Step aside Kate Middleton, it's someone else's turn to shine in a modern blue sapphire engagement ring! Duchess Kate sparked a trend with her blue sapphire engagement ring (which was Princess Diana's ring previously) and we have no shortage of love for September's birthstone. Aside from being visually stunning, sapphires make the ideal "true blue" choice for an engagement ring — the stone symbolizes honesty, and fidelity. Plus it makes a pretty spectacular "something blue" on the wedding day. From classic Victorian-inspired styles, to rows of sapphires fit for the most modern of brides-to-be, we've got 10 sapphire engagement rings that will make a serious statement!
