Rainbow of choice
Sapphires and Rubies are good because they come from the mineral Corundum and have remarkable hardness of 9.0 on the Moh’s scale. The highest grade belongs to a diamond, but at the same time it is inherently fragile in specific directions: falling to the tile floor, for example, can break the stone whereas corundum is much more solid.
Today it is also popular to present fancy colored Diamonds, especially pink and yellow ones that are both brilliant and strong. Although comparing their cost with the Sapphires in the same colors, the latter ones could be more reasonable. Sapphires have other romantic colors suitable for the occasion of an engagement. Padparadsha Sapphires are extremely popular and loved in the East; they combine a pink and orange color that instantly reminds you of the warm colors of sunset or the lotus flower.
