A bright blue sapphire engagement ring automatically acts as 'something blue' at your wedding, but did you know that sapphires actually come in a range of other colours?

While many royal and celebrity brides, including Princess Kate, own stunning traditional sapphires, those looking for a more unusual gem can also get their hands on yellow, pink and purple colours, too.#

WATCH: We love royal engagement rings, but what would you do if you received an engagement ring you hated? The public reveal all...

What does a sapphire engagement ring symbolise?

Sapphires traditionally symbolise truth, love, sincerity and faithfulness, so it's clear why they are a popular choice for an engagement ring. The colour blue is also said to stand for wealth and royalty, while others have said sapphires have healing properties.

Princess Kate wears Princess Diana's engagement ring

One of the first people who spring to mind when you think of a sapphire engagement ring is Kate Middleton. Back in 2010, Prince William presented Kate with his late mother Princess Diana's former engagement ring, which consists of a sapphire stone surrounded by diamonds.

And she's in good company! Celebrities such as Elizabeth Hurley, Jenna Bush Hager, Charley Webb and Penelope Cruz have all sported huge blue sapphire rocks in the past.
