Sapphires are available in 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 cornflower blue shades.
However, blue is not your only option when purchasing a sapphire. A little known fact is that 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 Mohs 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 rarity of their colour. Deeply coloured natural sapphires are the most valuable of all sapphires. Australian sapphires are among the more affordable options and can be just as beautiful as the Ceylonese varieties. Sapphires with silky inclusions or of paler hues are often heat treated to achieve more even and intense colours.
