All About The Sapphire Gemstone

 

This gem is one of our favourites by far as believe it or not, it is available in a rainbow of colours, one of the most strong gemstones jewellers can use.  Hence you will see this gem though out our collections.

Sapphire is more rare and expensive in its pure, un-treated form, although heat treated sapphire are more commonly used. Ranging from vivid blue hues all the rainbow colours, it can make for a beautiful statement in a piece of custom jewellery or modern heirlooms. Long associated with wisdom and royalty, sapphire, also the traditional Virgo birthstone, complements the Virgo’s innate qualities, lending strength and focus, as well as the ability to pick out fraud and untruthfulness. Probably because of these qualities, sapphire, the traditional virgo birthstone, has been one of the most prized gemstones throughout history. Here are some historical facts about Sapphires:

  • The rulers of Ancient Persia believed it was the reflected of sapphire stones which made the sky blue.
  • People in the ancient Far East wore sapphires around their necks to prevent them from falling prey to jealously and bad luck.
  • Sapphires have long been believed to bring gifts to those who wear them of happiness, fulfilment, inner satisfaction and protection from illness.
  • In medieval Europe, people believed that wearing sapphires suppressed negative thoughts.

 A very versatile stone for custom jewellery too which is equally best offset against an ethical white or yellow metal, the stone complements a variety of skin tones and is stunning faceted in a pair of earrings or a ring which allow the light to bounce off it. For a real show-stopper, a sapphire edged with white diamonds or smaller white stones will hark back to the days when it was prized by royals and will make you feel like one, too.
