Sapphires offer a rainbow of colour options and due to their hardness and wearability, are ideal for use in engagement rings. The most well-known type of sapphire is the blue sapphire, which can range in colour from deep royal blue (known as Australian Blue) to light periwinkle shades.
However, blue is not your only option when purchasing a sapphire. Unbeknownst to many, sapphires are part of the larger corundum family, a type of crystal that also includes the gemstone Ruby. Rubies are red corundum, and all other corundum, from pink and green to yellow and blue, are known as sapphires.
Diamonds are the hardest substance on earth, graded 10 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale. Sapphires, or corundum, are graded 9 on this same scale, and are thus very resistant to scratching and chipping and ideal for use in jewellery, particularly jewellery such as engagement and wedding rings that are worn daily.
The value of sapphires depends on their clarity and the intensity of their colour. Deeply coloured natural sapphires are the most valuable of all sapphires. Sapphires of lighter hues or less intense colour can be heat treated to achieve more intense colours, and can often be a more affordable option for jewellery.
