Diamonds may be forever, but sapphires are soaring in popularity when it comes to engagement rings.

According to auction house Bonhams, there's been a major resurgence of interest in coloured, with more and more couples choosing sapphires to affirm their commitment.

The Duchess of Cambridge famously sports her late mother-in-law's sapphire and diamond ring, Javier Bardem presented a three carat sapphire ring to actress Penelope Cruz to mark their engagement and Victoria Beckham has added a large oval cut sapphire to her collection of engagement rings.

According to the head of jewellery at Bonhams, sapphires symbolise truth, sincerity and faithfulness – the perfect ingredients for an upcoming marriage.
