Blue Diamonds or Blue Sapphires


Gold Bengals with Blue Diamonds

Blue Diamonds

I came across this pair of gold Bengals with small blue diamonds flush set on the exterior surface of ring as well as  on 8 circular dome.They were sparkling with beautiful blue lights.

I had never seen blue diamonds, they are rare and I thought about 45.52  carats Hope Diamond, the symbol of perfection and value. I also remember reading about its changing color  from blue, violet to ultra fiery orange, red; after few minutes getting exposed in ultra violet lights.

Of course these diamonds did not change colors.  They were very expensive but the jeweler gave another option of  making  with Sapphire in much less price . Sapphire is a variety of the mineral species corundum. The name “Sapphire” comes from the Persian word “safir”, meaning “beloved of Saturn”.

Sapphires might be better choice as  some  Sapphires do change colors.  Also, the color can be intensified with heat.  Mohs (hardness)  scale of  Sapphire is 9 which works for this setting. So the bracelet or bengals made up of intense, color changing blue sapphires would be the best choice in terms of its aesthetics, functionality and value.
