've hidden in the safe!
