Sapphire represents peaceful existence, enlightenment and wisdom.
Royal blue is traditionally given on the 5th, 45th or 70th anniversary of marriage.

Even better: your sapphire and diamond ring can add sparkle, which means you can reduce the quality of the sapphire as needed. Lower clarity sapphires may seem a little dull, but diamond halo can offset this effect-not all sapphire and diamond ring are sapphires with diamond halo. You can use a sapphire solitaire with a diamond band, or even a sapphire center stone with two side diamonds.
