Sapphire Engagement Rings: A Proposal to Remember this Christmas

What if your proposal was as unique as your relationship? And if you could choose a ring that didn’t follow tradition “just because”?

Our customers choose sapphire engagement rings for their partners who want to stray away from the classic diamond. Perfect for the creative and confident woman, and for couples who would rather splash out on a wedding, house or once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon.

And with the holidays catching up with us, people in love are searching for Christmas engagement rings set with stunning sapphires. There’s magic in the air at this time of year. This is your chance to grab it with both hands.

Is proposing at Christmas a good idea for you?

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year.” - Song by Andy Williams

Christmas is as good a time as any to declare your love for someone. In fact, it might even be the best time.

December is the most popular month for proposals in Australia - people especially love choosing Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve.

Celebrate the season and piggyback on an overall more positive mood. If it suits you, you could even share the moment with family and friends, and turn your proposal into an intimate Christmas engagement party.

Why not ring in Christmas and the New Year with amazing new memories to look back on?

A personalised Christmas proposal

“I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together.” - Song by Jack Johnson

Proposing at Christmas means plenty of opportunities to be creative or romantic. Or both. 

If you need a little inspiration to spark one of the best moments of your lives, here are some ideas to make your Christmas proposal extra special.

1. Hide the ring in a Christmas bauble or a stocking. You can now buy personalised ring box baubles to hide your surprise until the big day.

2. Choose the perfect setting. One of our customers proposed in Japan this year - breathtaking! Remember you don’t have to cross the globe to find the perfect setting. Under the stars, on the beach, or even in your own home all make for a special proposal setting. Just choose a destination that means something to the pair of you.

3. Capture the moment. Try discretely setting up a camera or have a trusted friend film the proposal.

4. Gather your thoughts before you pop the question. Make a few notes so you know what to say when you unveil the Christmas engagement ring. What does this person mean to you? What are your most cherished memories? Your hopes for the future? What inside jokes can you share?

5. Consider the music. Play a song that means something to you both as a couple for extra romance points.

6. Let them personalise their own ring. If you think your loved one would prefer a custom ring, why not buy a loose sapphire and present it in a beautiful box? You can create a personalised piece of jewellery together in the new year.

A sparkling alternative to engagement rings at Christmas

“Love isn’t what makes the world go ‘round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” - Franklin P. Jones, American journalist

We understand that buying a ring as a surprise gift can be difficult. Knowing their size and preferred styles can easily build the pressure for you. 

So here’s an alternative:

Many of our customers prefer to buy earrings or pendants in the run-up to the festive period. For a safe bet they’re bound to love, here are some of our favourite Christmas engagement ring alternatives. 

What is the 3-salary rule for an engagement ring?

Rules are there to be broken.

Here at Sapphire Dreams, we’ve heard all the “rules”. We’ve heard that you’re supposed to spend three month’s salary on an engagement ring. Some people believe you should spend one month’s salary. Others say you should always buy a ring that’s the average cost of an engagement ring at that time. 

And the rumours don’t stop there.

We’d like to remind you that that’s all they are: rumours. Ignore advice like this when you’re shopping for a Christmas engagement ring. Instead, go with your gut. Simply choose the ring that’s right for you and your budget. The price tag doesn’t define your relationship.

Timely delivery for your festive proposal

There’s still time to make this Christmas magical. 

The perfect Christmas engagement ring + the perfect time to pop the question. A match made in heaven.
