From dazzling diamonds to colour-popping gems, bling continues to be a sought-after statement by brides-to-be. If you're looking for the perfect precious stone to adorn your ring finger, here is some insight into the options on offer. 

Sapphire

Make like Kate Middleton and Princess Diana with a sapphire ring that not only displays the deepest shade of on-trend blue, but is a timeless colour that will never go out of fashion. A beautiful heirloom to pass through the generations, a sapphire ring can even serve as your 'something blue'.
