We would like to clarify right at the start that, the small sapphire ring seen on the left with star shaped design is not one of the Kaisilver jewels offered for sale. This small sapphire gold ring is an antique jewel found in the U.K. Media reports in July 2011 announced that a metal detectorist in the U.K had come across an old sapphire ring. Researchers claim that this small round sapphire ring most probably belonged to Viking or Anglo-Saxon royalty. We have mentioned this in our report to explain how some ancient sapphire rings, had modest gem sizes despite their royalty related origins. Just for your information, the round blue sapphire in this old gold ring is just 6mm in size. You will also notice that the gem quality is not the best that you would find in Ceylon or even in India around the 7th to 11th century. This is what prompted our experts to bring you this article related to small sapphire gemstone rings.
Small sapphire rings are not something new, infact the concept of setting small or even tiny gemstones in a close formation in jewelry has been going on for decades. Jewelry designers and seasoned jewelry buyers refer to these as clustered rings, bangles, pendants etc. Such a sapphire ring would normally have a gemstone size of around 2mm to 3mm, you would need more than one sapphire in such a ring. However what we are going to discuss in this report is about 'small' sapphires that are much bigger than 2mm or 3mm in size.
We will refer to sapphires in the 5mm to 6mm range, this with a good reason. Small sapphire rings with gemstone sizes in this range, can be made as single gem stone rings too. The gem size is neither too small nor large to see a price jump in gem cost. Rubies, sapphires, diamonds, emeralds and even tanzanite are gems that show a sharp increase in price per carat, when the gem size moves up. To give you an idea, a 5mm round blue sapphire could weigh around 0.5 to 0.6 carats. Similarly a 6mm round blue sapphire would weigh around 0.80 to 1 carat. Sapphire pricing (per carat) for medium to good grade quality in the 1 carat and below sizes is modest. But move on to 7mm which is just 1mm more than 6mm, and the weight moves to 1.2 to 1.5 carats. The price per carat for the same quality as the 6mm gem, could now increase as by as much as 30% to 40%. Keeping the interest of the buyer in mind, we could say that a mere 1mm increase in size cannot justify a big jump in price per carat - but that is reality. This is whey we refer to 5mm and 6mm gems when talking about small sapphire gemstone rings.
Let us now see what other benefits a small gemstone size for your ring brings. Considering that your small blue sapphire ring had just one gem stone, you could presume that the overall dimensions of the ring would not be large. Designs like the old sapphire ring shown on the top of this report are not common, this ring shows large dimensions with a small gem size. We will provide good examples below of small gem stone rigns suitable for small sapphire gems. When the dimensions of a ring are not very large, the metal weight required to maintain strength and durability of the ring structure is moderate. This will translate to a lower metal cost component especially, if you had to talk about a small sapphire ring in 14k or 18k gold. Though silver prices are also moving up, the metal is still very much more affordable as compared to gold. Remember that we are not talking about starving your small blue sapphire ring of metal weight, this would make the ring flimsy and prone to bending and deforming. All that we mean is that, the metal weight will be proportionate to the ring dimensions. And, since the dimensions are not large, the metal weight will not be too high.
It needs to be understood that if you loved sapphires and wanted to get a hefty gem stone size for the gem, there is no problem if your budget can support the costs. Kaisilver sources sapphires from Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon), Thailand (Kanchanaburi), Madagascar and Australia. With direct procurement from the mining pits, we can get you sapphires that are priced at 200 U.S$ per carat or upto and beyond 3,000 U.S$ per carat. What we hope to achieve by compiling this report is to provide jewelry buyers looking for moderate prices or small sapphire rings, with suggestions and advice that will enable them to make the right decisions.
There is more to small sapphire rings than we have just talked about. Gem and jewelry buyers often buy or wear gem stone jewelry for an interesting reason. They hope to get the benefit of the 'super natural' powers that they believe exists in gems. This is about tradition and belief, we mention it here by way of information and do not pass any judgement on such personal beliefs. For example, it is believed that blue sapphire makes a person think and act with honest and clean intentions. Ancient stories exist about the power of sapphires too. In the ancient days, it would most probably relate to only blue sapphires. Those were the times when gemological sciences were unknown, people just believed that every blue gem was a sapphire and every red gem was a ruby. You might have heard of how Cleopatra mistook per green peridot gems for 'precious emeralds'.
You do not have to go back to ancient times, to see how beliefs in gems encourage people to wear specific gem stone jewelry. The tradition of birthstones is as popular today as it was many centuries ago. The belief that every birth date can be linked to a zodiac sign and a gemstone, is the foundation of the birthstone charts. The September birthstone is sapphire, and a substantial portion of the sapphire rings purchased each year are worn as birth stone rings.
From the above discussion we can conclude that, when a gemstone is worn for it's meaning - the gem size is really not relevant. So if wearing a sapphire birth stone is supposed to bring good and keep away evil, a small sapphire ring would have the same 'power' and significance as a very expensive sapphire ring. Once again, if you are looking for a sapphire birth stone ring and have a big budget that is in the 3,000 U.S$ to 5,000 U.S$ category, you need not worry about getting a small sapphire gem stone ring, Kaisilver or other sources will give you larger and higher budget ring options.

Small Sapphire Gem Stone Ring
This is an interesting option for a gold or silver ring with small sapphires, notice that this sort of design concept uses many small sapphires. The gem size in such multi gem stone rings is generally in the 2mm to 3mm category. It is not common to make single gem stone rings when the gem size is this small. In the case of sapphires, rubies, emeralds and even tanzanite - a gem size of around 5mm or preferrably 6mm is suited to making small sapphire rings with a single gem stone. Just for your information, we would like to say that the specifications of the RG108 sapphire and diamond ring from kaisilver is now crafted with gold weight of around 15 to 20 grams.

Just keep in mind there is no hard and fast rule for any jewelry design concept, it is your ring and you know what is best for you. With the 5mm to 6mm gem stone size, the important thing is that you get good gem quality for the medium or good grade options.

Pink Sapphire Custom Ring
A very interesting sapphire gem stone ring, a modest 6mm square princess cut pink sapphire perfectly cut and set in a gold or sterling silver mounting. One very important thing that you should know about both rubies and sapphires is that, square shapes are not as common as round or oval shapes. This along with the fact that, square gems weigh more than round gems of the same size mean that, you could end up paying more for the gem stone when choosing a square sapphire ring. The RG233 Kaisilver pink sapphire ring can demonstrate one more important fact related to the pricing of expensive gems like sapphires. If you had to compare the same quality of sapphires, in 6mm and 7mm size - a mere 1mm in size increase for the 7mm square or round sapphire would add a substantial amount to the price of the stone. So if you had to work out an equation between beauty, size and price, the 6mm size always gives you better value for your money. Such issues are ofcourse not relevant if you have a bigger budget to spend on your small sapphire gem stone ring. Get to know this Kai Silver sapphire ring better, see the full report ... more.
